The first Family Diner originally opened in Gladwin back in 2007 by founder Ken Hannah (my Dad). At that time it was called Robin’s Restaurant. Dad let the patrons sitting around drinking coffee decide on what to change the name to. Which sounds better? Family Restaurant or Family Diner. Obviously Family Diner won-out. He agreed because “nothing is finer than a family diner”.
Fast forward to 2012. My Dad was approached by a Lake City local who expressed the need for a family-style restaurant. He fell in love with the lake and the second Family Diner (this restaurant) was born. We've also had a third Family Diner in Beaverton since 2013.
I started working directly with my father on our renovations in 2012. Over the last year, however, my father has brought me on board and I've began managing what we now call "our family business."
We're all about family, friends and bonding over a warm meal served at the dinner table. Check-out our menu and you'll find that many of our selections are named after - and were created for - someone close to us...usually a relative or regular guest we consider our own family.
Consider joining us the next time you're out and about. We'd love to have you and you can bet your bottom dollar that nothing is finer than our own Family Diner.
