There isn't an actual website but the site I gave you gives a little info & has a email address. The restaurant was mentioned in Sunset Magazine in the June 2010 issue in an article about Sierra City. The restaurant seating is outside in a beautiful terraced garden with many beautiful plants & flowers & with a creek running through it.
