Dinner on an overnight stay in Gilroy, had read the reviews, and checked out menu. Food was excellent and as previous reviews-service was not all that good. Waiter was nice enough we just didn't see him all that much during dinner. It wasn't that busy so not sure what the issue was. Might try another restaurant next time.

Disappointed at the experience we had here recently. I had great expectations of this place based on the reviews, and I wanted to like this place a lot as the people here are nice. But, alas, not to be as the food (& method of service) here is so-so, maybe 2 star for our dinner. We had rack of lamb... More

I have been here many times and it is usually good. However I took my father here for his birthday and was extremely disappointed. Long story short at 6 pm on a Wednesday they had already ran out of baked potatoes (how do you run out of the cheapest and easiest available item?!) and had one slice of prime rib... More

We arrived at 8:15, sat at the bar and ordered 3 sides of lamb racks and french fries. It was delicious! There was a vocalist playing the guitar, which was a bit too loud, but after a couple of songs it was time for his break so the atmosphere was a bit more intimate.

I had blackened Ahi & my wife had the Prime Rib. Both were well prepared and generous-sized servings, but were served lukewarm on cold plates. The music was pleasant, but the acoustics in this re-purposed old building affected the sound and limited conversation. The waitress was very friendly & pleasant and was the best part of the evening.

A favorite dinner and drinking spot. Love the historic 1/2 circle bar and the original tile floor. The food is great. The staff friendly. A great but comfortable restaurant for the whole famile and special events too.

Had lunch at the bar with best friend. Terrific bartender (award winning) made a signature drink and it was terrific. She recommended options for lunch and we were very pleased. The bar itself is very interesting and the overall atmosphere was very enjoyable. The restaurant was nicely crowded for lunch.

Nice atmosphere. Local old time feeling. Great service. Hamburger and hot dogs great. Tuna melt and ham and cheese also great. Spacious seating and a very nice bar.
