=Mark's Menu Collection

These menus are a part of my collection which has taken years to compile. Most are very old and were transcribed long before restaurants had their own websites. Current availability of serch engines and the fact that most establishments have their own online presence may have rendered these obsolete, but hey, what am I supposed to do with them?. Consider this a historical archive!

What the heck, print them out, and if the place is still open, see if they'll let you order off the old menu and pay decade old prices!


Menus change on a day to day basis, and restaurants come and go. I make no guarantee that these menus are current, or that the establishments are even still in business.

If I find a restaurant has closed, I will indicate this with an asterisk (*)

If an establishment has a website with more current information, forward it to me and I'll add it to my copy of the menu to direct people to that site.

Hopefully someday I'll find someone to fund quarterly meals at all of thse fine restaurants so I can keep the menus more current! Travel expenses and lodging would be required. Anyone willing to sponsor this endeavor should contact me immediately so I can provide an address to which payment can be mailed... :-)

If any of the establishments represented here object to the free publicity, or simply want to correct or update their menus, just let me know. Please don't sue me...

Actually, you ought to give me free food!

If you got to this message by clicking on the "DISCLAIMER" link from one of the menus in my collection, whap on the "Back " key to return to that menu.
