We think management is resting on their past laurels. We won't return until place is cleaned up and spruced up and waitresses clean up their act. Waitresses: someone needs to supervise them so they wash their uniforms, stop eating in front of customers, stop gossiping...More

Very good home cooking. Expect to be over fed with with food you would make at home. Truly a family restaurant. We were recommended to Dairyland by a local merchant. I asked - Where would you eat dinner tonight? Their answer Dairlyland. They were right.

The Dairyland cafe is an awesome place for breakfast , lunch and dinner. The owner is great and will treat you like a member of the family. Come here for great food at a fair price, you won't leave hungry.

My wife and I have lived in this neighborhood for 7 years but had never eaten here. This restaurant is reminiscent of the restaurants my family ate at in the 50s and 60s. It has a large menu for breakfast , lunch and dinner. We...More

This is a home style kind of place. Think grandma's house for Sunday dinner. I frequent this place for breakfast about once a month. The prices are good and the portions are huge. The decor is hopelessly in need of a major facelift and I'd...More
