A restaurant that had been a pie company, that is what I was told Painter’s Restaurant used to be. This interesting venue was recommended to me by someone I met at a meeting. Since I was close by I decided to try it for lunch.
The paved, parking lot had two handicapped (van) accessible spaces as close as possible to the stone walkway and double-door entrance. Once inside, I found two steps up to the dining area. Upon questioning, I found out (and saw) that there is a ramp just inside the entrance (to the left) that goes to the same place.
Seating was interesting. A collection of seating options, from booths, high and low tables and chairs as well as a very large, full height bar look as though they were salvaged from a variety of other eating establishments. Walls are brick, flooring is wood plank, and artwork abounds. There was ample space between all seating. The tables are covered with brown paper and crayons are there for one’s entertainment. Water served in mason jars, with a large bottle of water left on the table is a nice touch.
After making a food choice from the eclectic menu, I had time to really look around. This was a much larger place than I originally thought. There is a really large, lounge area, couches, chairs, a huge screen and plenty of room for entertainment. Many nights have Happy Hour Music as well as Live Music (check the website for details). No steps are required to the lounge area if going there directly from the front entrance.
Two, very large, single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms, with baby-changing facilities, are located in a hallway behind the dining room.
There seems to be outdoor dining in warmer weather. I would be interested in checking it out during the summer. I imagine it is quite busy then. Almost forgot, my lunch was delicious!
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.paintersrestaurant.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go!”
