Good food and friendly service are found at Coney Mckanes. Make sure you save room for the freshly baked dessert or enjoy a cinnamon roll. The homemade chips are a great choice to go along with your sandwich or as an appetizer.

This is a great downtown restaurant. It has good food and great pies. They also have good peanut brittle when it gets cold in the fall.

Our family (2 adults, 10 year-old, 3 year-old) went in for an early dinner. The place was next to empty when we got there, but they chose to seat us in the balcony. This made for lots of fun every time the 3 year-old had to use the restroom...which was located on the main floor in the gaming area where... More

This restaurant greets you by clapping when you walk through the door! All the food is freshly made and their homemade chips are awesome. They have items you can get gluten free and dairy free. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Everything I have ordered comes as ordered and promptly.

I've visited here for three years and always had wonderful service and friendly staff. However in the past six months I've noted a lack of response during lunch hours when you enter, people piling up at the door. No one really knows as a customer what to do and even if the staff sees you they don't acknowledge you. I... More

The wait was reasonable and the food was delicious. Soups are always great as is the coffee and desert.

Had their version of a horse shoe called the stiletto. Decent food in a cozy atmosphere with good service. It does all three meals. It's located in downtown Decatur near several other dining establishment and it's as good as any other with the exception of Pacos Sol Bistro whose food I personally prefer. YMMV.

Thank Gary S
