We eat here about once a month. It always has good food and service. The prices are reasonable and it has a great salad bar. The Brass Rail bar has good drinks.

They have a great salad bar that comes with the meal in the dining room. The cafe is great for quick lunches or late night breakfast. Service is fast and friendly. The pie is delicious!

Stopped here 2 years ago and loved it. Back again and still loved it. Cannot understand the bad reviews. We never eat at the bar. Some reviews complain about this place having a lot of elderly. We would prefer to eat in a quiet restaurant with elderly instead of a noisy restaurant with a bunch of little kids running wild!... More

Old school family run restaurant with "real" food. Service is great and the coffee is always fresh. Large menu for lunch and dinner, breakfast served all day.

We always stop here to get homemade pies. The coconut is my favorite and 1 isn't enough. We buy three just in case we get hungry on the way home. This is a must stop. We stop here on our way to St.Louis.

Niemerg's is a great little place for being in this travel through city of Effingham, IL. This steakhouse had a great selection of fresh seafood, steaks, all American burgers and food. The desert showcase had all pies, cookies and delicious treats. I'm glad my family and I blindly picked this place to go because we would definitely recommend it and... More

The steak medallions were cooked perfectly medium rare. The salad, mostly of iceberg lettuce, was basic. The mashed potatoes, to my surprise, were fake! Husband had the chicken dinner and liked that very much too.

The food is always very good and the waitresses are the best! Even though it's an hour away from us my husband will make excuses to go to Effingham so we can go there to eat. We have been there at different times of the day and it's always an enjoyable time. If we are too full to have pie... More

Top quality food at amazingly low prices. We loved everything that we ate. Especially the pies. The coconut cream was relish. I had a steak that was tender and so good. Also very pleased that a huge salad bar was included. Our waitress, Grace, was so fun and helpful. She made the meal a perfect experience.

We discovered Niemerg's through TripAdvisor and it turned out to be a charm. Delicious food and fantastic service. The prices were absolutely unreal. Like time had gone back to 1977. A filet was wonderful and the baked potato perfect. Also the cod almandine was perfect. Everything includes an extensive salad bar and homemade bread. To top it all was fantastic... More
