The Dining Experience at Chartwell Kingsville in Kingsville

At Chartwell Kingsville, our dining experience is inspired by the rich and fertile farmland surrounding our small community. Our chef takes advantage of fresh, local ingredients wherever possible, such as ripe field tomatoes, tantalizing berries, and sweet corn. Those ingredients form the basis of delicious, nutritious meals, the starting point for an experience that we hope will exceed your expectations. Our daily feature menus are diversified and varied. You might enjoy beef tenderloin with sautéed mushrooms, roasted peppers, and a choice of baked or mashed potatoes for dinner, and a tomato-cucumber salad with an entrée of pierogies filled with Oktoberfest sausage for lunch.
