This was a family favorite growing up so I'm sure some of what I liked was the nostalgia. We were there for a family birthday on a Saturday night and in the back part of the restaurant with other large groups. The place was hopping!...More

This restaurant is a long time fixture in Old Town Kern. Good bar and seating may be family style. It's generally pretty casual as far as dress goes.

This is my favorite Basque restaurant, the food is great, it has a very home made taste to it. Location is not the best but it must be taken into account that it is the original location of the restaurant since it opened its doors.

Our group of 14 girls met here for Our birthday luncheon. We often choose this restaurant is it does a great job with the group and a variety is great. I had the scampi and it was delicious and plentiful.

Wool Growers starts dinner seating at 6:00. They may take your reservation, but you won't be able to be seated until then. The last time we were there it was a Wednesday night and it was packed.
