Most restaurants, you go in, you look at the menu, you order, you’re serve, you eat, you pay, you leave. Right? It doesn’t work that way here. This is a Basque restaurant and it’s a family dinner style restaurant. So, if there are two of you or 10 of you, you’re treated the same. When you set down at the... More

Good size portions, tasty food, and friendly staff. Tuna sandwich was served in a unique way, with tuna served on the side.

Always a great time going there! As a Bakersfield staple they live up to the hype. The best filet mignon I've ever had and after having the setup with basque soup I made some for myself the next day. Also loved the Moscow mules.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about Wool Growers. It is one of, if not the oldest Basque restaurant in Bakersfield, a city known for Basque cuisine. I love this place, and have been many times with groups, but recently my wife and I for the first time just the two of us, and it was just... More

Well we have been here many times and we have never been disappointed. The garlic pork chops are to die for, as is the set up that comes before your main dish, as usual we filled up on the set up and will have left over pork chops for breakfast

I had been to the Wool Growers a few times, but my latest was a drinking affair. We waited a long time for a table (an hour orz more), drinking all the time. We were smashed when we dined. But,then again, so were many of the others dining that night. It is simply the best of the Basque in Bakersfield.... More

This is a restaurant with history and has been visited by a lot of celebrities including President Reagan, Huell Howser, etc. While you are there, make sure to check on all photos on the walls. We had a family style lunch with roast lamb chop and it was delicious! I also like their soup. They have a huge banquet room... More

If you like Basque food this is one of the best you can find. If you never have eaten Basque food it will be a culinary delight.. I suggest you make reservation for it is a very popular place. The staff are there to please.

Thank Lloyd M
