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.

Go hungry. All dinners come with minestrone soup, salad, marinated kidney beans, pasta, your entrée. After all that I do not remember any dessert. This was the first time eating there in 22 years. Nothing has changed. It is still worth the drive which is very scenic and a great place to go after a day of wine tasting.

We recently got married in Occidental. We had a most amazing a beautiful ceremony at the Grove in Occidental. What a magical place. The ceremony was held two minutes outside of Occidental. (operated by the Owners of the Union Hotel). Barbara is fabulous to work with. It was truly a dream wedding. Our reception followed at the Union Hotel Restaraunt.... More

When looking at the prices on the menu, one might think it's an expensive meal. However, the amount of food included more than justifies the cost. Tons of food - fresh breadsticks, soup, salad, antipasto and main course. Soups were among the highlights...outstanding minestrone with large chunks of carrots, squash, celery in a rich tomato broth, and creamy, thick clam... More

I went out of my way to have lunch at the Union Hotel and it was everything my friend recommended. We were seated on the patio as it was such a nice day, and found the service and food to be first rate. I had the combo pizza while my friend had the chicken pot pie. Either one would have... More

I've been going to the Union Hotel for over forty years, and I've always loved the food, atmosphere and warm, professional service. This last weekend I was reminded what a special place it is. I was in the area to celebrate my daughter's 25th Birthday with guests (nine in our party all weekend), and couldn't have pulled off the weekend... More

Bruschetta is a must order item to begin your dining experience at the Union Hotel. The warm bread sticks and fresh warm French bread was delicious with the balsamic vinegar and olive oil was wonderful. The salad has a sweat raspberry vinaigrette dressing . The minestrone soup is the best soup we have ever tasted. The 16 oz. rib eye... More

Very, very cool old building in the heart of Occidental! The food here fantastic, and the staff is very nice and polite. I had the bruschetta for an appetizer and ravioli for the main course. I even had the pleasure of meeting Barbra (the owner) during my meal and was extremely heartened by her warmth and hospitality. I can't recommend... More
