We had potato skins for the appetizer and split small stakes with a dinner salad and drinks. we were surprised by the bill, less than $50. That is better than some of the theme restaurants in town.

The food is American fare featuring steaks, sandwiches, fish and salads. We particularly like the grilled artichokes. Restaurant staff are always glad to see you.

One of the best steak places in Santa Maria area. We usually come for dinner, but we're invited for lunch and it didn't disappoint. Good portions, very tasty, service was timely.

That open face rib eye sandwich was excellent! It was fork tender, perfectly seasoned, juicy and more than enough...I will definitely be back! There was a group of us and every meal was excellent. The Prime Rib French dip on foccacia bread, melt in your mouth!

We had dinner here as another website indicated it as being one of the top restaurants in Santa Maria. The food was fairly good. I had the steak sandwich, a salad, and potatoes au gratin.
