Pretty darn good, would return.

Ordered a variety of types of food. Nachos, bruschetta , pulled pork, burgers. We had a large group , most everyone enjoyed the meal. Ribs were claimed to be the best , but my husband didn't think so . Service was awesome by Tyler and Max. It was not too crowded at the time, so get there before... read more

BBQ chicken was so dry it was not even edible. Great for people, car and bike watching. I would return but won't order any type of BBQ again.

While traversing the mountain range south of Palo Alto we were not optimistic of finding a place for breakfast given the snakelike route. Out of the early morning mist we saw this gem. Rustic for sure but the quality and service of a five star eatery. Worth a trying ascent and thrilling descent.

This rating is for the pulled pork and brisket sandwiches. The pork was like it came out of a blender and had no texture at all. The brisket was tough and chewy. Our server was awesome and replaced one of our meals with a cheese burger after one person said they weren't happy with their brisket. He said the burger... More

Drive up through the redwoods was beautiful, no wait seating outside (1:30pm) we all ordered burgers. They were frozen pre fab burgers. Ordered medium came out well. Buns were dry. Service was very slow and our total time here was about 1 1/2 hours for 3 burgers. Path to bathroom and surrounding area was dirty. Would not recommend.

We returned to Alice's in Woodside, Ca. In July 2015 to find the food disappointing from a visit a year ago. We ordered the same meals which was what brought us back. The Ceaser salad with prawns and a Norton Blue cheese burger. The salad looked and tasted like it came out of a bag, the prawns were greasy when... More

Alice's is good and fun if there are not too many bicyclists there when those of us who are in cars, on bicycles and/or passengers with friends. Alice's restaurant staff and Alice herself have always been friendly and helpful. Sometimes the food is so good, that I over eat because I don't want to leave any of these good meals.

A must for Arlo Guthrie fans and foodies, alike. We stopped for a late breakfast and were especially pleased with the huevos rancheros and Alice's Omelette. We're coffee snobs, so a better grade of coffee would've been nice. We weren't quite ready for beer but it looked like they had a nice selection of craft brews on tap!

The place was packed and it wasn't even lunch time yet. It's been at least 3yrs since my last visit and just like then there were lots of bikes! The wait time was at least 15 minutes. My friend Ed's first time here and we tried something new. He ordered Wagyu burger and I had the Bison burger and we... More
