Open every day for dinner, and Wednesday to Sunday for lunch, this casual family restaurant offers a place for individuals or families to meet, enjoy a good meal at a reasonable cost; regular patrons frequently come back again the same week. The owners and the staff take pride in knowing their guests and remembering their food and drink preferences.
A “10514 Burger” is very popular, served on grilled rye with Swiss cheese, sautéed pastrami, house made slaw and Russian dressing with a side of house French fries. Chili, soups and salads are also offered for lunch. Customers repeatedly order chicken wings in three flavor and size choices, fish tacos, seven burger choices and the N.Y. strip steak for dinner. Quaker Hill Tavern is not open for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but leading up to the Holidays, Erin will create a special cocktail and Erick will make a dessert that recognizes Holiday traditions. To celebrate their 10 years in business, and to support worthy causes, Quaker Hill has also designated 10 Mondays: “Monday Matters,” and donates 10% of their gross sales to a worthy charity.
