“Very nice food, reasonably priced”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We read the reviews for restaurants in Twentynine Palms and picked this one to try. We liked it so much we booked for the second night too. The chicken pasta dish I had was lovely and a very generous size. My husband had a burger which he enjoyed very much. The second night we had set our hearts on the ribs special but they had sold out - you have to get in early for that apparently. We didn't think it was overpriced as one recent reviewer commented, but we are used to UK prices so everything thing in the US is good value to us!

“Pretty good food but very overpriced”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

This restaurant is probably the best for many miles in any direction, and the food is certainly OK, but it is by no means the "fine dining" that you would expect based on the prices. My wife and I had a shared appetizer, a shared salad, entrees, a very modest bottle of wine, and a shared dessert. Out bill was around $120. Our server was very attentive, perhaps a bit too much so.

“Nice Dinner”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Had a good dinner in here one night, friendly service.
Nice decor on inside food not too expensive.Easily missed on the main drag through town but worth a visit if you fancy something not deep fried.

The food was delicious, the staff friendly and courteous. The Flat Iron steak was cooked to perfection. Chicken and Penne was delicious.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Having spent the day touring the nearby Mount San Jacinto and Joshua Tree National Park, we stayed in Twenty Nine Palms and came here for dinner. It was our first meal out in California and they really impressed. Very good food, great service and a reasonable price.
