Only 1 waitress, so water never got refilled. No cash register, unusual. Breakfast was alright, just a little high for small town Iowa. Biggest mistake-I got a RUSTY fork! Utensils had been wrapped wet and the fork actually rusted! Totally unacceptable! Not sure if I will return.

Easy aces off of US 30 and 12th street. Ample parking. Real home cooked meals from a family that has been in the food business for 60 years or more. Try the pies and you wont be disappointed, always a good selection to choose from. .

The food at family table is good, the hot beef and rhubarb pie are my favorite. The staff is always friendly and the prices are reasonable .

I have realistic expectations. This isn't a high-end restaurant. It's not fast food. If you are expecting either Filet mignon or service in 30 seconds you came to the wrong place. They fulfill that niche area where you want to eat off a real plate, but not break your budget. Breakfast items were served all-day, and had a wide selection,... More

If I remember right, that's the actual name of one of their menu selections. Sausage, bacon, (ham?), eggs, hash browns and toast. Nothing screams farm country better than that. An order of blueberry pancakes fills the entire plate. Everything we were served for breakfast was delicious! It was fun to join our family at this restaurant and hear the waitress... More

Should only stick to breakfast as its hard to mess up eggs and bacon. I came in for lunch and had onion rings and a mushroom beef burger. The onion rings were swimming in grease and the texas toast that was the bread for the burger was saturated with butter. By the time I got home I was sick to... More
