Ernie's of course can be found out at PGA West in La Quinta at the public clubhouse. It's really a great place to dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner (during the season). It kind of has a manly flavor to it and the food presentation is always outstanding. If you have out of town guests is is a great place... More

This restaurant has inside (rather noisy) and outside on the deck there are plenty of umbrellas so you can escape the sun. Try the tacos with tempura prawns sounds odd but great taste. A great view over the golf course.

First, the food we received as ordered was fabulous; however, the food received over cooked and missing extras was bad. The server tried to fix it, but 20 minutes later the replacement was overdue and we were ready to leave. The second drink order was completely wrong and overall, the service was super slow. Beautiful setting, fabulous menu that just... More

For years I was complaining, this venue is gorgeous , but the dinners were such a disappointment , well it's so much better today. I had the best lentil soup last Saturday , a meal by itself, tasting home cooked.

No more happy hour menu. The sea salt chips had no salt. The Cuban was tasteless. The Cobb salad was soso dressing was flavorless. Over priced for want it was. Will not be back when there are other great options. Try 26 at Mountain course. Mikasa Sushi!

Ernie's Bar and Grille in PGA West is in a public clubhouse. It has good food, but the view from the deck is fabulous. So relaxing to sit on the deck (get a table by the fire pit if you can) and look out at the lovely mountains and the fantastic golf course! The PGA streets provide a great place... More

Ate twice for lunch at Ernies. Had a selection of salads both times. Really appreciate the half-size portions and the great combos. The Asian salad and the Caesar were favourites. Lots of good choice for wines to pair with the light meals. It is delightful to be either inside or out and watch the golfers finish up their games! The... More

Ernie's has been one of my favorite places at PGA West to go for dinner since it is so close to home and I would meet many friends there. Their food, for the most part, had gone from fair to pretty darn good, especially the Fish and Chips which was one of my faves. A lot of the staff had... More

after a nice round at pga west courses, what better place to unwind than at Ernie's. Relaxed and always a good time here. Food and drinks are great. Awesome view of the course. Service can be slow sometimes but what's the hurry?

Located in the PGA West compound, this restaurant is a hot spot for golfers and locals. I was really not expecting much beyond the usual burger/taco fare typical of golf 19 hole restaurants. Not so fast. Ernie's is a tier or 2 better for sure. The wait staff is fast and pleasant and the food was hot and well-prepared. I... More
