  • Breakfast potatoes with peppers and onions
  • Honey-baked ham
  • Chicken Francaise

Onondaga County’s COVID protocols remain in place, so masks are required indoors unless seated to eat or drink – including for photos with Santa. 

Since seating is family style, guests may be sitting with another party. Those planning to attend with a large party not reserved under the same name should contact [email protected] to arrange to sit together
