Excellent food served fast and hot!

Went to the outlets and wanted to eat nearby. This was a hidden gem. Had the crab cakes which were mostly crab and not filler. The green salad was delicious and the fettuccini was bold and flavorful. The carrot cake was to die for! The service was okay - the waiter forgot a lot. Still, If I lived... read more

This is a nice place with some good food, but nothing to go "wow" about. We would consider it to be an average steak house; average steak, average prices.

Once again we took friends to Tahoe Joe's in Vacaville. The steaks were excellent and the service was exemplary. I truly wish we had one in the LA area.

Good food, nice staff, always an all around great experience every time we go. Fun decor, too. It's nice to be in a unique restaurant that makes you feel "transported" from strip mall, chain dining.

We called in here while visiting the Outlet Malls. The interior is spacious and beautifully decorated although the seating was uncomfortable. The greeter was clearly bored to see us and had no energy to make us feel welcomed. The food was so average I could barely be bothered eating it. Good serving size though.

My wife and I remembered this restaurant years ago...loved it then...and decided we'd like to go there again for our 40th Anniversary. BIG MISTAKE!! I ordered the Prime Rib while my wife ordered Joe's Famous 14 oz. steak. For $27.99 for each dish, I expected excellence and was served "meh"... I tried a piece of my wife's steak...I've made better... More

We had lunch there twice recently. The food was delicious, especially the Alaska halibut special. The BBQ chicken salad was great and huge (enough to share). The desserts were wonderful also. Service was very friendly but could have been more attentive; I had to go looking for our server.

Ate with family. Ordered steaks and cesar salads. The fish smell was powerful but we tried it anyway. Our mouths tasted like old fish. We asked the waitress to change out the salads. She brought us five more again smelling of fish. Manager watched didnt intervene or apologize. Will not return.

We had lunch at this eatery couple of times while shopping at Vacaville outlet. We tried Ponderosa Sirloin, Bacon Wrapped Bourbon Shrimp and Sierra Mountain Ribs. They all tasted very good. Sourdough bread was fresh. Service was good too. Food portion was perfect. Highly recommend this eatery. P.S: for Ponderosa Sirloin, you can substitute French fries with salad
