Stopped in here for a lunch with friends. The food was very good and our server was very attentive. Their menu is quite broad with a variety of food to choose from. The chicken is the specialty of the house. If you like down home cooking, give this nice restaurant a go. You'll like it.

Met a friend for dinner at the Wishbone for the first time ever. Kind of a throwback to a restaurant of past times or Midwestern feel. Good food, generous portions, prompt and friendly service. I can imagine it gets pretty busy on weekends but it's a fairly large building...
Don't expect tons of "healthy" choices...an older crowd comes here...

Everything was eh. The chicken is fried. It's not brined, or juicy, or anything special. Mashed potatoes are instant. Chicken gravy is premade- unnaturally yellow-colored. Mac and cheese are velveeta shells and sauce. The cornbread stuffing was good -unsure what brand.
You can get this at your local diner. Nothing to write home about at this place, except that it is well attended by seniors on Sundays.

Used to go here regularly with family but had been here in a few years. Hugh disappointment! Chicken was ok but certainly nothing wonderful. Mashed potatoes must have been instant and were so bland I didn't eat more than a few bites. Gravy and Texas toast was as good.

The middle aged host/cashier made tacky flirty comments that went out in the 70's. Not sure was he was thinking, but I thought it was just sleazy.

I came in craving the fried chicken and mashed potatoes I remembered and left still craving them. Big bummer!
