Risen from the Ashes

After an arsonist shut down the golf course club house and Violi's upstairs they were finally able to reopen. The food and staff are very good with wonderful views of Hunter's golf course to enjoy even for this non golfer. The menu is extensive but we have never had a meal we did not enjoy. We... read more

I, don't want to mislead anyone, I, have on several occasions been to Violi's after attending a funeral. This was my first time eating there as a private customer! Of course, it was under such different circumstances. I, met my friend from high school, and we sat out on the deck! We both had a wonderful time and the food... More

My wife and I ate at Violi's with my sister and her husband on our recent visit to Connecticut. I wasn't expecting anything special since the restaurant is located near the club house of Hunter Golf Course. I thought it was just part of the golf course and would only serve burgers and other lunch items. It's actually independent from... More

Dined here for the first time the other night. The service was outstanding and the dinner was mouthwatering. I ordered the baked ziti, I can tell you this Fatboy walked away full. I was surprised the hotel is located on a golf course, however it's worth dining here and the prices are very reasonable. I will be dining here again... More

Recently rebuilt and now open for lunch or dinner. Dinner meals are excellent - even though a little higher price than surrounding restaurants. Good selection. Good service. View of the golf course is available from every table.

We have been here a couple of times and really like the golf course setting. We have never gotten a bad meal here but we've never gotten a great meal here either. The service depends on how busy they are, I would say it's just adequate.

We were at Violi's Tuesday evening 6/16/15. We are a group of folks who get together at a local restaurant monthly. We were excited to go to Violi's and support their reopening. It was an extremely disappointing evening. There were about 20 men - who may have been golfers there at the "19th hole". They were disgusting. They were so... More
