I won't review the food. This is a must visit restaurant for the view only. And the drive to get there. Friendly staff. Food is okay. Bottled beer only.

Great patio dining, outstanding service, a mom and pop operation. Good food with a fabulous view. Lake Elsinore at its finest. Buy the daily special, with a nice wine and save room for desserts to die for. A very romantic afternoon stop without rush

Great view from patio. Fun local place. The BBQ pork sandwich of the day was delicious. Excellent potato salad. Recommend as a stop. Breakfast and Lunch served all day.

The view is great, the food good, the inside atmosphere funky, Bruce, the server is friendly, but good luck if you need a restroom. They have ONE working, filthy, "Porti-Potty." If you gotta go, ya gotta go, but you'll be tempted to burn your shoes...More

Great restaurant, staff was wonderful. We normally don't eat dessert but our waitress was so wonderful and talked about the yummy chocolate cake that we had to try it. Yes it was delicious.

This place is a Mountain jewel. What could be better than experiencing Mother Nature from great heights with fantastic food & a waitress with a sense of humor. We all ordered different dishes & each of us was impressed with the high quality of food...More

Best spot to see the beauty of Lake Elsinore from the top. Breathtaking sunrise... a tranquil spot in the early morning! At least during the Gibby Road to Nichols Institute closure since January 25.
