Service was great, but the food was average. The fried chicken was overcooked and dry, and the kids meal rib was a bit tough and overcooked. The grilled cheese was good, and no complaints about the kids meal burger. Overall, an average meal, but the service/server was fast and friendly.

This is a nice restaurant in a small place called Juliana. The red house is an oasis, and you get presicely what you'd expect: great burgers served with a friendly smile. Thanks.

We stopped in on a very crowded New Year's day, put our name on the waiting list, and waited. Didn't hear our name so we inquired... she had written down Kelly instead of Kevin. ?? We were just wanting a little something so we ordered the chicken pot pie. Our order delivered almost immediately as the pies are already cooked-it... More

Great service;;large portions;;good food;;right price Julian has many attractions. An active gold mine tour that could be shaky for youngsters since it is a real mine and requires a bit of climbing and they do shut off the lights to show what dark can be. There are many antique store and collectable stores well worth the time. A horse and... More

I would say that this is your average American roadhouse type of place. Very friendly staff and the menu had lots to choose from. We had some burgers and onion rings. They were average. Maybe we should have tried the chicken pot pie that everyone is talking about? We would go back if we come through town again.
