This place has great food . Great steak sandwiches, french fries, fantastic pizza and unbelieveable salads. Very nice atmosphere and a very comfortable place for a great meal. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

The food was nothing special. We used gift cards from Costco, and the owner will not agree to add gratuities to the gift card. We still have some money left on the gift card, but will not go there again.

Because this restaurant is a few blocks from my house and has a pleasant outdoor seating area, I've given it a number of chances to serve me a decent meal (lunch and dinner). Today was the restaurant's last chance and they blew it! Service is...More

My final day in California so we went here for brunch before heading off to the airport. It's a self serve buffet style and done very very well. The eggs Benedict were particularly good...and I'm a huge fan of American crispy bacon!!
