Grandma's Pies & Restaurant

Opened in 1976 by Joseph Danaher, Grandma’s quickly grew into a community tradition for holiday pies, great meals, and unique atmosphere. Grandma’s and Thanksgiving quickly became synonymous, as evidenced by the lines of people wanting to bring delicious pies home for the holiday that stretched out our doors each year. In 2008, long time managers David Houle and Ron Raylinsky bought the business and kept the traditions of excellent meals for any occasion, friendly service and the best pies - Just like Grandma used to make! The tradition conditions as Grandma's Pies & Restaurant has been reopened in August of 2018 under the new ownership of Alex Morales.


Granny's recipes are prepared on the premises with old-fashioned skill to provide a difference that you can taste. Homemade dinners, soups, quiches and hand-made hamburger patties of select ground beef on home baked rolls are but a few of the menu items of this unique restaurant.

From our "World Famous" Cream of Turkey Soup to our 46 varieties of home baked pies to celebrating every holiday with festive decorations and coordinating uniforms, you'll feel right at home when you sit down to any meal with our family.


Thank you for letting us serve you and our community for these past 42 years,

and here's to many, many more!
