Though the idea of providing strong customer service isn’t new, the original Glass was devoted to giving each customer the best possible product for the best value from opening day. This commitment continues to this day.

“I think that one major draw for us is that we have such large dining rooms,” Roger Glass, Marion’s son, said. “People can bring in large groups and spread out. I think that is really helping us right now too.”

In recent times, Hawley said they’ve seen business go from about two-thirds
