Charmingly quaint and comfortable, the Purple Onion is a different type of food establishment whose ethos is to provide our customers with a healthy, fresh alternative to take out food. Our open-style, sauté-based cooking line demystifies the mystique of the kitchen allowing you to watch as your meal is prepared right before your eyes. Family friendly and moderately priced, the Purple Onion is the destination of choice in a town with dining options aplenty.
