The food & service were awesome! Had their prime rib & wife had the Henry's hamburger & they were perfect! Parking lot is a little misleading because small, looks packed but still room inside! Well worth the short drive from Omaha! 👍🏻😎

Genuine small town diner feel with a fairly extensive, but not expensive menu. The menu includes steaks, prime rib, Mexican, normal diner items as well as breakfast too. Come as you are, this place serves farmers, working people, city folks out for dinner and anybody else that stops by. Food quality is generally very good, portions are large,service is friendly...

We went here for breaksfast and we were not disappointed. The eggs were very good. Nothing fancy here but that was what we liked. Very relaxed and felt like a friendly small town diner.

We were at a winery in town (with not very good wine, it should've been our clue) and the owner raved about this place. It is a cute little midwest small town diner. We were there for a late lunch, early supper. The food was mediocre, the place was a bit dingy, and the service was quite slow.

On a long highway trip from one midwest town to the other, we searched up the closest food place on our GPS. Henry's Diner ("Nothin' Finer") popped up as about one mile off the interstate, so we rolled the dice. It was about 11am on a Sunday, and the local crowd was shuffling in. It was pretty busy, but we... More

Stopped in for family breakfast. Wait staff was very courteous and fast. Coffee on the spot. Grandson had pancakes. Wow. Big, fluffy and plenty for him to chow down on. My husband and I had eggs, hashbrowns, sausage and toast. All came out hot and spot on the order. Best breakfast in town.

Our thirty + mile drive to Crescent is well worth it. Waitresses are all very friendly and and personally I feel you can not beat the food. Prime rib and b-b-q rib are mouth watering. We always visit on Saturday nights. Unable to pick a date BELOW!
