Driving through harsh rain and wind, out to a small country town off the beaten path, we weren't expecting to find such a gem. The place is very home-style, with wooded walls and red check table cloths. The food is big proporttions, and basically a 4 course meal - salad AND soup AND antipasta AND fresh bread - THEN your...

This place was my first job, and while there have been changes over the last thirty years, it is still a very similar establishment. More comfort and volume over ecclectic. Cool bar and old town atmosphere. If you order a meat dish in the dinning room (as opposed to bar), they over feed you. Not sure if it is still... More

I'm grateful for every opportunity to return for a meal at The Union Hotel in Occidental. The food is wonderful and the service is even better. These days I travel over 1,800 miles to get there and Barbara always makes me and my family feel at home.

I remember having Sunday dinner with my family as a child at the Union. Now, many years later,I regularly select to take my family back to the Union for great Italian food in a warm,friendly welcoming environment. Our favorites are their pizza, minestrone soup,clam chowder, chicken pot pie. The bakery is such cozy and welcoming morning hangout for the little... More

We just love this place!! Our family was seated in the dining room and a young woman was playing the piano the whole time we were there. It was so inviting. The food was amazing. It's the only place around you can get chicken cattatorie (my moms favorite). Barbara and Trurdy both come to our table to say hi to... More

For some reason we wanted to celebrate our Thanksgiving meal at the charming, old Union Hotel in Occidental. What's not to love about this place? Red and white checked tablecloths, candles stuck in Chianti bottles (just like college), piano music, great staff, and just a general feeling of joy. Huge family parties streamed in for hours. This is obviously a... More

We have been going to the Union Hotel in Occidental for the last 25 years and it's our first choice to celebrate an occasion. Occidental is this funky little ex-lumber town from the late 1800's that is 20 minutes from nowhere. It will take a good 15 minutes to walk the entire town. The Union Hotel was built in the... More

If you want a local place that has been around in Occidental for 100+ years, this is it! Restaurant had friendly servers. Excellent clam chowder. I did not like the flavor of my entree (other members in my party really liked their entrees). The owner found out and deducted the entree from my bill as well as gave me a... More

Once again we chose the Union Hotel for my Husband's birthday with friends. We began the day at Northwood Golf Course. We traveled the short ride down to Occidental and began in the historic Bar with drinks. We moved to the dining room and enjoyed the family style dinner. We always start with Garlic Bread; it is a huge portion... More

I'm not sure if it was because of the time of day(1:30) we went but the server seemed less than thrilled to be there. The food was good and I would give it another try. The bathrooms need attention for sure, they are older and smelled really bad.
