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 is understandable as they close at 8:00 pm . However the way she talked and seemed to have no convey no desire to want to help . When I inquired about if they were any other restaurants around she wasn’t even helpful with that information either . If you are in restaurant business besides good food , good service is equally important. This lady needs to learn the art of communication and I surely will not willingly want to come to this restaurant given how rude and unprofessional the hostess was !

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 free items listed, they made sure I had no problem eating. We had come into town the Back way from the Salton Sea so we were ready for a break. Our late lunch was great. Very quaint.

Nice menu, excellent food and great service!!! We arrived in Julian and needed to eat, and being Valentine’s Day we weren’t sure of the hours. They were very accommodating and welcoming!

Stopped there and had afternoon snacks. The candied-walnut salad and soup of the day, zucchini soup, yum were awesome!! The other person had the prime rib appetizers and enjoyed them! The restaurant is attractive, and it was a fun time!

When our usual lunch spot was found to be closed on our Tuesday visit to Julian we followed TA's recommendation to try the Julian Grille. It was a great recommendation. The setting was a 1920's residence complete with original hardwood floors. We sat in the porch where the sunshine was very welcome on a February day.

Our server, Rebeccca did a fine job and was very attentive but not overly so. She recommended the Chef's favorite, Chinese Chicken and Rice, which was very good. We also had the candied walnut salad and were not disappointed.

This place has been going for almost 30 years and is a fine anchor to be treasured by visitors to Julian who want a quaint dining experience. We'll be back.
