The Chat-R-Box is one of our favorite places for breakfast on Sunday after church. While we miss Trina as a server, Reese does a very nice job in her role as server. The breakfasts are great especially either the Pancakes or French Toast with the "wicked"syrup. It is always nice when Kathy (owner) has the time to visit with guests.

This is a great weekend spot for us to catch either a Friday night Fish Fry or a weekend breakfast. It is cozy, friendly with good food and good prices - always nice and clean. The owner (Kathy) when she is around - visits with guests on a personal level at their table, but she is not afraid to get... More

I stopped her with a group of girls for breakfast on our way to spa day. Out of the 4 orders 1 was good, 1 was ok, and 2 were bad. Pancakes severely undercooked. Not sure we will be giving them another try.

Sorry that it took me so long to notice your post on Trip Advisor. Sure would like to make amends on your poor experience with us. No excuse for under cooked pancakes. Let me know when you are in Kellner again and I make it up to you. Thanks, Kathi More

We just finished a great breakfast at the Chat-R-Box in Kellner. Mary had the Dad's Pancakes (always her favorites) and I had the Kellner Muffin - both were great and reasonably priced. Trina does an excellent job as a server - efficient, polite, friendly courteous and always prompt with coffee refills. She always makes our visits a pleasure.

My mother, son and I decided to try the fish fry. I had shrimp and cod with twice baked potato. The potato was cold, it seemed as though it was microwaved, the outside was warm, but the inside was ice cold. The shrimp was boiled, that too was cool, not even close to being warm. The cod was actually the... More
