Always love the atmosphere here. Server was really attentive. We got the Traditional Nachos which I thoroughly enjoyed and shared the Shrimp San Francisco which we thought was a little bland. Sauce needed more seasonings or cheese or something.

This was my second visit. My first visit was for dinner but this time was for a birthday lunch. I love the atmosphere of wood and mirrors....it makes the place seem larger but still very cozy at the same time. We had a reservation...our hostess was great.....very attentive and knew the menu very well. I settled for the Hot Vegetable... More

I tagged along with my husband for a business dinner. The menu was very diverse including everything from hamburgers to filet Mignons. The man bun server wasn't the friendliest or the most efficient but he wasn't the worst. The Filet was cooked perfect Pittsburgh style & very succulent. My husband had a slab of ribs & said they were awesome.... More

The best salads in town can easily feed two people. Good, fresh items that will fill anyone and serve as lunch next day

I've been here twice before for lunch. The food was very good. I went on a Saturday for dinner. I ordered a ribeye medium well, it was black on the outside, well done on the inside, and had a lot of fat. The waiter didn't ask any questions about how it was. I will go back, but will not order...

We dropped in for the first time and were a little leery because the parking lot was less than half empty. The food was excellent and the service was just the best ever. We had several changes and Joshua N. was always delighted to help up.

Have traveled numerous times from Birmingham to Cashiers. Friend of a friend recommended that we stop here for lunch. Was a great suggestion. Restaurant is located very conveniently to I85. The restaurant is large, clean & bright. Six of us ate lunch. Three had the California Dreaming salad, one the steak salad, one the Caesar salad and one a club... More

Our family loved all the options on the menu. You can't go wrong with the croissant appetizer. We had a shrimp po boy, steak sandwich, bbq nachos and prime rib sandwich. All four of us were very happy with our selections, especially the tasty large helping of French Fries. The wonderful service only added to the experience.

California Dreaming is a hidden gem in Duluth. Nice decor inside with friendly staff. Great variety in menu items. All three of us had different dishes all were excellent. Slightly higher prices but worth it. I look forward to another visit while here.

Thank Dee W
