“Go-to” Place for an Enjoyable Meal

A few years ago, Tivoli Gardens made a choice to move into its new location, just as several nearby restaurants were closing or leaving for younger and faster-growing neighborhoods. Remaining choices are mostly fast food shops or places that close after lunch. Tivoli Gardens is a traditional... read more

Staying at the Windmill Suites opposite this looked the best place to eat as it was within walking distance. When we entered we were asked if we wanted a seat near the music or away from it. Not having a clue what was going on we chose to be away from it. It turns out that there is live entertainment... More

This was within walking distance of our hotel. While the restaurant does cater to the snow bird clientele we had a great time. The food was delicious. A great experience.

Liked this place - it's gone from a Chinese Buffet to German to what it is now - great spot for breakfast. We took our daughter and family for breakfast and as they are vegetarian that asked to substitute the meat for hashbrowns or a muffin and while the server cheerfully made the substitution, there was an "upcharge"! Really, you... More

Tivoli Gardens is a good, All American type of restaurant, It has a visibly loyal senior groups who appear to come there regularly. The restaurant has "first name regulars" that are greeted by the staff. Lou, the owner, seated us for the dinner we had at Tivoli, very nice person. The owner, Lou, takes such personal pride in the service... More

This restaurant is across the street from the Windmill Inn. It was very convienient to walk over for a meal. It is open from 7:00AM - 9:00PM. The food is very good. They have pasta, fish, steaks and other kinds of food at dinner. We really enjoyed the restaurant. It is not fast food however.

Referred by neighbor who has been dining here since before they moved to present location. Our first visit last week, for early dinner. Will return! Huge place, yet warm -- even cozy -- atmosphere. Music not too loud; always one of my concerns. Food above average, reasonably priced; and service quick and cheery. Husband enjoyed the liver and onions.

We have had breakfast here several times. Always good with an efficient staff. They are eager to please and to accomodate large parties. There is no gluten free menu; this keeps me from trying lunch or dinner.

Wow! This place has great food at great prices with great service. Perfect after a long day on the road. PS If you like liver, you won't be disappointed here.
