“Local 'sports' bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Good food, nothing too fancy but reliable. Good beers. Nice patio. Lots of sports on the TV's. If I recall they have a pool table and a few arcade games (pinball and maybe Golden Tee).

“Surprisingly good food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

When driving by you might not stop, because it looks like a biker bar. But the food is great. It is casual, so many families stop in after sporting games with their kids. The food ranges from nachos, to clam chowder, steaks sandwiches to Cobb salads. The breakfasts are great and the prices are not too bad. This is a fun local secret!!

“All Around Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

The Purple Place is a long time tradition in El Dorado Hills. The food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are all very good and a good value. The live bands on Friday and Saturday nights makes it a great place for evenings.

“Great restaurant bar, kid friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

Great pub food (burgers and salads). Breakfast is awesome. Service is very friendly, and easy to bring a small child to the restaurant side. They have toys, wicki sticks, and crayons for kids. Lots of booths which is also easier with kids.

“Fun local hangout with good food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

This is our favorite lunch place. Casual atmosphere, good food, ample portions and reasonable prices. Friendly and efficient wait staff. Suggest half portions on the salads. My favorite sandwich is the salmon panini (ahi tuna panini when it's available). Breakfast also very good, but crowded on the weekends. Not much for ambience, but do look at the local murals on the walls.
