Another beautiful meal to celebrate our anniversary! Server Patricia was fabulous as usual and her wine pairing suggestions were right on. I had the Pasta alla Norma, one of my favorites and hubby had the veal chop, which he said was the best piece of meal he's had in years!

About the restaurant
Ernie’s Food & Spirits
The crossroads of cultivation, connection, and creativity. We strive to connect our craft of creating unique, locally inspired, and seasonally curated food with emotionally invested service.
The relationships we have created with local farmers, cultivators, brewers, and distillers, share the core ideals of our emotional investment. We are proud of our centralized location with seven major highways or interstate routes within twenty minutes of our front door. As we conceived our identity, we became fond of connecting our guests to the highest quality food and beverage our area had to offer. We have diligently partnered with local farmers to raise our own plots of fruits and vegetables, cheese makers to provide farmstead cheese, distillers who utilize the bounty around us, and brewers that strive to create the highest quality crafted product as we do in our restaurant. We look forward to connecting you to our ideals.

Thank you,
The Ernie's Family

As an anniversary dinner, the bar was high. Everything was delicious, plated well and appealing. The wine list is huge and the server, helped point out great choices. Don’t get me wrong it’s not cheap, but worth it. Excellent..

I’ve been to Maydoon at least 5 times and last night I went with my family to celebrate a special occasion. The service is always great and last night was even better. It was my family’s first time eating Persian food and they loved it. They particularly liked the chicken and combo platter. I love the Maydoon bowl with falafel. I recommend this restaurant to anyone.
