I have eaten at Gary's several times previously without problems. I was there recently and had a very bad food experience and themanager handled the situation poorly to say the least. I ordered a Hot Beef Sandwich w/mashed potatoes & gravy. I was almost doneeating when I hit something very hard with my fork. I thought it was a bone...but no it was the crust on one side of the bread. It was so hard I could not cut with a knife. Shortly thereafter, my boyfriend had the exact same problem. Told the waitress. She kept 'thunking' it with a knife because it made a noise like you were hitting something with a hammer. She told the manager. The waitress came back very embarrassed and said there was nothing they could do. Not that I expect a free meal, but at the very least the manager should have apologized and explained why the food had such a problem especially after soaking in gravy? Manager was glaringly absent when it came time to pay the bill. I am telling EVERYONE I know and hope they GO OUT OF BUSINESS SOON. WILL NOT BE BACK. The only plus was the nice waitress.

Solid, midwest standard cooking. Nothing fancy, but everything tasty.
Service is helpful and friendly.
Washrooms are downstairs & not as accesible as they should be.

Great food, good prices, and was remodeled recently. This is the restaurant that used be called "Freeman's - where hungry people gather". It is very good for those who like a standard menu - comfort food. One quirky thing about Gary's is that they sell these great cookies for carry out, only you cannot buy one to go with your post dinner coffee in the restaurant. You have to sneak the cookies back to your table. Gary - what's up with that?

Garys Restaurant (formerly known as Garfield's Cafe and Catering) is a supurb place! I love to eat at this restaurant, especially their Roast Au Jus Sandwich! This restaurant is so wonderful that we utilized their catering service for my wedding. They had excellent service, and everyone commented on the delicious food! We had sandwiches, potato salad, and a few other things that they catered. All were delicious! They were very prompt in delivering the food, and the food was still at an appropriate temperature for the type of food. I am very happy with their service!
