    My wife and I had dinner to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary dinner on our weekend getaway to the Monterey/Carmel area. We enjoyed the special 50th anniversary three course meal. We started with the delicious clam chowder which was served hot and was very yummy matched with the nice bread that was served. My wife had the chicken and I had the sanddabs. The chicken was free range and hormone and antibiotic free while my sanddab was wild caught. Both were very tasty and cooked just right. To finish off the meal we each had the mixed fruit pie ala mode. Nice ending to a nice evening. Jessica, our server was outstanding and helpful throughout the meal.

    The restaurant is the club house of the golf course. The service was really bad. Very unattentive. The wine prices were very reasonable though and the flatbread we had was tasty. Many better options in the area.

    We had a very good dinner at Edgars the other night. We ordered the 2 entrees for $50, which includes soup or salad and one desert. The salads were very unique and fresh and the entrees were quite good as well. We ended the meal with a strawberry rubarb pie served warm with ice cream, which was fabulous. I had the sand dabs and my husband had the grass fed burger. Both entrees were solid and dependable. I think I would try something different the next time....they also had a ravioli and a roasted chicken includes on the 2 for $50 entrée & salad & desert special. Those are the only four entrees on that special. There are many other good things on the menu as well. The salads were really the highlight.....and the desert!

    Our #1 reason for choosing to eat at this establishment was bc it had outdoor seating with outdoor heaters & fire pits that was dog friendly to well-behaved pets. The service was outstanding and the views of the golf course was pleasant. We will definitely return to Quail to golf and have another meal with our dogs in the future!

    My first time here. My host recommended the sand dabs and gave me a taste. They were tender and buttery, not heavily breaded, and well worth ordering. My entrée, the chipotle seafood, was well-prepared and not overly spicy, although it was probably too hot for most palates. My favorite item from the menu was the clam chowder, with great flavor and texture, and served with a helping of bacon.

    My family are traveling from Australia and wanted a nice Christmas lunch. We booked Edgar's as we were staying at nearby quail lodge. The food was beautiful, the wines good, and the service great. With young children the staff were accommodating and whilst a nice restaurant felt fine to have children there too. Thank you for the great lunch.

    We came for lunch and figured it was a good pick due to high reviews and location to golf course. We were wrong. Quiche was cold (even after re-heating), we were ignored by waiter when he started gushing over his regulars and the only nice part was that the regulars were fairly friendly. We will not return.

    Sam, our server was wonderful. He made the experience for us. He went out of his way to make sure everything was to our liking and when the dessert didn't measure up, for us, he took it off our bill. By the way, the lunch was great too. Flat bread pizza to start and then sand dabs. Oh my they were cooked to perfection!

    Food here is locally sourced and lovingly prepared - right down to the condiments. They make their own ketchup, jams and jellies. The sweet potato fries are delicious and the apple pie (with homemade vanilla ice cream) is worth the calories. The kale salad was beautiful and delicious.

    We have eaten here many times, and service is always SLOW! The food is good to very good, depending upon what you order. Steak & lamb were well prepared. The Sand Dabs were drenched in sauce, which took away from the dish. Our server was friendly and capable. It must be some sort of a hold up in the kitchen (?)

    We happened to be in the area test driving cars, so chose Edgar's for lunch in between cars. Bit of an old crowd in the main restaurant. We opted to sit outside and service was pretty relaxed. We were in no hurry, so it wasn't a problem. Had lovely food, I had the sand dabs and the accompanying vegetables were delicious.

    We last had dinner at the Quail and one of the memorable experiences was the table side Caesar salad, as well as the ambiance and the dinner. Unfortunately, we were not aware that that restaurant was The Covey, which apparently no longer exists. Edgar was a typical country club locale that provides breakfast, lunch and dinner complete with big screen TV's so you don't miss a minute of whatever sporting event you desire. Wasn't what I was expecting on several levels. For what it is, Edgar's is fine.

    This was our first visit and it was terrible. They appeared to be doing some experimentation with some of their menu items. They now have sandabs with bones instead of boneless. The steak was terrible. Tough and very salty. Server was great but that did not make up for this terrible disappointment.

    Party of 7 for dinner. 3 couples, 1 single. Food was good. They gave us a little room to ourselves. Bar area was almost emoty. Server was good until dessert time. He totally forgot one of 3 desserts ordered. We had to find him to reorder. He presented 1 check to the table and we told him when we ordered that we wanted separate checks. He was baffled by the equest and it took almost 15 minutes for him to divide total and present checks to guests.

    We were visiting my mother, who lives nearby, and looking for a good place to eat that wasn't overly expensive. My mother said that many of her friends recommended Edgars so we went. The only difficulty we had was finding the correct entrance to the parking lot in the dark. The food was superb. My nother and I had the half-portion of sand dabs, which was still quite a bit of food. They were cooked to perfection. My husband had a dish made with pasta, beef and Guinness ale that also said was excellent. The restaurant was very quiet and there was a fire in the fireplace. The service was terrific. The wine list is rather short, but good enough to find something that you want. We were very happy with our experience.
