Great Sunday brunch!

Small place in old historic downtown Salida. Laid back atmosphere in old brick building with tin ceiling, servers are all young ladies with smiley faces and good attitudes, a mix of locals and visitors alike, good fresh fare, been several times, very consistently good!

Hoping for more for $30 when ordering two breakfasts, I left disappointed but understanding the name "Laughing Ladies". They were! The employees, that is. While we were neither seated nor offered much attention. Even ordering, when both of us were ready, was too much to handle. "Drinks only." Then after a while, and more employee/employee conversations, our orders were taken.... More

We moved to the area last year and have enjoyed our visits here for dinner, brunch and lunch. Today was the exception. The new kitchen should not take it as a personal afront when a patron cannot eat 90% of their new lunch menu with salsa, chili or likewise spiced topping additions. Our waitperson was clearly in the middle of... More

This restaurant recently changed hands. We wanted to visit and see the changes. Not a lot has changed. The menu was the same, servers the same and quality of food the same. Great meal, great service. We'll be back.

On a weeknight we enjoyed a late supper's relaitve quiet and attentive service. The food was OK - crispy polenta, crisp fries, creamy spinach, thick pork chops. Some dishes too spicy or garlicy for our tastes. Overall pleasant experience.

So for fifteen years I've enjoyed this place, never a bad experience. Now I'm having pains. If you look over my reviews I've been quite fortunate, I don't just write up the good ones, but it seems like my bad ones are few and far between. Thanks Be to Allah... So now that this place has changed hands I've been... More

Had a great dinner at Laughing Ladies - Outstanding (the best ever had) Spinach Salad with a Butter Poached Egg on top. Mmmmmm, the mingled flavors were wonderful and decadent. They have wonderful fish specials and wine too. Had the Gulf Shrimp Linguine and Tequila-Lime Grilled Chicken Breast. Everything was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was wonderful and had great...

We were a little nervous about returning to Laughing Ladies after the sale of the restaurant. Our fears were diminished after being warmly received by the same waitstaff we have known and enjoyed for years. The true test was the food and it passed with flying colors. Our favorite Nutty Goat Cheese Salad was still on the menu and delicious.... More

Laughing Ladies Restaurant recently changed ownership and they are off to a really bad start. The new owners have kept the previous owners sorry way of taking reservations onto an answering machine. If you don't hear back from them the assumption is you have the requested reservation. However, in our case, we didn't hear from them regarding our Valentine's Day... More
