The ambiance of the Union Hotel during the holidays is not to be missed. Their decorations are a work of art. Each Christmas tree is completely different. My wife's favorite thing is the gingerbread stars hanging from the ceiling in the café.

Returning to our wedding spot five years later was as magical now as it was on our wedding day. We were headed to have dinner at the Union Hotel for our anniversary, as we do every year since we had our reception there. We decided to stop by The Grove where we held the wedding. To our surprise there was... More

Been going here since I was a small child, and it never fails to fill me up with classic Italian food! The historic building lends to the ambience, along with the REAL Taper candles in Chianti Bottles on your table! On the price range side with the average menu item being $22, BUT you get Bread, Salad,band the most AMAZING... More

The Gonellas have run union hotel long enough that there is still a ring in the sidewalk outside to tie up your horse ! Again you can meet 2 or 3 generations of the family when you visit. Geared to family style dinners with soup, salad, anti-pasti, bread,and ravioli plus your entrée choice. Typical Italian dishes, and some really fine... More

My husband and I come here whenever we are in town. This is a great, casual restaurant. The house salad is wonderful and the bruschetta is my favorite. I get it every time I visit! Now they have coupons for free bruschetta with purchase of an entrée, our waitress gave us one! The portions are HUGE so keep that in... More

I liked everything we had except my main course of Prwns and pasta which was very bland. I made mistake ordering seafood at an italian style restaurant. I think eggplant or chicken parmesan would have been better. Clam chowder was wonderful.

I have been telling my neighbors for a long time how great the Union Hotel is. We finally had an available evening for the four of us to go. They were not disappointed. As always, we were more than satisfied with the delicious food and had leftovers to bring home.

As a child, I ate here several times while on family vacations some 50 years ago. Eating here again brought back memories and created some new ones. Portions are huge, entrees come with minestrone soup, antipasto, and salad. All were tasty. The outdoor courtyard and grape arbor with real grapes was a nice upgrade. All in all a delightful dinner... More

After reading all of the reviews I can't believe the four of us got such bland dinners! The bread was wonderful and the clam chowder was a little different, but so good. But the entrees. #1 had spaghetti and meatballs but this was more like spag and meatloaf. Salty and weird. #2 had the pork etc filled ravioli. Chef Boy-ar-Dee... More
