We were at this restaurant for lunch. Others dining included couples and small groups. Service was a little slow and we had to wait for our check even though the place was not packed. It's a bit dark in the booths with high backs and old looking finishes. The menu had a variety of dishes that would please anyone looking... More

Went here for the first time while visiting a friend in Pasadena. How I wish we had places like this around my home! A great break from the normal chain restaurants. Located on the main drag (Sierra Madre Blvd) through Sierra Madre, this entire street is a throwback to what towns used to be like in the US. The Only... More

Our friends invited us to this restaurant with our kids and we all had a great time. The service was very pleasant, our waitress was very attentive to all our needs. Food was great and the location is wonderful to stroll down the main street and experience other stores.

The Only Place In Town has been a Sierra Madre restaurant for years. Owned for several years by the previous owner of Barney's in Old Town Pasadena, CA. The service is prompt, staff is great, and the menu has anything you could possibly want. The Maggie Wong salad is a staple and one of my favorites. I also love the... More

The egg dishes are ok but the cream cheese stuffed French toast with blueberries looked like a jar of jam was poured on soggy toast. We thought the dish would have fresh fruit and the toast would be whole grain and well cooked. My elderly mother couldn't eat it. Another dish was offered, but she didn't want it. The fruit... More

We've been here probably 100 times. It's our regular go-to place for dinners when we want American Food. A lot of the foods are home-made, not purchased from a wholesaler. For example, they make their own loafs of zucchini bread, which makes an outstanding appetizer while waiting for dinner. They make their own Spinach-Nut Burgers, which are moist and tender,... More

We had good service and good food. Their own label of wine was weak. I thought the prices were high for the quality of the food.

We've been to this restaurant several times. Most recently, we arrived at a busy time and our names were taken. However, we could see a couple of empty tables. We waited, figuring we would be seated quickly, only to watch several more tables become available. After about 15 minutes, I asked how much longer it would be, because I had... More
