If visiting historic Nauvoo, this is a nice place to have lunch. Service is pleasant and food is good. We had the buffet. At the counter, they instruct how it works, because you can have varying numbers of food items. For example 1 meat and 2 veg and any additional veggies are $1 more.
I had the fried chicken, corn and cole slaw and my husband had the meat loaf, salad and green beans. We each got a slice of their potato bread. Everything was tasty and each meal was $5.99. How can you beat that? Salad bar is also an option. There is also an old fashioned soda fountain with homemade ice cream, sandwiches, pies, etc. They are open for breakfast and lunch in a historic building from 1912.

Go for the buffet on weekdays before noon. Good stuff! This place is now (9/2013) operated by same management as Hotel Nauvoo - a vast improvement over past experiences here!

We went to Grandpa John's for breakfast. We were seated immediately, but then apparently we became invisible. Just as we were about to walk out, someone finally came to get our order. It's not like they were busy. The problem was the staff were more concerned about how many salads to make for lunch rather than wait on the customers who were present for breakfast. Water glasses and coffee were not refilled. The hash browns were the frozen hash brown squares. Yuck!! The eggs were cooked properly though. The place was clean.
