We ate dinner there on my Birthday and the next night. Two great chicken dishes. The Marsala was to die for. Very friendly, and efficient waitstaff. The only negative was the pasta was over cooked.

My husband and I stopped in after riding our motorcycles and were so surprised at how delicious the cheeseburger was. Flavorful and juicy. I'm sure most people pass right through this quaint old town on their way to Nevada city but this is worth the...More

I ordered a bacon cheese burger and it was delicious! Nice and juicy! But the reason I am giving the place three stars is because my husbands food was bad. He ordered a double cheeseburger and it was burnt so badly that it was barely...More
