HISTORIC LANTZ HOUSE INN CLOSES AFTER 20 YEARS Centerville's Historic Lantz House Inn has closed its doors after 20 years of Hoosier hospitality. The owner, who meticulously brought the pre-Civil War residence and lodge back to life, has moved onto another chapter in her life helping and serving people. Those who stayed at Lantz House were offered spectacular surroundings and much care and comfort. The historic inn is available for sale and perhaps another dedicated owner will come along to serve the people of Eastern Indiana, Western Ohio and travelers along the Old National Road, U.S. 40.

I met a friend for lunch here today. I had the Pork Salad, which was a standard salad which was topped with pulled pork. It was quite good and the vinegrette dressing was tasty. My friend had the Mediterranean Pizza. We ended up sharing our meals so I can also vouch for that being good too. Maybe best of all was the coffee. They serve Douwe Egberts coffee. I'd never had that type of coffee before, but it's particularly good. Plus, free refills. The atmosphere was nice and before we knew it, 2 hours had passed. You do have to order and pay at the counter. The food was served on styrofoam plates, and the coffee was served in a styrofoam cup. Given that my salad and my friend's pizza were $7.95 each, I would have preferred a real plate and the option of a mug for the coffee. Still, the service was friendly, the food was tasty, and it was fun to be able to walk around and browse at the candles and house-decoration things while sipping our coffee and chatting. It made for a nice afternoon, and I like having it as part of Centerville.
Great family run cafe with excellent sandwiches. My husband and I stop here every time we pass by this area. The little Italy sandwich is my favorite! Also the bread is baked fresh and is so soft!! If you are near by this is a must try!
So the food here was just fine. Actually, the pizzas were good. I would imagine, however, that the experience of eating in a candle shop is rather like trying to eat while your house is being fumigated for roaches. Also the dude running the cafe was super nosy. As in watching us like it was detention or something. Oh, and you have to pay for water. $.25, but still.

This restaurant has changed hands in the last year, apparently, as per our server. We were meandering down SR 40 during the annual garage sale and were starving. This place looked quaint so we tried it out. The ambiance is sports bar meets antique store. The bar was originally at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and is amazing to see. The service was fast, friendly and attentive. My husband had the footlong chili dog which he loved. I thought it was a bit sweet but the dog was grilled perfectly. I had a buffalo chicken wrap and it was absolutely delicious. A bit of heat but not overpowering. The chicken was grilled spot on. Their fries are beer battered steak fries. I wasn't sure about that because I'm pretty old school when it comes to french fries. I ate all of mine and part of my husband's. I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Great food.
Where to start. I literally made my yelp account to post this review, the food was that bad. Poor quality meat, low end produce, and worse cooking produced a horrible hamburger not fit for human consumption. My daughter got a foot long coney of the same quality. She left it about 75% uneaten, she did however eat the entire coney she got from dairy Queen 15 minutes later. My 2 year Olds chicken nuggets were hard as rocks and the fries all around were horrible. Add 15 minutes to get our drink orders and 20 minutes after that to have our order taken and they assured we would not be back. The server asked how everything tasted, I informed her it was not good, she said well let me know if there is anything I can do. $55.00 later for two 13 year olds, a 2 year old and 2 adults and we are gone never to return. I know this place is new, but wow... bad bad bad. Save yourself the headache or belly ache in this case and just drive to burger king, you'll have a better dinner.
Beautiful slice of Americana! I was so happy we got off the highway and found this gem! Stuffed Mushrooms! Mac n cheese! bLT with fried green tomatoes! Yum yum yummy!

What is happening at this place? I haven't been to this Stuckey's since I was 10 or 12 but they have Godfather's Pizza now and I wanted to go. I haven't had that kind of pizza since I left Florida, as it was in most Hess station convenience stores. I've been to a few Stuckey's stores during a trip or two. They're always overpriced and conditions are inconsistent. The previous reviews would tell me that this place was a dump. All I really remember is the tiny Stuckey's store before they added Dairy Queen. They have a decent multiple pump gas station outside with some expensive gasoline--it's probably more than 20 cents higher than other stations in the area. It's good inside, as far as the building and tables go. They have typical convenience store and Stuckey's merchandise and a full-sized Dairy Queen counter, along with what looks like a portable Godfather's Pizza counter, and many tables and booths. So, I'm standing there looking at the pizza menu. There was a woman to the side of the counter, but she said nothing and walked behind the cash registers for the convenience store. A high school-aged girl is rapidly moving back and forth around the place, but no one seems to be stationed at the pizza counter. Eventually, the high school girl returns and takes my order for a mini Classic Combo. She said it's going to be 20 minutes, which seems a longer time for their pizza than I remember. She doesn't take payment. While I was waiting, I sat at one of tables with an overhead vent and had to move to another table because it was really chilly. While sitting there, I noticed that no one seems to be working much. The person at the DQ counter is hanging on the cash register and there are a few people in the back talking and another is on break eating. A few people order DQ food but the employees don't seem enthusiastic or friendly. After a while, I go to get a drink out of the case and my pizza is ready also. Sitting down again, I'm at a different table with a vent overhead. The pizza is hot and the olive slice that was on top looks really crispy. Surprisingly, the pizza is what I expect from Godfather's--good. $4.99 for a mini is a little high, as Cassano's sells a thin crust 6 inch deluxe for $2.99, but Cassano's is quite a drive. $1.99 for a 1 litre Mountain Dew isn't totally unreasonable, either. As people are leaving, the person at the DQ counter is spinning a quarter. I'd think he'd be wiping the tables, but nooooooo. I believe I saw 8 employees and there have to be more to take care of the pizza making and baking. They should have the place looking amazing and travellers feeling great to be there. Instead, they've taken an updated place with two kinds of food and turned it into a place you probably wouldn't remember. They really need to get their act together. Update: the situation is worse with each visit. The place is more dirty now. Apparently, they replaced everything but the sticky, icky high chairs and booster seats. A couple of flies were trying to keep me occupied. They put out a typical Godfather's to-go unit for mini pizza. Unfortunately, the pizza had soaked through the bottom of the cardboard box and was extra dark on top, probably to compensate for whatever liquid is inside the pizza. I suspect they're trying to stretch the ingredients, but they've given me a reason to stop eating here.
Beware the Siren song of the DQ sign, weary traveler!!! In reality, this place transcends 1-star status. Its rating is more appropriately described as "hell on earth." I chanced upon this gas station/restaurant while on an epic 13-hour drive. My gas needle was on E, I was in need of food and maybe a quart of oil and some window washing fluid. I saw the sign from the highway and decided to give it a shot. The parking lot and fueling area was pockmarked with all kinds of potholes. The gas price, which wasn't advertised on a big sign facing the highway, turned out to be higher than any of the gas stations that I had passed. I had to pay though, because my gas was so low. After fueling up, I went inside to get stuff and use the washroom. The washroom looked like it was torn from the set of "Midnight Express." Totally filthy and with extremely vulgar graffiti all over the walls. It wasn't even clever, just stupid, misspelled and dirty. Leaving the washroom, I went into the store area and surprise! No oil, no window washing fluid. Great gas station, right? They were selling a bunch of "Amish" trinkets that were apparently made by the sect of Amish who reside in China. The restaurant portion of this joint looked just as dirty and disorganized as the rest of the place, so instead of getting some food, I turned quickly and got the hell out of dodge. This place was so dismal and depressing that it was actually a physical relief to leave it in my rear view mirror.
First of all, this is not the Stuckey's that I remember as a kid. This location has a restaurant attached to it, but it's a Dairy Queen, not a Stuckey's restaurant. The Dairy Queen itself is beyond pitiful. Hubster ordered an "Iron-Grilled Turkey Sandwich", it was more like the "Microwaved Turkey Sandwich" - first of all, no "grill marks" on the sandwich and second of all, we could hear the "DING" of the microwave when standing at the counter waiting for the order. The taste and texture left a lot to be desired, no surprise there. The ice cream was terrible! I mean, how could you screw up ice cream?! Is this really DQ ice cream? Me thinks not! Sprinkles must have been stale, they did not taste right...in the words of my 9 year old daughter "THE SPRINKLES WERE HORRIBLE", and this is a girl who almost never complains about ice cream OR sprinkles for that matter. She got a spoon and scraped off the sprinkles into a napkin to make the ice cream somewhat palatable. As per Mike K, the lot was horrendous, potholes galore. To their credit, though, they had a sign stating they were under construction. So I'm assuming that will be rectified. If you're coming to get gas, fine, but skip the Dairy Queen. You'll be glad you did.
