Warmth emanates from both the decor and the staff at Inglenook Restaurant. Owner Rod Brubacher and his wife Pam designed the newly remodeled restaurant interior, with multiple dining nooks painted in warm, inviting colors that are complemented by contemporary art and mellow background music. They also added a cozy bar and an event room that seats 30 diners. Rod himself is often on hand to greet guests and welcome regulars back by their name and probably their favorite wine or entree.
As guests take in the traditional, tranquil vibe, they choose from a creative menu that merges classic and modern tastes. Shifting weekend specials and adjustments for dietary qualms, including gluten allergies, enable diners to experiment around the meal mainstays. Rod and his wait team amble past tables to suggest wine pairings for various entrees, which include meat and seafood plates such as pecan-encrusted salmon and rack of elk.
