Ordered a cheese omelet & side of extra crispy bacon. The omelet was okay- not good, not bad, just okay. Bacon came out super dark brown but not crisp, more jerky like. Staff was very friendly, but seemed overwhelmed.

Comfortable restaurant with reasonable prices, friendly staff, and great french fries. They do close from 2 to 5 between lunch and dinner. Easy to find and short trip from Hearst Castle.

We stayed at the Silver Hotel and just wanted to eat something. This place is pretty simple and so is the food. All fried stuff and the prices are very high for such quality of food. It was not my taste...

We chose this place because it was close to the hotel and pretty late. It didn't seem there were many choices without driving to Cambria. The wings were good. But very Tiny. The nachos were terrible. The tri tip was not even chewable. I dont...More
