Residents Rave about our food
Fabulous Food, Locally-Sourced
Our creative culinary team is passionate about food. Whenever possible, our chefs use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients to prepare delicious, healthy dishes. We gather herbs from our garden, visit farmers markets for our vegetables, purchase locally-raised beef, and buy lobsters and other fresh seafood from local fishermen. And with selections ranging from chef-inspired creations to simple, healthy fare, you’ll be delighted by the many choices.
A resident-run dining committee and comment cards give our community a strong voice in what and how dishes are prepared. Family recipes and new ideas are always welcome. You’ll be proud to invite friends and family home for dinner.
At Thornton Oaks, not only is the food delicious, but dining feels like home, only with fresh table linen, menus, waitstaff and a spacious atrium-style dining room.
Multiple generations give our menu high marks. In fact, children report a particular fondness for the fresh fruit and chicken fingers at “Grandma and Grampy’s restaurant.” In warm weather, residents and their guests enjoy dining on our garden patio.
The Thornton Oaks culinary team is also happy to cater family gatherings and parties for residents and local organizations.
