my dad gene boyd managed the ariston in the 60’s. my mom,rose and older sister also worked there. my brothers and i also peeled potatoes and washed the glasses and silverware by hand as the dishwasher wasn’t able to. remember seeing a pic of a pie case with a table in front of it, that’s where i did my homework. i have pics of my parents at the ariston. there are so many wonderful childhood memories there. good luck and god bless
My wife and I had already eaten so we were only able to share a dessert, and WOW what a dessert! The main dining room was almost full yet Mr. and Mrs. Adam treated us like we were the only ones there. They have a special gift for hospitality. If you are traveling through Litchfield make sure you visit the Ariston Cafe for a memory waiting to be made!
Nick, great to see you and Demi this past weekend. As usual, a fantastic meal at the Ariston! I believe it is now almost 50 years that our family has been acquainted with your restaurant, and, I can truly say that every visit it a joy.
However, I must add that having duly considered your advice Friday night regarding “choice” versus “prime” tenderloin I must disagree. The “prime” tenderloin that we had Saturday night at our place (kudos to my brother for his excellent grilling skills) was gastronomically superior, both taste wise and texture wise, than our past experiences with “choice”. And, the difference was roundly recognized and appreciated by all in attendance!
If I don’t see you before Christmas/New Year’s, please accept my wishes that you have a wonderful holiday season. Thank you both for your friendship, fellowship, as well as great food and service through the years.
We were guests in 2015 and thank you for the wonderful hospitality.

We have been stopping here for many years on the way home from the Route 66 Car Show in Springfield, IL in September. Excellent food and excellent service – we love the ambiance here as well. We have spread the word to all our car friends to stop and enjoy the Ariston.
