A comfortable drive to Abilene, Kansas will take you back to a simpler time and place. Things go just a little slower.... heck you are just over at the neighbor's and they are whipping up a Midwest Classic.... fried chicken dinner. Made to order. In other words, they do not dip the chicken into the fat, until you and your... More

Unique history worth a one-time visit. Family style fixed menu. Lots of food with cole slaw, cottage cheese, relishes, 1/2 fried chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, creamed corn, biscuits, and ice cream! Service was excellent. Good but not up to $17 pp price.

People that we spoke to all raved about how great the food was. In my opinion, the best part about this restaurant was the gift shop. That isn't really saying very much. The food is served family style which is nice, but the food is also mediocre in this writer's opinion, and quite a bit of a letdown.

We love Bookville Hotel but it is a little high on cost for what you get. Its not all you can eat fried chicken, it is all you can eat sides which are delicious, but they do load you down with enough chicken you will more than likely be taking some home. The wait staff is amazing as always and... More

Seriously? No menu? How can that be? It's like Sunday dinner after church at mom's house. Beautifully generous staff who don't make you clean your plate before dessert is served. A perfect pause along I 70 from The Colorado mountains back to Good ole KC.

The food was excellent and the portions very generous. It is a bit pricey, but on par with other family style restaurants that serve real food. I wish we were not so tired when we arrived, as the children were a bit cranky. The service was a bit less than stellar, as we waited for refills on our tea more... More

It is refreshing to eat at an old fashioned "pass me the potatoes" style restaurant. Great classic food, full meal, no menu necessary. Definitely worth a stop. It is a nice, well kept property with friendly employees.

No decisions to make when eating here. The menu is set. Walk in, sit down and feast on a chicken dinner that will knock your socks off. They've been doing it this way for years. Who am I to argue.
