“Our favorite day trip.”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

We live in the Sacramento area and have been coming to Susan's Place in Sutter Creek for several years now. For us, the trip up Hwy 16 is very beautiful, relaxing and it's just the perfect distance for a nice drive and a great lunch at Susan's.
Susan's is a unique patio setting with trellis ceilings and Wisteria Vines hanging down. Plenty of ceiling fans and it's always a nice, cool time while dining there. The food is something you wouldn't expect in an old gold mining town in the foothills. It's Mediterranean style mostly and not same things you usually find in most restaraunts. It's always great!

“Beautiful spot!”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Susan's Place is great oasis! We went there on a warm evening and sat on their gorgeous patio with old Wisteria vine alive with flowers overhead!
Local wines by the glass or bottle, great fresh and well prepared foods. Will happily return!

“Good Lunch”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

A very good lunch. The ambience is a bit funky. The food was well prepared and very flavorful. Wish the weather was better as they have a wonderful outdoor patio area with grape vines over head.

“Susan's Place did everything right and we had a great dinner.”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

There is a shortage of good restaurants in the Sutter Creek/Amador County area (other than Taste, which is very good). But now we have another good choice, Susan's Place. We spend a weekend in the area every March for the Amador County wine event. This year we tried Susan's Place and were pleasantly surprised. Even though they were very busy, the server kept us updated as to when our table would be available. As soon as we sat down, we got our drinks, placed our order (which came out quickly), and were brought fresh, warm bread. Several of us ordered the Greek salad, which has options for 3 dressings and 2 cheeses. The salads were fresh, interesting, and delicious. A great healthy choice after drinking wine all day:) The grilled salmon was also very good. But again, I have to mention that the service was excellent. I read some reviews that said the service was not good. I think the owner (Susan?) is working hard to make sure that doesn't happen anymore. She won us over. There was a lot of variety on the menu, so many more things to try.
