This is a great family restaurant that we found on Tripadvisor. The meals are large enough for 2 people (everyone that left had a leftover box) but more importantly the food was good. My double cheese burger weighed 2/3 lb.; I ate half. My wife's fried chicken was some of the best she's had, not greasy and very delish. The... More

Nothing to say good or bad. Slow service and place needs a good cleaning. The restaurant has a family style look to it but the menu seemed very limited to me. With a little tender loving care it could be a very nice place.

My husband and I had dinner meals here that were excellent. I had the Half chicken fried which came with a salad and onion rings. It was crisp, light, juicy, and cost less than $10. My husband had a double cheeseburger plate (2/3# of hamburg) with cole slaw and onion rings which was also delicious and about $10. We both... More

We stopped for brunch on a chilly Saturday morning. The large parking lot was full and we had less than a 10 minute wait for a table. Obviously this is popular local hangout. The large dining room was full but service was quick and our server, Nikki, was friendly & efficient. We ordered the breakfast special ($4.99) which is served... More

We have been to Uncle Lonny's a few times now. The fried walleye is by far our favorite. You can not beat the price for a generous serving of great fish with 2 very generous sides. The service has been very pleasant each time. We appreciate the Christian music they play in this no nonsense, nothing fancy restaurant. Highly recommend... More

Great home cooked food and terrific service. The fried chicken special was so good we bought extra to go and had it for lunch the next day.

Our hotel desk clerk sent us to Uncle Linny's. We had been on planes all day and it was close by. It would have been worth a much longer trip to enjoy this excellent homey restaurant. Fast unobtrusive service by a squad of folks that served up a nice "little supper". I had a packed Reuben sandwich with a side... More

Been there many times. Prompt service. Good food. Good value. There is also a 'dining card' available for return visits. Purchase nine meals and get the tenth free. Never had any problem with food. Good parking available. Friendly people serve you good portions of food. The desserts come from a bakery in Chicago.
