This is a cafeteria style restaurant. They have daily specials such as fish or roast beef. The desserts are amazing.

We had walked the Big Four Bridge from Louisville with another couple. It was lunch time and we found Ann's while walking around downtown Jeffersonville, IN. Locals were making their way there and it had been recommended by several merchants in the area that we had asked for advice. I enjoyed the fried fish special. The servings were generous, the...

This is a place to have a cafeteria style home cooking meal. Many options including desserts. I have eaten here many times and never a bad meal. The staff is what I expected for a locally owned business.

I don't know but when we got inside, I felt like that the restaurant feels dirty. The place sure needs a major renovation. The food was acceptable though. I love the cucumber salad. But, do we plan to go back there? Prolly not.

Best fried chicken in Jeff. They have great vegetables. My favorites are mashed potatoes & gravy, breaded tomatoes, Lima beans and pinto beans. Corn bread is good too reasonable prices. My friend won't eat their because they don't wear gloves or wear hairnets but the food is worth it to me.

From the name, one might picture an elegant supper club, with a view of the moonlight dancing over the river. You would be wrong. You can't really see the Ohio River from here, and it's more of a working man's quick lunch cafeteria, located in the working part of town – the "by the river" part. Food is average to... More

This restaurant is cafeteria style service. Lots of good home cooking (read that as fried) though they do have some healthy options such as baked fish if you wish. The fried chicken and Manhattan are probably my favorite dishes. I've only been here for lunch and their prices are a bit high for lunch, Chicken with two sides and a... More
