“Refreshing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

In an area packed with over priced, pay for the view, mediocre food restaurants , 5 Mile House was like a breath of fresh air. The patio was relaxing in the shade of the pines and the food was impressive, homemade selections that were delicious! I'd definitely make a stop there if in the area.

“A poor meal in a beautiful setting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had a very poor meal. My hamburger, although ordered med rare, was a shoe sole. The meat was barley warm, but there was a ridiculously sized portion of french fries that were very good. My friends' meals were also poor. The service was very slow, although the server was pleasant. She never asked how our meal was, if we wanted more wine, in other words, the service was inattentive. I live nearby and am disappointed that I won't go back. There is always a packed parking lot, but why? High prices, c minus food, crummy service does not a good restaurant make!

“Worst service ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

My husband and I have been living in Nevada City for six months. We had heard good things about The Old 5 Mile House restaurant so we decided to try it on a Saturday night in early June. When we pulled into the parking lot at 7:45 pm, we were dismayed at how crowded the parking lot was but since we had made the long drive there, we thought we'd give it a try. We were seated almost immediately in the outside patio and our lifeless waitress, Sarah, brought us our drinks and bread right away. After that is when the dining experience started to go downhill. We waited for almost a half hour for Sarah to come back to take our order as she went around giving drinks and plates of food to other customers on the patio. Not once did she look over at us or even acknowledge that we were there. In fact we watched as she brought two separate sets of drinks to a couple guys at a nearby table and stood there chatting with them each time then promptly walked back inside without even glancing our way. When the young and very polite guy who originally seated us walked by, we told him to please get our waitress and tell her to bring us our bill because we were leaving due to waiting almost a half hour with no service. He apologized profusely to us and went over and said something to her. She came to our table immediately and did not even apologize for the wait. All she said was, "what can I get you?". We told her all she could get for us was the bill because we were leaving. Finally THAT got her attention and she at least comped our drinks. This place has a good reputation, an awesome menu and we were very disappointed that we did not have a chance to order dinner but unfortunately this was some of the worst service we have ever experienced in all of our years of dining experience.
