Fairgrounds Cafe is a good place to eat, especially for lunch. My husband and had dinner there. There is always live music on Saturday evenings. All in all, good value.

This place is simple, good food. If you're looking for something to fill you stomach, try the hot turkey or hot roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and a veggie side. Very reasonable prices.

Great service and wonderful homemade food. Just delicious. Bring your appetite; portions are large. Be prepared to wait for a table if you visit on a weekend. They close around 2pm. Interesting decor, including a sulky and a handmade wood carousel.
