Nice little diner. Clean. Good food. I had blueberry French toast & waffles for $4 and the portion was generous and delicious. Definitely a nice spot for a quick breakfast.

Nothing special, really. Typical breakfast fare. Service was good, but the place has no window coverings, so be prepared to be blinded by the sun if you sit on the east side. Homemade pies looked delicious. Prices seemed high ... just under $10 for two eggs over easy, hashbrowns, toast and hot tea.

Meet and potatoe kind of place. I ordered breakfast and wouldn't say I was the best I've ever had but I wouldn't call it bad either. Service is always good here too.

We stopped for gas in Decorah and asked the clerk for a recommendation for breakfast. She recommended "Family Table". The parking area had lots of vehicles when we pulled in, which is always a good sign. The food was good, the price reasonable and the service fine. We had to wait a few minutes since the place was full. If... More

Had a nice family get together with the whole crew. There are 7 of us and it was easy to find a spot to fit us. Nice children's menu with choices and a great daily special. They also have a variety of pie and cake. Service is adequate. Restaurant is clean. The food is alright. Think inexpensive home cooking. Will... More
