Excellent diversity in the dishes we tasted. We started with the sesame-crusted seared ahi served on a bed of carrots and slaw. For the main, I had local salmon topped with artichokes, wonderfully spiced zucchini slices with corn, and baked potato with premixed sour cream...More

Ive only been here a couple of times but the Fish and Chips are really good and they do have a full bar for whatever accompanying drink you wish. Parking is a bit limited but its one of the better restaurants on the Peninsula.

Great food and a peaceful patio with views. Really enjoyed the waitstaff. Fun personalities. You can bring own wine and pay a small corkage fee. Love that. Food choices were diverse and so delicious. If you can get their fried asparagus, you gotta try it.

This is by far the best restaurant in town. Serving lots of mountain classics like steaks and seafood. They also have a full bar and the staff is great. Family friendly with good food and stiff drinks.

Dining options in nearby Chester (where we were staying) are frankly limited. The ROG was a pleasant surprise. Located on the shores of Lake Almanor, and a popular place for locals and visitors alike, our dinner and dessert were well prepared and reasonably priced. We'll...More
