When it turned out our planned lunch destination was closed on Monday, we ended up for the first time at Penny's Restaurant. I ordered the Senior Flounder Plate for $6.50. Hubby ordered the Tenderloin Sandwich Combo for $6.90 and iced tea ($1.75). My baked potato...More

The waitress was great, but I wish I had not taken a single bite of the food. Baked potatoes were literally room temperature - had to mash butter into it, because it couldn't melt. My "medium" ribeye was past even well done, and was about...More

Have eaten here lots of times but not much recently. Never busy & service is excellent. Do not order the salmon, it is dry & overcooked, maybe from frozen as it was somewhat stronger than my taste. Their chicken is marinated & always really good.

I will never go back. Food is okay but management/owners treated the staff like crap. Waitress spilled a little cup of salad dressing on the floor and one would have thought she committed murder. The older man in the kitchen screamed and cursed her. She...More

There is nothing to like about Penny's. I got a take out lasagna for my elderly father, who by know means is finicky. He could not eat it. I tasted it and also found it not edible. I wished I had returned it but I...More

You must eat here! It is Mom and Pop owned and "Penny" is cooking in the kitchen. The food was absolutely wonderful, tasty and affordable. We had the vegetable platter (3 vegetables, a roll and beverage for $5.99). The fried okra was to die for,...More

I've been a resident of Jamestown since 1971 and despite passing by Penny's Restaurant a million times, I've never stopped to eat there. Like most people, we get conditioned to eat at theme restaurants and fast food joints but tonight I gave Penny's the chance...More

Service is EXCELLENT. Was at Penny's Restaurant for a meeting of 20 people with each person ordering their own food. The staff, who was expecting this group, worked together to give us a pleasant experience. It is always nice when the staff acts like they...More

Not that I saw. They have a pretty basic menu of Greek and Italian style food. Old school. No mention of gluten that I saw, just yummy good food.
