The salad was great but I cannot abide paper plates, plastic cups and plastic forks. It probabaly costs too much to have nice looking dishes even if they aren't glass. The salad lost some of the flavor due to the serving dishs. Sad!

Took our parents to lunch today at Old California Mining Co. Very nice atmosphere and Joshua, our server, was excellent. Food was good. Good portions. And hot. They have gravy for my French fries. That always makes me happy. Nice lunch menu.

For a place that was supposedly re-done, it was okay. Had the ribs, with a baked potato, and seasonal veggies. The beer was cold and the ribs were served hot with BBQ sauce. Not too much was memorable for our visit to this place, but...More

Everything was delicious and well-priced. Filet mignon cooked perfectly. Smoked chicken like never before - smoky flavor and moist. Best ever. Daughter and grandson split the chicken and tri-tip. Plates were clean at the end but we still sampled desserts. Could not finish but oh...More
