The tomahawk ribeye is amazing. We have never come close to finishing one. It lasts for three meals. The Caesar salad is fresh and with or without fresh anchovies. Don’t miss the dessert soufflés. Yummm.

If it weren't for comps, I would not have come here. There're other places way better than here to try around town in Valley Center, CA. I'm sure there are other tons of places to go. Do not waste your time & $$ here. Some...More
