It was nice inside. A traditional cafeteria. The food was good. I got the carved ham with broccoli and sweet yams, sugar free jello, and some rolls. The broccoli was not cooked all the way but everything else was good.
Love the Medicare lounge!
Great selection of food!
Great accept I had no utensils in the bag when I was at the park ready to eat my turkey with mashed potatoes and carrots grrrrrrrrrrr
Met some out of town friends for dessert and stayed passed closing. Staff was still very nice and not pushy for us to leave.
Reasonable prices, good service, they have Good Salmon. I always enjoy the Spinach Salad, I Highly recommend, Especially when we take the whole family, numbering 8. Plenty of Seating and free refills.
The fresh green beans and salmon patties were great. The cafeteria setting allows us to Mill around at our table and visit with everybody it's great.
I always have a good experience at MCL!
Love this place. Food always good. Get things not usually on other restaurants menu. Service good. Refills quickly gotten. Pie special once a week
If your looking for a home cooked meal this is the place. Food is great. A little over priced though:/
Love the liver and onions
always a good meal. great for the whole family. great value!
Good food just way to much. Roasted turkey was excellent. Sorry no room for dessert but they look good too.
Our favorite for comfort food
The food is delicious! The workers are friendly and helpful. I love MCL!
Food was awesome. Rude girl serving the rolls with some serious RBF
I love this place! There's always room and the food is good.
Great food service for everyone , lunch in or carry out.
Food is ok. Overpriced.
Wished we still had one in Lima, Ohio. Such good homemade meals.
Disappointed in the chocolate cream pie. Much to bitter dark and the topping was way to thick and heavy
Great service and that traditional homemade taste.
Prices are high, but the customer service was good! The man that kept our drinks full loved entertaining our 1 year old
Easy dining experience with comfort food that remind me of Thanksgiving. Perfect for family dinner with grandma! Do you love your grandma? Bring her here! And call her more often, okay? She misses you.
Always a happy place to eat. Staff is always happy, professional and accomodating! Food is super good and always a clean place to enjoy!
Great food, and staff.
Staff very helpful. Need to ask about how salty/ spicy items are if on sodium or spice restrictions.
Delicious comfort food
Absolutely hated it
This is a throwback to the good old days when cafeteria style restaurants were plentiful. The fried chicken and mashed potatoes are pretty good.
I had only been once before and thought the food was terrible. It had been a long time so I decided to give it one more try and am so glad I did. I had the chopped steak, loaded mashed potatoes and lemon chess pie. It was all excellent! Nice employees too!
Great food for reasonable prices. There was no wait. We were in and out in no time. They also have take-out option
The variety of food choices is wonderful but just a little on the pricey side. They seem to attract an older clientele so there's not a lot of background noise to distract from table conversation.
For the price the meal is a tad weak. But The feeling of home made food is great.. So if your old if you are bored want food old people love take them here ... They will give you hugs and kisses
Typically a good variety of comfort food and prices are very reasonable. Unfortunately food is many times dried out or overcooked. There are much better options in the area.
Savannah the waitress was so nice and sweet to my 4 year old grandson and I. And the food was hot and delicious!
Cafeteria Food! The Manhattan Roast beef and mashed potatoes sandwich was tasty
Alittle expensive on some chpices but food is good. Enjoyed my Sunday morning. Cari was an awesome waitress.
Haven't been here for years! Great food! Great spot to celebrate my brother's birthday! Happy times!
I really like MCL, an old school restaurant serving up food similar to how I remember a lot of restaurants when I was young. Always a great selection of items to try. I like that I can get smaller plates when I don't want so much food. It can be a little pricey, but the food is good so I feel the value is there. It's not fast food or fast casual after all. Home style cooking. I miss the Westerville location, it was so close to home.
Great food and service
Free parking, comfort food, convenient location and courteous staff.
Great Place for Family Reunions
Love going there. Food is always great
Great food + very friendly people.
Reliable home cooking meals.
Stuffed chicken breast is the best
I’ve been going to MCL with my family for around 30 years. The best way I can describe it as a cafeteria with much better food than you’d find at any other cafeteria. The fried chicken is really great. You can grab some mash potatoes, gravy, green beans, a roll, and some great pumpkin pie for a great price. My family goes here regularly. It’s basically a way for us to get a good meal at a good price and sit down with each other uninterrupted in a way you usually only see at home. Many of the employees have worked there as long as I’ve been going there. They’re friendly and helpful. It’s always clean. I now take my daughter there - she’s about the age I was when I started going with my parents. MCL is a constant. Good food, good price, good place to take your family.
Good place to eat
It's a good place to go to when you don't want to run into any crowds of people are wait a long time for your food in to be set but the only thing is the food is okay it's just okay
The MCL Cafeteria has a wide variety for all people of all backgrounds with all different pallets! The food was absolutely delicious. Everything was fresh. I created a veggie plate this time and indulge with a piece of chocolate cake. My husband went for the Almond Aberdeen. He loves it! It's always very tidy and clean.
Home cooked food
Best Beef Manhattan anywhere. Friendly staff is always there.
Food was delicious. Service was great. Bathrooms very clean. This has been here several years & so clean, it looks new. Bonus:Friday was All-u-can-eat catfish!
Worst place ever. Way over priced. Could have gone to popeyes for way better chicken. It's a wonder that the seniors can afford to eat at this place
My husband and I rarely eat out due to limited retirement funds, but when I see one of my doctors once every month, our go to eatery is always MCL. They always have a good variety of foods to choose from in all the food groups for a balanced meal which is especially important because we're both diabetic. Their foods are not heavily salted or loaded with fats
This is your basic cafeteria style eatery with a nice selection of entrees and sides. The deserts are plentiful enough to fit all tastes and dietary concerns. The dining room attendant was very friendly and checked in on us regularly to bring drink refills. We felt this was a clean and well lighted restaurant
Good old cafeteria style restaurant. I love their cheesecake.
Very good all around.
Good prices and menu selections in a quiet, comfortable atmosphere.
Food was great. The price, not so much.
We don't often visit MCL in Avon. The experience was rewarding. Very busy, but the line went quickly. Delicious foods and tremendous variety.
Awesome food with excellent service.
We took mom for Mother's day. We went around 5:00. It wasn't crowded! Food was freshly made, staff was friendly, helpful ...and very accommodating. Our meals were delicious!
I remember going here as a kid and always loved it. I'm glad they put this MCL here cause it's close to home and I still love this place. The food there is amazing and the staff is friendly.
Always good food, same menu...$23 for 2 with desert. That's with the $6.99 value plate for 2. They give you plenty of food! Ask for a warm cinnamon roll...comea with the special.
Food was pretty good.
Always a place for home made meals
Always enjoy the food when we visit. Such nice people and lots of room and table space.
There were so many different food choices. Food was well priced. The food layout helped keep the line moving very quickly.
Always great. We like the daily specials. Good menu, good food, good prices.
A very nice place for you to go and get a good meal for a great price
Yum best liver & onions. Tasted just like Mom's
Wonderful fried chicken.
Everyone can pick want they want and the staff was very helpful.
Good food nice clean place friendly staf
We eat at this location weekly. The staff are friendly and helpful. They remember you, which is very nice. The food is always good.
Food excellent....good variety
I really do like MCL. And this one in particular. Pretty much anything you get here is going to be good. Maybe not the best, but at least it's going to be good. The staff on the floor is always helpful and attentive. Quick to refill your drink, or bring more napkins, etc... It's pretty quick to get through the line even if it looks stacked up. Desserts are really good here.
Makes me think of Grandma. Home cooking. Prices are a bit high.
Excellent food, comfortable seating, and relaxing atmosphere.
Really good food and very nice place!
Great bakery selection with the ability to buy their whole pies and cakes. The cafeteria style of selecting items and moving down the line is old school in a classic homestyle way. Most menu items are comfort foods and tasty. Some menu options fall flat but when I'm sick of fast food and want home cooking, best place to come.
The entrees were delicious, the bread- not so much. We both got the beef Manhattan; which, was amazing. Tender roast beef and very savory gravy on the mashed potatoes and bread. The side bread was not good at all. The cornbread I had tasted like soap with no other real flavor. The cloverleaf roll was tasteless and cold. The servers were nice and the establishment was very clean. We'll go back; but, we'll skip the side breads.
Every time I have a desert there it's always fresh and delicious!
The food is hit or miss. This time was a miss. The roast beef was well done and dry. And why can't all the line employees cut off the fat before they serve it? The younger employees just don't seem to care...nor are they friendly. This is about the Avon location. The Castleton MCL is awesome!
Is what it is a buffet line with solid favorites and cheap prices
Good fast down home cooking!
Old School cafeteria with great food, great staff, and a great selection.
Really nice facility, clean and neat As with all the MCL restaurants, lots of choices. Reminds me of home cooking
I always have a great experience the staff is always super nice and helpful ,very very clean atmosphere , the food is always fresh & homemade reminds you of home
Very friendly staff. A warm and comfortable place to take your family. Great food just like mom made. Fresh an home made very do. Love my MCL.
Fairly new looking, not over crowded. All the food was excellent a and service was GREAT. and the price was great with daily deals, ya get a chance to stop in sometime, do so, good old time country cooking....
Decent food, Good customer service
Good deal on free dessert but stay away from Blue LEMONADE, Aunty says taste like a Lil. Hug
Im a bit biased, this was my 1st job in 1984. I recently purchased my traditional dozen of the best cinnamon rolls on the face of the Earth this past Christmas. Those rolls along with all the wonderful cafeteria style options ( my favorite mashed potatoes hands done!) define my childhood. This restaurant has taken care of several generations of mine and my wife's family and is a go to when life comes at you too fast. Go and take your time and enjoy and evening or lunch transporting you back to a simpler time.
Great health food!!!
Same as always, decent food decent price
Food is good & Monday-Wednesday you get 2 free kids meals with adult so cheap way to eat
Food was great
MCL is a place that you can count on for good well prepared food from a buffet food selection line. Sometimes a little salty, but dependably hot and you have to beg for smaller portions.
Always a great place to eat. Food is always good too and fast
Lovely space with friendly staff. Food was average at best but the desserts were delicious.
Prime rib was really good. Coffee refills slow.
The fried chicken and brocolli were outstanding! Family liked the mac cheese too!
Great food and helpful staff
Horrible! I had the fried chicken. It wasn’t cooked with a golden brown coating. It was yellow and light. It tasted greasy and undercooked. I ate one piece and didn’t bother to eat the second. Thank goodness because I had an upset stomach the entire evening. I will never go back!
Roast beef and macaroni and cheese and coconut pie had good flavor. Staff was friendly. Dinning room could have used a little more attention but to be fair they were busy. I would visit again.
My family loves it. The food is adequate, it's generally quiet, and there's no waiting for your food.
I actually didnt eat at this visit..attended a meeting. So, obviously they have private meeting rooms. The food is very reasonable & good options. Great comfort food. Good for any age. Go thru line cafeteria style and pick what you want or get the special and add to it.
Delicious food, ample servings and friendly service. A little too pricey, tho.
Clean, good home cookln friendly atmosphere
Everything is either too salty or too sweet. Food selection and service are good.
Food was okay very pricey not enough to eat
Bri is awesome she's so beautiful -- and just a brain on culinary cuisine -- if you go there tell her mark said hi i
Enjoyable for a light lunch or an 8 course meal!
Overpriced for the quality. Fried chicken was no better than KFC and three times the price.
I wish I knew about this location earlier! The was no waiting, even though it was Mother's Day. And the food, as always, was delicious!
I like for the variety,food is good,place is clean. Wife doesn't like it at all.
Good service and environment, but comparatively high prices compared to many other near by restaurants.
Too expensive an small portions for the price!
Love MCL! Good home-style cooking at reasonable prices. Also, lots of variety.
Friday Friday Friday a good day for catfish
Always a dining pleasure! Love their food! Thank you!
Food like Mom cooked!
Classic American comfort food. The interior was beautiful at night and it attracts quiet patrons. It's peaceful and family oriented. Staff was attentive and nice.
Great tea selection. Amazing services. Everything was well maintained. Food was delicious. Great coffee. Great food menu.
BEST PEA SALAD IN THE WORLD Just don't have it very often anymore! Good Cafeteria Style Restaurant! Very good food! A little over priced for a Cafeteria!
Very famous foods
Have been going too mcl since I was a kid. We always called it the blue hair cafe, but the food and the restaurant is a timeless institution.
Good food, friendly place. Feels good to have healthy choices.
Friendly staff always willing to help. Food is very good and love the vegetables. Nice to be able to talk and enjoy meal with family and friends.
Good cafeteria-style food well prepared & great salads. Very helpful staff. Self- described as bakery, but, whole baked goods displayed inadequately.
The fried chicken is delicious. So is the iced tea.
This was a nicest MCL I've ever been to. I would definitely return. The only critique I had was the service from the servers was a bit lacking. The food was of MCL quality.
Great food - great service.
I enjoy MCL’s food and service. Very clean and organized restaurant. MCL food prices are a bit high at times IMO.
It's next best to homemade!
Mac cheese today was the best l ever had in my 30 plus years of dining at Mcl restaurants.....cook desires promotion.
ALWAYS fresh, tasty food and friendly service!!
Always a friendly staff and EXCELLENT food. Sunday favorite: Swiss Steak w/ mashed potatoes. Yummy.
Delicious food, very clean, great service and value in the price. I had a very nice experience and will definitely return.
I always enjoy it CDC when I go there
A place that offers options for something hot besides burgers and fries. I would definitely go again but maybe a different location.
Very good food!
Food has always been good. Clean restaurant. Servers are nice. Can't beat the all you can eat fish during lent.
Very good and my neicesx favorite place to eat
Great food, great customer care. My only critique for this day, was people don't appreciate someone sweeping near their table while eating.
Great food and service
Love it for so many reasons and memories!
Good home cooked meals service is great and friendly. They have alot of variety
Always amazed at how fresh the food is, especially the salads and fruits. It is hard to pass up items when everything looks and is so good. Get a box for leftovers and get another meal.
The food was okay, I was expecting more of an upscale buffet. A bit pricey for the limited selections.
Consistency of food makes it great
New location. Restaurant was very clean. Food and the staff were great. Looking to go back the next time we are in the area.
Avon, Indiana location (121 Avon Village Parkway) is a shining star. Two managers, a lady & agentleman (4pm 4/26/2019) treated me as if I'd walked into their home during their family-style dinner. I'm slightly disabled,tight on budget, and MCL is a treat for my mom and I. They made it more so. Second amazing service experience with absolutely delicious to-go meal in 2 weeks. Different staff, consistent service and quality. I see a pattern buliding. I'm coming back and telling everyone. Everyone. Thank you.
Good home cooked meal. Great deserts. Too far away for me.
MCL is one of those love it or hate it places. It is a cafeteria line (look at the name!), so to some it seems odd having to grab a tray. This is not an all-you-can-eat, nor is it a "pay per tray" joint. Every item has a cost and they do add up if you are not paying attention, but the food is very good quality and the selection is quite large. The staff walking around to top off the drinks are always friendly and attentive. My wife and I always enjoy eating here.
What a great place to dine..the last of remaining cafeteria chains in Columbus..their food is fantastic..I will travel 15-20 miles to dine here..very consistent every time..here is their liver n onions served on Thursdays..their tomato soup is wonderful..served on Tuesdays
Love the food , great service !!!
Last week food good, this week food horrendous. Only thing good was the cranberry relish.
Delicious! Love it.
We love MCL. Our 1st time to the Avon location. Food was exceptional! Dining room very clean and comfy! Staff was great! A+
Was very rude at counter, would not give me a meat pushed me down the line. They didn't give me a blue plate special. Even when my brother-in-law went back and confronted the manager she refused to make it good. The server at the table was incredibly nice though. His name is Bashkim and he gets a 5 of out 5.
Great Facility & Amazing Staff
Foods still good. Prices are high now.
Great place great people great food from the scratch authentic food and delicious cakes
A great home cooked meal, I will go back.
My favorite place for a home cooked meal and family get-togethers
For seniors on a fixed income, it's too expensive to come and just eat a salad. My pet peeve is the salt shaker ALWAYS being clogged because the employees don't dry them out before filling them up again. Happens every time!
I work here!!! Best food ever clean establishment!
It was clean service was very good I will go back.
Good food, friendly service and at a reasonable price.
Your food is like homemade and at a reasonable price. It's not like a buffet where everybody's touching your food. Cafeteria style which is great with lots of selection
Efficient, clean, nice, food could be better
Had the liver and onions and it was fantastic!
Good food, huge variety. Sometimes pricey if you order a lot. Service is always very good.
Excellent food but unfriendly service. Costly though.
Great food overall...usually hot and fresh...prices fairly good. 2 can eat about 30/35.00.
Best service and the food was so good and the price was very affordable
Plenty of parking, Handicap accessible, cafeteria line with excellent selections & sizable portions. Individually priced items as well as Daily specials and Mayfield options as a smaller, economical choice of entree, 2 sides & bread are one price. Salads, fruit & desserts. Restaurant atmosphere and table assistance. Variety of vegetable sides. To go orders welcome.
Amazing food great quantity and quality with amazing customer service experience
Greeted when you entered the line, portions could have been a bit larger. Attendant at table disappeared for refills. Still pleasant experience.
I had the fried chicken, green beans and mac&cheese. My chicken was cold and the mac & cheese, green beans didn't taste homemade like usual. Custard was amazing, always is. We didn't get offered drink refills or offer of a to go drink like usual either. It was slow in there so maybe why food and service wasn't up to par.
We had a nice cousin get together here. My sandwich could have been a little warmer but food is pretty good for a buffet. Kind of expensive my husband and I both thought.
This was a wonderful experience, with delicious food and great service. We greatly enjoyed our visit to this fine restaurant.
Very kind staff, I even knew one of them. They accommodated our group seating request very well and had great food.
They hold the food here until it is served... Some of it was very dry! . Be careful of what you order!
Too expensive. Got a small piece of salmon one small piece of broccoli small dish of strawberries and water and it came to almost $17.00 that is crazy! Not worth the money small portions and huge price
Good choices and a good value.
Waitresses walking around are very helpful
I eat at this MCL at least once each month because one of my communities, Humanist Community of Central Ohio [HCCO], holds its "Last-Saturday Supper" event on the last Saturday of each month, 5:00-7:00 p.m., usually in the private dining room [unless that room is being used right then]. The MCL staff is consistently welcoming and helpful and provides a wonderful location for this monthly community gathering. And the food at MCL is always delicious.
Always dependably good food. Nice variety - pleasant atmosphere and staff.
Service was great as usual. Food, however, was merely luke warm. This was a repeat of our previous visit. Friends have also commented on this same issue.
Beautiful dining room, good service, great food and a large selection to choose from. It was very hard to choose just 1 meal. Lol
Not only looks great but tastes great. Love to go to any MCL! When I can find one
Baked Tapia was really good
Always ready to serve you great food!
This is my parents-in-law choice in restaurants. They have their favorite meals, like small tilapia plate with whole corn-on-cob with coconut cream pie for dessert.
Food was decent but i dont like luke warm food so that was a deal breaker for me. I am also a chef so i expect more then most.
Really good food and nice portions. The coconut pie and pecan pie was excellent.
Very good over all. My tilopia tasted a little like metal at first. My hubby's slaw was very bland with no taste. Usually the slaw is excellent. Pies were very good. Broccoli casserole was Excellent. Chicken was excellent. Mrs. J.
Nice. The MCL sign is at ground level. So most people don't know that MCL is here. Management would have more customers if the MCL sign was up in the air. But maybe they want to keep it hidden and hope people find this fine cafeteria style restaurant.
Just didn't like it!
Nice place to eat
Fast service good food.
One of my favorite places to eat since I've been a child and I'm 58 years old.
Love the food, hat the prices.
Expensive, especially for a cafeteria style eatery!
I enjoyed their catfish Wednesday!!!
Great food and comfortable place to eat. We will definitely be back for dinner.
The food was ok but for me needed more salt/seasoning .
Nice yummy lunch. Great home cooked like food.
Filling. I know this is a chain, but the liver and onions are better than mom made. Vegetables and salads are good and who can say no to Jello and deviled eggs. Friendly staff. Great managers.
Our family eats here every Sunday. The food is awesome! Good variety. Something for everyone. Staff are friendly. Restaurant very clean. Love the fact that you can take out if you don't feel like dining in
Very good food
Roast beef was too rare. Corn bread was dry and cold. Rest was good.
New location, to us. Food was good, location exceptionally clean. Servers neet and clean.
Really good eats, except a bit pricey.
Meat Loaf Ok But No Beets To Night
It's an amazing place !! The food was deliciuos.
Very nice family place
There was a lovely oriental lady that was extremely efficient and good at her job
My Aunt's favorite place to eat.
It was delicious! I love their food.
We go here regularly with a group that uses the private room. The food is always excellent and the service fantastic. Always a pleasure to return!
A Worse Golden Corral. Not much flavor in anything, everything is cold, etc. Typical old people restaurant. Decent pricing though. Custard was very watery. Won’t be back.
Peg is the best waitress in town.
Excellent food and friendly staff!
Perfect prime rib and warm comfortable service
Very nice place
High price good food
Nothing special. Too salty for me.
Food ok but way over priced for the quality!!!
Well prepared foods, good variety, excellent portions. Quick and friendly service. Establishment is clean and very inviting. Staff is quick to serve with a smile. Prices are reasonable able for what you get.
Reasonable portions for dietary concerns. Pleasant atmosphere.
Nice people and good food
Great food and hardly any lines even on a Friday night (hard to find in Avon), but pricing could be better. Everything is Al Le Carte so don't let your eyes be bigger than your stomach.
yum a little pricey but...yum
Always so fresh. Love the food. A little expensive for the portion. Friendly service.
Our family has been going to the MCL in Kingsdale since 1972. I hope this will portray for you friends the quality and consistency of this restaurant. You get a meal here that will remind you of the way eating out should be. You can go there and feel like you had a home cooked meal, and it will be the same wonderful taste every time. And they have something for every one every day. From a healthy salad or fruit plate, an appetizer, a small meal to a large one consisting of chicken, beef, pork, or one of several seafoods, and much more, you will enjoy your meal and look forward to next time before you leave. If I could give MCL a hundred stars I would. You hear that sometimes, but I hope our 47 years of going there will express to you there is a reason they are still there and a reason you will want to check it out. It will be your go to place again and again for a quick meal, a leisurely one, or a big family celebration...they can accommodate you and it will become a tradition for you, too. Hope this helps encourage you to try it, you'll be so glad you did!
Excellent food (Yesterday I had one of the best cheeseburgers I’ve had lately) and cordial helpful staff. Fresh baked goods. Chili was very good although I would have liked it more spicy. Wish there more MCLs around city.
Its one of the nicer MCLs but during the later hours the food tends to be pretty dry. I was disappointed.
Great selections. Good service. Main hot foods was cold once at the table.
Good food. Decent price. Wonderful selection
It is way too easy to get too much food, because it looks so good. Their daily special is always tempting.
It's clean and efficient we'll say. I liked the location they just closed in Westerville, Ohio better. Perhaps that's being a creature of habit. The staff is friendly and helpful and I like the comfort food that they make so well :-)
Great food, generous portion. Did not enjoy the music.
Clean friendly people food was good in hot
Always fast, the food is good, and tonight the service was especially great!
Normally you can't go wrong with this place. Tonight was an exception. I think the food warmer wasn't functioning correctly. So the food was like warm.
Overpriced and how hard is it to make enough yeast rolls for dinner?
Salmon and good veggies
This place is disgusting
