Dine with us

Dining at the Imperial Restaurant is a culinary and visual delight. The Imperial Restaurant food is deliciously outstanding and memorable for all of the right reasons and the 40 seat bar also offers a place to unwind after a long day of meetings.  There are over 200 seats inside and 50 covered outdoor seating on both Queen Street and Chestnut Streets for your enjoyment when the weather permits.

The artful and history inspired decor is both pleasing on the surface and enlightening when you look deeper.  Did you know that Abraham Lincoln gave a speech on the exact spot where our restaurant now stands or did you know that 4 other presidents were one on this historic site?  The site where the Imperial and Holiday Inn now stands is the oldest continuously operating hotel site in the United States. 

Our dedicated culinary staff, led by Aboubacar Kouyate (Chef Abou) brings local goodness to life with flavors from around the globe.  The Imperial is also dedication to offering vegan and gluten free diners option that they tell their friends about when the go home.
