Work Holiday Party

Had our office holiday party here this year. Food and service was good overall. I thought the prime rib could have been trimmed a bit more, and some of the fish dishes were a bit overcooked. Appetizers were very good as were the side dishes. We had a private room and private restroom. Restroom was... read more

I was driving Sunday morning through the eastern edge of Modesto and found this place to eat. ALL the cars ahead of me pulled in, I was a little worried I about the wait, but no one left and I got a seat right away at the counter. Good food, hot coffee and really nice patrons. Got some suggestions for... More

We have been getting their mesquite BBQ whole turkey for several years to take home for our family Thanksgiving dinner. We have also recommended it to many friends. Never again. As they say, one bad experience is all it takes. This year, the turkey was so overcooked it was not only chokingly dry but actually shriveled down to the point... More

I had dinner there with the book club tonight. The staff was very friendly. I ordered a Chef's Steak with baked potato and a dinner salad. I requested the steak to be cooked medium but received a steak which was medium-rare. The server took it back to be cooked a little longer and it tasted great! We all had a... More

I ate here tonite as part of a party of 4. It was prime rib (special) nite, and the food was good. Ample portions, tender & tasty prime rib at good price. Veggies (too much butter) and a baked potato included. My problem with this restaurant is twofold: 1) noisy and 2) maintenance issues. I ate here a few months... More

Really good food and great staff. The Salad Bar was Outstanding. I had the steak and prawns which was also fantastic. The pie is one of the best. Our waitress, Katie was great. I'll be back.

Wife and I took the 3 grandchildren there on a Friday evening. Arrived at 6, seated at 6:45, didn't know they took reservations. The waitress tried very hard to make up for the long wait, brought mini loaves of bread which the wife and kids promptly devoured along with drinks. So, by the time the meal arrived, they were full.... More
