With views of blooming rose bushes and a gazebo set back on eight acres, the wrap-around porch at Rose Hill Fine Food & Spirits affords a homey backyard vibe where summer flavors punctuate the menu.

“We have one of the biggest patios in the area,” states owner Sue Tomic. “Customers enjoy alfresco dining among the mature oak, maple and birch trees.”

Inside, this farmhouse-turned-restaurant has a cozy feel you would expect from a century home, with tables tucked in the corner for intimate dining, a row of bar seats for more lively conversation, and wood column dividers in the back of the restaurant that allow big families or large parties to sit together and enjoy more privacy in a comfortable restaurant setting.

Summer Fare
While the restaurant is known for its chicken paprikash, pork schnitzel, prime rib and burgers, lighter summer fare also abounds.

A twist on the classic pasta dish, the Summer Chicken Alfredo features summer’s bounty in the form of a squash medley and tarragon sauce. And the Bone-in Pork Chops are topped with grilled apricots and balsamic glaze.

“I like to showcase summer produce and herbs when they are in season, like adding fresh mango-pineapple salsa on top of our blackened tuna,” says Chef Petar Tomic, who has a strong classic European cooking foundation he learned from his father who was a chef in Europe. 

“We cut all of our meats in-house, bake our own bread, make our sauces and grind our own sausage.”

The menu also has an appreciable selection of seafood, including bacon-wrapped scallops and grilled salmon. Prime rib is served on Friday and Saturday nights.

To complement the menu, the restaurant has a sizable wine list. “We offer California wines that you cannot find anywhere else in town,” says Sue. 

“I like to find some unusual notes like a Sauvignon Blanc that does not have typical melon and peach flavors but rather pear nuances, and a Chardonnay that is buttery with a crème brulee finish.” 

Sue notes they also have five beers on tap and local bottled craft beers.

Private Parties 
Adjacent to the main dining room and outdoor wrap-around deck, a separate party room hosts parties. With private French doors, high, wood-beamed ceilings and expansive windows, the room has a sophisticated yet cozy feel.

The room can accommodate up to 80 people and has a separate bar area, making it an ideal venue for any special event, from bridal and baby showers to rehearsal dinners, anniversary parties and business meetings. 

“We can even host small weddings in the party room and have the ceremony in our outdoor gazebo,” says Sue. 

In addition to on-site catering, Rose Hill also can cater your event off-site. “We are catering graduation parties all summer long,” says Sue.
