We have been going to Monte Vista Inn for many years and that is because of the great service and excellent food. They treat you like family. What I like the most is how well they treat my parents. They always great them like family.

This is a great out-of-the-way place with a rustic atmosphere and great food. The regular menu is terrific, but the specials are, for me, the real draw. Especially when they have bison short ribs -- Yum! Sides are always cooked just right, and the dessert tray/pie selection is not to be believed. It's fun for a special occasion, too.

We took a family gathering to dinner at the Inn on a Saturday night which is risky at best. But our service was excellent and there's enough space between tables that we weren't sharing our conversation with the other guests. The old log structure has seen many years but still remains elegant. The owners pay attention to the small details... More

Service was OK except we we're never asked for a drink order so we had water. The food was not worth the wait. Overcooked and excessive sauce. I think its a local hangout in the lounge bar area. Keep going 10 miles south if you have the time.

Do yourself a favor and take 80 east for a short but lovely drive to Dutch Flat and Monte Vista Inn. Getting takeout today and as usual, warm and friendly staff and owners with a fire in fireplace. Oh yeah. Food is great as always. :)

From the rustic look both inside and out to a plate of home grown heirloom tomatoes with fresh mozzarella cheese, this place has definately got it going on in the right direction. Easy Hwy 80 access, friendly, warm owners and wait people, interesting menu with great prices. Try it ......you will like it!

The food here is good and good variety on the menu.The service was beyond bad.Thank God the busboy was around and saw to it that we were looked after because the waiter sure didn't.It is hard to believe anyone could be that bad.THis place has good food and a great atmosphere but I would have to say go somewhere else.

I have eaten here several times during the last year and never had a bad meal. Service has always been great. Menu selection is excellent. This is a "World Class Restaurant".

My wife and I stopped at the Monte Vista on a Saturday night at six PM, only to have tepid Sierra Nevada Pale Ales at the bar. The old building is very quaint, but the hostess lost our names and when we were seated we were not greeted and never saw a waitress. After ten minutes we decided to leave.... More

The Monte VIsta Inn is a charming restaurant with excellent food and service. It has a long heritage of serving travelers for over 60-70 years. The restaurant is always decorated with great care for each season or holiday. We've eaten here regularly for years, and the food is consistently very good. They bake their own home made pies and they... More
