Stopped for breakfast on our way to craft fair in Harrisburg. We ordered the corn beef hash. It was bad spoiled. Just hoping we don't get sick. Poor service. Waitress never asked why we didn't eat it. Food was also cold.

If you ever plan to visit the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg TN. Do yourself a huge favour and stop here for Breakfast/Brunch. The service is great. The food is better. The portion sizes were so generous that my wife needed two plates for her breakfast. The bill was minuscule but the welcome was warm. I couldn't recommend it highly... More

My wife and I are from Parma, Ohio, 6 miles southwest of downtown Cleveland. We were in Shelbyville to visit my brother and sister-in-law. They suggested breakfast at the Midway Diner so we headed out. It was about a 10 minute drive. We got to the diner at 11 am and found out that breakfast ended at 11. We ask... More

This is a down home, friendly family operation serving good home cooking. My lunch today consisted of a great meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, cornbread and ice tea all for less than $10. Service is fast and very friendly. The intreior is decked out with Christmas decorations

When we finally got our syrup after several minutes, it had not been warmed up. Must have been cheap syrup as it had no flavor which didn't help the pancakes. Ordered chocolate milk. It was chocolate syrup... More

I do lunch regularly. Meat and two, with all the tea you can handle. Good folks, food is good. If you are in the area, definitely worth stopping in for a meal.
