My daughter and I ate here after driving from Malibu and her freshman year at Pepperdine. We enjoyed the steak, tableside prepared salads and the friendly staff. It made me happy eat a nice meal before driving another 200 miles that night.

I had a stop-over in Barstow and this restaurant was recommended. I was travelling solo and was happy to find something that wasn't fast food. After a 6-hour drive I had a very good meal, great service, in a relaxing atmosphere.
