I haven't been here in over a year and was I surprised. The quality of food, the price of the meals and affability of the long term employees that had made this a local hangout for decades is gone...and I mean gone. Changing hours of operation, rumors of closing and a general run down condition has definitely impacted this restaurant...and... More

We were there for breakfast very disappointing. No flavor to the food at all. Service was slow. Do not plan on going back

Came here with my BFF for a quick lunch. We split a Reuben sandwich with French fries and each had an iced tea. The order was already split for us on 2 plates with a huge amount of French fries each. Ice tea glasses were never allowed to go empty. Food was good, not great . The service was excellent.... More

I was visiting the Quicksilver Museum and needed some lunch. This place wasn't too far down the road and easy to spot if you are unfamiliar with the area. It is very homey with lots of window light and a friendly staff. I ordered a salad with chicken, fruit and nuts on it. It was huge with lots of cranberries... More

I have been a huge fan of the Holder families friendship and food for well over 30 years. Their food and service is consistently great, no matter which restaurant you go to you cannot go wrong!

This review is only for the Loco Moco on their menu. We haven't been to Country Inn for awhile, and they updated their menu, which included Loco Moco, a local plate found in the Hawaiian Islands. One of my favorites for breakfast when we go to Hawaii. They used rice pilaf (instead of steam rice) and smoked hamburger. Not your... More

Sam, the manager, will great you by name and welcome you every time he's working! He makes sure your food is served promptly the way you ordered it, and will gladly fix any problems that may happen immediately. Food is always fresh, hot, and tasty, with the coffee cup always refilled when needed! Great value for the food, as well!!!

Yesterday was my third visit in a period of about 6 months. I frequently go to breakfast with a group that consists of two adults and two kids...it's been virtually impossible to find a place that all of us like. Well, Country Inn Café fits the bill!! Everyone is happy! Yesterday I had one of the specials...a crab and asparagus... More

A friend & I met for a friendly morning out. We both ordered the same omelet, which comes with hashbrowns and 2 pancakes. For me this provides 4 meals for the price of one.

No frills wholesome food for your suburban road trip, or if you're in Town and don't fancy anything too complicated. Friendly staff and decent grub at a reasonable price.
