Hungry? Grab a bite at The Aspinwall Grille - My favorites are the burgers and the strawberry salad, but you can order everything from a great Reuban Sandwich to a full course fabulous dinner......and of course....dessert. Most of our Saturday customers know that Jeri and Debbie split a burger every Saturday (but what Jeri doesn't know, is that Debbie eats a WHOLE burger all by herself on Wednesdays!)!
