This is a beautifully decorated place. Four of us had lunch on Thursday, March 20, 2014. It was a lovely day and we sat on the patio/deck. Even that was done nicely.

The food came out slowly, with minor mishaps. Otherwise, it would've been a "5 stars" reviews.

The food was very good. I had the soup and salad - the "soup" was a very meaty chili. The toast was delicious and the fruity salad very nice.

Not an easy restaurant to find, but really worth a try!

Good dinner, weak happy hour .Drinks and wine prices seem to take away from the idea of happy hour. But the food was good. Had a great prime rib and mac and cheese. Most of old town Temecula was a real tourist trap. This was a great spot for us.

First visit and it was a great experience. Delicious appetizers, the ahi tuna and bacon wrapped scallops, both nicely presented and good! Nice atmosphere, great service, friendly waitress and waiter. Happy hour specials and a full menu. We had the blackened swordfish tacos . Would go back again.

After enjoying the Saturday market, we discovered Gambling Cowboy nestled on the third floor at Fifth and Front Street. We chose to sit on the outdoor patio overlooking the town, where cool breezes kept us comfortable on a hot day. I had the Salmon Chophouse Salad and my wife had Cowboy Breakfast Burrito, both delicious and savoury. The seats were very comfy and the service excellent..

I have been here twice when I have travelled to Temecula. I have been very pleased both times. The most amazing one was being there on a Sunday late afternoon. They have a Sunday Prime Rib special, sold by the ounce. There is a 12 ounce minimum, however, at $1.50 per ounce for a 12oz. prime rib, that is a heck of a good deal for the hungry cost conscious diner. And seriously who isn't these days. Also this is not an a la carte deal this is a full meal deal, even a better value. The food is excellent, everyone was very pleased with a nice variety of meals ordered from prime rib to burgers, ribs and appetizers. Everything was well prepared and served in a timely fashion from very friendly wait staff. We could not be more pleased.
