I just hosted a very successful cocktail party and rehearsal dinner at the Union Hotel Occidental. We gathered in the courtyard to enjoy drinks and appetizers before moving into the Bocce Ballroom for a lovely dinner. We choose a family style menu. We all loved sampling the various entrees. The setting was spectacular especially the redbud tree in full bloom... More

The bread, the salad, the homemade minestrone, the salami and cheese...are you hungry yet? All this before the meal even arrives. And what a meal!! The freshest ingredients prepared with artistry and served in a former stage coach stop from the 1870's. Our table was festooned with beautiful fresh flowers and candles and smiles from the friendly attentive staff. There... More

I have been going to the Union Hotel for over 50 years. It is now my grandkids favorite restaurant when they come to visit my wife and I. How can you not love the Union Hotel? Great food at a great price in the most welcoming atmosphere.

Visited this hotel with friends who had been there before and wanted us to try it. A great place for supper. The food was plentiful and tasty. The fresh bread, soup and pasta were good. Nice atmosphere and friendly servers. Excellent value for the money. Will come back next time we are in town.

I've been going to the Union Hotel for over 60 years. My parents would stop of dinner & drinks years ago & it hasn't changed in all those years. Great calamari, bread, pasta & biscotti

My brother had visited this restaurant many times since the early 1970's and kept suggesting that we visit it. He always rated it as the best restaurant for "family style" Italian food. Upon my retirement at the end of 2013, we finally had the opportunity to visit the area and we decided to take him up on his suggestion. Much... More

Went on a motorcycle ride with a group and stopped for lunch at the Union Hotel. The staff was very friendly and easily accommodated our 20 or so diners. The food was very good with the fresh warm bread on the table and the minestrone soup was out of this world. I had a grilled chicken sandwich that was fine... More

Real good , low price comfort food. The place packs them in every night we were there. A lot of family, because they serve platters of food.We ordered from the al carte menu and my wife and I could not eat our entire meal, but it did make a great lunch. Staff very friendly, place is noise, but a happy... More

very comforting inside or outside dining. Barbara's (owner) daughter is a masterful piano player during dinner. Also has an old time bar. Also checkered table coverings & candleabras everywhere. The outside garden seating is very nice. Food is rich, so don't eat too many of the yummy appetizers & bread. Great bruchettas.
