New restaurant, banquet center opens in Preble County

A new 7,200-square-foot full-service restaurant and banquet center opened Tuesday in Preble County.

Reflections@pmg Restaurant, Banquet Center and Event Center is located at 3377 U.S. 35 East, about two-and-a-half miles west of West Alexandria, next door to the Robert L. Crooks Funeral Center on the grounds of Preble Memory Gardens. It is owned by Dan and Caralynn Appenzeller of Brookville, co-owners of the funeral home and memory gardens.

The restaurant opened with 20 employees, but more are expected to be hired as banquet and special events are booked, Dan Appenzeller said. Reflections@pmg is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday and serves brunch on Sundays.

A ribbon-cutting and dedication for the new business was held Tuesday morning.

Through March 21, the restaurant will offer a half-off lunch special for dine-in orders, and dine-in dinners will be buy-one-get-the-second-dinner-at-half-price. Those eating Sunday brunch will get 10 percent off.

The new center seats 100-120 in the restaurant, 40 in a private dining area, and the event center accommodates up to 140 people for wedding receptions, seminars, reunions, or other events.

The menu includes steaks and barbecue ribs, and a daily special will be served. The restaurant has been approved for a full liquor license and expects to begin serving soon, Appenzeller said.

The restaurant’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For more information, call (937) 839-4500.
