Phone #: 530-272-8080. Downtown Grass Valley location. Our local paper had a nice writeup on this restaurant so we tried it today. It was amazing, fall off the bones ribs and really good burgers. Staff was very pleasant and friendly, surroundings were comfortable.

I think they closed

This place was terrible. I live in town and I believe they closed a few months ago. The food was not fresh and I ate there a couple of years ago and then again a few months back. It was one of those restaurants that tourists go to, because the locals know it's bad. If it's still open...save... read more

We had the burgers. There was really nothing that stood out. . Nothing really special. Nothing that made us want to return.

My husband and I have been looking for an average priced American Bar & Grill since we moved out here from Texas 8 months ago. The service was Fantastic, the inside atmosphere was fun and the outside patio was really spread out, clean and the sun/shade was optional. The clientele appropriate and based on what we experienced we will definitely... More

Good food in a pub setting. Service was great. Barbecue their specialty, had a smoked salmon salad that was fantastic. My daughter loved the ribs. By the way the photo is not of this restaurant!

Food was decent, drinks were fairly reasonably priced. Charged extra for a take-out meal, which was odd. Lots of TVs for watching Monday Night Football.

Our family dropped in here for a late lunch after visiting the Empire Mine, and were very disappointed. The service was slow, the food was mediocre, the beer was flat (and even misspelled on the wall posting). I do not recommend the place at all.
