We took the backroads through Barstow and found this wonderful steakhouse. The wait staff was friendly, the indoor garden was neat, and the steak was delicious. This place is larger than you think, but remains very cozy in feel.

Ate dinner with group of 10. Standard steakhouse sort of menu. Not much else. Steak was good. Decor is interestingly western. There is a bar too. Bottled beer only. Service was very good. Check it out if in town.
