Food was delicious, service was fast, and the food was hot when it arrived at the table. We skipped dessert, we were too full from dinner. Next time we'll save room!

Very nice experience near Pauma Valley. The ranch is surrounded by hundreds of orange trees and you can smell the trees when sitting in front of your room in the evening. Marvellous sensation, serenity, calm and beauty. Friendly atmosphere, nice cocktail lounge, good restaurant. A must.

Broasted Chicken dinner was amazing. Feels like an ol' timey place, friendly service, more than enough food. There is a full bar and the drinks are on the "zestier" side, though well priced.

We stopped in for dinner, and were delighted. The food was awesome, from the Broasted Chicken, to the Prime Rib, and the Shrimp Pasta. Dessert included cheese cake and Creme Brulee. All was delicious. The atmosphere is down home and quaint. Would recommend! Our servers were prompt, courteous and funny! We ended the evening with a nice chat with the... More

Lazy H Ranch is a place that time forgot. The story is that this was once a gentlemans club in the old days and frequented by the likes of Hollywood legends like Lon Cheney and John Wayne. The rooms are darling, each with their own theme. My friends stayed in the Vintage Room and found it very comfortable and pleasant.... More

On a recent trip to CA we took our sister in law here for her birthday. A quaint little place out in the country, but good service and excellent food.

Built in the 1920's, this ranch style restaurant and motel is located along Highway 76 in the back county of San Diego. Formerly a sleepy stretch of road, Highway 76 now connects 4 major casino resorts: Valley View, Harrah's Rincon, Casino Pauma, and Pala. Most visitors drive right by the Lazy H, those who do stop in are treated to a step back in time. The dining room is right out of the 50s, the menu is varied and wholesome. Weekends are busiest, when locals come out to dine.
