Difficult to find as it is below another building but worth the search for the great food. The beef stroganoff is the best I have ever had. Bit pricey. Beer selection a bit wanting

It was nice to try a new restaurant while in Visalia. We started with drinks. The strawberry martinis was made with strawberry infused vodka. It was okay. The best part was the sugar rimmed glass which added much needed flavor to the martini. Sad to...More

We went here for Mother's Day. I don't just give away 5 star reviews, this place really deserves it! Wonderful start to a great day. Our server, Jarod, was the epitome of personalized service! Every dish, from the appetizers to the dessert was excellent.

I'm not sure who the builder was, but this restaurant was originally the Tulare County Jail, built in 1854. The jail cells were located downstairs where the restaurant is now located and the courthouse was upstairs.
