Tuesday evening was a steak special, and the service was excellent. Steak was great, and not too large. Waiter was on top of everything going on. We'll be back.

While passing through town decided to try this restaurant. So glad we did! Very friendly hostess, sat outside on the patio. Very peaceful. I had the mixed greens salad with apples, walnuts, chicken and blue cheese. Simply Devine! My friend had a burger and she loved it! Definitely worth stopping by for a great meal. Service was excellent as well.

We visited a second time to make sure of our opinions., The salads are great, and very generous portions, but their problem is service. Very slow, and they can't make up for it with friendliness. Both times we waited too long for every request. Must be some sort of corporate or standard that makes it that way. My sandwich was... More

We ordered the Tuesday dinner special for 2, which included a tasty and tender 5 ounce top sirloin steak each with perfectly prepared green beans and mashed potato. We sat outside and enjoyed the sounds of the waterfall feature as we dined and shared drinks and desert. The cheesecake and Creme brûlée were both yummy! We come to Atascadero for... More

Lovely patio with a fire pit. Cosy booths inside and larger tables for larger parties. Prime Rib on Fridays and Saturdays - big thick and delicious. Wonderful staff. Nice quiet guitar music was a nice addition.

I really enjoy this homey and comfortable restaurant that excels in grilled and roasted meats with well executed salads and sides. I musn't forget the excellent parsley, garlic and perhaps cilantro tamponade that comes with nice French bread at the start of the meal. They have nightly specials and my favorite is the great sirloin steak dinners (excellent value at... More

Comfort Food, Steaks, Salads. Not a large menu, but what's on it tastes good and has reasonable portions. Very good with friends or a date. Both inside and outside seating is available and the covered outside seating lends itself to larger groups during good weather.

I'm conflicted about this place. The meatloaf dinner was tasty, but dry. If it hadn't been for the gravy covering it, I wouldn't have liked it. The mushroom appetizer was delicious with marvelous Cajun seasoning. The Bloody Mary was terrible. Even though it came with an olive, a pearl onion, and a piece of celery, the drink itself was bland... More
