Hate giving a bad review but honesty is a virtue and I can't steer my readers wrong. I'm sorry to say but this place is not worth the money even when you buy early bird special of two meals for $21.95. The vegetables are way over cooked mushy bland flavorless need I say more! The chefs special look like it... More

Being from Michigan, I have not been to many restaurants in Sonora, but tonight we went to Gus's. I have driven by, noticed it always busy. I see why. We had an excellent waitress, Heather. We arrived before seven, so we were in time for their early bird special. For a little over 20 dollars, you get two entrees (out... More

We went at happy hour for their specials and to get back to Angels Camp before dark, the roads are narrow at times between the two cities. The owner was supervising the crew and helping! Service was excellent, food was good, and prices were reasonable. Locals love the place. They have a separate bar area which was busy as well.We... More

They have an early bird 2 for 21.95 special from 3-7 pm. Many choices, food was excellent. Great sourdough bread with a cheese fondue dip. Everything was full of flavor. Generous portions. The service is outstanding, it was busy and still we had great service. You can't beat their early bird special; it even includes dessert! I would like to... More

Locals' spot for a good dinner out. Take advantage of the early bird dinners, you won't be disappointed!

This may be old school restaurant but the prime rib is heavenly. I have eaten a lot of prime rib this was the BEST.

We have dined at Gus's Steak House a few times over the past few years. Their early-bird specials are reasonably priced, even though the price has increased over the past couple of years.

We ate here one night while staying in Jamestown. The food was excellent and the prices very reasonable. It's a nice place with a very friendly staff. We wanted a nice steak dinner since it was our anniversary and there weren't any decent restaurants in the area. This place was recommended by a woman I talked to in the lobby... More
