The employees are living and working at Brookwood. It is a community for adults with disabilities. So charming and nice. I would... read more

Went there just after Christmas with a young relative who had never heard of the place or been there. Had a great lunch, we enjoyed visiting the gift shop and the garden center. Food was great, service excellent.

Large restaurant seating area, looks out on their nursery. A little pricey with entrees from $12 to $16. Lunch choices were varied, so something for everyone; we had a grilled shrimp on salad, Atlantic salmon and veggies on pita, and I had the hamburger. The burger was a 5, the fries, 3-4; fries were a mix of fried sweet potato... More

This community of functional adults with disabilities is just amazing. The store and café are wonderful and there is so much to see. I went at Christmas time and there must of been over 10 trees decorated with ornaments you can purchase. My favorite was the greenhouse. These people just grow the most beautiful plants.

Food was good as was the service and I commend this organization for the job they are doing. I found the food to be small potions for the price paid and the atmosphere a bit over the top for the menu offered.

Visited for lunch with an associate for business lunch. Beautiful and impressive location the country and at the heart of the Brookwood Community. Great meal, won't disappoint if you are taking business partners for lunch. Or your Grandmom. Very pleasant and cultured, nearby a nursery.
