“Great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Stayed next door to Juicy's on a recent trip across country. Went into restaurant a little late in the evening. The staff was friendly and the service was great. The food was a nice change from fast food we had been eating along the way.

“"Amazingly Surprised"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

As guests staying at the local Best Western we were lead in the direction of great food and reasonable prices to Juicy's.

My wife , myself and a few other friends decided to head over for a nice relaxing sit down dinner after being on the road all day.

We walked in and were immediately welcomed with a smile and sat at a table. Nomore then 2 minutes we were approached by our waiter "Chris K" who then promptly had our drink order and recommended an appetizer to start with "Sampler Platter".

With so many choices on the menu we had asked Chris for his opinion on what's good. He had quick answers and a variety of choices which was very pleasant to have an employee so knowledgeable about his menu.

I myself had the ribeye steak which was cooked to perfection with mashed potatoes "little dry" and amazing sautéed vegetables, my dinner also came with a salad that was so fresh and crisp with house dressing "can't remember the name" my wife had the Seebes pasta with grilled shrimp which was also mouth watering , and our two friends both had the pot roast stroganoff .

If your ever in the area this is MUST EAT location. Very reasonable prices friendly staff and if Chris is working you must have him. He will make you laugh and smile and enjoy your time in the little town of needles.
Thank you Chris for your hospitality, fast friendly service and making us feel so welcomed, we will be back to see YOU.

Keep up the GREAT WORK juicy's!!

“such great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

we hesitated to go here because it looked like the "hotel's restaurant" when there was something more rustic looking across the street, but did they deliver good food! i think the inside and outside of the building weren't really representative of what a fantastic restaurant in needles should look (too modern on the outside, too typical-restaurant on the inside). they had not only bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, but herbs as well! i haven't even had anything this good at an italian restaurant. we had two people stop by our table other than the waiter to ask how the food was. the beef stroganoff was falling apart wonderfully and so tasty.

“Nowhere Near the River”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Guess the cook had an "off" day. Ordered the "famous" clam chowder. Took one bite and it was full of clumps of flour. The manager was nice and agreed that it had not been cooked properly. He offered anything else on the menu for same price, however the BLT was tasteless. Toasted bread was burnt and hardly any tomato. We hated to complain again about the food, so just paid the bill and left.
