“Country cooking”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

I do not think Gracie's is on my diet, but I love their food. It is cooked and seasoned like grandma cooks. It is a meat and three restaurant. There are other things to order off the menu. Desserts are very fresh and tasty! Service is good!

“Home cooking style”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

A decent meal for a decent price. We ate lunch......I had the open face roast beef sandwich, mashed potatoes and a salad.........yummy. The roast beef was tender and delicious. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Look forward to another good meal at Gracie's when we are back in the area.

Passing through town, stopped here at the recommendation of the owner of the salvage shop and it was GREAT. Good prices, quality ingredients, very fast and friendly service.

“Satisfied Customer With a Critical Eye”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

In an attempt to vilify some of these recent comments and from a year or two years ago, I will write my own comment to update this listing. I have been to Gracie's numerous times recently which have all been pleasant experiences for me and my companion. The food is good although we have discovered some which should be left to the fast food industry. Understandably, labor cost are so high that using prepared products may seem like a viable alternative. However, at what cost to ones customer base. I feel there is a great opportunity for any restaurant to succeed by returning to the grass roots of serving 100% good, wholesome, prepared on site foods. Do this every day without exception and a path will be beaten to your door. Labor cost will not be so much an issue. Your customers will never write a scathing comment. And, you will be providing jobs to those in the community in need of honest work, rather than giving more work to the institutional foods providers. They probably have their hands full providing products to the institutions who are already serving the quick serve convenience foods, intended for feeding the masses. The service at Gracie's is adequate, albeit a bit unprofessional but that can add to the homespun atmosphere as long as it is presented in a sanitary and inviting manner. The employees there may need some guidance with encouraging customers to return, by making the customer feel appreciated. I don''t always get the sense that they all know which side their bread is buttered on. That is not such a big deal though, as if the food is good, abundant, burn your mouth hot or out of the refrigerator cold as intended. We can accept shortcomings of and inattentive employee. The atmosphere is warm, inviting and comfortable. That said, some of the springs in the booth seat are worn out allowing for sitting much too low for some of us old folks to be able to lift ourselves back to a prone position. The artwork is fabulous but somewhat obscured on the drab, dark blue walls, producing a dismal feeling. I feel the dining room could benefit by being brightened significantly and positively with a coat of light colored paint, perhaps the shade of those bricks at each window sill. In short, this establishment is deserving of anyone's good recommendation. Despite not living up to its full potential, it is a well managed, convenient and reasonably priced choice for your next meal out. I hope my positive comments will be helpful to those making a dining out decision. And, that they are viewed as constructive criticism for those most concerned and aware that change often keeps everything fresh and interesting.
