I have been to Powell's several times over the last 10 years. Its always consistently good. Love their chowders and the shrimp louie sandwich with real louie dressing like it should be.

Didn't eat here so I can't rate the food. But their beer selection was outstanding. They had something like 20+ different microbrews on tap. I have to go back to try more!

You people have no concept of how small towns are. You're probably not even from the area. Powell's was a part of Placerville long before you imbecils even knew if this town's existence. Not only should not come back, but stay out of Placerville as well.

The salad was bagged lettuce with a few hot house grape tomatoes and dressing in a cup on the side. Why serve a crab and shrimp sandwich on a croissant when it is traditionally and tastes better on sourdough? The menu isn't very imaginative and the most interesting thing about this place is the fish tank that needs a good cleaning. The decor is very dated and the carpet looks like it needs to be replaced, like ten years ago.

I was anxious to eat here having been in the area many times. Got there a few minutes after lunch menu. "Are you still serving lunch" ? "No" ........ OK lets try the dinner menu. It was the worst shrimp scampi I have ever had. I had to add salt so it had some flavor. No free refills on soda (I understand). There was a "jazz" band there that was not playing "jazz" they did 70s rock hits. the band was OK but a little too loud. The waitress was not very good slow and we were not impressed with her. 90.00 later we left hungry. We wont return.
