Always Good

I always have low expectations walking in to a restaurant like I thought Tivoli was going to be. But after several visits I know I can always go and expect the same high quality, well prepared dishes. I don't care what you get it always seems to be about right. I have eaten many Reuben Sandwiches... read more

As I peeked out my hotel window at 8 a.m., I saw the parking lot @ Tivoli's full. "Interesting" I thought. An Italian restaurant opened that early ... Of course they were serving breakfast. My first impression came from going to dinner. They do Italian well. The husband ordered Lasagna. I snagged a bite it was delicious. As for me... More

This restaurant has quite a variety of entrees - Italian, American and even soups and sandwiches. Our spaghetti was very good - shared with husband - had 2 huge meatballs and a very tasty sauce. The hot wings were some of the best I have eaten. Onion rings were crisp, vegetable beef soup very good and Caesar salad great! Parking... More

Great entertainment on Friday night. Music of the 60's along with a dance floor that was well used by patrons. Dinner entrees were excellent. Not overly expensive ($14) and included a dessert. Non-alcoholic beverages added for just $1.

My husband and I ate here a few times while staying at a hotel across the street. The place was always packed, mostly with more mature folks. The servers were great. Lot's of choices on the menu. The food was very good and the prices were low compared to most other sit-down restaurants. There is live music at night, but... 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

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 restaurant. Although it’s a longer drive for us, Tivoli Gardens is our “go-to”... 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
