“Surprisingly Good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We both had the Clam Chowder followed by a Cobb Salad. The portions were very generous and surprisingly tasty. The service was very good; and, the bread & butter was in great supply and served warm tableside. Conveniently located just of Hwy 99, this restaurant is a good choice for lunch. Prices are not cheap...but, fair given the alternatives in the area.

“Poor Service, food was OK”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

As I stated in reviewing the Holiday Inn, the staff were too busy horsing around to give decent service, the windows looking out to the pond were very dirty and full of prints, the water in plastic glasses is not good and the excuse for being out of shrimp because someone went to buy it and didn;t come back was poor

“Good food and service, very convenient when passing by Selma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

I stayed one night in Selma, going from Yosemite National Park to Sequoia National Park.
This restaurant was a natural stop, since I was sleeping in the nearby hotel.
We had soup of the day, salad and tri-tip. The tri-tip was very good, really. The rest was absolutely ok.
Kind people, they were helpful all the time, even if we entered the restaurant when they were almost closing the kitchen.
Prices are ok for what you get. Ambience is nice (pub style) and clean.
Not a place for a long drive to, pleasant stop if you are passing by.

“What a hidden secret!! Great Food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

My family stopped there on our way to LA. It was a beautiful restaurant, surrounded by refresshing water falls. We did a little wine tasting then set down for the best meal we had eaten on our entore trip. They have a huge smoker outside and smoke their prime rib and steaks. I had the best Reuben Sandwich I had ever eaten!!!
