My husband and I have property nearby. We have been going to the Chief for 20 years. The food is consistently delicious. We love the nachos, wraps, Italian sub I can go on and on. Just make sure you save room for dessert.

We eat at Chief's a lot. Today I had the melted turkey sandwich and it was terrific! The service was a little slow today but the food is definitely worth it. Unfortunately I had no room for dessert today. They had a fresh baked strawberry rhubarb pie that I was looking forward to eating! If it's still there tomorrow, I'm... More

This place has a wonderful home town atmosphere with framed sets of postcards of the town's past, friendly service, great food, and wonderful bakery items. For a small establishment, it has a wide variety of menu items, a host of specials, and we seldom leave without taking home dessert.

The Boston Creme Pie was fabulous. The burger and sweet potato fries were done to perfection. Many good things on the menu.

It looks like the restaurant has been spruced up a bit. The service was very good and sometimes with a group that can be a problem. Breakfast food was... More
