We had a reservation via opentable, and when we arrived were seated very quickly. We ordered the rack of lamb, Kobe beef low carb hamburger plate, and rack of pork spare ribs. All were very good, service was very good, and total Including tip for 3 people was $95.

We observed many large families at restaurant. For a family of 8 depending on what you order they have a value priced selection that will probably cost you about $15 per person.

The place is always full and depending on what time you are there you will see a lot of families or couples. I am guessing there were a lot of families because of Spring Break.

They have a very extensive menu, so you are guaranteed to find something to your liking including price and selection.

Walking by this place I hesitated to enter because it appeared to be upscale. I was hungry and wanted to try a local spot so I walked up to the front, looked at the menu on the wall and wow it looked great so I entered. I can tell you this much, the only thing upscale was the decor, service and food. Not the prices! The place was packed and we got seated really fast, The food didn't take long to be served. I got the Chicken Filet Sandwich(pictured), it was really good. If you're in Palm Springs, I suggest you check this place out.

It was recommended by someone whose been many times. Dinner menu was extensive with many great grouping ideas. We had the BBQ ribs. Delicious. Huge restaurant inside. Great waiters. Would certainly return.

This place came highly recommended by a friend who has dined there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We stopped in for lunch. Maybe it was the timing – we were there (not by plan) during the last weekend of Modernism Week. Maybe during a slower time of year it would be better. I’m not sure I’m interested in returning to find out. The condition of the interior was tired and worn out. The bathroom was a smelly mess (have they heard of vents?). The server was not exactly surly, but not really engaged. We were dining after the lunch rush, but the place was still busy. Our server was more interested in getting things moving at our table. Order. Eat. Leave. I had the Russian Panini – it was soggy and not very flavorful. Others in my party remarked that their lunch was ok – but all in all, none of us saw any reason to return.
