We were a very large party (softball team), however, our servers were awesome. The Manager checked in with us a few times throughout our dinner. The food was average, some dishes were undercooked. The Management took care of the bad dishes. Our glasses were never...More

This is a small chain of restaurants located mainly in California's Central Valley and Central Coast. The food is consistently good and reasonably priced. Wait staff has always been attentive without hovering. I've never ordered something I didn't end up enjoying.

Excellent service and the food was really tasty! Homemade vegetable soup was the bomb. Rolls and garlic butter very good. Onion blossom, wow. Had a special going for a 10oz. Rib eye steak with all the fixins for 15.99.

Loved this restaurant. Lovely quality steaks, burgers, sandwiches, entrees. Great wine list. Comfortable with children and families yet still maintaining some finer dining qualities. The interior design is really fun done in western style yet still classy enough. Friendly and helpful staff.

I always eat in the bar. Good beans, but the rolls are only good is they are warm. For unknown reasons when the rolls cool they taste like metal or a chemical after taste. Steaks are only average in taste and quality. Potatoes are always...More

It think they do anything for birthdays. I believe I've asked before and they said they had nothing. Applebee's gives you a free ice cream sundae, and Famous Dave's in Fresno gives you a "Giant" ice cream sundae that is best... More
