I've been eating lunch here for the last year since one of my projects is in Greers Ferry. Unfortunately it is seasonal restaurant (closed for a month or two in winter), and only open on Thurs-Sun. I made a thursday/friday ritual of eating here whenever in Greers Ferry. They always have 5 or so daily specials that are always great,... More

Our first visit to Janssen's will not be our last! Enjoyed brunch buffet with all delicious items! Carved turkey with real mashed potatoes and gravy- yum! Also fried apples and the most delicious carrot muffin I could ever imagine! The meal was topped off by fresh coffee. Couldn't really ask for more. And yes, friendly, helpful service!!!

We had diner there on Friday, October 21, 2016. The food was fantastic, and the service was just as good. We had a NY strip and a tenderloin, both were cooked to perfection. The wait staff were right there if we needed re-fills, or anything else.

We live in the area and always visit. The Tuna, Prime Rib & Sunday Brunch are all worth visiting & partaking. The service is friendly & quick. The only downside is Friday/Saturday night between 6:00 - 8:30pm especially in the summer. Be prepared to wait, but they will take your cell number & text you when your table is ready... More

My wife and I have eaten here before, it's on our way back home from church. In the past service has been OK and food has been from very good to below average. Today we stopped by earlier than usual, 2:45 pm. I had had the 1/2 Southern Fried Chicken before and it is too much for me to eat... More

Most recommended place for dinner by the locals. Get there early as it gets packed. Only open Thursday thru Sunday. Desserts are to die for! Seven layer carrot and chocolate cake, cheesecake and pies. Save room for them.

This restaurant is lake side, you can even arrive by boat and use their dock. Serves lunch and dinner, limited days and seasonal, so check their hours. They are known for their Sunday Brunch that is served for 9-2. Check for times when they switch from breakfast to lunch items. Try the fried chicken.

We went there for lunch and it was OK. We were a little disappointed because we have been there a lot in the past and today was not the usual. The food was not hot and very slim portions. The atmosphere use to be very friendly but when I spoke to the owner she looked at me like she didn't... More

We went to Jannsen's on Sunday the 28th for brunch. It was incredible. Everything you could want was there. If you wanted custom eggs they had an egg chef fixing whatever you ordered. All the meats and pastries, waffles and some of the best soft scrambled eggs ever. You will not be let down. The staff were right on top... More

Get here early we arrived at 5-30 on Saturday evening and still had a 45 minute wait. We eventually got a table and ordered a couple of glasses of wine,if you order a bottle and don't finish it they will brown bag it for you to take home. We ordered the Ribeye and fried chicken and both were excellent,really wished... More
