The restaurant has an extensive menu. Nothing extraordinary...just American food of high quality. We were there more than a year ago so things may have changed. It is in an excellent location just of Highway #85 (exit 54) and there are several other restaurants there as well.

This restaurant is way from downtown. It's out near I85 at Pelham rd. I like the food at C.D. But if your family is on a budget this place can get pricey. My favorite dish is the seafood nachos. The steaks are good but it hurts to pay so much for it.

It would be good to be able to read the menu and actually see what is served on your plate...without feeling the need to constantly squint like your eyesight is rapidly failing because it's so dark in there!

Fun castle atmosphere. The food portions were royal, especially the fish nachos. Salads should be knighted. Appears to be a popular place for locals and travelers.

I spent 3 months in the early 90's on business in Greenville. I ate at California Dreaming at least one night and most times 2 nights during these trips. We loved California Dreaming back then. I had the opportunity to visit Greenville nearly 2 decades later and we ate at California Dreaming. Well, I was very pleased with the quality of the food and the ambience. Little has changed in 20 years. The service is exactly as I remembered it, friendly and efficient. The food was great. I had the ribs which were tender, fall of the bone and lightly charred. My wife had the flounder. My son had the filet which he claimed was excellent. The servings were so large that my wife and I had the same thing for dinner the next night thanks to "doggie bags".

I felt the prices were reasonable. In fact based upon the rule of 72 the food inflation rate was about 2 percent--not bad. I would highly recommend California Dreaming
