Coming In For Christmas!
Think ahead...it's December. Every year you find it gets harder and harder to fit in the time to get together with friends, celebrate with extended family, or have a small office party during the height of Christmas week. Here's the perfect solution: the French Canadian Holiday Dinner Matinee, on Sun., Dec. 7th from 12:30 - 3:00pm.

Imagine ...experience the fine dining in French Canadian style. Mader's Restaurant caters, and does the dishes! Learn about French Canadian holiday traditions and be entertained without lifting a finger! Just make a reservation, either by phone or online. That's all you need to do. Since the Matinee is an afternoon event, it gives our guests the opportunity to travel in daylight and be home at an early hour.

Of course, there are four identical seatings, beginning at 4:30 pm on Dec. 6th, Dec. 7th, Dec. 13th and Dec. 14th if you would like to attend. Book early as seating is limited. LEARN MORE
