Stopped to eat a hearty breakfast with the wildlife. Great sausage from the local butcher, eggs, hash browns and toast plus great atmosphere

We love to visit Ole's, and finally got back. The special was chicken fried steak. I LOVED it. It was a true, classic, breaded chicken fried steak, not the battered kind, more like a schnitzel! Service was friendly and efficient. What a nice detour!

Easy to get to from I-80, small town so you can't miss it. Service is fast and friendly and they have a full menu lunch to supper. Take a couple of minutes to look around at all the wall displays or a real polar bear....More

I believe that this is the best ribeye i have EVER had, and at an affordable price! Perfectly cooked. Sides weren't anything to get excited about, but who cares if you have some great meat like this!

Enjoyed a very good fried chicken dinner with homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. Thousand Island for the salad also tasted homemade. Large hand patted hamburgers- a little overdone, but very flavorful. New bathrooms that were sorely needed! Thank you for that! Taxidermied animals abound. Fascinating...More

We pulled off I-80 and stumbled into Ole's for lunch. Today's special (roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans was delicious. The hostess was very friendly despite there being quite a crowd. Seems to be popular with locals as well as travelers.

You can probably call and get a gift certificate. As to how much the breakfast buffet is, are you serious? You probably would be embarrassed at it's price if you tried to pay with a visa card. Cost is next to nothing for... More
