Stopped here for lunch! Thought we’d try something different and glad we did. Staff was friendly and the food was awesome and large portions. No wonder they’ve been around for 50 years. I’d say this is a must stop and we’ll be back.More

Love to stop here for lunch and have their deep fried chicken sandwich or their chicken salad. The staff here are super friendly and service is swift. My husband loves their breakfast (which he also orders for lunch) - especially the Belgian Waffles. So Good!!

So disappointed! Last time really enjoyed the food. This time I sat by the room where dirty & clean dishes go in and out. By the time the food came I was pretty grossed out. The place where the dirty dishes go before going it...More

Basic diner menu, but with Spam, makes sense with Hormel in town. Food was good and fast. Waitstaff friendly.

Kenny's Oak Grill is a restaurant. The bathrooms are clean and have the required items-soap, water and hand dryers. Not sure why you would expect a pool and spa. I think you are thinking of the wrong place.
