I doubt I'll return. The interior and decor were run down and in need of a face lift. It also felt dirty. The food was mediocre at best. The server was very friendly and attentive which was the only plus. However, some of the staff and maybe a owner or manager were having a loud side conversation. The problem: the... More

Stopped here on our way to Chicago and enjoyed the smothered chopped sirloin with rice and a salad. The server was friendly, attentive, and talkative. Finished with a slice of their homemade Bavarian chocolate cream pie which was very nice. Prices (fed two people for $18) and portion sizes were reasonable. Try it out and you'll be glad you did!

Had lunch recently at The Flame. I'm not a big fan as I think the food is very mediocre at best but a couple of my co-workers like to eat there because you can get breakfast all day. I ordered the hamburger horseshoe. It came with a cup of soup. The two choices for the day were cabbage or potato.... More

I am a resident of Metamora and used to eat at the Flame weekly. However recently I have been served cold tasteless food. Maybe it is because the owner has not been around lately. Last time we were with a group of 11 and numerous ordering mistakes were made by the servers and the kitchen. I do not plan to... More

Called in after Thanksgiving for a snack lunch and though not many people present it was not an indicator of a poor business. In fact we were welcomed and immediately we were seated we were supplied with a glass of iced water and a choice of two menus for breakfast and lunch. Food served promptly and was excellent in presentation... More

We have been coming to The Flame for years with our group and Tony has bent over backwards being helpful to us. Keisha the waitress is beyond great in always being able to handle a large group with a friendly attitude. The food is pretty good with some things being better than others. I usually get either fried chicken or... More

Good breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Not the best very enjoyable. You can't go wrong there. They have a list of daily specials everyday and every meal time. Enjoy!

Tony, the owner will meet you at the door and welcome you! If he is in the right mood, he might give you a dessert for free! Food is very good...not fancy but he loves to sauce it up and you always get a vegetable along with your meal! Desserts are excellent...good place to go when you don't want to... More

This restaurant will never show up in a Michelin Guide. But it's the kind of place where you can't go wrong. The ambiance is small-town friendly, the owner Tony makes you feel like you've been his friend forever, the menu is pretty extensive, this is not "haute cuisine" but the food is good and prepared well. If you're in a... More
