To help narrow down your choices of fabulous restaurants, we created a list of our favorites featuring Italian eateries, English-style pubs, Asian cafes and much more.


Ale & Cider House

Due to COVID-19, the Ale & Cider House has transformed into a drink-only establishment, but they have been partnering with other local restaurants and food trucks to provide a fantastic dining experience! Check them out on Facebook to keep up with their current offerings.
