I enjoyed walking around the town circle and everytime we would come out of one shop to another, we would hear the loud music coming from "JoAnn's". They played a variety of music and we loved it!!

It took the1 hour to get our dinner ready! Food was not very good either! It has improved from 2 years ago. Some dishes were better than the others....

Eating outside in front of the stage and live band is fun and comfortable. Even inside you can see all the happenings outside from the bar. Excellent sandwiches, one of the best melt in your mouth, Chicken Tenders I ever had and fresh country salads

The food was great and I'm still amazed how well the waitresses handled all the customers! They worked their butts off! Crowd was having a great... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Sat outside in the "bar" area for a beer & ice tea. There was a guy onstage getting himself ready to play & sing. However that bar area only serves BBQ food and if you're not in the mood you'll need to go inside to eat. We went inside to order different food since... More

We were greeted with a smile the moment we walked in. Menu was simple, food was fair, and the service was good.

This is in the center of town and always has the most out of town people. It has been a while sense we have gone to eat here but all the times we have been the food has been sub-par. Of all the restaurants on the hill this is not the best but the most busy due to location. The... More

After a long drive from Los Angeles to Idyllwild, on a rainy night, we arrived hungry and not inclined to cook a meal in our cabin. As usual in this little town on Saturday after 9:00 PM, the streets were deserted. Jo'An’s was still open, and we decided to stop in for a bite. We weren’t expecting much – maybe... More
