They usually have good bloody Mary's. Been here a few times. It's not always consistent unfortunately . One time I wondered if the bartender forgot the vodka. Food is just okay.

Too bad the good ol days have passed.... just as you should pass by this place. We came here to try the famous Bloody Mary that we had heard so much about. Personally, it was one of the worst bloodies I've had. Sure, the presentation is pretty good if you can get past watching the bartender put his fingers all... More

We had the best bloody mary here... Quaint and fun. It is next to the laundrymat in town. Lots of fun antiques shops nearby.

Nice place for a meal but the food (Friday Night Fish Fry) was mediocre at best. We also ordered (twice) a couple of Brandy Manhattans and they had no clue how to make them, But I suspect the bottle beer should be a-ok. Nice owners but don't order Fish Fry or a Manhattan.

Owners Carol and Randy are nice folks. Their bacon cheeseburger is the best in the county, in my opinion. Their Blood Mary is awesome but not inexpensive.

In addition to having the BEST Bloody Mary in the trip-state region, the atmosphere is fun and funky. A toy train runs around the interior up by the ceiling. Old photos and memorabilia add to the fun. A life-size Elvis statue greets you providing a fun photo-op. The service is sometimes slow but not for lack of effort. The staff... More

Great place. I bet this place has not change much in the last several decades and glad that it has not. Great wings and old school Hamm's beer hard to beat. Thanks for keeping it real!

Tried to have lunch there but was greeted with the above caption. I have eaten here before, I had the club sandwich and found it to be a little pricey and then realized how big it was. It was like a 2 in 1.

I've been frequenting Good Ol' Days since the day it opened. It was popular then, and it has only gotten more popular. The food is always good, the staff is always friendly, and the atmosphere is very welcoming. You may have read some reviews that talk about slow service. Well, the service isn't slow because they don't work hard, it's... More
