Stopped in for dinner. The interior is very home feeling, and the service is friendly and efficient. The menus offered a good selection of entrees, and both the entrees we ordered were extremely tasty. The turkey pot pie is definitely on our return list!

Glenn's has a wonderful selection of fresh teas for you to choose from...to sit and have a relaxing pot of tea or even purchase some for home. What an awesome concept, having a sample of each tea for you to smell. I love the quiet and relaxing atmosphere at Glenn's.
