Not bad; not good. Very mediocre food. Some veggies were from the can. Several open tables to choose where to sit. We made our choice due to several dirty tables. They were never bussed while we were there. The dirty tables outnumbered the clean ones. Prices were decent. Just filler food of no note.

This town really needs a great place to go for breakfast but this is not the place. Greasy eggs and hash browns taste like cardboard. Slow service. Been here twice and same awful experience both times. So disappointing. Should be a goldmine restaurant with decent food.

Always saw large crowds at this restaurant during dinner hours and decided to give it a try. Wow were we disappointed. Just a bad meat and three!! Not only that, it is basically like a cafeteria. You walk up to the counter to place your order and take your food back with you. This is obviously a place where people... More

Friendly servers, terrible service. Coffee was weak, orange juice was not good. Placed an order for egg whites and French Toast-50 minutes and several assurances later from our waitress still no food. The manager/owner-told us when we said we had waited 50 minutes, and when was our breakfast coming up-he said: "maybe in 3-4 more minutes as they had not... More

We love the Seneca Family Restaurant, especially for breakfast. We go there about 4-5 times a month and are never disappointed. Lunch is good too, but breakfast is our favorite there.

Had a fabulous breakfast. Waitress was friendly and timely. She did not hover, yet our beverages were always full. There must have been a pound of bacon in my omelette. It was huge!!!! Biscuits were warm and soft. The grits were disappointing (small dish on the side)😉. Look forward to returning next time we visit the lake.

Was in Seneca on business and went to dinner at this establishment last night. Ordered our food and the waitress brought our drinks immediately. We were a party of two and about 5 minutes after we were seated a party of three arrived. Waited for our food for over 40 minutes. While we were waiting, the party of three were... More
