Very friendly diner with large entrees. Loved the fried shrimp and hubby had a salad. Both good. Nothing outstanding to speak of, just comfort food at reasonable price.

As you walk in you are reminded of an old american diner. Menu has a very large variety of food. Service is very friendly. I was with a large group and they forgot about one meal and that person received their meal as everyone else...More

We ate at Kristy's Family Restaurant for dinner and liked it so much we came back for lunch! The restaurant serves a good variety of American food, along with senior and children's options. Our grandson especially enjoyed the spaghetti, telling the manager it was "delicious."

Two of us ate dinner here. Good prices & good service. Food was okay, but nothing great. Good-sized fresh salads with entrees. Large portions. So good value.
