I have been coming to this place for 35 years. I have been to the original location and the location where they moved in 1999. There is no menu. They simply sell Fried chicken dinners. They start with peaches , apple rings , Bread and butter pickles and cottage cheese. They then bring out biscuits, fried chicken, coleslaw, mashed potatoes,... More

We loved it! The only decision you make is what to drink because they serve fried chicken and that's it.

Visited the Brookville Hotel based on a recommendation from a friend. It is somewhat visible from the interstate but it is set back over the crest of the hill from the access road, just so you know. The "hotel" is a replica of a nearby original restaurant from the late 1800's with the dining areas in period style. Anyway, the... More

This is a very historic place and a definite must stop when you are in Abilene. It was originally a hotel with a dining room ( hotel closed in 1972 ) and now operates as a restaurant. Reservations are suggested as it gets very busy. There is NO MENU, it is Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Corn, Slaw, and Vanilla Ice... More

The place has wonderful, along with tragic history. The Abilene location is the new address of the historical Brookville Hotel that was located in Brookville, KS. Only part of the old Brookville Hotel remains in a remodeled building. There is a little bit of a wait to be seated to eat, depending upon the day of the week you visit.... More

This is an old fashioned fried chicken restaurant. They only serve the one menu at one price. It was a huge and delicious meal, straight out of the mid west kitchens. None of us usually eat fried food so this was a real treat for us. There was enough chicken left that we snacked on it for dinner later. Great... More

There isn't much in Abilene, Kansas but one thing you must do for dinner is visit the Brookville Hotel. They serve fried chicken and all the sides family style every evening. Since there is no menu, the food comes about 3 minutes after you sit down. The food is excellent. The service is great. Our server was Chloe and she... More

As we walked in, they offered to take us to a table. The waitress took our drink orders. Then, food started arriving: biscuits, strawberry jam, cottage cheese, pickles, etc. Then the "chicken for two" arrived with mashed potatoes, gravy, and creamed corn. There is no ordering! I'm sure they minimize costs with the simplicity. Everything was very good, especially the... More

We saw the writeup for this place but noticed that it said closed on Sunday. ...thinking that would be unusual we asked a couple of locals.. The hours listed on tripadvisor are incorrect. The chicken dinner was wonderful and we all ate well past being satisfied. I believe it's called stuffed! The owner came over to talk with us and... More
