WHAT, WHERE and WHEN is/are FOR DINNER, Grandma?


MD 2017 flyer–CLICK HERE for Mothers Day reservation and other information–See you with Mom!  Thanksgiving 2017 information available soon.

–PLEASE READ before making your reservation–THANK YOU!  Reservations taken on the half hour CURRENTLY between 11 AM and 730 PM inclusive for Mom’s big day.

–if you are interested in 11 AM please indicate in the event we open up that extra time.  We always take earlier reservations on Mothers Day and Thanksgiving.

If you are staying home and visiting with friends/ family, who in the world needs buffalo winging-its or Kentucky flayed somethingthatlookslikechicken, when I can have Tanglewood chicken!  And think about those delicious sides to go with it.  Just call or send a text message to get details.  Waits for pickups are usually short and we’d love to send something home with you.

Here is our NEW short video–please tell us what you think and feel free to refer it to others or provide them with the link:      CLICK HERE for the video link

If you are a new customer or if you need a basic summary of food and reservations information

(201612, under revision, suggestions welcome)

For any reservation request via email, here is a list of what to tell us for the quickest help ( please keep in mind the email may not be fast enough if your reservation is coming up soon– use texting or a call instead — our main phone works for both, text or voice; email is fine if there is time but it rarely gets read right before or during the time we are open, sorry):
 1- How many seats do you need (including kid boosters)?
 2- How many HIGH chairs are needed (don't include in #1)
 3- What is your preferred time of arrival, on the half hour?
 4- Detail any flexibility you have if we cannot seat you as preferred (most important on HOLIDAYS when space is most in demand)
 5- VERY HELPFUL >a phone number we can use that accepts TEXTS, the fastest way to offer a seating to you
6- Sounds silly to mention, but please don't forget to give us your full name.
Be sure to watch for our confirmation via text (or email if time permits), especially for larger parties, at busy times and for Holidays.
Calls, emails & text messages are always welcome--Text is best if time is short. Also, calls can be tough during Open Hours due to background noise.  We'll need your email address & full billing address if there is a Holiday Deposit involved.  Again, remember email takes time so use texting where time is short.
