“great ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We went here for dinner and had a good experience. Food is good, staff is excellent, ambiance is very pleasant. We ate indoors, but would return to eat outdoors as well. We will return on our next visit.

“The right spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We went for a nice two day motorcycle trip and ended our first night here in Julian CA
What a nice quit town. We stayed at the Julian Country Inn and they recommended the “Julian Grille”… what a perfect suggestion.
They restaurant had a very nice outside seating area, with a little fire pit and water garden.
With a full bar and a good wine section, we start with a drink.
Great dinner selection and the portions were nice and big!
We finished it off with their homemade apple pie! BTW: this place is known for their apple
Wonderful – we loved very bit… of course, we realized we should have taken a picture of dessert before we eat it all. All the more reason, you should go there and try it yourself
Look forward to having dinner here again

PS: they do have a kids menu and there outside seating is pet friendly

“Yummy!”

We went here for our anniversary diner while visiting Julian over July 4th week. The prime rib was perfect and the linguine and prawns was divine. A great place for a wonderful meal. Highly recommend.
