We went for our anniversary ( again). High class food and drink in a real nice setting. Good service. Not cheap but a place for a special occasion (at least for us). Stroganoff and pork were our choices and we had deviled eggs and sprouts....More

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

Right across the street from The Depot restaurant, and owned by the same people, this hidden gem is located inside the old jailhouse. The food is prepared with the same thought and care as the Depot. Don't miss it!

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.
