Open for Dine-In Service

To all our dedicated customers, thanks so much for being there for us and showing such generosity.

Since the shut down started March 20th, we have been here for you through the thick of it, and we thank you for all the support and love. We couldn’t do it without you.

Since June 3, we are returning, cautiously, to seated service in our main dining room and lounge. We will also continue our curbside pick up. This week, we will not have Friday lunch or Sunday take-home specials.

Our seated dinner service will run Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday 5 to 8:30 pm; Friday and Saturday 5 to 9:30 p.m. Here’s the dinner menu. We will also be offering happy hour in the lounge, Wednesday through Friday and Sundays 5 to 7 pm with food specials and half-price wine and beer. Here’s the happy hour menu.

Here are the steps we’re taking to ensure the safety of our guests and employees:

  • Guests will be spaced 6 ft apart according to recommended guidelines
  • Hand sanitizer stations at the entrance and in each restroom
  • Arm door openers on all doors
  • All team members will have their temperatures checked and will be asked a series of screening questions when they report to work
  • Customers can have their temperatures checked as well
  • Team members will be required to wear a cloth mask and gloves during service
  • Hands will be sanitized between each trip to a table by service staff
  • Single-use menus & condiments
  • No-contact payment options
  • Tableware and glassware to be delivered as a party is seated.
  • Regular disinfection on surfaces and door handles multiple times per hour.

We will continue our curbside pick up for our dedicated customers.

Together we will succeed!

Help Yourself. Help Our Employees. Help Us.

You need to eat. So help yourself to our updated menu for carry-out. This menu includes single servings and banquet-at-home (feed the family; freeze for later).

This is a difficult time for all businesses. Restaurants are especially hard hit. I’m a proud, hard-working person. And it’s difficult to say this: But I worry for the survival of my business. So I’m asking you to help us.

Please…order from us.  We’re in the kitchen, ready to prepare delicious food for you and your family. Call early. Call often.

Please…buy gift-certificates. We all look forward to that day when our doors re-open and the crowds gather again. Set aside some gift certificates for that day. Your friends and loved ones are still celebrating birthdays and other occasions. Give them the Gift of LoRusso’s.

Please…tip generously. When you pick up that carryout order please help our employees by tipping them well. Our efforts to keep them employed can’t completely offset their losses. Every dollar counts for wage-earners who are suffering right now.

When we opened our doors in 1986, we dreamt of creating a family restaurant. That dream has come true. We view our employees and customers as family, and we think that feeling is mutual. This crisis threatens our family.

With great humility, gratitude and love, we encourage you to do what you can to help our family weather this storm.

Rich and Terri LoRusso



We remain open for carryout and dine-in (including catering/banquet-sized dishes). Here’s the menu…



Make a Reservation

We want to ensure we have a table when you arrive, please let us know if there are any special requests for your reservation.




For 30 years we have been the choice to take out of towners, celebrate a milestone or just get away from it all and recharge the batteries. Let us take you on a culinary trip you will not soon forget.
