This place is a home-town eatery. I had a bacon cheese burger with onion rings. The toppings all come on the side and they were very generous with the cheddar cheese and thick bacon. The onion rings were some of the best I've ever had. Breaded and crispy, not greasy at all. Very similar to Red Robin's onion rings, which... More

I always try to stop at these one-off, family owned restaurants when traveling. Lawrence's interior had just enough updates to make it feel contemporary and a lot of details to let you know it has a colorful history. Food and service were very good as well. Worth a stop off of the freeway if your travels take you through King... More

We walked over to Lawrence's from our motel. The friendly waitress informed us that she had just sested a party of 18 in a back room and service might be slow. We stayed anyway. The service was not slow at all. The food was coffee shop fare and we were quite satisfied.

We stayed at the Keefers Inn and headed over for dinner on a Saturday evening. The interior is a bit simple. The food was ok and the chicken linguine Alfredo better than the tilapia. The prices are reasonable but the service was a bit slow.

This is a hidden jewel. My husband and I stopped here to eat breakfast on our way home on the 101. It was great. Service was good. Food very fresh. Hospitality is amazing. Very family friendly. I highly recommend if you want almost home cooked meal😄

This restaurant might be the most under-rated place in King City. I have eaten there multiple times and am always delighted. Their salads are all fresh and large. The sandwiches are made from scratch and are very good. Dinner is another matter. A basic meal is always available, and always good. However, the dinner service could use a bit of... More

Good basic food, including a great salad, with reasonable prices. An influx of wildfire firefighters delayed service one evening that we were there!

The restaurant is next door to the Keefer's Inn where we stayed for 2 nights. The menu is quite extensive and service is very quick, We used the restaurant both nights of our stay as it as it was convenient and reasonably priced.
