Juicy steak/wine dinner!

Hunter is our go to restaurant for a special occasion. We order the filet Mignon steak dinner with the tasty salad bar they bring to you. You get a choice of potato, rice, or veggies for a side. The fresh veggies are perfectly steamed. The homemade squaw bread is delicious. Only veggie we were... read more

We've been seeing the sign for this restaurant for quite a while and wondered how it would be. This is Restaurant Week in San Diego County and seeing it on the list, we thought what a great opportunity to give it a try. Are we glad we did. The atmosphere was cozy and the food delicious. Prices are very reasonable.... More

We had the three course meal and it was well enjoyed. It was a more mature crowd but the food was still good and they accommodated the kids well. I would eat here for the set menu price but I am not sure about the regular prices.

We visited Oceanside for the first time in August and we were looking for a good place to eat. There were five of us in our party.

I've seen new ownership, and new staff but the interior remains the same. Dark, clubby, friendly, great value. Mostly. We go for lunch and also for dinner. I've noticed a problem with their Ribeye and no longer order that. Their prime rib is very good, though the portions are nowhere nearly as generous as Coco Palms, but the quality is... More

We were looking for a good steakhouse to eat nearby and discuss strategies for the next business day. Found this on a GPS search and it worked out just fine. Close by good food, good environment to talk without creating a nuisance in a private meeting. They even offered a few complete dinner packages to choose from at great prices.... More

ALWAYS LOVE THIS PLACE - SUNDAY BRUNCH IN THE BAR!! Jen treats you like a 'Family Member', just about everyone in there is a 'Regular' - everyone knows everyone - Great Food (especially the Prime Rib, Spinach Salad, Muffins/Bread) & Excellent Bloody Mary's, Mimosas,etc - HUNTERS ROCKS!! :)

I'm willing to fly 1000 miles to eat here! When ever I visit California I have to stop and eat here! Steaks are great and always cooked to order, friendly service with a smile, and my drink never got dry. I especially loved the table side salad.
