Miss Bellows Falls Diner has been around since before I was born. They serve a great diner meal at affordable prices. The seating is limited, but worth the wait. It's legendary in Southern Vermont.
This Knights of Columbus is nothing like its other location in Chicopee. This site is small and simple. It can only accommodate about 100 people. The people there are usually nice. I've attended several functions there.
The American Legion is a simple, small banquet hall and bar. The kitchen is great for cooking, but the rest of the place is not set up for large parties. It's also dark in there. Members get a better rate for rental.
The Oaks is a beautiful place inside that allows for larger crowds. We attended a comedy show there last year and had a good time. The food they served for the event was appetizers only. The prices were good and the servers were attentive.
The Dante Club has a small, plain banquet facility that can accommodate about 100 people or so. It is a comfortable place that allows you to relax and enjoy the event. The rental price is reasonable if you are a member.
The Polish Club has 2 different rental sites. The outdoor site accommodates many people, while the indoor site can comfortably hold about 100 people. I've attended parties in both areas. The drink prices are very reasonable. The place is nothing fancy, but the relaxed atmosphere adds to the enjoyment.
We've had great food at Take Five over the years. The service is always excellent and we love the salad bar. The con....the reserved seating for functions is small and they served us soup in their famous crock but never told us it was fish soup. Weren't we all surprised when we took a bite.
