Almost like another place of worship

This past Sunday, my wife and I, along with our two children, made plans for lunch at the Harmony House Restaurant in Harmony right after Sunday School at Christ Lutheran Church of Preston.

I've been to the Harmony House Restaurant many times, whether weekdays or weekends, and it's always a pleasure.

The best way I could describe it is simply "home cooking." With a down-to-earth atmosphere, this very busy restaurant hosts a wide variety of guests. And, let me tell you, that home cooking is just like mom, grandma, and great-grandma use to make.

I ordered the roast turkey plate which included homemade mashed potatoes with delicious gravy and a side of stuffing. Seriously, folks, this food was heavenly. And, it always is, every time I grab a bite at the Harmony House Restaurant. I almost felt like I was enjoying a Thanksgiving feast in mid-March. I didn't see a couch in the restaurant prepped for my potential tryptophan coma, but I would have gladly paid some cushion rent to snag a cat nap. Actually, I must confess that I did take a 15 to 20 minute nap on the car ride home back to Fountain. No, I wasn't driving. My wife was behind the wheel, and I was catching flies.

And, what's even more interesting is how many people I saw from our church in Preston dining at the Harmony House Restaurant that particular day following the combination of a worship service and Sunday School class. One could surmise that people who attend church on Sunday's flock together for dining purposes, as well. Food always seems to bring people together, doesn't it?

I'm sure the welcoming environment and friendly wait staff makes all the difference in the world at this important restaurant in Harmony. That's what it takes to be successful in any business, and the Harmony House Restaurant has a great team and owner Marilyn Gregorson to keep customers coming back for their next dining experience. I know my family will be back again real soon.

I feel fortunate to live in an area where we have absolutely no corporate-owned restaurants. Every restaurant in our area is family owned and operated. Every dining establishment in the area provides something unique from the ambiance to the tasty bites that keep us coming back for more. We have a great selection of restaurants right here in our own backyard, and I plan on sharing my dining experiences from one town to the next.

Look for this feature every week in the Fillmore County Journal, along with online under the Real Bites section.
