When you walk in and look at the menu prices you think "upscale" restaurant. But when you are served you are brought back to a mediocre level. It wasn't bad, but the ambiance and setting gives you the impression this is a bit more than just an average restaurant. My wife and I didn't have extravagant entrees, but our total... More

The good part: nice patio setting, accepted to serve us dinner very late at night, server was nice and professional, great local wine list at very moderate prices. The not so great: did not have my first two wine selections, food was bland

To start, we loved the atmosphere in the outdoor garden, quaint but romantic. The food was excellent, except the escargot had tarrogon which we do not prefer in our escargot. Other than that the trout, caesar salad, and dessert was commendable. Cherry, our server, was fantastic in all aspects from handling my wife's special needs to providing great service.

This hotel is perfect for history lovers. Continously in opetation since 1859, you can magine yourself as a time traveler. It even has a resident ghost. Pioneers dealt with warm weather because they had to, I on the other hand prefer my hotels to have a working AC. Attempting relief by cracking a window open failed due to sweltering temperatures...

The dishes are gormet quality, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is great with inside and outside seating options.

We eat here when ever we can. Great food. Wonderful surroundings. Lots of History of Jamstown on the walls. Fabulous proprietor. Not to be missed. Plan early for a period room.

We stayed overnight in Jamestown enroute to Yosemite National Park. We couldn't get a room as they were fully booked but we went for drinks and dinner. The hotel is very quirky and was built back in the Gold Rush time. The bar is the old saloon bar and we were welcomed by the manager. We sat at the bar... More

What a nice"old (1959 good rush)" hotel & restaurant. Enthusiastic proprietor and kind personnel. We got here on our way from Yosemite to SFO by accident and really recommend it for a stay and a traditional diner. These chefs know how to cook with fresh (own garden growth) ingredients. Btw they serve an outstandingly choice of wines.
