I ate here twice while visiting family and friends and the food is very good with plenty of it. I had dinner the night I arrived and had the turkey Rueben. Plenty of turkey on the sandwich and just too much to eat. Lots of food for a great price. I also had breakfast the morning before I left and... More

Passing through Escanaba on Easter Sunday, not many restaurants were open so we pulled into The Family Inn restaurant-we both ordered the turkey dinner, just like Mom used to make! I don't think so! The turkey had to be a boneless turkey breast out of a box, the potatoes and dressing were swimming in gravy, the carrots were drenched in... More

My husband and I love family diners over "chain food" establishments. We enjoyed eating at the family Inn for breakfast before leaving to go back to Milwaukee. The waitress was a doll with her pretty red hair and warm welcoming smile. Our food was made to order and delicious. The restaurant itself was clean and comfortable. The prices were good... More

1st let me say the service was outstanding, we had a young blonde girl who impressed me through and through with her service, recommendations. and follow-up. The food was amazing, home made, good prices. The carmel cream cheese stuffed french toast was delicious along with the warm carrot cake. Have recommended this to many friends that travel through the area.... More

Went here with a hunting friend last Friday and I must say... one of the worst fish frys I've ever had. The fish was so greasy I had to wipe it off before I could attempt to eat it. I've eaten here many times but never for fish fry. Escanaba sports many fish frys no need to go here for... More

The food is always good, the restaurant is very clean, and the wait staff is always on point. This is the go to place for locals on a budget, I cannot say anything bad about it. It is not for me but I could be wrong

It is bigger inside then it looks from the outside. Had family style chicken dinners, goulash as specials the night we were there. Food was good and service as well. Typical family style restaurant.

Great location on the main road with plenty of parking. Not a greasy spoon but a great family eatery. Our choice was breakfast and the menu plentiful. Very clean and great service. We were pleased that Family Inn had been very helpful in substituting parts of our order to meet our health restrictions. When in the area we would not... More
