This is in the lobby, but is a great place to grab a drink and a quick bite. It is somewhat humbling to sit with all the portraits of prior U.S. President's whom have stayed here watching you get lit!

The place was packed on Dec 28. Waited 30 min to share a table with another couple. Had a grand time talking, eating, drinking, for over 3 hrs. Prices are reasonable.

Drinks are good, but the steak notches were outstanding. What could be more fun than to sit in a room where our presidents have been.

When visiting the Mission Inn the Presidential Lounge is the place to be! Take a dip into the Presidential margarita (POTUS-Sized glass!) and pair it with their amazing guacamole. It's been said that at certain times of night or the week, this is the "A-lister's...More
