REVIEWS OF MCL Restaurant & Bakery Castleton IN Indiana

Greg Schulte

Needs just a little help keeping the dishes glassware cleaner the food was good.

Steven Sexton

MCL is a place you come to if you're looking for comfort food that is descent quality for great prices. It is cafeteria style and there are a ton of options to choose from. They offer many entrees, salads, desserts and drinks. Service is always friendly. I would definitely recommend this location.

charles dale

good place to eat lunch on a snowy day. stuffed chicken breast and green beans. yum

Jack Bowman

Nice and clean...servers clean off your table and bring you drinks or what ever you need.... people you must leave the servers a tip even tho you carry your own tray to your table ...they do clean up your mess...

Darren Gustin

It was over priced and portions weren't very big and all the food was bland. it was fairly clean and aside from the very confused guy fishing out food, everyone was pretty friendly

MARC Deschambault

Always tasteful food and comfortable atmosphere with friendly hosts

Food is good but over priced

Linda Smith

Love MCL! I stopped in for a to go order close to closing time. They were all very helpful and friendly. Good food at close to the price I would have paid for junk food.

Jean Davenport12

Lots of delicious entries. Very nice and friendly workers waiting on us.

Keith Jenkins

Decent food, pretty friendly staff but needs deep cleaning. For those who have dust allergies or are sensitive to dust should file suggestions for better cleaning. Other than that good experience.

Robert Hanson

Good homemade food.

Brenda Williamson

Love this place. Food is awesome. Very nice people working there.

Dyfed Richards

Brilliant time. Strange ordering concept. Felt a bit like high school but we got what we wanted and plenty of it. Everyone left happy and full.

KyleYorn .

Hair in my food. Sorry MCL I just can't do it...

Kyle R

Personally didn't care much for it. Not much taste to it.

d mc

Quality food, great selection and the staff is efficient and courteous!


Great place, great food, nice atmosphere, very clean & the servers are extremely nice & helpful. Have eaten there since the beginning & have never been disappointed. Coconut cream pie is to die for!! And I’m very picky, if I lived closer I would dine there probably 4 or 5 days a week!

Ceecee Coan

We love MCL. Their food is sooooo good!!! We recommend it to everyone we know.

garry Brown

Good service and the food is always like home cooking...

Richard Mcguire

Food and service was good yet out of mac and cheese for a few min unless wanting to wait (it must be good but understandable being out for the time being) so I had the roast beef slices, 2 sides of mashed potatoes and gravy, soda and 2 strawberry shortcakes (highly recommend the strawberry shortcake) bill was $22 which seems on the expensive side

Dawn Saffel

The food is always good, and a great selection. I love their fried chicken, chicken & dumplings are right good too. The pie selection was pretty good. Our family gathers there when we are in town.

Travis Mumford

Great service. Several steps up from buffet eating. Food was good. Fried chicken, shrimp, cake, cookies... Everything we tried was great.

Michelle Armatis

There's always something for everyone. Several options, and the BEST Sweet Tea!

Gail P

Held our HOA meeting in their meeting room. Great location and service!


After I moved away from the area, MCL is one of the places I missed the most. I didn't think that would be the case, but it was. The pecan pie is very special Also the roast beef cooked to a perfect medium.YUM! The green beans are also really good! Plus, friendly folks that have worked there for years! They wont tell you this but TIP your server!!!

Bonnie Walker

Great food. Visit often.

Jana Humphrey

Great service and wonderful food.

Jasmine Hunter

It's okay for what it is. Don't trust the Mac n Cheese... And if you like fish you'll be good!

Kathrina Riley

Easy to see from the road. All selections look delicious.

Tracy Vatne

Miranda Tyler

Nice food. Nice meeting place.

Stephan's Larry

Decent place , awesome customer service, nothing out of ordinary

Meda Wara

I'm only giving 2 stars because the employees were friendly. The food was gross, flavorless, cold and expensive. Actually, it might have been the worst food I've ever eaten . Between my meal (chicken livers, mashed potatoes w/gravy and green beans) I ate maybe 1/4th of it and that was all I could choke down. Cold liver is nasty. My daughter got the kids spaghetti w tomato sauce, corn on the cob, fake orange mac and cheese, roll and strawberry short cake. She ate the roll, cake and corn. Complete waste of money. The waitress offered to get us something else but I would rather go home and eat cereal. The ice water was ok!

Rachel Holton

Very clean and great service! Just like I always remembered thank you for the nice meal!

David Holscher

Good food selection at good prices.

david ikerd

Fried chicken and Mac and cheese was cold on Sunday after church. I do not recommend

Evelyn Brown

It was all good.. yams needed extra brown sugar but good

Kassie Ritman

Consistent quality and friendly staff

Dee Allen

Food was yummy and service was great

William Burton

Everything you get is hot and tasty, always try to eat here when I'm in the area.

Greg Isaacs

I used to at MCL a lot as a family would eat there on Sundays. I moved away but was back in town for a few days. What a treat to eat at MCL again. The cafeteria model of restaurants is LOST ART. They have THE BEST roast beef and pecan pie. I was thrilled to see the value plate which consisted of a choice between a few meats, 2 sides, and A bread. The PRICE was definitely right. Do yourself a favor and eat here.

Stephen Zylstra

We had good food and excellent service.

Nan Van

Clean, well-run cafeteria. Very attentive staff. Food is good. Servers appear periodically to offer drink refills or fetch anything else needed. Recommended.

Janne Jackon

Great customer service! & one if the best MCL's in the city!

Danielle West

Love the service, food, & atmosphere.

Brian May

I have dined at this location on Mondays for over 25 years with a friend. Food is excellent most times. Occasionally the serving size is small or the entree selection isn’t very good. Best cinnamon rolls and bread pudding! Reubens are excellent,

msmoker37 .

Well it's not my go to place but my Grandparents love it so I go with them. Definitely a cafeteria feeling place waiting in the line. This particular location the dining room is pretty nice though.

Bonnie Tucker

I got the pecan pie for my dessert. It was 99 cent Thursday for the pie of the week. I got chicken wrapped over stuffing. Mashed potatoes with chicken gravy. And some green bean casserole. A dinner roll that was very soft. And a Pepsi. Oh! And some deviled eggs. The staff was quick and very helpful. The bathrooms we're clean. However I only had a credit card and no cash for a tip for our waiter. We felt very unsettling when we went to the cashier and asked for change for a twenty and they told us that they couldn't give us change unless we bought a gift card. So we left the waiter a tip with some change of coins that we had between the two of us. I would recommend this location cause they are in a good neighborhood. Also because the price is not too bad.


Delicious food clean restaurant helpful staff all you can eat catfish on Friday Made my meal complete

Kelly Omaha

4✭ Good service. We've been to better and worse but not bad here. Clean, older decor.

AJ Bergman

Great food, great service. Staff was kind when we asked for a to-go box and drink. Would love to see a veggie plate special in the future

Tee Blake

Always the best fried chicken anywhere. Great salad with mixed greens sliced strawberries walnuts and big slivers of parmesan cheese. Poppyseed dressing. Yum! Veggies not so great. Mashed potatoes are awful. Gravy too. Broccoli overcooked but by far a better choice. Carrots not too bad. Dinner rolls are the best. Coconut cream pie or custard finish me off for the day.

Rashida Davis

It is an institution for a lot of people. My only issue is the lack of hair nets. Gross! I know older people love it, but I need the staff to listen and pay more attention to the patrons. I know sometimes our elders seem indecisive, but be patient. Show them the respect you would give your own grandparents.

Taryn Klein

Ehhh, I went for the bbn lover and onion special. Liver is hard to cook, cooks so fast and over cooked liver is rubbery. I'm not sure why I expected it not to be overcooked being it was sitting on the line. Macaroni wasn't amazing either. First time going I dont think we will.go back overall a disappointing experience.

Tawnya Ballard

The food and atmosphere is always great

Garr Ray

Good food good service clean place for a family meal


great food, pleasany atmosphere

Tiffany Blackmon

Good customer service and good food.

Joyce Allen

Great family eating establishment. The fresh vegetables are always available...and diverse. The fried catfish is a winner. Desserts are to die for. Everything is a la cart.

Devon Roberson

Went for mother's day! Real good

Linda Lakes

Food was delicious and service great.

Jamie Blaydes

Always GREAT food. Menu changes daily. Good place for families with children. Very casual. Great for groups.

Daniel A Critchfield

Really good cafeteria food. Not always hot enough and the selection doesn't very much over time and it's a little pricey. But they do have quality food over all.

Joseph Rollins

Good food, great service

Browning Nixdorf

It has all the flavor of buffet food without the freedom of being able to serve yourself.

Kim Mitchell

House of everything that's good

kitten54619 .

Our party had booked the banquet room and we were told that another party was there and wasn't going to leave. Even though that it was a communication error(not on our part) we were seated in a nice section and the server took great care of us. The food was good and the cheesecake was AMAZING! It was the best part of my meal!! Nice and thick and not too sweet.

Michele Hodges

Food & Service Superb..#allucaneatcatfish

Barbara Bowser

You can never go wrong eating there. I think their prices are off the wall. But I have eaten there for over 40 years and it is still my favorite choice for dinner.

Doris Moss

The chickon was dry and salty again

Ready Red

Five stars all the mcl is one of my most trusted and favorite places to eat and amongst all of the locations I frequent castleton square is definitely my favourite one . Its very relaxed inside even at busy times . The food is always done wonderful with many professional skilled cooks to help you, many familiar faces that have been there for years not typical of today's times but this place is great. Beautiful decor exquisite restrooms large dining room quiet elegant atmosphere and fantastic food so much variety with menus and specials changing day to day . This place is a must check out be sure to tip your server

Debbie Edwards

Services was good but The food was tasteless. Me and my family members have been going to MCLs for about all of my life. (63yrs) but I have never tasted food at an MCL like I did today. It had no seasoning or flavor I wouldn't have believed I was at MCL if I hadn't known I was, by the taste of the food today.I don't know what went wrong with this restraunt But I won't be eating at that one anymore. Their mashed potatoes were watery and no seasoning at all on the green beans no onion, no bacon bits, or flavoring at all just water.the slaw was the same but was not cut up as small so it was harder to chew. Rolls were good but very much smaller. Price a lot higher food awful something or someone should check on this restraunt.

Anthony Huffman

Nice to know that they pulled the benefits from the employees to save a dollar, nice to know that they want their employees to work off of the clock. If that is not believable check the Springfield Illinois store. At least 5 employees goin in and working off the clock just to make their numbers look good and to make sure the job is done cause management wont do it themselves. So let's short staff people and have the ones who stay pick up the slack. Like I stated earlier if you think that employees working off the clock is not true ,, then please by all means just go and check the store out and the cameras.

Lorena Forte

I love it. Fresh and friendly

Debbie Bowles

Always good food and serve here!! Home cooking quality. Today my husband asked for a bit more roast beef on his Manhattan. The server reluctantly served as the manage scolded my husband. Embarrassing! He always gets manhattans and has never had to request for an adequate amount of beef. Hope this was just a fluke at holiday time and not considered the new norm!

UndrA Nicholson

Great and helpful staff excellent food!

david parrish

been here many times as good as it gets to home cooked meals two can eat for about 20.00 with 2 meat entrees and 2 side dishes each. the cinnamon roll is fantastic!!

Rachel Gupton

Went there for comfort food. Came out very disappointed. I didnt realize they charged per item. And I had told them it was our first time there and asked them to explain how it worked. Cornbread was super dry. All of the food we had was mediocre at best

Jennifer Fernandez

Delicious as usual! Catie was especially gracious to us. We love her! Thank you MCL

Eva Moore

Good food, nice people, decent prices

Mark Frye

Typical MCL - good food at a good price!

Helen Zylstra

We had nice choices and good food. The best was the great service.

Chad Bauerle

Staff was out going & friendly, food was hot & delicious.

Steve Freels

Very nice place. Very clean, with friendly folks.

Ashley Obando

Awesome food and service!!!

Judy Brooks

Mom 85th birthday awesome time and the food is excellent....We love it service was great

Debora Lynembrown

This is the best MCL location I have ever been to. Absolutely great food! The service was excellent. I recommend you visit this location.

Brad Anderson

I have been a MCL customer for multiple decades and today's meal was the best to date. The Yankee pot roast and mashed potatoes was perfectly cooked. The beef was well seasoned, moist and tender. The vegetables were still just a little firm so not mushy and the gravy was excellent. Of course, national pie day deserves to be celebrated with a piece of pie and the lite granny Smith apple pie was up to the challenge.

marge bill

Great food, very clean, excellent customer service staff. We had the private room from 11:00 to 3:00. We were kept full of tea and water. All of our attendees were complimentary of the facilities. We will be back next year.

Queenie Nottellin

The food was not good it was just okay. They're overpriced. For the food you get. I paid 695 from one piece of fish. Another $3 for my side of vegetable. And another $3 for a side of mashed that were not even real potatoes they were instant. We don't live in this area and one of the natives of Indianapolis told us it was good food. I was very disappointed

Joe Smith

This place was very clean and a beautiful setting. Food tasted great. A little on the pricey side but overall it was decent.

C OBrien

Prices are getting a little out of line

Travis Hackbarth

I haven't been to an MCL in several years because they left the city where I live years ago. So we went here for nostalgia reasons. This restaurant had very friendly staff, and looked high end with nice couches in the lobby. Of course the fried chicken I came to love years ago was a nice trip down memory lane and as good as ever. I'm from Fort Wayne and this was in Fishers IN.

Marg Belch

I love MCL. I’m never disappointed. Wish we still had one in Fort Wayne. I used to eat there every day. Delicious!!

Travis Little

Well-prepared comfort food. A little on the expensive side for a full meal with drink, but it's not exorbitant for the homemade prep and good selections. The location runs well, and employees always are friendly and warm. Sometimes the food runs slightly conservative on seasoning, but that seems to be common for the clientele they mainly serve.

Jeff Lahman

Food was fantastic, recipes followed, white rolls under-proofed but soft and tasty. Service was very attentive.

Laura Socha

We love the fresh ingredients and home cooked feel.


Great customer severs all the way though the line and the floor staff is veryy friendly

Chi or Chakra

Classic home cooked meals. A little on the pricey side, but good nonetheless. Excellent customer service too!

Ken Knepp

Still the best food around. Quality and service are great. Price is median to high for this type of meal but well worth it.

Hattie Moore-bradley

The service was great. My fried catfish wasn't all that; it lacked flavor, it wasn't hot and the was some meat missing from my serving of crust. I pushed it to the side. The coleslaw wasn't to my liking. I loved my dinner roll. Maybe next time.

Thomas Wilson

Very good service and very good food

Mischell Johnson

Service, atmosphere and food was great

Roxanne Hargis

Food was very good and employees were friendly and courteous. Prices were a little high.

Ashley Sholar

This MCL Cafeteria is definitely thee best!!! Tammi, Jessica, Ashley, Jeff took special care of me on my birthday weekend!!! So nice and fun! I love em!!!! I will be back soon!!!

Frani Munden

Food was really good. However, I can't say the same about the service. We never had a waitress even come to our table. We had to keep going up for our own refills. Not likely to return to this location, sadly.

B yvette

An American classic everyone must go sometime in life old-fashioned comfort food an old-timey feel wonderful

Sharon Butz

Food was delicious as always. Everyone courteous. However, we usually don't get the entree dinner. When I asked if a roll came with it no one knew. So, we did without. Later I noticed our friends had a carryout box and asked what kind of pie they got. She said it was their rolls from their meal. We both used BOGO half price coupons and got the dinner. Didn't set too well with me but was too late so didn't say anything.

Justin Hunt

Sooo good!

Steven Stafford

Very good. Seemed a little pricey but food and service was good.

Kim Garmany

Awesome mashed potatoes
