I've eaten at Happy House for many years. When I first visited ten years ago I was wowed by their fresh soups and delicious chicken salads. Over the past few years, both the service and the food quality has gone down. The curried chicken salad...More

The Friday special with chicken salad on a croissant and one side and drink is my favorite. And I love the house tea!

Great food and tea here. The only thing about this restaurant that I don't like is the hours of day that it's open. If your work then it's difficult to go to. Other than that, I would recommend.

Somewhat limited hours of operation. Lunch is a favorite time to go. Been in operation in this old stylish house for many years. Good salads, sandwiches and deli type entrees plus heavier fare also. A Mayfield Ky favorite for years. Clean and good service!

I don't think they take credit cards. They will take checks.
