Shoney's: nice family restaurant
This is a nice clean restaurant with an area of wooden tables and chairs and a section of booths with the signature red-and-white decor. At lunchtime, the waitress will seat you and take your order or give you menus and a bit of time to decide.
Choose the Turkey Club sandwich with bacon and lettuce and mayonaise, cut into four large triangles that are bigger than your mouth. (Remember to remove the toothpick before biting).
You get fries (or potato chips and cole slaw) and a dill pickle and a coke. They also have a tasty plate of fish and chips (white fish fillets breaded and fried, along with french fried potatos). Either meal is $7.
The staff is always friendly and my wife usually ends up in some conversation about an ailment that she has in common with someone the waitess knows. The atmosphere and dress is casual and comfortable. Nobody rushes you if you linger and talk over your last cup of coffee.Related to:

Harveytown Off The Beaten Path
visit Harveytown Park
This is the newest and the smallest of the area parks. It has all of six picnic tables, a couple of grillstands, one playground area and one public restroom. The trees in the park are all less than 10 years old so there is not much shade area so far. They have added a nice concrete area where you can sit and keep dry in the spring when the rest of the grounds are mostly mud.
There is one shelter building that is rentable for under $50 a day if you have need of a group facility. The parks committee has plans for a garden area and a ball field to be added in the near future (sometime after 2006) and later a skating area.Related to:
