A appetizing smell, the cute cat, and the homey settings drew me in. I ordered the basic burger with fries and a beer. What an awful experience: - the burger has a weird smell I never experienced before, the closest I can describe the smell without trying to be dramatic is that it was a smell and an aftertaste of...

So, I REALLY wanted to go here and nothing could spoil my experience. It was a glorious rainy morning in the beautiful forest and this was our first stop of an all-day Cali coast trip. The spot was JUST what I imagined, old, fun, cool peeps, good menu. We had breakfast and drinks. The service was great and the menu... More

A frequent spot for breakfast and dinner. For breakfast I like the Ducati - simple, fast and tasty. For dinner I prefer some of the less heavy options. They do a nice fish with pico de gallo on top. Obviously if you know anything about Alice's, it's packed beyond belief on the weekends. However - still a great place. One... More

Was told it was a big biker place but none were in site on a Thursday at lunch. Fries were underwhelming, but burger was juicy and flavorful. Bathrooms are outside around back of the gas station. Specials on the board looked very good, as did breakfast options. I would try again if in the area.

An outdoor breakfast on a sunny morning at Alice's Restaurant is one of the pleasures of being on vacation. The natural beauty is special - redwoods all around - but the local flavor is the attraction. This is a meeting spot of motorcycle and sports car enthusiasts. This is the place immortalized by Arlo Guthrie - so you can't get... More

We usually go for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner but this time we stopped by for dessert! Outstanding chocolate cake and the Mud Pie was good (nothing to a Mud Pie!). We always try to find time for Alice's.

Stopped at Alice's on a weekday morning drive down Skyline Dr. At 9 am it seemed to be just a few locals here for breakfast . Quick service. I had chicken fried steak & eggs with a biscuit. Good sized portion. Tasted very good. From the talk around the place, it sounds like they get really busy around noon for... More

Alices is a regular institution on Skyline Blvd. The staff is friendly the burgers are good as is the coffee. The real treat...the 'atmosphere' if the hundreds of motorcycles in the parking lot atop hiway 84 at skyline. They mostly go to the store, so there is usually plenty of car parking, and seating at alices, inside or out in... More

This is a great stopping point on a motorcycle or car ride on Skyline, most people come for the burgers, which are very good, and there is a large outdoor seating area in front with heaters so you can eat and watch the motorcycles and exotic cars come and go. There is also a back bar that most people don't... More

Alice's is famous for the eclectic mix of bikers, motorcycle riders and car lovers from all areas of the bay...flocking to hang on the deck of Alice's...the food is average. People watching is great and if you like bikers of all types...this is the place. Live music on Thursdays too. Can be a long wait in weekends but the surroundings... More
