Glenn's is a real treat. Located in a college town, filled with beer and burgers, Glenn's stands out with great steak and fish. The trout was perfect. The atmosphere is warm, quiet and welcoming. Service is top notch.

We had excellent service. I like it when I go out to eat and never have to ask for a refill on my drink. My glass was never empty. The food is for those that like things a little spicy. The ribs I had were...More
