Who We Are

Bistro on the Glen proudly honors a legacy of good food, good friends. The legacy started over 40 years ago…


In the late 1970’s the small town diner was known as JA’s Café. In September 2002, Bob and Carol Budish became owners and by 2003, the diner was named “The Glen Café” for the City of Glendale. Many have called The Glen Café “the North Shore’s best kept secret” to enjoy tasty quality dinners such as a rack of ribs, steaks, seafood, chops, pastas, stews and more. In 2017 The Glen Café added new entrees to the menu, live Jazz music, and a friendly wine bar. In 2019 The Glen Café decor evolved. Bob and Carol continued the legacy with Bistro on the Glen. You can still find the original “G” in the Bistro on the Glen logo.


Bistro on the Glen serves many craft Cocktails, Draft beers, wines, appetizers, homemade soups, a large assortment of foods inspired by world travel and daily dinner specials.


Enjoy the menu including the great breakfast and lunch options customers have enjoyed for many years. Bob, Carol, and the Bistro on the Glen team welcome you!

Our Team

Bob Budish

Bob served the community as a Glendale police officer until 2005 when he left the department to meet the growing demands of the restaurant.

Carol Budish

Having started as a waitress when she was only fifteen years old, it was a logical evolution for Carol, along with her husband Bob, to take over the business and make it distinctly their own.
