I've eaten at Happy House for many years. When I first visited ten years ago I was wowed by their fresh soups and delicious chicken salads. Over the past few years, both the service and the food quality has gone down. The curried chicken salad will occasionally have pieces of bone or taste a bit old. They no longer offer... More

The Friday special with chicken salad on a croissant and one side and drink is my favorite. And I love the house tea!

Mediocre food and service. At first I thought I just ordered the wrong thing.......but how wrong can a sandwich be? .....more like a sadwich. The whole atmosphere was a little sad, tired.

We stopped here on a road trip to Indiana. I ordered a Kentucky Hot Brown and it was disgusting--wimpy, white sandwich bread, ham and turkey cold cuts, cold Cheez Whiz for the sauce. I sent it back as it was cold. It came back warm, but just as disgusting. Others in my party were equally disappointed with their choices. We... More

Great food and tea here. The only thing about this restaurant that I don't like is the hours of day that it's open. If your work then it's difficult to go to. Other than that, I would recommend.

I'm new to this area, but some friends took me to Happy House. A charming restaurant, great service, and the French dip was wonderful. Good service too. For dessert, the key lime pie was awesome. A friend is coming for a visit next month, this is a must on my list.

This is a review of the business, not the food. We were in Mayfield Kentucky and looking for a place for lunch. We decided to give the Happy House a try. There were several cars in the parking lot, so we parked and walked to the front door. We entered and was asked by one of the staff if we... More

Somewhat limited hours of operation. Lunch is a favorite time to go. Been in operation in this old stylish house for many years. Good salads, sandwiches and deli type entrees plus heavier fare also. A Mayfield Ky favorite for years. Clean and good service!

Thank Ronald C
