Great staff and food. They serve some GF items. Just love the chocolate flourless cake with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. They also serve beer and wine.

I visited Turkey Red with my mom for lunch while recently visiting her in Palmer. We were seated immediately and the service was quick and friendly. I had the Asian chicken salad with some fennel tea, both were delicious. The bread that came with my salad was amazing. I will definitely visit again next time I am in Palmer.

Not far from the Palmer visitors center is Turkey Red. This was a lunch stop with unexpected great food and choice. Plenty of seating and great service we enjoyed our lunch. Great selection of cakes and cookies! for the sweet tooth.

This restaurant isn't on Happy Cow, but they were very vegan friendly. Of course, they have a lot of carne options but I was able to get the roasted butternut squash salad and a chocolate ganache dessert. I took it to go. The flavors were intense. The squash, onions, and mushrooms were perfectly caramelized and the lettuce mix was local.... More

The classiest restaurant in Palmer also boasts excellent Italian food. The spinach crespelle was outstanding! We ordered the appetizer portion, with a mixed green salad and hearty vegetable soup. All of it was very good, with complementary homemade bread. But next time, I'll order the dinner portion of the spinach crespelle. Relaxed, modern Italian atmosphere with excellent service. They also... More

My family of 8 decided to dine here. It is such a cute diner/bakery! All of their food looked abseloutly mouth watering! Just a heads up with the menu: *THERE IS AN AUTOMATIC 20% GRATUITY CHARGE FOR ALL ORDERS* That is pretty pricy. I believe waiters should EARN their tip. I don't want to be charged for lousy service!

The atmosphere and service is still very pleasant. The food was the special of the day: rock fish. It was absolutely perfect. I intended to go back there when I had a chance and I am glad I did.

This place is wonderful. Great Salmon special and Pasta with cream sauce. The bread is superb and by itself worth making the trip. If I lived near Palmer I'd be a regular. Also a decent wine list. Do yourself a favor and visit for dinner.

We went to Pyrah's Farm and picked some product for the week. We heading to what I call downtown area of Palmer to visit a gift shop. While we walked around we came across Turkey Red. We decided to stop in for an early dinner. WOW...what a huge surprise. We had a friendly gal named Tina and she brought us... More
