Our Famous Cook-Off’s

This is one of the fan favorites that is held each Saturday during the month of February.  The LGWC hosts a friendly competition among our local restaurants. Each weekend they are given a menu item for us to serve anonymously to the crowd:  Chili, BBQ, Chowder and Wings!  For a small fee, you become the judge and are given a ticket.  Once you taste all of what we have to offer (usually a minimum of 12 different items), you then chose your favorite and cast your vote!!  The restaurants love the friendly competition and the crowd enjoys the tasty treats. This event is generally a sell-out and served til’ gone!  Make sure to get there early for your spot in line!
