Went in for a small meal. Just the nachos and mozarella sticks. Very friendly staff, free refills for coke and coffee. Excellent price/quality.

Quaint homely restaurant with great service and good hearty food. Music was good, not too loud and no heavy metal I cant thank the staff there enough as I left my backpack on the floor under the table when I left. The staff came running down the road to bring it to me. I had passport, money, camera and all... More

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel front desk staff. We would not have stopped in based on the outside appearance, and we would have missed a great meal. My mahi-mahi was cooked just right, served with a tasty mango relish, fresh asparagus spears, and a perfect baked potato. The meal came with a choice of soup or salad. The... More

My wife and I have eaten several times and whether they are busy or slow the food and service has been excellent. The staff always goes the extra step to make sure the diners needs are met.

I had a wonderful Oriental chicken salad here, and my husband had a tuna melt with fries. Their fries are amazing, much better than average. There were dried cranberries in the chicken salad, along with mandarin oranges and a lot of chow mein noodles. The dressing was wonderful. We will definitely be back here.

We stopped in Lone Pine after a long day of skiing, and were very hungry. We walked down the main road and stopped here because of the aroma coming from within! A small place, only one lady working when we sat down but she had it under control. Small menu, but exhausted as we were, simple was great. We ordered... More

I was craving ribs and the BBQ joint was closed, another resturant we went to did not have them - then as we were wandering around I saw the Totem Cafe sign - RIBS - and they are not to be missed !

I had a late breakfast here on my visit to Lone Pine. The menu is what you would expect to find in any diner in America. The food was average. The service was slow, given that only two other tables in the place were occupied. The coffee was mediocre. You can't go wrong having breakfast here. You just won't rave... More

We were looking for a steak dinner and this restaurant had the best selection of steak. Priced too high however but still the food was good. Servers were very nice.

Stopped in here because I was hungry, I choose a steak and ordered extra onions & mushrooms. The menu says they use the best quality meat, it was not that tender.. then the onions were red onions fried...yuk! When I questioned this I was told "we only use red onions" Overpriced for substandard food.
