Stepping into this restaurant, you're taken back to the early 1900s--very Victorian looking with antiques inside. The food is classic American with fried chicken, pot roast, pot pies, etc. served. I had the pot roast, served with a red wine sauce on top, which came with mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes--very good--while my husband has calamari (squid). For dessert, we... More

We are locals who have eaten here many times and have been pleased with the quality and selection of food. However, after a recent visit and having ordered fish & chips many times previously, my order of fish was overly coated and chewy instead of crunchy and light. The fries were not hot as usual as well. We did tell... More

I agree that this place was a bit of a let down. Had the sandwich and salad. Husby had sandwich and soup. Both were neither to write home about. Tomato soup was good. Other than the facts that it is a Cambria icon, I think we are over it

We had lunch here and loved the food as well as the ambience. My daughter had the fish and chips and devoured the entire lunch. My wife had a Burger and loved it. I had the clam chowder and a grilled veggie sandwich and it was to die for.

Good was good but the hostess was not great. Had reservations and waited for awhile then had her check again til she realized she did not check properly. Good food and the waiter was spot on. Will try it again in the future.

The ease with which we obtained a table -- last minute -- for 4 on a Friday night might have been a warning that this restaurant would not live up to its reputation. But what's start with what I did like: the bread the decent, the wait staff was apologetic about the amount of time it took to hunt down... More

My wife and I ate at Linn's for the first time two nights ago, and we were blown away by the food, and especially the service. Everything was flawless. I had the baseball cut top sirloin, which was much more tender than I expected, and my wife had the berry roasted chicken. Both of our dishes were terrific. Plates were... More

Our family ate dinner here and it was good. Maybe a little pricey for the quality but still good. The filet was excellent but the potatoes were cold so not so good. We were too full from dinner so didn't have dessert but their selection of desserts looked amazing.

Super service and great food- I got to try a Zinfadel that I was not familiar with and our wonderful young server offered to split the glass between my daughter and I- it was lovely! We ordered the Mahi Mahi and Polenra with roasted veggies as well as the Mac and cheese appetizer. Beautiful surroundings. It was a very busy... More
