mom's 90th birthday Dinner
What a great place !! we were visiting from San Diego for a sporting event at Sac State. Family and mom came from Sonoma for the day and we celebrated my mom's 90th birthday. It was a last minute reservation for 8. April set up up with a table in front of the fire place and brought out a birthday cake drink. Andrew was our waiter and did a fantastic job, always there when we needed, never needed to ask for anything. We all had different dinners and everyone said theirs was excellent!! all our different deserts were just and incredible. To top off the evening one of the owners brought over a bottle of champagne to celebrate.

My "Seal of Approval"
Our group of 8 enjoyed a very nice evening at this place. Several of us enjoyed a drink at the bar prior to being seated at our table. Nice bar, good drinks. The appetizers, the soups, and the entrees were all delicious. I'd like to thanks our server, Susan (who is actually the banquet manager), for taking such good care of us. "What ever it takes to make the customers happy" is apparently the case at Sheepherder Bar & Grille.

Worth Trying Out
A nice place to go for brunches. There was a few things I wasn't happy about during the brunch but overall not bad at all. It's a 7 out of 10.

The only problem was that I was given the wrong beer but that was later rectified. Nice atmosphere, lots of space. Underrated place.

Food & Service were EXCELLENT but it was cold/chilly where we were seated so our waiter turned down the A/C! :) It was my 50TH & my sister brought a cake & plates but the waiter said it was $1 per person whether he cut the cake or not. I didn't like that! :(

This Friday was a great day to go out with the work crew. It was really hot outside but the air conditioning was working great. The restaurant was surprisingly empty, maybe the heat was keeping everyone indoors at work.
The food tasted great, had appealing and novel presentation and was portioned large enough to blow anyone's diet. The restaruant was quiet enough that conversations flowed smoothly. The server was attentive but not imposing. It was hard to go back to work.

We enjoyed an excellent anniversary dinner on Saturday night! Our hostess and waiter were friendly and helpful. The live music (saxophone player and singers) were very good. The steak special and pasta with prawns were excellent. Overall we had a great experience at Sheepherder Bar and Grille!

Good Food @ Sheepherder
Overall our party of 4 was pleased. I had the salmon and although the fish was delicious the potatoes it sat atop of were over cooked and an odd accompaniment.
Susie or Susan, our server was FABULOUS and full of smiles!!!

Shepard's Pie at the Sheepherder!
Wow, it was really good, probably the best lamb I've had. Rich, deep sauce, yum! If staying at one of the nearby hotels, this place is a great option, and reasonably priced. Nice space, too. We intend to make a point of it to return.

Have been on more than one occasion. Experience has always been pleasant. Food is great and the service is as well. It's not the best place for children unless they can be relatively quiet.

Not good for quiet dining
The macaroni & cheese side and the hot sourdough bread were to die for!! The side salad was very good. The dining room was very nice. The chandeliers were beautiful. As the restaurant filled, it became difficult to hear; however it appeared people were enjoying themselves.Prices are not unreasonable. If you are looking for an energetic, environment with good food, I would recommend this restaurant.

Charm with atmosphere
Hadn't been to this establishment for a long time. Pleased to find the food was very good, and the atmosphere still has charm. Remember the old Sheephearder and loved the history feel of days gone by with cowboys and sheephearders sitting at the bar and in front of the wonderful fireplaces. The old bar is gone, but it is charming and the menu interesting and generous.

Always a Delight!
I love taking my staff to Sheepherder Bar & Grille at least twice a week. We can get through a meeting with a pleasant meal in no time at all. The service is ALWAYS efficient and the atmoshere is GREAT!!! IT's a win - win for me.

Sheepherder Bar & Grill
It's been about 25 yrs since I last lived in this area and went to Sheepherder's. Good to see that the quality hasn't changed.

I have been going here since I was a kid in the 80's. Always nice.

Good byt loud
We had a great meal, well-prepared and delivered hot & tasty. The only negative was the excessively loud partying from the bar area. We were there on a Friday evening and there was a group party of some sort. If the bar was more separated from the dining room it would be much more hospitable for someone wanting a quiet dinner.

The prime rib was great, as was the spicy tomato pasta. I recommend it.

I was a regular at the Origional Sheepherders and was not disappointed on this evening. All the food was very good and I especially liked the flavor and texture of the Prime Rib. The portion wasore than I could eat without bloating. Surprisingly everyone commented on the garlic potatoes.
