We love to go to DeForest Family Restaurant as a family. We can all get whatever we want - even breakfast for dinner!1 The prices are very reasonable and the staff is fantastic. It's like going to your grandma's for Sunday brunch. The only problem is choosing what to get since there are so many options. Love it!!

Good: cheese curds and wife's salmon. Terrible: my rice pilaf was insanely salty; the deep-fried smelt was old fish, overbreaded, and fried in oil that should have been changes months earlier; the canned peas were mush. Our server was happy and sincere but never offered to refill my beverage, which I drained in the first 5 minutes of the meal trying to rinse down the pilaf. The table next to ours had two men, one of whom sent back his steak. The manager first engaged in a debate about the merits of Choice cuts; the customer didn't knuckle under and sent the meat away. (The manager offered to bring another entree; the customer declined the offer.) The decor is nice; the place is clean; the menus are ratty but I see that as price stability since new menus always come with price hikes. But the pros are far outweighed by the cons. When in DeForest, WI eat elsewhere. We will.

I have eaten at the Family Restaurant on every trip to DeForest. The breakfasts were plentiful and the dinners were just like homemade comfort food, The waitresses were friendly and attentive.

We were passing through the area, and randomly chose this restaurant for lunch. We were impressed! The food, service, and value were excellent.

Extensive menu with regular food (nothing exotic). Family of 5, including one vegetarian. All ate well with nobody left hungry. Quite tasty at a very good price. Often small towns mean fast food only but this was a welcome surprise. Bill was very good value at $40. My recommendation for good home-town food at a great price with friendly staff.
