Went to this restaurant for a steak and boy what a disappointment. I always order filet and this was the toughest filet I ever ate. The steak tasted like it was baked in an iron skillet. The sweet potatoes, salad and bread was good. The...More

We came here after a long day in Yosemite and were really pleased by our meal. It was very reasonably priced for a starter chili con carne and a decent sized steak. The service was a bit quick, but that seemed to be common in...More

The service was sketchy at best. The food was bland. The cost wan’t worth it. We really didn’t enjoy this meal and that’s not common for us. I don’t recommend this for dinners.
