Nice seating in the restaurant. Prices are in the upper range but might be normal for the very touristic city. Had some pasta which was plenty and would have been generally good if it had not been drowned in a sea of oil. Had to...More

Best band I've seen in Nevada City. Hope to see them again. Had a nice time with friends. We left and came back. No other place seemed as much fun as this place.

A bit expensive but if you want to splurge thIs may be your place. Visited twice recently and they have really made some improvements. Food quality is excellent and the service is wonderful. While there is always fondue available, check some of the nightly specials.

Long time classic restaurant and part of the NC culture. Great bar and live music. I’ve been going here since the 1970s and i still love it. Restaurant menu is steak, seafood and fondue. Fantastic wine list. In the heart of historic downtown Nevada City.

Interesting decor. Menu items seemed pricey. The beer and wine selection is limited. Check their calendar for live music in the bar.

We hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner here for 42 guests in the Tree Room. The food and service was impeccable.

We enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. Get there early as some items will be sold out later in the evening, prime rib for example. We will be back,

I’m not sure. We had a salad, but it was a group deal for a wedding party. Just call them!

Yes, "smart casual" is probably the way to go, however, for those in shorts and a t-shirt you will not feel uncomfortable or out of place (especially in the bar).

Yes, they can absolutely accommodate large parties. Please contact Carissa, our general manager, to make arrangements. She can be reached at 530-265-9093.
