Always Good Home cooked meals! There are 3 places inside Niemergs,A cafe,Diner and The Brass Rail lounge. The dining hall does NOT open until 4pm you will have to check with them about weekend brunches and such.

Excellent food and service. Courteous waitress and not a long wait time for Sunday after church. Food was hot and cooked to order. Have eaten here many times when we lived in the area. Would highly recommend.

This was, without question, the best resturant we ate at while traveling cross country from Cripple Creek, CO to East Glenville, NY. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. The prices were especially reasonable and the service was great.

We have eaten here several times in the past for dinner and it has always been terrific! However on Sunday Jan 8 we visited for breakfast and our food was ice cold and after telling the waitress she said she could put it in the microwave. We ordered breakfast and in addition to the food being cold the hash browns... More

Went here for a large family get together. It was a great choice. Superb service. Servers were very attentive without being overly so. The salad bar is one of the star attraction. It's extremely large with a lot of options, cold and hot choices. All the food is homemade and delious. Definitely a must try.

The food here is exactly what you would expect from a family style restaurant in a small town. However, the pies are famous in the area. The display case as you enter is so tempting. The restaurant is very popular with locals and even though Effingham is an Interstate town, if you are a traveller just passing through, be prepared... More

We have dined here several times when visiting friends who live nearby. They dine here almost weekly. Sunday breakfast buffet is awesome with tons of food and great variety. Wait staff is excellent and friendly. They have a separate bar and we have eaten there also for lunch and drinks. Prices are reasonable.

Family and I were staying overnight in Effingham, IL on New Years Eve. We always prefer local over chain. This was ranked .#2 at the time, not far from the hotel. Great Choice!! We knew we must have been in a good restaurant when we had a 25 minute wait and we had arrived at 5:00. It was also a... More

Good service. Clean restrooms. However food was mediocre at best. The giant waffles were actually average size. Now where near a Belgian. Gravy was gritty. Sausage and bacon small. Not sure how it's is ranked #2. Might be the dinner service. One in our party did have steak and eggs and it was cooked perfectly.

I've traveled through Effingham on a number of occasions and was told to check out Niemergs for some good eats. It turned out to be just that. Very simple yet good quality food. Portions were huge compared to the prices that they had. The pie selection was wonderful.
