Here is the good local restaurant for the locals. After a fine breakfast everyone in our group was "tempted" by the good selection on pies that had fresh and ready!

Nice little diner. Clean. Good food. I had blueberry French toast & waffles for $4 and the portion was generous and delicious. Definitely a nice spot for a quick breakfast.

On a recent trip to the Mayo Clinic my wife and I stopped and ate at the Family Table. We both enjoyed our meals. We had the pot roast and grilled tilapia. We enjoyed the homemade pies very much. The service was good and friendly....More

Nothing special, really. Typical breakfast fare. Service was good, but the place has no window coverings, so be prepared to be blinded by the sun if you sit on the east side. Homemade pies looked delicious. Prices seemed high ... just under $10 for two...More

Meet and potatoe kind of place. I ordered breakfast and wouldn't say I was the best I've ever had but I wouldn't call it bad either. Service is always good here too.

At Family Table, we’ve been serving up simply delicious comfort food for over three decades. Originally an A&W root beer stand as far back as the ‘50s, today the Family Table is a local landmark that was fully renovated in 2003. We’re a favorite here in Decorah, the kind of place you bring the family for a casual, feel-good meal. Dining with us feels like eating breakfast in grandma’s kitchen, except we serve it all day long: 6 AM to 8 PM, seven days a week! We also serve sandwiches, burgers, dinner entrees, and much more.
