My wife and I were staying a nearby hotel for the evening on our way to MI and discovered this restaurant. Its a homey kind of place where it appears the locals go to eat dinner, drink coffee and spend time visiting with one another. The staff was friendly and the food was very good, if you get the fried... More

Visited on a Saturday, and almost every table filled. The morning we visited, they were short staffed a waitress, so the girls working the dining area were overloaded, but we weren't in a rush so it didn't bother us to wait a little longer for refills. The food was really good--hot and cooked fresh. We had lunch items so we... More

My husband and I are driving Route 66 Westbound. We came upon this place for brunch yesterday and loved it. The food is good, the service is good and the ambiance is so good----local people and we loved it! Definitely worth your visit. The pancakes looked amazing!

What should have been an enjoyable meal wasn't because I walked through the door at 815, (supposedly open till 9)and got not so friendly looks. I ordered right away and when the cook got the order she rolled her eyes and shook her head. I'm guessing she cleaned the fryer already. While i was eating they were rushing around to... More

Even though my arrival at Hen House was lunch time, I ordered breakfast pancakes and have to put it out there - they were amazing. Tasty, plentiful, not dry or overcooked with plenty of strawberries and sauce. Yum. Washed down with soda water and coffee that was refilled 2-3 times at the half way mark. This was recommended as a... More
