They have great burgers and the Maple glazed Ahei tuna is one of mu favorites. They have inviting outdoor seating.

We ate outside on the patio overlooking the river and had a really good experience. The fish tacos were spot on as was the spinach salad. The wait staff was extremely friendly, attentive & accommodating. The wine selection was very nice and prices were reasonable. This is a wonderful place to dine & enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Salida CO!

Every time we have stopped while traveling either to Denver or to our home across monarch pass, we have had a wonderful meal. It doesn't matter what day we have stopped or whether it is lunch or dinner, our meal has been fresh, flavorful and very appealing! Sitting outside in the summer just adds to everything. It is a must!

This place is not real easy to find behind a parking lot and business building - but we were rewarded when we found it. Good service, the smoked turkey panini sandwich was very good and the portions were very generous. It looked like they were baking their own bread - it was great. We were on a road trip and... More

Delicious food, reasonable prices, and a fine flight of red wines which can be purchased for take home. We dined on the patio with a view of the Arkansas River and mountains. Wait staff was accurate, friendly and attentive.

The menu provides a variety of options including various cultural dishes. There is also a selection of wines, beers, and drinks, all at very reasonable prices. Our patio evening seating was perfect. The wait staff was helpful without being too intruding.

There's better restaurants and bars in downtown Salida, but this is a great stop if you're driving 285 since it's not all the way in town; an easy detour to grab a bite and gas is close by. There is no other good food/gas stop for quite awhile if you're headed south. The menu is a bit across the board... More

Lunch at the lakeside patio is always a pleasure with the good reasonably priced wines, great salads, and nice service.

Enjoy eating on the patio by the river, but last visit it was too windy, and had to eat inside. The waitress was very nice, and service was fast. the Shrimp Tia dish was very hot, and I was unable to eat much of it, though would be very good if you like hot foods. The egg roll was very... More
