I need to get back to this place, but I love it. A total local gem with farmer flare. The decor in this place is amazing. The food was wonderful & the dessert to die for.

It was ok. That's it. Nice great, not bad, just ok. The service was fine. Suppose if you lived in the area it's the sort of place you could visit at. But definitely not a "destination".

We went for a late lunch and were seated very quickly. The menu was standard Midwestern fare, filling but overly fancy. We both had hamburgers and they were good. The interior design features a large amount metal signs of tractor companies and some other of ag-business related stores. There was also a tractor parked inside the resturant.

West 40 has local flavor written all over it, from the decor to the table settings and friendly service. I loved it as soon as I entered. It looked like the kind of place that serves home cooking and plenty of it. My mistake was ordering the fish basket instead of one of the specials. I let my hankering for... More

We arrived and waited at least 15 minutes before a waitress "took our table" after we had signaled several times. We waited another 15 minutes before our order was taken. Another 15 minutes before she came back to say the hot sauce for the wings had gone missing and she needed to revise our friend's order. Another 15-20 minutes passed... More

Very nice family restaurant. The service was very good. The food is also good. I would recommend this restaurant to friends looking for a nice dinner out with their kids. Not a super fancy menu, but good All-American fare. Not a "gold mine," but a rock solid restaurant.

We had a light dinner meal, French dip sandwich and a bowl of chili along with a soda pop. The food was well prepared and tasty. The service by Jean was excellant.

Only have been here for breakfast, but everything we have tired has been great! The staff is very friendly and accommodating! I would suggest this restaurant to anyone looking for some good "down home" "homecooked" breakfast!

Very likely the busiest restaurant in town. There's people here all the time eating food that I do not enjoy. I like tractors and I also like prime rib

Waited over an hour for our food. Food was only okay. Not worth the wait. Restaurant was not very clean. Ants in the bathroom. Service was lacking. I won't go back.
