I’ve been dining at La Gare for over 35 years and it never disappoints! Excellent food and attentive and service. They still include soup and salad with every entree and prices are extremely reasonable. Love la Gare!

Jackie owns this superb restaurant in Railroad Square. Mark is a veteran waiter who can advise you on wines et al. Referred to as The Best Restaurant in Town for a reason. Top an excellent meal off with special bourbon butter pecan ice cream.
