First time for the wife and I to grab a drink and a quick bite to eat at Ernie's. Hostess was very somewhat condescending in explaining to my wife and I that we were not at the "hostess station" to be seated. It was our first visit and she made sure to point that out about 5 times, we are... More

We went here right before the recent PGA tournament mainly to see what the golf course and clubhouse looked like. We ended up staying for lunch and went back again a few weeks later because we enjoyed the food and ambience so much. All the appetizers, salads and sandwiches we had were top notch. The Kobe burgers were an especially... More

We visited Ernie's several times during our stay in PGA West. We loved the patio. The views are beautiful. The food is excellent and the staff very helpful. They have an outstanding Asian salad with mandarin oranges and ginger dressing. Every dish we tried was excellent. Awesome drinks especially the Mojito's. If you are in the area this is one... More

I had the best chicken lettuce wraps. I enjoyed them so much that I am taking the time to post. Also had some entertaining conversation with people at the bar.
