Holly and I were in Connersville for a gig, and were looking for a place for dinner between dress rehearsal and the show, and stumbled upon Daniel’s Girls restaurant.
It’s a relative newcomer to the Connersville dining scene, they’ve been open slightly less than a year, it seems. It’s quite a large restaurant, and I’d describe the decor as “comfy”. The staff is pleasant and friendly, and it appears to be very much a hometown restaurant–although it’s a gathering place for the locals, we were made to feel right at home.
The menu is what you’d expect from a small town restaurant, heavy on the comfort food, with a surprise or two thrown in.
When I spied a tenderloin on the menu, the fact that it’s offered either grilled or hand breaded sold me.
This is a good sandwich. The breading is decent, but lacked a bit of seasoning in my opinion. The meat was just a tad try, possibly from being overcooked just a bit. Mind you, this isn’t a bad sandwich by any stretch of the imagination. It’s a little above average, I’d rate it a 3 out of 5 bites.
For her dinner, Holly chose the fried haddock bites and said they were outstanding – very lightly breaded and full of flavor.
I want to give a special shout out to the staff at Daniel’s Girls. There was a HUGE funeral dinner in the house, with very few open seats for walk in traffic. They did a fantastic job of making sure everyone was taken care of in a timely manner, all the while maintaining a professional and friendly atmosphere.
Daniel’s Girls Farmhouse Restaurant is located at 600 N Central Ave, Connersville, Indiana. I was unable to locate a website for them, but they do have a Facebook page.
