Don't order fish here. This is Nebraska. Beef is best, sometimes. Not the best steak in town. Breakfast is their best meal. The biscuits and gravy is very good. The buffet will fill anyone. Their pies and muffins are also very good.

We had breakfast. Pancakes okay, good bacon. Coffee was weak, and we were charged $.10 per artificial creamer. The restrooms were not clean. The server was friendly and attentive. We would not return

Just spending a Saturday afternoon checking out the backroads of Nebraska. Needed a mid-afternoon snack, and wanted something "made" not microwaved. Strolled into the Picket Fence Cafe. Quaint setting, immediate attention from our waitress, and a big glass case of homemade pies. We nailed it!...More
