Dining Options:

Here are a few of our favorites, with the nearest places at the top of the list, because who wants to drive once you’re here?  We’ll warn you that we prefer locally-owned places serving home-cooked food at a reasonable price.  If we can find whole grains and gluten free options, we’re even happier.
