I have been frequenting this establishment for almost ten years since my family moved to Pacifica-so when visiting the area i always make a point to stop in.Unlike the highly overrated Nicks on Rockaway Beach, the food is always decent and locals always kind to a tourist of unfamiliar face.The fact that many families are on site speaks volumes on whether mgmt. runs
a solid operation.Ive seen other TA reviews questioning the need to pass through the lounge in order to get to the dining room but ive never heard or seen anything inappropriate as a guest of either room.Theres also an intimate outdoor seating area in back shielded from the pacific winds that blow hard in this area-especially considering its right on the PCS Route 1 northound.You cant miss the boxcar outside as this was a major train stop back in the early days of sightseeing on the coast prior to major development-there is much vintage photos inside for train buffs and some incredible dioramas allegedly made by a former employee of filmaker George Lucas of Star Wars fame.Theres also a Mexican Taqueria,market with incredible micro brew and wine selection and a decent coffee shop run out of a caboose all on same lot. Food is largely american menu of steak,chops,pasta,chicken,etc. Many appetizers, of which i favor the fried zuchinni sticks....

We had an ok dinner there...Interior can stand to be updated. Staff was friendly. Food was just ok - chicken piccata was nothing special.

We had been driving most of the day to get back to SF for an early flight home. Pulled into this resturant on a whim and are we ever glad! Service was great. Food was awesome -even our incredibly picky 10 year old loved the food! A great meal to end our great vacation.
