Lanie’s Cafe was great! It was Tuesday July 20, and we were hoping it would be nice outside for our first visit. Nope, muggy, and we both agreed to eat in the bar area, cool and comfy.🤗 we got a table that serves four, even though we were just two🤗💕 Our waiter and bartender, Brandon(maybe Btendon) was sooooo nice, professional and c ... read more

We went to Lanie's early so we could get a table. Joshua was our server and was very patient. We told him we were not in a rush since this was our first outing since the Covid started. The food was excellent and the service even better. Not only was Jashua patient but has a sense of humor. This is so important when dealing with the p ... read more

Lanie’s has always been one of my favorite places. The food is always excellent and the portions are beyond generous. My go to tends to be the chicken, eggplant and roasted red pepper panini. I took my sandwiches to go and when I got home I noticed immediately that both sandwiches were literally half the size than usual…for the same ... read more

Big menu and serving sizes - the food was great, and next time I will save more room for the deep-fried ice cream. A lot more room. They have a beautiful patio as well as inside dining. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Lanie’s serves a wide variety of lunch and dinner choices: sandwiches and salads to great entrees. Their bruschetta is an amazing compilation of focaccia and toppings. The entrees are big sized - take home for all. We had a filet that was tender, tasty and some to go. We could exist on appetizers alone. Hope to be back.

We visited Lanie's before the COVID restrictions were eased. Their staff followed all the guidelines, it was most reassuring. All our late lunch / early dinner entrees were all well prepared and sizeable. At my request they held the croutons and added more blue cheese on my bruschetta steak spinach salad. It was very tasty and huge. ... read more

We visit Lanies frequently in the summer. Food is mediocre to excellent for the most part. They have a huge menu w/a few special dishes like the swordfish picatta. YUM!

Overall great experience. The pizzas are large, the salads are huge and the French onion soup was the perfect start. It is a little on the sweet side, but with the cheese it worked well. I would highly encourage for you to get all the dressings on the side for the salad as they can be a little heavy-handed with the pour. The croutons ... read more

First ever visit there after being in the area 18 years. Why did we wait so long? Wait for food was unusually long, but I suspect it was due to covid protocols and the fact they were slammed inside and out. Was worth the wait! The food was simply amazing and the menu was fantastic. Can't wait to go back and sample everything:) ... read more
