“Lovely setting”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I eat here a lot and always have a good lunch. They make a wonderful Chinese chicken salad and it is quit large. The tomato soup is great. I love to sit out doors when the weather permits. The service and waiters are friendly and very good. The pork sandwich is also excellent.

The food here was great, right beside the Sata Ynez Inn. Everything was extremely fresh, true California fare!

“Great Service and Food”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We ate dinner on the patio and it was shaded and roomy. The service was attentive and all of our needs were met. A menu plus nightly specials should please most everyone. My mahi mahi and my husband's flat iron steak were done to perfection. Great coffee and a good wine selection.
