This Week at the Herdic House
Blue Plate Special: Wednesday, August 16
Join us tonight as we watch the Little League parade stroll through our front yard—and enjoy a delicious Misty Mountain Farm cheeseburger served on a housemade kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, onion and a side of macaroni and cheese. And for an extra couple bucks, add sauteed wild chanterelles and local shiitakes to your burger! For kids (old and young) we’ll be grilling Cow-A-Hen Farm hot dogs with a side of macaroni and cheese as well.
Please note: because the parade is heading right down Fourth St., getting to the Herdic House may be a little more complex than usual this evening. Parking north of Fourth and walking across the parade route is one option, as are walking and biking down. But if you’re having trouble navigating your way to us, just give us a call and we’ll help guide you in: 570.322.0165…
Every Thursday–Happy Hours: 5-7 pm
Join us at the Herdic bar from 5-7 for a new Happy Hour twist: two for the price of one Herdic cocktails and Woodbridge wines by the glass
Chanterelles, wild and free: Friday, August 18
The mushrooms gods are smiling broadly this year, and turning up pounds and pounds of wild and delicious treats. Join us Friday as we celebrate the lovely chanterelle, and also as we celebrate our favorite Daisy, who would have had her 98th birthday this week. Over 30 years, in her plethora of roles as Herdic pastry chef, mother, grandmother, babysitter, dishwasher, cleaner upper and general woman-of-the-century, Daisy taught us all a lot about sacrifice, family and great dessert. To celebrate, we’ll be giving away Dessert on Daisy all night on August 18—her peach custard pie made with Eck Orchard peaches and lots of love…
- Hannah’s wildcrafted chanterelle cocktail
- Cream of chanterelle sopu with prosciutto and tarragon
- Sourdough crostini grilled with chanterelle ragout and black diamond cheese from Yellow Spring Farm, finished with basil microgreens
- Roasted halibut with seared chanterelles and a parsley-dill coulis, served over crisp potatoes Anna
- FREE slices of Daisy’s peach custard pie
Late Night for Little League?! August 17-19 and August 23-26
It’s that time of year again, when Williamsporters and our international guests both sometimes find themselves staying late at the ballpark, and searching for a good meal late in the evening. Last year we inaugurated our Little League Late Night menu, available until 11:30 pm and featuring a selection of items from both our regular dining menu and our lounge menu. This year we’re back for more! We’ll be serving our full menu until 9:30 pm nightly, and then we’ll transition to Late Night fare until 11:30 pm. Stop in for a delicious meal at the Herdic—no matter the hour!

Join us for First Friday, as we welcome our May artist Theresa Crowley Spitler to the Herdic House. Ms. Spitler’s vibrant pastels will grace our lounge for the month of May, with an opening from 6-8 pm on May 5.

The Herdic House is among the finest examples of Italian Villa architecture in the state, and guests are welcome to tour the restaurant. Its distinctive features include ornate plaster moldings and arches, and a mahogany stairway that curves three floors to a cupola. The ornate first floor mouldings and the acanthus-leafed fluted columns on the porches are original to the building, and the intriguing three-story chandelier has captivated many visitors. The bar, in the rear of the building, was created from the witness stand of the demolished county courthouse, and the fan was taken from the same building.
