Prime rib deal for $14.99 was flawless. Included salad, dessert, and delicious Indian Fry Bread. Recommend balcony seating during day for great views. Breakfast was also delicious. Had Hash and eggs. Fresh, made from scratch meat. French toast looked fabulous. Will order next time. Open 24 hours.

We have gone many times for their Steak & eggs. It's got to be one of the best around San Diego Co. With a very reasonable price. Never a tough steak & flavor is Super. Eggs cooked exactly to order. Service is good. When busy the cook is a little slow. Coffee is great also.

We have eaten here many times. Breakfast has a great selection Dinners are fantastic. Asian to Greek. Prime rib is a hit. The staff has always been great. Patio tables have a nice view of the golf course. Prices are reasonable.

Very good food. The Prime Rib dinner served every day comes with garlic mashed potatoes, veggie, soup & ice cream, all for $14.95. Now that's a bargain anywhere! It was very good. Ate all of our meals there as the prices are very reasonable,

whenever we stay overnight, Sage is the place we have breakfast. It is very inexpensive. Pancakes, bacon and eggs with coffee for under $10.00 is a bargain. Service can be slow but people are very friendly. Try to get a table "outside", it is glassed in area with a very nice view (you might even see a white egret).

We had a wonderful prime rib lunch and it also came with a vanilla ice cream desert. We had an awesome table next to the window that had a wonderful view of the golf course. A very memorable Christmas Day. We wanted to go back Christmas of 2015 however the Sage was closed and was being remodeled. So Christmas 2016... More
