We were staying at the Best Western for the night and Juicy's is a short walk across the parking lot. The service was excellent (thank you Serena) and our meals hot and fresh. The restaurant is clean and quite large.

The staff was very friendly and professional. The orders were taken very quickly and accommodations made for requested changes. The food was hot and tasty. The mashed potatoes tasted home made. Full service bar. Enjoyed the meal very much.

Recently stayed the night in town, this place looked like the nicest place available to eat dinner. The staff was friendly, but it took a bit for the hostess to clean a table for us to sit. They started with giving us rolls and olive oil. The rolls were dense but buttery, very good. The olive oil was overpowered with... More

Great delicious healthy meal. We thought about going to the wagon wheel down the street, but juicy's was far nicer and more refreshing.

Stayed next door at the BW and had dinner and breakfast here. The service was great and everything we had for both dinner and breakfast was good quality and really tasty. The waitresses were friendly and welcoming and we would not hesitate to recommend.

We stopped here on our way to California for lunch. There was a strange smell when we entered the restaurant. We were seated right away however the place was not busy. Our server was very friendly and took our orders in a timely manner. We had the chicken ranch wrap and the Adobe wrap. They were both average wraps and... More

We had an excellent meal here. I had clam chowder and cod and shrimp in tempura batter which was beautifully cooked and the cod was not overdone but moist and flaky. Good value for money.

We had dinner here when passing through Needles. The food was excellent (we had half a rack of ribs each) and the service is superb. In fact I've never experienced such an excellent team of serving staff. They are all very polite, friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit.

If you're coming in off the road and looking for a place to eat, the name makes this place sound like it might be a nice place to eat. It is not. However, I don't know what other dining spots are like in Needles. By comparison, this could be pretty good. It is simply the restaurant across the parking lot... More

Stopped here for breakfast. Took a bit to get seated but once at our table service was good. They have two dining rooms, one with traditional booths, the other more open and casual with tables and chair/booth combo seating. The downside to the open dining room is its more noisy, less private. Our breakfasts were basic fare, eggs fluffy, pancake... More
