My family and I (and friends) have been coming to Woolgrowers for over 32 years. It serves Basque food family style. Every dish is unique and delicious. You cannot visit Bakersfield without going to Woolgrowers. In fact, this may be a good reason to visit Bakersfield. A great Bakersfield tradition. Must try the sole, the shrimp scampi or the ox...

Having reservations was nice to be seated as you walk in the door. My husband had the veal, it was great. I ordered the shrimp scampi which was the best I had ever tasted. Our birthday friend and his wife had the steak. It was so big and coked to perfection. Of course the set up is always fantastic. Our... More

Love this place for the food. The history, for the coming home to see the usual faces in the patrons and the staff. Same quality. As much quantity as you want.

I love all the food. The Filet is corn feed from Kansas which is the way I like it. This is my top 10 favorite restaurants in the country.

This place is well known with Annette Funacello frequenting when she was in good health. Could use some remodel updates, but the best one of it's kind in Bakersfield.

We went here twice for lunch- Monday was spare ribs day (baked, not barbecued, but really good). Thursday was garlic chicken day (fried, also really good). The set up includes soup, green salad, tomato salad (super good), sourdough bread, and baked beans. The second time we wised up and only ordered one main course and one set up. We still... More

This was my first time to try a Basque restaurant, and although my lamb chops were a bit too well done for my taste, it was a delightful dining experience. You need to have a big appetite when you arrive because there is a lot of food. This was also my first time to try pickled tongue…that was different!! My... More
