It's called the Nut House because the floor is covered with peanut shells. Large bar with a dive bar feel. It gets pretty crowded in the evenings and it can be tough to get a drink.

I didn't like this place at all. It was extremely noisy and dark on a Friday night. They offer a pool table, food and drinks. I just ordered a coke and drank it outside. Would certainly not want to come back here - not even...More

It's not a fancy bar, actually far from it but it has a good feel to it. A lot of characters, chatty people, pool tables - what else do you need. It was the first place we discovered in the area and one we visited...More

This place should be shut down by the health inspector. Not sure when the last time they cleaned the place was but if the attitude of the bar tenders is any indication it was probably in the late 80's. If you're looking for terrible service,...More

Foods could be better. I ate there twice. First time it was good and the other time it was terrible. Stopped eating there since then. But may eat again.

This is one of the bars I like. Stand at the bar, have a beer with your customer and draw the next big thing on a piece of paper. People have been friendly around the place and you get to know local people.

Is this the California equivalent of Raffles in Singapore with monkey nut shells thrown on the floor. This is an uber cool bar with pool tables and food. Really enjoyed this place for a nice evening out. Recommended with loads of places to eat afterwards

My son-in-law has celebrated his last four birthdays in Antonio's. I had heard so much about Antonio's I wanted to experience it for myself. I had chicken fajitas - they were well seasoned without being overly spicy and the portions were HUGE. Service was good...More

A noisy dive bar where you get your free peanuts from the gorilla in the corner. Once done with your peanuts you throw the shells on the floor. I don't recommend you wear your best clothes when coming here because of the peanut dust
