Since it is not really visible from the highway exit at Dutch Flat - it is just on the N. side of the hwy. Good food is hard to find along the hwy and this is one of the very few worth a stop. 1. Bar. Great old bar with fire populated mainly by locals. Rather separate from the dining... More

Whenever I'm in the area, this little bit of heaven is a must-stop for me...I sometimes even plan trips around "my" Monte Vista Inn. I love the atmosphere, the service, the owners, and OH! then there's the food! You won't ever be forced to experience a bad meal here...I do believe they're incapable of it!

Priced midrange and appropriate for the atmosphere and quality of food and service. Been back a second time and... More

From the hand sewn napkins and seasonal decorations to the delicious in house pies you cannot have a bad meal at the Monte Vista Inn along Highway 80! My husband swears by the rib eye steak and I love the pasta in cream sauce! They have a squash ravioli in the fall that's amazing. Our kids enjoy playing checkers before... More

This is my favorite restaurant. A great fine dining menu but also burgers and sandwiches which are great for kids or those with smaller appetites. Their soups are amazing. This place has a charming country inn atmosphere with reasonably priced Cordon Bleu quality entrees and wonderful deserts. For us it's an hours drive from home but always worth the trip

If you live nearby or you're traveling on Hwy 80, you have to stop at the Monte Vista Inn in Dutch Flat for dinner. Authentic, cozy cabin style dining, seconds off the freeway. The food is amazing! Great variety on the menu. Everything I've ever had is so delicious & fresh. Shrimp scampi, mushroom raviolis, burgers, fresh fish specials. Yum!... More
