Came here as a possibility of having our wedding here. Very clean and elegant look. Staff was very friendly and professional. Michele was our server and also the dining room manager. Food choices on their menu is a bit limited but, everyone should be able to find something. Both my fiance and... read more

Palmer's is a lovely place to entertain family, friends and loved ones. The menu offered delicious appetizers, calimari for one, great steaks and to die for deserts. The service was very good and our waitress was very pleasant. Palmer's offers outdoor eating, pub dining and dining room upstairs. Can't wait to go there again! Panam1961

We are in town for a hockey tournament with two kids and came here for a nice, relaxing dinner. When we were initially seated, there was an extremely loud group in the dining area and they immediately offered us seating upstairs away from the noise. We had the best steak and shrimp, waitress was very attentive even though we were... More

The atmosphere was great! We sat out on the patio and had a very good dinner with a beautiful view of the white church steeple in the distance.

We had been to Palmer's many years ago and it did not disappoint this time around. The waitress was outstanding. She was patient and more than willing to accommodate my grandchildren. We ate in the upstairs dining room which could use some update. It is a nice space but rather dark. However the décor did not interfere with our delicious... More

Here for a business dinner with about 15 people recently. They took our drink orders very quickly and our food orders as well, they brought all appetizers and the main course in a very timely manner so that no one had to wait for the others to get their food. Also very attentive in refilling our drinks or asking if... More

My boss and I go to Palmer's ever few months for lunch for two reasons: They have outdoor seating when the weather cooperates and the food is usually very good. We went yesterday and felt totally ripped off. She got the salad with shrimp, goat cheese and a few other things, her usual order. I ordered the special salad which... More

There is nothing to complain about here - outdoor seating, fresh food that serves a variety of tastes, bartenders who know how to mix a cocktail and pour beer, live music, and much more!
