We capped off a lovely day in Julian with dinner at the best restaurant in Julian. Ate outside by the fire pit. It was a Sunday evening and not crowded. Had scampi which was delicious.

We went for lunch on a beautiful day. The service was good and the food was average. The main thing we liked was the pleasant, outdoor seating. This is an old house and the inside dining area was quite quaint. Perhaps dinner would be better.

Came here for Dinner Sunday evening, up here for the weekend. Service was great, food(must try gumbo) was excellent. Was moderately busy, but service staff very attentive. Definitely worth a visit when you are up in Julian.

Stopped for lunch. Limited menu. Patio dining on plastic tables and chairs had a pleasant setting....inside dining also available. Salads and sandwiches were OK, but totally uninspiring, lacking in presentation and flavor. Hostess and server were nice, friendly.

We were a hungry and tired party of 7 that showed up without a reservation on Sun night at 7:30 pm . The servers seemed nice but the hostess had a rude and very poor style of communication. Essentially she refused to seat us which...More

I discovered this restaurant eight years ago. It’s in a quiet little town in an old house. They have quite an extensive menu including delicious home made soup. The staff was accommodating and attentive. I have a wheat allergy and although they don’t have gluten...More
