In addition to being a beautiful historical property in the Gold Rush town of Jamestown, the menu and food should MAKE history. We enjoy their lunches and their brunch; WOW! My personal favorite is the eggs florentine made with fresh spinach. The blueberry scores are fresh made and melt in your mouth. They make a mean Bloody Mary too.

The restaurant carries an abbreviated version of their standard menu and the food was really good. The wait staff was wonderful, attentive and very friendly. Catering to mostly locals was a good sign of their consistency and quality.

We were a party of five on a quiet Tuesday night in Dec. The best part of the evening was the welcome, where the gentleman made a point of mentioning that all their sauces were made from scratch. This turned out not to be so. When I asked for the tarragon to be left out of the escargots appetiser, the... More

This customer seemed unhappy about so many things, that I am not sure where to start. 1. While we do not say that sauces are made from scratch, we do state that our entree sauces are prepared to order, using our freshly grown herbs that are raised on the restaurant property. Our escargot are purchased from France and come in... More

We stumbled into restaurant on our way home from shopping in Sonora. Decided to eat at the bar. Bartender was friendly and welcoming. We each had a hamburger to order. Tasty and large enough to take half home. Hand cut fries so good. Would return for lunch and dinner. Great find in our back yard.

When it's warm outside the have wonderful outdoor eating. We often make a meal out of ordering several appetizers. We love their Potato Skins and Calimari. Order a side salad and it's a great meal for two.

The food will never let you down. The menu has excellent variety and the quality is excellent. Always fresh tasting with their own herbs grown on site. A nice evening dining on the patio, great food, wine, and best cheesecake in the world. Excellent staff sees to everything.

The food, service and ambience all make for a pleasurable experience. You are taken back in time to another era of gold mining and steam railroads.

The proprietor Stephen Wiley is charming & he takes great pride in running this gold rush era hotel/restaurant passed down to him. The meats are all choice cuts, the veggies locally grown, & the herbs are from Stephen's herb garden. In addition to an excellent meal this is one of very few restaurants that prepares flaming desserts at your table.... More
