70’s diner style restaurant with menu options I haven’t seen in years - like the hot Hamburg plate, if that gives you a picture. We opted for their burger special. A little over cooked but a great experience overall with friendly staff, a table by...the window to enjoy people watching on the Main Street of New Hamburg.More

This has been our go to restaurant for some time for breakfast, and generally enjoy our meal. Today was a different story--when we were placing our order and asked the waitress about toast options she only told us white or whole wheat (we had to...specifically ask about rye, which they did have), eggs weren't cooked as asked, brought our breakfast with regular breakfast sausage, not the garlic sausage (told us after she put the plates down that they ran out of the garlic sausage), reluctantly said she could switch it out for bacon, which we admittedly declined for fear our breakfast would come back cold. We both had one bite of the sausage and left the rest as we did not like it. After the food was delivered the waitress never checked back to see if all was good, and she could see when she cleared the table that the sausage was pretty much untouched. She did not ask why and no attempt was made to make it right or to compensate. Worst breakfast we have had from this restaurant, will have to think twice before returning, there are many other options available.More

Went here for lunch during Moparfest. Cost $30 for 2 wraps and when we paid she gave a $10 bill back... so no change for a tip... I hope she he learned a lesson to give smaller change if she wants to be tipped

We ordered two hot hamburger sandwiches . One with mashed potatoes & gravy & the other one with french fries & gravy. The vegetables were carrots. I started off with a bowl of the soup of the day & it was cabbage with rice soup.The...soup was just ok. Both the hot hamburger sandwiches were average at best. I found it to be a very small portion .There was one scoop of mashed potatoes. I had french fries with my hot hamburger and there was not many fries on my plate. Vegetables were average amount. Gravy was okay. The hamburger patty tasted like a homemade patty although very small and only one hamburger patty on the hot hamburger open-faced. I found the entire meal not very large portions were small. french fries were frozen french fries not home cut. The entire meal overall was average at best. Service was okay.More

Four of us were here on a holiday Monday recently. Glad we had a reservation! It's obviously a favorite with locals, and we were happy with the choice of menu items, quality of food and service. Very family-friendly, and OK for couples too. Recommended for...a reasonably priced dinner out.More

Having eaten in most of the restaurants in New Hamburg, I can let you know that this one is a gem. Ambience is comfortable, relaxed, friendly and down home country. Very pleasant for sure. Melissa our server looked after us in a very friendly and...happy way. She was attentive and cheerful and totally competent. The lunch menu was varied and offered something for everyone. The Chicken Noodle Soup of the day was superb, very tasty without being over salted. The French Fries were served piping hot and were a wonderful treat compared to some of the fast food establishments. They looked to be freshly cut as well. I enjoyed the roast turkey sandwich along with a side Caesar Salad. Both were expertly fashioned and delightful on the palate. The Draft Beer was pleasantly cold and fresh. We will definitely be back (and often).More
