We visited Dumplin's for lunch. Located near the campus of Murray State University, the restaurant is tucked in a small strip shopping area on 12th Street, not far from the downtown area. The menus contain a selection of sandwiches, soups, salads, coffee, beverages, and glorious desserts. During our visit at lunch, the dinning area was nicely packed, small tables in a cheery atmosphere. We ordered a variety of dishes: turkey swiss sandwich, a couple of trio salads, and desserts. The sandwich served on an incredible doughy bun was simple. The salads were tasty, plentiful, and with fresh ingredients. The desserts were outstanding. I ordered a chocolate chip cake with a superb icing. My friend selected a Leomonberry Cake, and it too was superb. A third member of our party picked a Lemon Icebox pie. No complaints on these confections. All accompanied by great coffee, freshly brewed. It is a lovely spot for lunch or dessert in a college town.

We stopped in just to taste the rolls which came highly recommended! The place was packed with a long line for a table so we went to the counter and asked for take out. We were unable to purchase the 12 roll package as listed. (We were told that they weren't available that day.) I asked to purchase 6 individual rolls and was told that it would need to be approved by the manager. They came back and said we could purchase only 3. We were then told that if we call ahead next time, they would have the 12 ready for us. However, the rolls were worth all the trouble! They were HUGE for the 99 cents we paid for each one. They gave us a small container of sweetened butter for each one as well. I would highly recommend visiting. Just make sure you leave enough time to sit down and enjoy the entire menu as available.

A bit pricey but the food & desserts are great. This is a nice, classy place for lunch. We've not had a meal (or cake/pie) there yet that disappointed.

Stopped by at the suggestion of a friend who was here 15 years ago. Selection was limited but everything was fresh and tasty. Start with a roll and honey butter. Chicken and dumplin soup was hearty and tasty. Soup comes with a side salad.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Would visit again.

My wife and I eat there nearly every week and have for many years. Their food is always good and varied and their service is the best in town. We love their waitresses, they know us by name and chat with us on every visit.We often bring friends to lunch with us.They cater our special events regularly. Their desserts are world class quality. It is one of the best restaurants we have ever visited over our many years. Their prices are very reasonable considering the high quality of the food and service.
