The food here is pretty average. The servers are a bit quirky and awkward, but they do a good job. They realllllllly love John Wayne out here, it's kind of creepy. He'll stare at you for your whole meal.

Slow service and the food only fair. Comfort food. Lone Pine is expensive being a tourist town. Place has lots of old pictures.

Arrived here after we spent nearly 15 minutes being ignored by the staff at The Grill just down the street. What a contrast. This place has some character amd the waitresses couldn't do enough to help us. We were all famished and the eggs, bacon,...More

Stopped by for a quick bite. Menu was what you probably would find at your local diner, I had meatloaf and the wife had roast turkey, both were excellent. The walls are filled with pictures from the hay days of western films being made locally....More
