Hubby wanted to go back for breakfast - and we got there early, 6 am! People were already filling in, so this place has it's own following for sure. It's very much hometown service and food. Portions were good sized with great taste. You were not hungry when you left! Service is relaxed and friendly.

I go here quite often with the kids. Whether it's for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it is ALWAYS good. A couple must tries if it's your first time... Their HUGE cinnamon sticky buns and their homemade rolls - all made fresh right there! If your mama made it, they probably have it and that includes a great Southern (I call... More

The food has changed over the years; but, I can always count on the same, delicious burger and fries with ranch dressing whenever I come back to SJ!

I have lived in St. Johns for many years, and the Wheel Inn is not at all the restaurant it used to be. Once upon a time it was a great part of St. Johns and added something to our small town atmosphere. You could drive by on any given day and the parking lot was full, because it offered... More

We met our family there and had lunch. Fast friendly service and the food was great. This place has been there for years and still maintains the business.

Stopped in while calling on customers in the area. It was recommended to me by a customer and not disappointed. Chicken salad croissant and pasta salad were homemade and excellent. Strawberry shortcake homemade and excellent as well. Friendly and helpful also. Will go again while in area.

Nothing has changed in this restaurant since it opened...... Everything is old, aged, out dated. It's just an old truck stop. We go there once in a blue moon for breakfast. If you don't hit the special hours... Your going to pay $$$. It cost over $30 for the three of us for eggs, toast, hashbrowns, sausage & coffee. But... More

My wife and I had dinner with another couple after attending an art show. A family type restaurant. Nothing fancy but the food was good, the quality and quantity was good and the service was good and pleasant. Will stop here again.

Stopped in for breakfast. I had never been here before so had no comparison to make. My breakfast was very good. It was hot and fresh. Good coffee and friendly service. The high point of the stop was the freshly baked frosted pumpkin cookies when we checked out! Just like eating cake.

The Wheel used to be the place to go. Great food, awesome grilled cinnamon rolls, incredible potatoes in every form, tasty hot beef sandwiches, a turkey dinner with yummy stuffing and they were famous for their house-made bleu cheese dressing. Unfortunately, under new ownership and along with the change in decor from a vibrant orange to a boring beige, came... More
