My friend and I went for dinner, he ordered the ribs. Red flag: option for 2 full slabs of ribs, who does that? He only ordered one full slab, and when I tell you that we fully understood why you had a choice of 1 or 2 rib (s) because it looked like it came out of a squirrel! The... More

Hi Audrey, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed in your dining experience, our baby back ribs top the list as a guest favorite. The danish pork ribs we serve are slow cooked so the meat is fall-off-the-bone tender. We are committed to creating consistent, high-quality dining experiences for our guests and will be sure to share your concerns with... More

There are California Dreaming restaurants in several southern cities but this us one of my favorites. I was seated quickly and my waitress was at my table instantly. I ordered my drink and a cup of she crab soup while I decided on dinner. She arrived shortly with both and I ordered my dinner. The she crab soup is outstanding!... More

Always a hit in my opinion, superb service, especially at the bar for happy hour! Do not go without at least having a house salad!

Had a great meal! The seafood nachos appetizer was excellent!!!! The house salad was very good, better than expected. The Tuscan chicken wings were great as a meal instead of an appetizer. Definitely enjoyed it!

The whole atmosphere was intimate, the service was incredible, even though we came within 2 hours of closing. The drinks and food were spectacular and we paid $100 for 2 four-course meals. Will definitely go back.

We all had the marinated sirloin. It was different but good than what we're used to in a marinade. It's on the sweet side. The sirloin was so tender and cooked exactly the way each of us ordered. Baked potato excellent as well as the crescent rolls. Going to try something else next time. Lots of raves regarding the salads... More

Four of us. Wait time was short on a Friday night. Great waiter; very knowledgeable and accommodating. Other couple had the prime rib and they cleaned their plates. My wife and I had the California Dreaming chef salad with croissants; excellent choice. Get the salads with the hot honey musard-bacon dressing. The croissants are excellent. I saved room for dessert;... More

We really enjoyed the croissants. I had the salmon, which was loaded with rosemary. I scraped as much off as I could, as it was a bit more than I cared for. The red skinned mashed potatoes were good. Service was friendly but a bit slow. The parking lot absolutely sucks if you have a larger vehicle. If you drive... More

Many years ago we used to really enjoy the restaurant and then it took a bit of a dive in service and food quality. We hadn't been to one for awhile, but decided to take a chance and stop in as it was located right off the main street and we were hungry from a long day on the road.... More
