History of Gates Restaurant & Bar

Beautiful 19th century wrought iron gates lead you into this airy restaurant with Mediterranean checked table cloths, oversized terra-cotta planters and wonderful oversized paintings. Large windows overlook the outside garden dining.

The menu offers a variety of creative appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrees and burgers with a European-Asian flair. Specials include seafood and homemade ravioli. Children's menu offered.

The large murals on the walls are created by Janet Picard. Visit her website and find out more!

 

The big oak bar is ruled by "Patrick the Irishman", who has won awards for pouring  the best Guinness. This is a wonderful room for a casual meal.

"Tequila Mockingbird", featuring Mexican cuisine and Bistro Bonne Nuit, featuring French cuisine are sister eateries located adjacent on Forest Street.
