My friend and I had dinner in this restaurant at the motel where we stayed. It was a very good choice. The Mushroom caps appetizer is delicious. The best I have ever had. The fish dinner was also very good.

We rode into here on our bicycles -it was a welcome respite from the road. Wonderful service and nice rooms. Decided to eat at the restaurant. We had good pasta and the trout was excellent. They have draft beer and pour a decent glass if wine -not skimpy. Nice place -I would recommend to all travelers.

Very tired after a long drive & almost decided against dinner. Very pleased we went ahead. The pickerel dinner was perfect, grilled just right & oh so tasty. Very large portions & delivered straight from the kitchen. Kind of dated decor but who cares? A new server but she did well & we told her so. I would definitely recommend... More

We managed to get a room here when The Queensway Motel in Espanola gave away our credit card reserved room, so we are grateful. However, the hotel does not take pets or children. My travelling companion was my 17 year old son so this was not a problem. It was quite expensive but really the only viable option in the... More

Wow what a surprise to have a great lunch in a motor inn. We had asked a couple of locals walking where to eat and they recommended the Pine Ridge. We had a great lunch , all fresh and tasty at very low cost. The room itself is very nice log cabin style and the waitress was great and quick.

I'm not sure when I last ate at a place (if ever) that I ever felt the need to post a 'terrible' review. As noted above our server was rude, my fish and veg were cold to the touch whereas the fries were hot - I guess someone forgot to microwave it so it was at least all at the... More

Very friendly service and a warm atmosphere. Their specialty is prime rib which we really enjoyed, although I have to say the caesar salad was very uninspiring. The menu had a decent selection and the prices were reasonable… probably the best place to eat in Espanola.

The Pinewood Restaurant has a nice variety on its menu. Their specialty is prime rib which is very tasty. Try the ranch style potatoes for a nice flavorful change. Prices are reasonable and you can feel comfortable here in a suit or jeans and a t-shirt.
