We love to eat here when we stay at the campground next door. I recommend the tri tip sandwich or pesto chicken sandwich for lunch/dinner. And upgrade to the waffle fries! And their blue cheese dressing is the best. For breakfast, crab cakes Benedict is delicious, as are all of the Benedict options. Can't go wrong with the chicken fried... More

We camped near here a couple years ago and are planning a trip this year, too. We enjoyed SEVERAL meals here and it was awesome! We have five kids and some restaurants assume we will be a bother or treat the kids like babies. These folks treated us like a fun group of people and we really enjoyed ourselves! To... More

A little known secret is the RR Pub serves an awesome breakfast on weekends albeit a little later than most. Having had a least a half dozen breakfasts (10 am and after) at this wondrous little hole in the wall. I have never left disappointed. Most memorable was the Moco Loco a Hawaiian favorite and it has stuck in my... More

We were looking for a light but quick dinner after way too much food over the last few days. Someone suggested this Pub would be just right. Were they ever wrong. We had a couple of burgers which were huge and very good. Very good service and a good selection of beers but if you are looking for a light... More

We stopped here on a recent visit to the area. We'd been driving and seeing the redwoods nearby and thought it would be a good stop, based on TA reviews. The dining area was almost empty around 1 pm, but we figured it was early in the week. We noticed that it had been featured on Guy Fieri's DDD (no... More

This looked like a little pub from the outside, but boy did the food live up to the reviews! Great food, pulled pork made in house, clam chowder, prime rib sandwich, and tri tip sandwiches. Really good, and everyone was very friendly. Great after wine tasting and seeing the scenery!

For several years I drove right past this place on my way to the Sonoma Coast. Finally, my son recommended it after he tried it based on the Drive-Ins, Diners, and Dives list. From the road it does look a little like a Dive, but, oh, the food is terrific! The pulled pork sandwich calls my name; the vegetarian sandwich... More

We went to this place because it was on the Drive-In, Diner, Dive list. The food was just ok, but enjoyed sitting outside on their nice patio.

How can I say anything disparaging about this place when they treated us so kindly and so friendly. I have to give the staff five stars for service, attending to us, checking back at just the right time, and all with such sweetness and kindness. We ordered a couple of cocktails, on a wonderfully pleasant long weekend night, the kind... More

The owner and her staff were very nice and very good at accommodating a party of 10 who just dropped in. The meals were really delicious and exceptionally tasty. The service was enjoyable along with being fast and friendly. It earned its spot on DD&D.
