We stopped here for lunch on our way through and we were impressed with the food.

It doesn't claim to be a romantic spot. It is a pub type grill which is known for its meats.

My husband ordered a half size of nachos and it was HUGE... he loved them, especially the shredded pork.

I got a chicken salad and it was very good. Nice pieces of meat and a strong and filing salad.

The service was good but it was not busy.

We stopped here on a drive up the coast. It was the weekend between Christmas and New years, so every place to eat was really crowded with long waits, so we kept driving. We stopped here and there was no wait, but didn't realize there was only one server for the whole place until after we were seated. Poor girl did her best but the place ended up getting really full with a wait before we were done. We ordered a spinach salad and Steak Quesadilla. They were both excellent. large portions and very tasty.

We recently had a few days down in the Big Sur area, and we had an evening meal at the Redwood Grill.
Both meals were very good, prices were reasonable, and the waitress was nice and friendly.

The restaurant has that relaxed Big Sur type setting. It feels like an old saloon. It is very woody inside but the food is very fresh and very well prepared. However, if you prefer food that is not at all unique, i would not suggest eating here. The grilled veggie wrap uses brown rice, for example. The mixed green salad was adorned with figs and goat cheese. The caeser could be dressed with a home smoked lox. Get it? We loved it.

The food here is excellent and the portions are huge. We started with the hummus & pitta and it was pretty much a meal on its own. Appeared to be freshly home made, we took half away in a box for the next day. Our mains were burritos, and they were delicious, again freshly made and tasting superb. They were far too big but we both kept going because they were so good. Our waitress was great, she kept us informed on a slight delay in our meals being ready ( we had arrived just after a large group of hungry walkers) and was very friendly and chatty - thanks to Liz. Prices are very good too. Great value.
