Outstanding restaurant. Service was top notch. The food was second to none. We met there for a mini family reunion. The steaks were delicious. We all tried the Kangaroo appetizer. Different but good.

Since 1861 The Union House Hotel has maintained a prominent position within Genesee Depot. At that time Patrick Lynch, a 35 year old Irish immigrant, first opened the doors of this establishment to village residents and local visitors. No doubt these initial patrons found the impressive new hostelry, built in the 19th century’s fashionable Greek Revival architectural style, to be to their liking. As the largest public building in Genesee Depot, The Union House with its second story ballroom also functioned as a social gathering place for area families. Due primarily to the influence of the Milwaukee and Mississippi Railroad, the settlement immediately thrived as an agricultural service center. Soon a grain elevator, woolen factory, general store, blacksmith shop, and post office joined with The Union House Hotel to comprise the major components of the local economy. While many of these local landmarks have succumbed to the ravages of time, The Union House continues to proudly serve as a tangible link to the community’s past. Today, diners have the unique opportunity to experience the same warm hospitality, delectable meal offerings, and courteous service that Patrick Lynch provided his customers in this setting over 125 years ago.
