Service was awful!!! Waiting while waitress talked about personal life with clients, my food was cold. And not worth the price... should have walked out.!!!

This is a classic small town bar/restaurant -- lots of local color, fair to good bar food (a full menu), friendly service and a cool look and feel inside and out (at least two patio dining options). Worth a visit if you have no interest in either franchise food or hoity-toity dining.

Ate here once before and avoided it altogether this time. We waited forever to be waited on with flies dancing on the window sill above our table. After waiting nearly an hour for our food, we were about to leave when the plates were dumped at our table.

We had lunch and breakfast here on our recent three-day stay in Idyllwild. Food was good and prices reasonable. We'd eat here again on a future trip.

Stayed in Idyllwild for two months so I've tried many, if not all, of the restaurants. I ate here twice in that period of time. Breakfast and dinner. Both times this restaurant cured my appetite. All of the other restaurants are much better.

We stopped for the breakfast special and weren't disappointed. The staff was wonderful, the food good and the bill not too bad! All in all, we will return.

We stopped by for lunch on October 26. There was a band playing and we wanted to sit outside to enjoy the music and the weather. We went inside to see if we could be seated outside. Verge Wait person said to go ahead and sit anywhere outside. We found a place(several tables were empty) and waited for a server,... More

Stopped in for dinner and was seated in the main dining room. Restaurant has quite a few tables and people were enjoying the ambiance. Good people watching! After waiting about 5 minutes, no waitstaff. The young ladyhostess that had seated us happened to walk by and asked if anyone had approached us. We told her No. Well that little dynamo... More

Appetizers wings, and spinach dip were okay. The beer was tasty and the BBQ smelled good. Not really here for the food but the live music rather. The location doesn't get any better if you want to be in the mix of it......

We sat in the bar area and had a very nice waitress. We both ordered burgers and fries. The burgers were a good size. I would have liked them to be juicier but they were good I just put some salt on it and some more sauce.
