“A True Family Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Wasn't expecting much when we walked in since it looked like the type of restaurant where seniors would eat dinner at 4 in the afternoon. Décor is a bit outdated and there is plenty of fried foods on the menu but we were pleasantly surprised. My husband, who enjoys eating, could not finish the turkey dinner he ordered. In fact we (4 adults, one 3 yr old, one 8 mo old) were able to get at least two more meals out of those leftovers. Go with the straight turkey and skip the fried stuff. There is a bar. Will definitely stop by next time we're in the area.

“Not like it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

I had been here many years ago and was thrilled it was still in business. We looked forward to a good turkey dinner. However, it has definitely gone down hill. I couldn't decide between turkey croquettes and a turkey dinner, so got the croquettes for an appetizer and split the jumbo turkey dinner with my husband. Neither was a good choice. The croquettes were dry, not much taste, and almost no gravy. The jumbo turkey dinner had a pound of turkey and a ton of stuffing, a small dish of mashed potato and a small dish of squash, and an even smaller dish of cranberry sauce. Definitely not enough of the sides for two, even though it was advertised as a meal for two (they add $3 extra for the second plate). The turkey was sliced paper thin, was tough, dry and tasted old. Gravy was minimal. We did take home most of it and by adding our own gravy, made turkey sandwiches for a couple days.

Overall, we were very disappointed in Harts. I'm told, however, their Friday night buffet is good. Can't say first hand as there was no way we were going back.
The waitress was pleasant and efficient, the atmosphere turkey/country.

“Just OK.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

I used to come here with my family when I was a kid and stopped in with my husband today as we were driving through the area. He had the turkey meatloaf and enjoyed it but my turkey pot pie wasn't very good - I even picked off the biscuit top which is typically my favorite part because it was very dry and not flaky at all. The hostess and our waitress were both excellent, but the food quality was not up to par. I would also recommend that the manager do a walkthrough with a close eye for detail. Many ceiling tiles in the dining room and ladies restroom were broken and/or buckled and the heat/air vent above our table was way overdue for a cleaning. I so wanted to love my visit, but left very disappointed.

“Only a few miles from home, wanted comfort food, this did it!”

My mother and mother-in-law would have loved this place. Cracker Barrel must have modeled themselves after Harts.

“Thanksgiving dinner every day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Hart's does turkey like Mom's Thanksgiving dinners with all the fixings. They have a varied menu with lots of non-turkey choices as well. Their turkey soup is fantastic, and they do turkey meatloaf, turkey livers, turkey croquets, turkey legs, turkey chili, and more. The reason I deducted one star in the rating is the interior is looking a little shop worn and tired, but the food itself hasn't suffered. It's comfort food at its best. I never leave without buying a quart of turkey soup for home.
