“Not good”
Reviewed January 10, 2011

Ribs were really fatty, beans overbooked, onion undercooked. Who ever heard of raspberry BBQ sauce? Service was great as was the soup.

“Horrible”
Reviewed July 27, 2010

Had to stay overnight in Redding to catch an early morning flight and decided to try something different. Bad idea. We arrived for dinner early so as not to fight any crowd. Arriving at 5 pm we found no one was there and were quickly seated. Within a few minutes several folks came into the bar area and were so loud that we couldn't talk at our table in the dining area.

The service was indifferent. Although only two tables were occuppied we had to wave down, shout out and finally go find our server for some service.

The food arrived and was horrific. Our starter of potatoe skins was clearly frozen out of the box. They were still frozen in the middle after being nuked and sent back twice to get them heated. The husbands prime rib and my tri tip were so bland and tough to eat that we didn't finish either. If it hadn't been for the wine we drank to wash it down with the food would have been inedible. The only flavor the tri tip had was the charred edges.

Too bad, the location is great and the restaurant ambience is cool, but that doesn't make up for the lousy service and food.
