This is a local restaurant for me and it is great to have a place to count on in our community. I have had mixed results in the past but have discovered that it seems to have gotten better recently. First when the Owners have been there they are very engaged in the operations and always greet you with appreciation... More

This place was a wonderful and pleasant find! The food was good (not home made but home made style). The atmosphere was so relaxing and pleasant. The staff was the best!

As we were visiting from Australia we had been trying out all the more traditional diners! The Whiffletree was a great find and we really enjoyed the food and the ambience. Food servings were very generous, as well.

We stopped here after looking at trip advisor and it had a good rating. Nice place with decent prices. Only reason we gave this 2 rating was because the food was good and cheap. The service on the other hand must have been not with it that day for whatever reason. We walked in with another couple. We were the... More

What a great family restaurant in rural Ohio. Home cooking is wonderful. Home made meat loaf and red sauce dishes are among the menu items. Don't forget the deserts especially the pies.The salad bar is included with meals.

The atmosphere is very friendly, with great wait staff. We ended up eating breakfast here 3 days in a row! The pancakes are huge and very filing--our teenage bottomless pit couldn't finish the short stack (but ate home fries and ham also...) My boyfriend really liked the sausage and gravy biscuits--great flavor and not greasy. The homemade pie slice we... More

We ended up here after needing somewhere to have dinner our first night at Mohican State Lodge. There are very, very few options in the area, so we were happy to find this. Our waitress was very pleasant and the place itself was welcoming. The owners must have an affinity for John Wayne because there were dozens of photos of... More
