“Melt-in-your-mouth Flat Iron Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Their signature flat iron steaks, available in 5, 8 and 10 ounce servings, are seasoned and done to perfection! The accompanying salad and sides were created equally well to make a wonderful meal. The staff was friendly and the service great. With a full bar, there were good beer and wine choices and the pour for a martini ample. When the rolls come warm and the salad on cold plates, this restaurant attends to the details of your dining pleasure. We had to go back! The prime rib and slow cooked BBQ ribs were hardy servings and just as delectable as the steaks. Although their dessert menu is limited, you might want to save room. Our shareable warm pecan brownie with ample ice cream and fudge sauce was mouth-watering!

“Best restaurant in Oakhurst”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk of our hotel, which happens to be just behind it, so we were skeptical of what we would find, and after trying several other places in town and being incredibly disappointed and tired of crappy food, we were blown away by the quality and service. The restaurant has an older look to it, but you can tell that it is well maintained. The waitresses were wonderful, very accommodating and pleasant (which can be hard to find when dining with a toddler). We ordered the spinach artichoke dip, prime rib, and Sweetwater chicken salad. All were very large portions, the salad was wonderful, prime rib cooked perfectly, and the dip was the best we'd ever had (real chunks of spinach and artichokes!). Fantastic dinner--just sad we found it on our last night there!

“Great steaks and ribs”

This place has one of the best steaks I ever had, they seasoned and cooked them perfectly. The second night we got the ribs and they were fantastic. The staff is very friendly and they gave us a good service. I highly recommend this steakhouse. Great job folks .

“return visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We went for breakfast the other week and I had the Prime Rib Omelette. My partner had the french toast breakfast. We both were given HUGE portions! The French Toast was on Steroids!!! :). The Staff was awesome on this AM (our previous visit a week earlier we had a grouchy waitress who gave us basic service!). But on the AM the young lad seating people and taking drink orders was just on top of his game! Our waitress rocked! Prices are a tad high, but the food is well worth it, I mean you can go across the street, and down the road, and pay the same prices for crappy food. When in a steakhouse..... expect a bit of a wait time because they really take their time with the food. Their breaky sausage is to die for!!!!! When we paid up the bill, I had a receipt/coupon from our previous visit for 10% off, but I did not have it with me..... they still gave us the discount. :)

“Really Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

While staying in Oakhurst, CA during exploration of Yosemite National Forest, came upon this fine restaurant. The staff was cheery and attentive. Ordered the Turkey Burger dinner which came with a house salad and sweet potato. The burger was nicely spiced and took on the appearance of a real beef burger with less calories and great healthy ingredients. Came with lettuce, tomato and avocado. Order taken quickly and delivery to table was also prompt. Not at all expensive. Atmosphere was pleasant and fit into the remote town experience.
