    When we asked for allergy menu our waitress, Kathleen, said no, but I can adjust anything to meet your needs. To which my husband replied "she just iput out a challenge". I'm allergic to gluten, dairy, soy, most of the night shades, garlic and onions. Kathleen got really excited as she designed a dish especially for me: gf pasta with olive oil, artichoke hearts, chicken, olives, and salt and pepper. The pasta itself wasn't great, but the enthusiasm and effort put into it made it all worth while. The best part of the meal, however, was dessert. After saying she had nothing for me to eat, and then describing wonderful cheesecakes and tiramisu to the rest of my party, she came out with a yummy looking ice cream Sundae and slice of cheesecake for them. She then placed a spoon in front of me and produced a cup of blood orange sorbet from behind her back. It was the most delicious sorbet I've eaten, and I enjoyed it even more because of the surprise. We have decided to make this a destination when we're driving up or down I5, and time our trips so we can eat dinner there.

    Great waitress accommodated me with chicken breast with pesto sauce, tastey broccoli, roasted red peppers & giant bowl of salad. Had cheesecake minus crust for dessert. Husband had rib eye & a layed lemon Creme cake for dessert. A true hidden gem in a small town.

    Two excellent choices along with staff that helped verify all of my food was gluten free. The pasta was amazing.

    They don't have a gluten free menu but our waitress, Tasha, was awesome. She suggested chicken with pesto, red potatoes, and steamed vegetables which wasn't even on the menu. It was very tasty.
