Good Food and Great Service

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... read more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2015

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

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!

Nice 'pub' atmosphere that we miss from the UK. Also has decent food menu and live music. It was nice and busy when we went on a Friday night and the live music was good.

A nice dining experience, a little overpriced and tables were a bit close but the service was very good and the meals well prepared and presented.

We had a business dinner on a Wednesday evening in this place which was more or less empty when we arrived at 18.00. The waitress was nice and managed to serve us in a friendly and descrete way during the whole dinner. The food was good and tasty, but nothing extraordinary, and the wine list contained some good choices at... More

We have been patrons of Palmer's Restaurant for well over a decade, going there for romantic dinners for 2, small family meals, and a few large celebrations with pre- planned menus. The food is always delicious, well-presented. The staff is loyal, accommodating, with many staff members there for many years, forming relationships with long-time patrons. The prices are not low...
