Ate lunch here today at the peak of the lunchtime rush. Parking lot was parked solid. I had a short wait for a table. Server came and took my order reasonably quickly. Service was excellent considering how busy they were. Virtually every table was full and they were cleaning tables and turning them over as fast as they could. I... More

Had the chicken sandwich and crab bisque soup and left with a full belly and a smile in my face. Not a big menu selection but it had the basics. Great service too.

We regularly visit this restaurant for dinner and occasionally for lunch. Delicious homemade soups typically with four or five to choose from. No turkey lunchmeat here; only sliced turkey breast on the sandwiches along with homemade chicken and tuna salads. And to top off you meal, homemade ice cream, cakes and pies! Nice country atmosphere, very friendly staff and great... More

I had the pumpkin, apple, bacon soup - sooooo good! Their butter pecan ice cream is homemade, but a little too sweet. Our server, Jenna, was very capable and pleasant. The Christmas decorations were unique and fun (upside-down Christmas tree, cows, etc.). Very nice prices!!

A great place for an evening dessert. The ice cream is excellent and worth the small line to get it. Look forward to returning soon.

Stopped in a few times during our week in the area. Great for ice cream specialties !!! Sandwiches were average. The older staff members were not so friendly but that was made up by the super friendly younger staff on duty in the late afternoon and evening. Plenty of parking. Will definitely return.

We were taking a road trip and visited this for the first time. The space is large but not overly loud which was nice. There's plenty of space to spread out and you don't feel like you are jammed on top of other people. We were there at 2:00 p.m. on a Saturday and it was busy. All the young... More

We found The Udder Choice last year just by driving by... this year it was top of our list for lunch! Prices are super, food is yummy too! Service is a little slow at lunchtime but the place gets packed. I ate light so I could squeeze in a sundae for dessert! So good! Check it out!
