Contemporary American
An eclectic menu featuring local and seasonal dishes prepared from scratch. Our menu is reflective of classic dishes prepared with a modern twist. Dine in a former concrete wine tank our relax on the patio with one of our craft cocktails. Menu favorites are our grilled steak of the night, pastas, scampi and our Sunday brunch is inspired by Southern American cuisine. We are on the Lodi Wine Trail and located just 1/2 mile from Hwy 88 in Lockeford which is centrally located half way between the San Francisco bay area and Lake Tahoe. **Sunday Brunch is temporarily discontinued

Outstanding food, fun atmosphere! We love all of our food but our Pomegranate Mules we’re poorly made and no copper mugs.
I had the GGB Burger it was one of the best I’ve ever had! My wife loved the Calamari Steak that was beyond tender. The Caramel Cake was amazing. Oh ya Mac n Cheese is a must.
Place is on the cold side so dress warm.

Went in after a very long work week. Was greeted and asked how are you before and conversation about dinner. Made me feel like I walked into my house and was greeted by my loved ones.
Please thank your staff.
I know where to end a tough week.
Many Thanks

Everyone we met here was friendly and welcoming. The in door dining is rather noisy, so it made it difficult to hear servers describe ample number of specials. We had salmon and venison. Both were outstanding. I will definitely return for another meal here.

I expected so much more. I was surprised that it qualified as an eatery. The house wine was fine, the salad was wilted, the pulled pork meal was poorly presented and tasteless. My hope is that the owners accept this criticism and improve.

The calamari & shrimp scampi were very good but the Angel hair pasta was flat & boring. The lasagna was served cold. After the server took it back to the kitchen and heated it up, it was very good. The garlic bread was very good.

The margarita was great.

The roasted chicken was mushy & not edible. A real disappointment.

Our first time going there and we were not disappointed. Food choices were great. I had french toast with a mimosa. Excellent !! My friend had cheeseburger with garlic fries. A place to go for special occasions or somewhere fun with family and friends. Outdoor seating is available but too cold for ourselves that day. Would recommend !!

Delicious!!!! Did not have spinach or the mushroom gravy for the grilled pork chop but the server was very gracious when she explained this to us. Not disappointed in the substitutions in any way!

Service was not good. We ordered appetizer and they forgot. It was served with the main course. Water and bread was served because we asked repeatedly.

The food was cold when served. We have been here several times. They take forever.

Our dining experience was excellent! The ambiance was beautiful, the food was great, the outdoor patio was cool and inviting. We were a party of 10 and our server was amazing and worked quickly to get our orders and food delivered to our table.

I would have given all 5 stars, however we waited longer then we should have to get our meals. The restaurant wasn't that busy at the time either.
The food was excellent when we finally got it. Gavin was our chef he did a wonderful job for us. There were four of us, we had the venison, 2 spinach salads with shrimp and a burger. For appetizer we had the cooked oysters. Our waitress Cassidy was very attentive.
We will definitely be going back. FYI...their alcohol is wine based. We had a bottle of the cab. It was great. I recommend this cute little hole in the wall establishment.

Slowest service ever. They were down to people so we understood but we waited 5 minutes to get noticed 15 before anyone came to our table another 15 for our bad wine. When we finally got our food was all cold.
