Consistently good food, with huge portions. Owner waits the tables and is friendly and efficient, doesn't let a coffee cup go empty. On Saturdays, get there early or expect to wait for a table.

We were looking forward to this restaurant, given the positive reviews, but ended up disappointed. We were initially told we’d have a five minute wait for a table, but it turned out to to be 20 minutes. That part was acceptable. What was not acceptable...More

Service can be slow when house is packed. But the wait is worth it. Stop here for lunch on the way back to Bay Area from Palm Desert. Fabulous scenery.

Went for breakfast before heading to JT NP. Had spinach omelet and he had veggie. Both were sooo good, you won't leave hungry. The place is small but you can wait your table outside. Highly recommended, would come again.

I fell in love with this place. The personnel is wonderful and the food is just what you want when you think of a typical american dinner by the road. Highly recommended for your post-hiking-in the park energy recovery session.
