mashed potatoes + fresh green beans. Mushroom, whole grain mustard/horseradish sauce
The valley's favorite since 1992. Offering Fresh California Cuisine with all natural and antibiotic free meats, chicken and pork, wild or sustainable seafood and fresh/local produce whenever possible. We offer USDA PRIME USDA Black Angus Steaks. All of our sauces, desserts and dressings are made in-house. Our Motto: DINE LOCAL. EAT FRESH! Born out of our love of food and hospitality, Kaiser Grille has been synonymous with quality and value for over twenty years in the Coachella Valley. Founded by Kaiser Morcus in 1992, Kaiser Grille quickly became a hotspot for locals and visitors alike. After a ten year hibernation in Palm Desert, his son, Eric is taking the helm in his new restaurant. We are located at the former Chop House location in Palm Desert. Fresh from a remodel and menu change, we are located just a few blocks away from where it all began over twenty years ago. Yet, as we all get better with age, we hope that this time of rest has given us more passion and inspiration to provide more enjoyment for your dining experience.
