Gaylen’s was delicious. We did not have the Thanksgiving Dinner option because we were visiting the area. Food was just perfect. Service was great and friendly. Dessert so good perfect portions!

This place has a varied menu, with a good range of price points. I had the cauliflower steaks served with kale and nutty rice. My husband had a tasty scrod sandwich. The atmosphere was lively, warm and welcoming. We would go back.
