A classic small town restaurant, in Hardin, hugging the Illinois River in Calhoun County. Wide selection, large servings, hearty dishes, all new building (after a recent fire). I had a large serving of open face roast beef with gravy, mashed potato and green beans for $6. Marinated cucumber salad was ample and very nice. Lots of thick roast beef slices,... More

The food is great, the service is good. Plenty of room. My favorite is Brisket salad, it is to die for. The remodel is great and you just get a feel of being relaxed while waiting for your food. Lots of taster samples. Love the Illinois River Dock!

We were there last Sunday, just for coffee and pies. Cannot comment on the meal but the pies (rhubarb and gooseberry) were great. We took a whole cherry pie home. The crust is perfect!

Went for lunch with family and was pleasantly surprised. I had the brisket dinner with fries and a salad. The meat is delicious, though I'd prefer sauce on the meat instead of on the side. That's just me, though. Hubby had the buffalo fritter sandwich and it was delicious. My aunt had the brisket philly sandwich, and though she's a... More

The wife and I had shrimp baskets. Very tasty and could have shared an order... Homemade pie was great also.

Took our boat to Hardin for a late lunch. One of the specials was Pork Steak which I ordered. Came with two sides for $8.99. Potato salad and baked beans were good. But pork steak wasn't very good. Tasted like it was just baked in the oven and then dipped into BBQ sauce. I had heard so many good things... More

Its hard to improve on the best Catfish Fritters this side of Heaven but this place exceeds expectations, a simple decor, nothing fancy, good food and friends, great service and copious amounts of the best southern style food in the area. Baked Sweet Potatoes are Incredible and Huge, Fritters in Buffalo or Catfish light, crispy and awesome. If you get... More

We always stop here on our way to see family north of Hannibal. The breakfast is the best, the cinnamon rolls, the omelets, and especially the biscuits and gravy are great. If you are in the area, definitely check it out.

We try to make time for a road trip to Mel's Riverdock once per season. It is worth the 2 hours drive to enjoy their delicious food. Beef brisket and smoked chops are among our favorites. Plan on needing a to go box as portions are generous. We always order various types of the delicious slices to go.

Our motorcycle group of 11 stopped here for lunch. They seated us right away and away from others, which is usually a good thing as we can get kind of loud sometimes. Nobody felt cramped... restaurant is very spacious. They also have an outside dining area. The food was amazing! Very good! Homestyle food and BBQ... A lot to choose... More
