Went with Family because they wanted Prime Rib. First of all, the House Salad is Awesome with the Hot bacon and Honey Mustard dressing! It could be a meal in its self. Ham, bacon, eggs, almonds and etc. I had the Shrimp pasta and it was good, but do not think I would order it again. One of the people... More

We ate here after trying to eat at nearby restaurants and there was an hour or longer wait. There was no wait at California Dreaming. The Mojito cocktail I ordered was yummy. The side salad that I got with my dinner was very good; well above average, and the chicken with mashed potatoes I had for my entree was tasty... More

Was a bit disappointed with the quality of food per value. Portion size was great. My friends had checken tenders and it was salty. Service was excellent and the ambiance was great.

As a chain restaurant, I find California Dreamin' to be above average. However, our visits to this particular restaurant in the past have been of mixed quality. Our latest meal there was one of our better experiences.

Good steaks reasonable price, about $35 per person. The service was very good, the salad was fresh and the steak is better than what you get an Outback but not quite a Morton's. The atmosphere was good and no reservation needed but we were there on a Wednesday night

Stayed in Duluth while attending Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, wanted a restaurant that would have something for everyone in our party. She Crab soup was melt-in-you-mouth amazing. Traditional Nachos were huge and totally inhaleable. Attentive service yet not intrusive. Great place to relax and unwind with friends.

We frequently eat here and have never had any complaints or issues with the food or service. One of the best meals here is the house salad and chicken fingers (eat them together). Nothing but good things to say about this place.
