I have been going to the Gathering Place for 32 years, since they opened & it remains one of my favorite places to eat. The food is outstanding! I love the French Toast too.

Nice family atmosphere. Ate lunch with some friends and could easily talk and be heard. Great variety, made choosing interesting. Prices very reasonable.

This place will take you back in time to your grandmother's kitchen and dining room where the while family gathered for big meals. The hardwood floors and wood ceiling beams are an excellent change from the stoic chain restaurants. Sun poured through the lace shears on the windows with cascading floral curtains. The tables were solid wood with comfy Amish like chairs. And the menu always diverse. I'll have to go back at least 17 more times to try the other items I couldn't this trip. I finally decided on the chilli omelet with the creamiest hot coco I've ever tasted. My husband ordered a spinach mushroom burrito. The servings were big but not so big you felt too stuffed to walk back to the car. The quality of the food is above average. The omelet wasn't overcooked like some restaurants. It was fluffy, fresh and rich tasting. This is by far the most charming and welcoming place I've been. I can't believe it took this long to finally stop in.
