This was such a great find. Loved the rustic character of the restaurant and the view from way up on the hill was fantastic. The salad bar was full of goodies and everything was fresh. The cheese bread that comes to the table is a really tasty addition. My husband opted for the ribs which were wonderful. They were nice... More

I loved the view of this place and booked this place for my sister's birthday. I called in advanced several days and requested for a window seating. The person on the phone told me that they cannot guarantee so I canceled the booking with her. After hearing that I was going to find another place, she confirmed that she will... More

Second time for a banquet here. First time we had canned vegetables, rubber chicken, over salted gravy, and bad mashed potatoes. This time the vegetables were fresh, the chicken was still rubber, the gravy was still over salted, and the potatoes were marginally better. Go here for the view, not the food.

I've been here a few times over the decades and remember the food being better. The steak was tough and vegetables overcooked. Overall it is fine to go with a group and enjoy the views, which are lovely overlooking the Pomona Valley. Fine Dining it isn't.

The views are great and it is a fun place to eat. Food is very average and expensive. The steaks are my least favorite.

Anyone who reviews this eatery above 1 star needs some couch time with a psychiatrist. I had the NY Strip for $32 and it was a tough, flavorless, piece of meat. Even though it has been 30 years since I dined at a Western Sizzler or Bonanza Steakhouse, you can get a better steak at those restaurants than at the... More

We love the salad bar, steaks, cocktails and service. The view out over the valley is awesome. This is our favorite place to eat when we come here from Texas.

The sampler appetizer plate is great fried calamari, coconut shrimp, chicken strips, buffalo wings, and I believe some onion rings thrown in as well. Enough for 2. Do not miss out on the terrific cheese bread. Been going there for 30 plus years. My Favorite is shrimp scampi none like it. Super rich, floating in a garlic butter sauce, topped... More
