We had lunch at the Fairground Inn, with eight people. We were seated quickly for a group of that size. All of our food was very tasty and the portions were great. My husband had the biggest meatball sub we've ever seen and he said it was very tasty. The atmosphere is also very pleasant. The prices were very good,... More

We had dinner here while traveling through the town. Everyone really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We went with the kids and they are also a kid friendly restaurant.
