This historic gathering place pairs enduring appeal with modern socializing.

This generously-filled plate of Chicken Saltimbocca, one of many changing menu features, puts a twist on the traditional preparation by swapping veal for poultry, then adding layers of flavor by topping it with ham and melted Swiss cheese—all puddled in an aromatic sauce. The restaurant cooperates with local farms in an effort to secure humanely raised proteins that are free from antibiotics and growth hormones. Entrées run a full selection of chicken, beef, and seafood dishes, which include gluten-free and vegetarian options.


Dinner just isn’t complete without tasting a luscious house-made dessert like Carrot Cake. Get the Recipe »


Need a big, warm hug—on the inside? Rich and creamy Lobster Bisque will be happy to oblige. Order a cup or go big with a bowl. Like all their soups, this house specialty is made from scratch.


Welcoming patrons since 1750, history is infused throughout this rustic destination that remains adorned with original architectural appointments. Of course, the attitude has been updated over the centuries, with happy hour at the bar offered six days a week. The fully stocked tavern features seasonally rotating craft beers from their own Red Lion Brewery. A signature amber ale and IPA are always on tap.


With a mission of providing an “upscale atmosphere for the working person’s wallet,” and offering a diverse menu that spans casual appetizers to fine-dining entrees—including an array of flame-grilled burgers with chicken and portabella mushroom options—McCoole’s attracts an enthusiastic all-ages crowd. Catch live music Friday and Saturday nights and seasonally on the outdoor patio area.     

Private catering for boutique weddings, parties, and corporate functions is available next door at McCoole’s Arts & Events Place.
