Three generations of serving Rutland

Sit in the bar, reservations recommends but often not needed. A local establishment that serves friends and family, good food in a relaxed comfortable setting.

I meet with my girlfriends from high school once a month at the Palms. Because I am on a special diet, I cannot eat the pizza or lovely bread. They are amazingly accommodating with whatever I ask. Yummy!

I never had maple cannolis or maple cheesecake...but I did now. Wow! Delicious and different! The food is delicious, the manager cares about the service and your delight in sampling the local cuisine. Great place to go...

Time stood still in the late 50's when you walk into the Palms. Grandma's dining room with great Italian favorite comfort food . We had veal parm, it was real veal, good size portions and plenty of pasta. Service was real good, great neighborhood place. Great family food.
