About Us

Lester’s is a small family diner with a cozy atmosphere and a special local history. Owners Chad and his sister Kim both grew up in the restaurant business. Chad remembers being 5 years old, standing on a stool washing dishes at his Aunt Phyllis’ restaurant, Phyllis’ Grill, in Adrian.

One day Chad and Kim were reminiscing about their family’s history in the restaurant business and 3 days later, they purchased their diner to carry on the Miller family tradition that started more than 60 years ago right here in Adrian. The restaurant is named after our grandfather, Lester Miller, the first person in our family to get involved in the business. Today, Kim’s daughter Auna helps out in the diner.

We want customers to come in, relax, and enjoy a home-style meal that will remind them of something grandma used to make because that’s where our recipes came from. We only serve the freshest ingredients from premium meats to breads, fruits, and vegetables in the spirit of our family’s tradition.
