The handicapped parking in front was all filled by non-handicapped cars. Forcing a 4-year Iraqi war vet with a shot hip to park in back by the dumpsters. Anotther handicapped man dropped his spouse off at the door in a wheelchair and parked down the street due to all of the handicapped parking being taken by non-placarded cars. The little waitress brought us a half-full bowl of soup 15 minutes after we were seated. She brought one-quarter full refill and never asked if we wanted a refill. She took our order and brought us the entrees without the salads. I asked for horseradish sauce. She went went back and got us the salads which we ate. I again asked her for the horseradish since the meat had been on the table for 15 minutes by then after eating the late arriving salads. I ordered the prime rib medium well but it was cooked to well done without a trace of pink left. It was as tough as shoe leather or horse meat. We asked for pop refills she said it's been hectic here even though the room was half-empty. I see they are doing Groupons there to try to get people to come back. If you don't have help better then that ditzy girl we won't be back.

Outstanding quick service. Fast home-style cooked food. Unlimited potato soup, " That's to died for." Quick refills offered on soup and vegatables. I will be back again and again.

Some really like this place. Its good food and acceptable service. It’s also very home spun and not too original. If you want some “Midwest charm” check it out, you won’t be disappointed. If you want a relaxing comfortable meal. Not quite your place.

Lunch and Dinner specials such as the all-you-can-eat fried chicken or fried cod on Sundays are affordable and very-filling meals in a friendly and family-oriented environment. The Corn Patch is famous for their potato soup (a family secret recipe) which comes unlimited with all meals. Check out The Corn Patch - a local favorite - for a delicious home-style meal.
