The Coffee cake was average. The Belgian waffle with fruit was average. Fresh fruit but the waffle was just average. The Eggs Benedict was below average but the... More

We stopped here for breakfast and had a great meal. We had the checken fried steak with eggs and potatoes and grandpa's omelet. Both meals were excellent. They don't serve premade or frozen food. You can tell it is fresh. And the potatoes are to die for!! Crispy on the outside just as I like them. They also serve a... More

Today one of our local ladies groups met at this restaurant. We ate in the back room which was very quiet and conducive to conversations. There were twelve of us. We have these luncheons twice a year and they never disappoint me. Since it's one of my favorite places to eat, it wasn't difficult to choose the Reuben (pastrami, cold... More

I've seen a lot of restaurant styles and trained many servers over the years, and on my first trip to Annie's I had one of the most attentive and well-trained servers I've seen in the two County area (Sierra/Placer) She not only kept my ice tea full, with an equally attentive bus-person, but brought me a box for my half...

We discovered this restaurant a decade ago, in old Auburn. The facility was historical , food was great and the crowds were large. They added another restaurant in Lincoln that we enjoyed, and now have a large, coveniently located restaurant on Interstate 80. We often take weekend trips to Reno, with breakfast stops in the fold mining towns. Parking around... More
