Just a local SJ guy

Good food at a moderate price. Clean restaurant with pretty decent service. Parking can be a challenge at times. Restrooms are extremely nice and clean.

This the a family own restaurant that has been here for a very long time. The food is good and you do get large portions so go hungry. I like going for lunch.

My wife and I have been going to Country Inn since it was a El Paseo de Saratoga nearly 40 years ago. The wait staff has always been pleasant and friendly. The food has rarely disappointed and when it did the problem was immediately corrected. My favorites have been the omelets. Two negatives: you still need to pay at the... More

I eat here pretty frequently for breakfast and lunch. I have never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh and tasty. The prices are very reasonable and the service is solid. I recommend it for family meals or girlfriend lunches. Kids enjoy it too.

Nestled in the Almaden Valley in southern San Jose is a nice family restaurant with large portions, reasonable prices, friendly service, and very good-tasting food. It is most popular for breakfast but the menu is very satisfactory for lunch and dinner as well.

Hubby and I have breakfast at one of the Holder's Country Inns every time we pass through the area. Service is always friendly and prompt, we arrive at off times so the wait is never long but I've heard that it can be at peak times. I've had almost everything on the menu and all are delicious. Hubby even gets... More

They have a really good breakfast. What else can I say about it? Why do I have to write any more about the really good breakfast?

We love the manager, Sam, and the warmth of the staff. They make you feel like you're friends, not just customers. The food is good and the selections have a great variety of choices. It is very convenient for us to get to, especially when it's a last minute decision.

The staff here are very nice. It can get quite busy on a Sat or Sun morning, so we tend to get there early. The food is always so delicious. My kids love the chocolate pancakes.
