Lanny's is a great local place for breakfast, or any time great portions and good prices, wait staff does a great job. You get your food quick and good conversation, always a ton of locals here but they treat everyone like family.

This small but inviting resturant is a little on the worn side but don't let that fool you, the food and service are very good, soups pies and general fare are a nice value!

Wanted a simple meal with my stomach hurting that day, got a fresh hot cup of coffee, a bowl of soup(can't remember what it was not unfortunately) and some scrambled eggs and cheese. Everything came piping hot and the service was great. Def need to stop in for more of the coffee though!

Great little mom and pop restaurant, the service is really good and they are equally friendly to locals or weekenders. Great food and prices.

Food is OK. Some days are better so not sure if there is a better cook than another? But the service is fabulous and they really do make you feel at home.

The staff was very friendly and attentive. The dining room was very warm and appealing---they seem to have a Community Table---which I love any restaurant that has one. My husband and I got burgers, fries, and onion rings. I loved the fries, liked the onion rings, as I did the hamburgers. The hamburgers were not seasoned, but they do seem... More

This place has the best chicken parm. in our area. The service is always really good and they have lots of daily specials to choose from including perch. Lots of soups and sandwiches like hot turkey with gravy.

My husband had lunch at Lanny's Restaurant today. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and my husband ordered the steak sandwich. When we received our sandwiches there was not even a pickle on the plate. You would think that they could throw a handful of chips on the plate or even a pickle. The steak? was nasty, they used the... More
