This is an excellent restaurant in Bakersfield. Know that you have to be very hungry, because it is a lot of food. The entrées include many previous courses, including soup, salad, bread, beans, tongue... So when your entree arrives, you are already full. My suggestion is to order just one entree for two people. The service is fast and good.... More

They are part of the strong Basque culture in Bakersfield. Woolgrowers allows you to select your main course at a private table. You get all the classic Basque sides, with your entree. A must try.

From the family style service, home made breads, bustling atmosphere, and prompt attention of the staff, great meal. The soup is excellent-add the beans and some of the hot salsa. I had sole w lemon butter, mostly butter !, that was just perfect. The family style sides are plentiful and delicious too. Place was a real treat. Looking forward to... More

I have lived here all of my life and eaten Basque food other places, but no one compares to Woolgrowers. Casual atmosphere, good service and reasonable prices for more food than you could ever eat. Woolgrowers is one our go to place for large groups as they easily accommodate big groups/family dinners.

Can't go wrong, the atmosphere is a little out dated but they make up for it with the food and service. Great play.

The service was good, the atmosphere was just so-so, not a fancy date place, more casual. Alcoholic drinks were ok. The food, well, honestly I've tasted 3 different dinners here, and to me the meat was either, dry, tough, or funny-tasting, but ALL OF THE SIDE DISHES....!!!!!... They were good! The sides all looked plain/average tasting but actually stood out... More

For starters the salsa is always delicious.Actually every bit of the "SET UP" is very tasty. I prefer not to have the pickled tongue.Even though a set up is plenty to stuff a grown man ,i can't help but to order the ever soooo tasty shrimp scampi
