Burgers were good, although they took quite a while. Has a weird vibe, 50's music playing loudly but rustic decor all around. Walk to bathroom is straight out of a Nightmare on Elm St. movie, never seen anything like it. Smoky in the restaurant when...More

Go early to avoid the inevitable rush! The menu is vast and everything is delicious! It's a very cozy place so be prepared to take your food outside and enjoy it out there!

Great burger, fun casual atmosphere. My daughter and I each had the cheese burger with fries. We were starving and this definitely hit the spot.

The food at Penelope's is great! Each item is cooked to order. We loved the vegan garden burger and elk burger.

I am not sure. But it's basically burgers and fries. They have beef, bison, elk and turkey burgers. Fries, sweet potato fries and onion rings. It's a small place with a pretty small menu, but it's very good!
