We were passing thru Santa Rosa so we just had to stop at Guy's spot for lunch.Not crowded, seated promptly.They provided some complimentary foccacia bread and olive oil which was tasty.Our entrees were good but nothing special and the garlic not overwhelming.The manager was very attentive to our needs.I would definitely recommend this a a solid if not spectacular lunch...

Visited here tonight while on a wine trip to the area. After we were seated and handed a menu the hostess left. For 20 minutes waiters and waitresses walked by our table and would not wait on us. I finally said to my husband let's just go and we closed up our menus. With that a waiter came over and... More

We had our dogs and the staff let us have the patio all to ourselves which worked out really well. Our server was also bartending which kept him running but he was very attentive. Excellent craft mixed drinks and a lot of menu options. We had a blackberry dacquiri, Cajun chicken pasta and bacon wrapped shrimp with an excellent chipotle... More

Three couples dined here, and we were all first timers with 4 of us coming from the east coast. Our food sampling included the elk, cheese dip, garlic soup, house salad, wings, shrimp scampi, Cajun chicken fettuccini, shrimp and hotlines, and Caesar salad. Everybody was totally pleased and there were no waiter conversations about Guy Fieri. I personally sampled the... More

I think you need to take reviews in restaurants in Northern California by locals in context (since I was a local for a long time). There is so much quality food there and knowledge about good food, the people are not patient with average food or service. I went there to celebrate my 35th wedding anniversary. We were seated immediately... More

Wanted to try this for some time. I had the Shrimp Scampi and my wife had the cobb salad. They were both very good. The shrimp was excellent and there were a lot. The spaghetti was very good but not special. I expected more of a garlic hit but it was on the bread and really good, but the spaghetti... More

Went to this restaurant because of Guy on Diner's, drive-ins and dives. The caesar salad was good with dressing that was not overpowering. The burger basher burger was fantastic and was so high I ate it with a knife and fork. The garlic fries were not very good because the salt and garlic was too strong and unevenly distributed. My...
