We have had the pleasure of eating at Janssen's a few times in the last two weeks while camping. Every time we went the food was great- the fried shrimp, the angus burger, the salad bar. I have tried several different kinds of cheesecake. They are all delicious!!!! If you really want a treat go up after church for Sunday... More

I went here with four family members based on the reviews presented on TripAdvisor. We all had something different. Two of my party had catfish that they declared light and delicious; another friend had the ahi tuna and said that " there is definitely a great chef in that kitchen." I had fried shrimp and the other member of my... More

While visiting the Fairfield Bay area from Texas...we learned about this restaurant from our dock master on a Fairfield Bay lake cruise. He highly recommended it and he was on point 100%. (Check their website or call as days/hrs. may vary during each season.) We visited around 530 on a Thursday evening in March. Shortly after arriving and choosing a... More

I've been eating lunch here for the last year since one of my projects is in Greers Ferry. Unfortunately it is seasonal restaurant (closed for a month or two in winter), and only open on Thurs-Sun. I made a thursday/friday ritual of eating here whenever in Greers Ferry. They always have 5 or so daily specials that are always great,... More

Our first visit to Janssen's will not be our last! Enjoyed brunch buffet with all delicious items! Carved turkey with real mashed potatoes and gravy- yum! Also fried apples and the most delicious carrot muffin I could ever imagine! The meal was topped off by fresh coffee. Couldn't really ask for more. And yes, friendly, helpful service!!!

We had diner there on Friday, October 21, 2016. The food was fantastic, and the service was just as good. We had a NY strip and a tenderloin, both were cooked to perfection. The wait staff were right there if we needed re-fills, or anything else.

We live in the area and always visit. The Tuna, Prime Rib & Sunday Brunch are all worth visiting & partaking. The service is friendly & quick. The only downside is Friday/Saturday night between 6:00 - 8:30pm especially in the summer. Be prepared to wait, but they will take your cell number & text you when your table is ready... More

My wife and I have eaten here before, it's on our way back home from church. In the past service has been OK and food has been from very good to below average. Today we stopped by earlier than usual, 2:45 pm. I had had the 1/2 Southern Fried Chicken before and it is too much for me to eat... More

Most recommended place for dinner by the locals. Get there early as it gets packed. Only open Thursday thru Sunday. Desserts are to die for! Seven layer carrot and chocolate cake, cheesecake and pies. Save room for them.
