For dinner we had the "special" - a combo of Tri-trip and BBQ Chicken breast, a deal at $13. Like all dinners it came with a salad (very good) or soup, a corn muffin, and a choice of 2 sides - we had Onion Rings (first rate), mixed veggies, and green beans (both very good). Service was a bit erratic,... More

The title says it all. Ooops, I forgot, good prices. All of us had the prime rib special. It was just down the street from our hotel and we were beat from traveling from winery to winery all day. It was a nice change.

Every time we drove by, we kept seeing lines out the door -- and now, we know why. Our group of five ordered several different breakfast entrees and shared freely with one another; everything we tried was great (and reasonably priced, to boot)!

Good diner offering a range of home cooked food. Was very busy at 12 noon such that we had to wait for a table - always a good sign. Service was attentive and menu choice was extensive. My partner had trout with vegetables which was OK and I had a Chicken Caesar sandwich which was delicious and very large -... More

It's unusual we have to write a poor report as we normally reserach where we visit - we didn't this time and had regrets, but we won't get personal or vindictive. This was within easy walking distance of our hotel (though being of lazy disposition on our first evening with jet lag we drove) and the promise of good old... More

We went here for dinner. Eboni was our waitress and she was wonderful. We had a bottle of Sonoma wine sold only to restaurants & hotels for $15. Very good Merlot. Prices were reasonable for the quantity and quality of food. The all you can eat fish fry was immensely enjoyed by my wife while I enjoyed the prime rib... More

The portions here are HUGE. I could eat only 1/3 of my hamburger, which was grilled to perfection. This is a fun place if you're into gigantic meals fit for a bear coming out of hibernation. The staff is very friendly.
