Our first time in Idyllwild, and since there are several restaurant around we decided to try this one. It was busy when we arrived. Staff were pleasant and friendly. I got club sandwich and my husband got a Hawaiian BBQ burger. The food took a little bit longer than usual, our French fries were really good, but the rest were... More

Back to Jo'An's, this time with an exchange student from the Czech Republic. She wanted barbecue, so this was the place. BBQ is available only im der biergarten, with a totally different menu than what they have inside. And the `Q menu has only ribs, chicken, bratwurst, cheeseburger or a foot-long hot dog. Take your pick. Anna prefers chicken, so... More

We both had the tuna melt and it was one of the better ones we have had. My companion had a Cadillac margarita made to her specifics and the bartender followed directions to the T. I will definitely go back when I am in Idyllwild again.

It was my first restaurant meal in Idyllwild. I went at lunch time and ordered a pastrami sandwich with fries and paid $10.75 with tax. The food was OK, not great. The service was, likewise, OK, not great. I will most likely eat somewhere else next time I am in Idyllwild.

We were welcomed warmly when we arrived and it was a very slow part of the evening. They were full staffed but we were kind of ignored. Once our waitress did pay us any attention, she announced that they had an 'All you can eat Fish and Chips Dinner'. I quickly ordered that! My Husband ordered the largest cut of... More

Monte Cristo was good - enough for two. I wasn't impressed wit veggie burger - sort of soggy. Went for lunch - I understand there is live music weekend nights

Very bizarre experience! dirty restrooms, poorly organized staff, we're unable to answer simple questions, carded my 51 year old friend for a beer which never arrived to the table, vegetarian menu only allowed at lunch but not for dinner, staff unwelcoming and disinterested in their customers. We walked out and went across the street to the Gastronome restaurant which was... More

Friendly, attentive service. Decent menu choices. Good burgers. Plain food, decent prices. Clean and well-maintained. Did not seem very busy the whole weekend we were in town.
