Stone House Dinner Thursday September 15th, 2022

The food at Quivey's Grove is as authentic as the decor.  Preparing the wholesome food of our forebears requires sweet butter, fresh potatoes, and heavy cream.  We do our own baking and cooking from scratch.  To maintain freshness we prepare limited quantities and sometimes can't anticipate the popularity of an item.  Enjoy your meal.
