“Off Season - Average Everything”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Well... average everything except for beer price, a domestic bottle was 6 dollars. That would seem normal during the state fair, but not July. Everything else was priced appropriately. The food was average, service was good, atmosphere was pleasant. It's somewhere I would eat if we were nearby, but not worth going out of the way for, at least not during off-peak months.

“Love the home style cooking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

The chicken fried steak is the best part of the restaurant. I love it. The cobblers are great as well. It is a treat each time I get to visit this staple in Fair Park.

The staff is great and many of them have been there for years. I look forward to this during the fair and on other trips as well. I only wish it was open for dinner as well and I would be there much more often.

“Nice atmosphere but blah food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

The staff here was pleasant and welcoming, and the Inn itself is interesting, but the food was nothing special. My chicken salad sandwich, served on whole wheat, was generous but had absolutely no flavor. There were no condiments on the table, not even ketchup for the fries, and you had to go to the salad bar to get lettuce and tomato for your hamburger.

“Quick service and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

We were hungry after visiting the Children's Aquarium and decided to eat here as it was on the fair grounds. Happy to see an inexpensive menu. We were warmly greeted by the staff. Our hamburgers were delicious and we could add our own toppings. There was a large party so it was a bit loud, but it was fine as we had a 4-year-old with us.

“Double check”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

This looks decent from the outside, but we were wrong as soon as we went in. But it was lunch time and the kids were hungry. Food was average, lady at the counter wasn't welcoming, coffee was old, check your utensils, I have to ask them to replace mine. Also check your bill, we were charged 2x on the same order.
