My husband and I usually go to Harner's once a week for breakfast. We went there this morning. This restaurant has been owned by the same family for many, many years. -The food is good. My husband is especially fond of their cinnamon-raisin bread, a slice of which he often gets with his breakfast and which is made fresh in... More

First time visiting and will definitely not be the last. Great food as we had lunch and then tried some bakery items (donuts, cookies). Highly recommend as it has a nice family feel with great service and food

Their bakery goods are amazing, known for their butter pecan coffee cake. If you haven't tried it, do so. You'll never forget it! In addition to the bakery, they also provide fantastic breakfast,...

Inviting atmosphere. Friendly staff. Even when our toddler spilled his drink. Enjoyed breakfast food. Sat at table by the window. The bakery treats are delicious!

What a little gem! Reminded us of a old school 'up north' WI restaurant. Food was great, service was fast and pleasant. Definitely will be back to try their breakfast menu, don't miss the bakery on your way out! Tons of cookies and pies!

This hidden gem has been there for many many years. It is a casual down home the of resturant with no frills. Just good food, extensive menu and reasonable prices. They have a pig roast every first Friday of the month I think. Traditional food, meatloaf, fried chicken roast beef and prime rib. All kinds of sandwiches soups and salads.... More

It's like a walk back in time, dining at Harners. Breads, baked treats are from their bakery. Breakfast is always good. Home-cooked style dinners & daily specials are good. In fair weather, there is a weekly pig roast. I've dined with my 3 little grandchildren. We enjoyed watching the river, birds, walkers & their dogs on the bike trail, out... More
