Thirty years of business does not happen without the right owners and employees to back it up.  Co-owner Hermanson believes the success of the restaurant not only comes with great food and service, but with personal relationships with the guests that have been there.  And this has happened since the restaurant’s inception, and continues to this day.

“It is a warm, friendly, cozy environment where our guests can relax and be ‘EATER-TAINED,’” said Hermanson.  “My favorite saying to new employees is, ‘A happy guest happens from the moment they walk in the front door and receive a warm welcome from our counter staff, until they walk out after great service, and a great lunch or dinner.’”

Make sure you build your appetite, save the date, and don’t forget to attend Spaghetti Eddie’s 30th anniversary celebration on Monday, October 5 from 3:30-8 p.m.
