Groveland is small. Just the way you want an old Gold mining town to be. So I wasn't really expecting any great food as you have limited options, so there is no need for a restaurant to try to hard. How wrong i was. Fork...More

We ate here whilst staying in the hotel, the food was lovely, and very nice to see a different vegetarian option other than mushroom and goats cheese.
