Who says you can't go back home again. Every dining experience at the Union Hotel is like being home. Every patron is treated like family. Barb (one of the owners) is a goddess who makes everyone feel special. Gien, Barb’s daughter, is an all-star and...More

Quaint old time feel in a quaint old town. Menu was quite limited. We went for lunch. I had a burger that was big and tasty as far as burgers go. I would have preferred something else but choice was too limited, nothing else looked...More
