About Us

As you see it today, evolved from a long history that began over a half-century ago. Originally opened by William and Hilda D'Amico in 1925, it was first known as Glenwood Gardens. It was re-christened Gasper's Spa in 1937 when Gasper Turlo purchased the restaurant. The restaurant changed hands again in 1954 with the new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Ryan, who renamed it Poor Richard's. Poor Richard's received a distinguished reputation under the Ryans by offering a sumptuous buffet that delighted diners from near and far.

GLENWOOD OAKS RIB & CHOP HOUSE reflects a cozy, intimate, casual, but elegant lifestyle with stunning architectural treatments and suburb interior decor, GLENWOOD OAKS RIB & CHOP HOUSE's non-pretentious atmosphere is achieved through a flowing residential design, a home-away-from-home where the owner hosts guests nightly in an elegant and sophisticated environment. Stringent standards of excellence in service, food presentation, and quality ingredients, married with delicious innovative cuisine concepts, complete the dining experience.
