Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My mom and I were in town for an appointment and wanted a good breakfast when we were done. This place was it. They weren't busy, so service was very quick. The food was absolutely delicious. Down home cooking at its finest. Very reasonably priced,...too. Good portions, food was hot. We will definitely go back sometime for lunch.More

On my visits to the Midwest I often look for little gems like this. The service and food in these small towns (population about 14,000) can't be beat. I went for breakfast and enjoyed fast and kind service. I rated it cheap eats but only...because prices there were very reasonable, about half what I have paid in places like IHOP or Denny's. They kept my coffee refilled at just the right moments and always with a smile. You can see in the pictures there aren't many customers, mainly because I was there in July in the middle of the Covid scare. But I can't wait for my next visit to Canton to try their lunch or dinner.More

We ate here on 10/3/20 on the recommendation of staff at Heritage Grand motel. The food came out quickly, staff was very friendly. The portions were more than plentiful and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this place.

We happened to be passing through town about supper time and was looking for a place to grab a bite. My wife spotted the sign and the number of cars in the lot was an apparent positive indicator, so we wheeled right in. We grabbed...a small table and was immediately approached by a staff member armed with menus and ready to take our drink order. As we discussed aloud the listed specials, someone at a neighboring table mentioned that they were out of the one option, which was fine as it was nothing that either of us was interested in. Besides offering breakfast during open hours, the menu offered a wide variety of choices, so many in fact that an inner struggle occurred as a number of them were not ones that you see in too many places, like:: Salmon patties, liver & onions, walleye, Polish sausage & kraut, etc.. Yes - too many good sounding choices. And with a dinner, you get to choose 2 sides, along with a small side salad or soup, and a roll or garlic bread. My wife's soup, and my salad arrived in short order, and our meals in a very reasonable time after that. We were not disappointed. every staff member we encountered, about 3-4, were courteous,, cheerful, ,and even a little chatty if you struck up a conversation. The place was clean, open, and well-lit. When you combine all this with reasonable prices, it was a home-run all he way around. We will be traveling through Canton every once in a while, and now have a good place to stop for a meal.More

Excellent service, friendly staff, fast even when busy, perfect portions, well prepared and awesome pricing. Sure, the chicken could have been seasoned better, but the senior citizen clientele wouldn’t like that.

The food and service was excellent. The fried chicken was wonderful and the roast beef was very tender. We had a lady in a wheel chair and they assisted her thru the buffet line.

Because of a mix-up on our end, we ended up not having the reservation we thought we had. The owner was great and we were able to share the meeting room with another group. The area was big enough that we did not interfere with...the other group that did have a reserved meeting. Food is fantastic and the service was great. Definitely recommend this place.More

Food was very tasty and a great selection. The fish, think it was walleye, was especially good. Wish I could've stayed in Canton for another meal here.

We were in town and tried this place, yet again to find NOTHING has changed other then worse service and poorer quality food. When you order a horseshoe and the cheese arrives with large unmelted canned cheese clumps in it you know it's not going...to go well. Told the "waitress", really a preoccupied I'm in my phone girl, the food was cold she said "Sorry" and walked away. Burnt burger under the cheese. The wife ordered a salad that was basically the lettuce left over from 3 days and was wilted and bad. We explained to the waitress we weren't at all happy with our meals so she took them, rolled her eyes, and brought us a bill for the drinks. Last try in this place. Subway or the restaurant up the street are a much better option.More
