We all loved our food! Especially the seafood nachos! We got in and sat down with a reservation. We all would go back again for sure!

Enjoy the hot vegetable salad with grilled chicken on it. Of course they charge extra for the grilled chicken. Their rolls are good. No a regular place to go too but we do go there for lunch every once in awhile.

The restaurant was very clean, we had an enjoyable dining experience. The California Dreaming Salad is amazing!! I recommend the house dressing. Delicious! We also love the crescent rolls! My 8 year old ordered the chicken tenders from the kid's menu. They were also delicious!...More

Hosted a group of 27, and the restaurant was very accommodating. It is excellent for large groups as they have a private dining room available. They also offer the "early bird" menu. I highly recommend the prime rib, as it is always delicious.

We have been here for the onion loaf several times. This was great, the chili and ribs very good. We went during a slow time, with little staff but the service was fine.

Hi Mike, Yes, we do offer a $13.95 early evening menu daily (excluding holidays) from 4-6pm. It's a 'you need to know about it' kind of menu, so ask for it the next time you join us! Looking forward to serving you soon.

My fiance and I are thinking of planning a destination wedding and this place was recommended for a reception. Does anyone know if there are any nice views in the private dining area?
