Absolutely beautiful place with great service. I wasn’t super hungry so maybe that’s why I gave 4/5 stars! I would definitely go back!!!

Been there several times, but this time, there were some changes. No one to greet us, had to wait around for someone to come to the front. Bread buns were dry. Not one of us took more than a bite. Menu is limited. Just ok. Going to try somewhere different.

I lead our car club tour to this location for dinner. Made reservations a week earlier for 17. They were all setup and ready for us when we arrived. They waited on us quickly and we got our food in great time. We were seated in the bar, but the tv volume was low so we could talk without issues. I got a soup and salad, the soup was excellent and the salad was very good, but too much for me to eat.

Made reservation two weeks prior. Upon arrival restaurant mostly empty. Hostess puts us in side room at table next to bathroom door and kitchen door several feet way. I checked dining room and asked to be relocated. Hostess refused saying those tables were for same reservation time I had. I questioned why since we were ontime for our reservation we couldn't be seated as first come first serve. Still refused and was rude. People started coming in 20 mins after us and no one was seated in runoff area we were in until we were leaving. I asked to speak to manager who was not at location but a senior employee came to apoogize. It was just bad. However, food was very good even though the soup and salad came with the meal instead of before

Almost Home is consistently good service and food. One of the better dining options in Greencastle where you can find some healthier options on the menu. I've had the salmon and the chicken bruschetta for dinner and both are very good. My husband likes the tilapia dinner. Wish they had more options for my vegetarian gluten free daughter, but soup and salad from their menu will have to suffice for now. We will definitely be going back while my daughter is at DePauw.

First time trying some upscale dining in Greencastle for our anniversary. Almost Home was actually a great place. We started with the Bruschetta, she the had the Cesar Salad and I had the roasted red pepper and Gouda soup. She had the salmon stuffed with crab meat with sweet potatoes and vegetables. I had the 8oz filet with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The meals were quite tasty. The fish was cooked just right and my steak was perfect. The portions were a bit larger than expected. We ended up taking a slice of Black Forest cake with us as we were too full for dessert.

The restaurant was not busy, which made it easy to talk. The wait staff were helpful and the entire set up of the three buildings was interesting. Tall people should avoid the booth seating.

We had reservations for Mother's Day and had a booth directly across from the buffet tables. This was unsatisfactory.
We requested to be moved to one of the other rooms but was told no.

The food was good and our server/waitress was outstanding.

Place was empty and it took over 20 minutes to get 4 glasses of wine. Second time we ordered later in the evening also took 20 minutes to get the wine. Someone had the salad with grilled chicken on top, chicken was cold. Small filet was $ 35.00. Saturday night and the place was almost empty, obvious something is wrong.

we had been there in the past and had been very happy with it. Manager said they were understaffed with only 1 bar tender, how long does it take to pour 4 glasses of wine ? we will not be back

Our 10 to 12 member group gets together 3 or 4 times a year. Often, even good restaurants drop below expectations with that large of a party. That was not the case with Almost Home. Food was good, service was excellent and desserts were divine.

I hadn’t been there for about 10 years as I live out of town. It was a favorite of mine and wanted to share with my husband, he is impressed and definitely will be returning! Everyone was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We were staying at a state park so was a drive to get there but worth it.

Atmosphere could be very good, but we sat near the door which leads to the bar where a live band was playing. Music was loud and ruined the dining experience. Food was mediocre at best. Drink was good! Overpriced and very disappointed. Probably won't return unless someone reaches out to me with explanation

The restaurant is very lovely and nostalgic feeling. There's great ambiance.

Our service was extremely poor. We were there more than an hour and a half due to the slow service... drinks were never refilled, had to ask for bread for the table, then had to ask for bread plates. I was served a grilled chicken dish in a bowl, which made for interesting cutting of the meat... Server never brought us our check, so had to go to hostess station, so we could pay and leave...

We have been there many times before but Sunday we were there 20 minutes before they took our lunch order and an hour before we got served. People came in after us and were leaving before we even got served. All the server would say was the owner was in the kitchen that day and was sorry and if we came back we could have a complimentary desssert. Having been in the restaurant business I probably would have offered to comp the meal. We don't ever complain and always give restaurants the benefit of the doubt but this was not a pleasant experience

I visit Greencastle every year at this time. I always make time to have dinner at Almost Home. It's that good. They have trimmed their menu a bit, but what's on it is tasty and served beautifully. The service staff are super super friendly and they know their stuff. I had the mile-high meatloaf, and I thought I would not be able to eat all of it. Lo and behold, my plate was clean! It was exactly like Mom used to make. And the desserts are always interesting. They have a new cake, whose name I can't remember, but it is basically like a cinnamon coffee cake with rich frosting. If I lived there, I would honestly eat that every. single. day. Mouth-watering! Prices are reasonable, wines are delicious. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant! Well-done, Greencastle!
