I enjoyed a first-rate prime rib dinner, there, 2 days ago.....with baked potato....absolutely tender and delicious. Service was fast and courteous. My first visit, and, will definitely return next year when I will be staying in Salinas for the Monterey Jazz Festival.

Had the pork ribs, plus a beer, and still paid $30. The athmosphere is quite nice but nothing reallly to get excited about. I feel it's a bit overrated in Tripadvisor

Exploring your own backyard can hold fun times for frolicking and local flavor. Salinas you say? Well, I say so. I took a half day of vacation to travel to Salinas from San Jose, CA to attend the Salinas Pro Bull Riding event. The day however started out with a little fun shopping at the Boot Barn. Great store for... More

Stopped in for lunch while we were in Salinas and we were surprised by how delicious everything was. There were only two other groups in the restaurant at the time, as we were there on a week day a little after noon. We both got open face sandwiches (the prime rib and skirt steak) and they were wonderful. I highly... More

Went out with a customer and employees...third time there, first for lunch. The place is cozy, intimate, and warm. As for atmosphere and vibe, they have it at teh right spot on the dial. The service is also very attentive, actually too attentive. Waiters and bus boys were constantly hovering, interrupting, and interfering with what was obviously a business meal.... More

This is a great place. Dark wooden booths, seasoned wait staff, great all-american food. It really feels like an upscale steak house from the forties or fifties like the ones that still exist in New York or Chicago. Not what i was expecting in Salinas at all. I've only had lunch there and it was delicious and the service was... More

We found this place by chance and loved it. The service was good, the food was delicious and the interior was quite upscale. We would definately eat there again.

An old home town favorite, taken over a couple of years ago by the greatest gal in town, Dawn Magri. She completely renovated the place (much needed) to the clean, tasteful, well run place it is today. As a creature of habit, they see me walk in & already start cooking my skirt steak sandwich, medium w/salsa & fries ~... More

Enjoyed many meals here. They had a hard start when first taking it over a couple years ago but have it on track now as a great place to dine in Salinas. the short ribs are absolutely my favorite but the steak or burger is a close second. They always have a seafood or pasta selection as well. Wait staff... More

We were on our way from Los Angeles to Half Moon Bay with friends and looked for restaurants on the car's GPS and this came up, so we decided to try it. The Deco decor was wonderful, they had a really nice selection of local California wines, the server was really pleasant, and the food was great. All meals at... More
