Really 3 1/2 Stars. The waitress was very nice and the service was quick. The soups are homemade and yummy. The chicken is moist and crispy, although somewhat bland. Needs some more spices. Portions are large, and prices are quite reasonable. However, the gravy was...More

Their specialty is the fried chicken, but they have burgers, steaks, salads, a full menu. Chicken was a little dry on the day I visited. Overall a good mean, above average, but not quite up to very good. A nice quiet spot for a meal....More

If you have never been to Wishbone, you are missing out on the best meal. The fried chicken is great. And the baked potatos are always perfect. Never in over 45 years have we ever had a bad meal. And the owners are the best....More

Met a friend for dinner at the Wishbone for the first time ever. Kind of a throwback to a restaurant of past times or Midwestern feel. Good food, generous portions, prompt and friendly service. I can imagine it gets pretty busy on weekends but it's...More

Everything was eh. The chicken is fried. It's not brined, or juicy, or anything special. Mashed potatoes are instant. Chicken gravy is premade- unnaturally yellow-colored. Mac and cheese are velveeta shells and sauce. The cornbread stuffing was good -unsure what brand. You can get this...More
