Dined here for the 2nd time the other night. 1st visit I had the pasta with pot roast ragu and thought it was very good with enough to have for lunch the next day. On my 2nd visit I started with the Philly cheesesteak egg rolls which were very tasty. For my main course I went with the short rib... More

Started with the lasagna soup and s salad. Hubby had tarragon chicken milinese, I had the pot roast ragu. Enough to feed a village!

Visited this establishment on Saturday and was quite surprised. My son-in-law and I ordered the special soup which was loaded baked potato. The soup was very thick and topped with cheese and bacon bets. Although good I think it could've been spiced up just a little. Prices were extremely reasonable and considering we had four adults and two small children... More

I like The Little Food Inn. The food is good and seems fresh. The menu changes but they always keep a few of the more popular dishes on the menu. It is a BYOB. A reservation is recommended for weekends.

Trying to give you a complete review so here is my breakout. Summary: Really great food... almost perfect, they just need to work on their dessert. Atmosphere: Very very country, but the decor was well thought out and comfy. If you're sensitive to drafts, don't sit by the windows. Their HVAC blows straight down from the above vents. I asked...

Stopped here for dinner and I was not disappointed. I was warmly greeted and shown to me table. The service there was remarkable! I didn't feel as if I was in a restaurant but rather in Aunt Jane's house for Sunday dinner. The food was delicious. I had the Fried Chicken and Waffles and it was made with love. The... More

This restaurant is like a local, homey, small scale version of Cracker Barrel. Great old style ambiance, with small antiques in the lobby, Staff is friendly. The menu is extensive, with greater range, perhaps, than it should have. Our appetizers were delicious large portions: a chorizo nacho dish and fried zuchini strips. Besides the home style items like meatloaf and... More

Great place for Lunch or Dinner. Recently renovated and moved into an old Friendly's Restaurant and now they're even better than before. Great menu and resonable prices.

Food is well-prepared. The menu has something for everyone - home style of classics but with a little twist to make it even more enjoyable. The dining room is very country and inviting. Prices are reasonable and portions are large.

Leaving Rt 278 to find a restaurant for lunch, we happened upon this adorable small cafe. The parking lot was full so we figured this was a good sign. We were not disappointed. Food was fresh, served up quickly and the prices were very reasonable. From the hostess to the wait-staff, to the kitty decor, we enjoyed every minute.
