Wanted to take our grandkids to an old school cafeteria as we returned home from our Chicago trip. This certainly fit the bill. We all young and old seemed to enjoy the favorites like Waldorf salad, jello, fried chicken and chess pie. Everyone ate well....More

I hadn't eaten at MCL cafeteria in years but attended a meeting at the restaurant that included dinner. What a pleasant surprise! The staff was so friendly, and the food presented in a beautiful manner. There was a large selection and it was very hard...More

Always a good variety of selections, reasonable pricing and good quality food. I wish they did offer more ethnic type foods. Most items are basic meat and potato entrees.

WELL, large reunion for our small family, as 16 of us gathered here. As always, the MCL management & servers were most accommodating. The food was all the best. I wish we had more MCL's around the country. My fish was the best I've had...More

Always good food. Menu is different each day. They even carry your tray for you if you can not handle it.
