The tri tip sandwich appitizer was to die for!
The soups were good but too thick, maybe it was the hour we went in that they had been setting for awhile??
The Sirloin was a little tough and when mentioned to the server she didn't seem to worried about it. (other than that incident the service was fantastic - team work among the servers was present so everything ran very smoothly) The fresh salad (sorry the name has escaped me) with mandarin oranges, raisins and citrus dressing was fantastic it was at first almost sour then moved to sweet with a creamy finish in every bite.
The deserts were monster-ish! The I declair is an giant eclair the size of a small loaf of bread or a pan of meat loaf, it was fantastic! It had the best filling i have ever tasted with vanilla ice cream under neath and the chocolate on top was hot fudge, with loads and loads of whip cream. The chocolate chip cheese cake was delicious as well.
As I walked out i noticed that their chocolate cake had won many of awards nation wide! It looked great, many layers with whole pecans all over the frosting
With many restaurants in the area (Torrance) you would think they would have better food. I had the 24oz prime rib. I should have retured it as soon as I took the first bite. I was hungry and fought my way through it, my jaw got a good work out. Now I know why I haven't been there in a long time.
We always take our friend from San Pedro there for lunch/dinner treat
when ever we get together...we absolutely love it...everything we have
tried on the menu was great...we have been there about 25 times...
I love the Chicken Pot Pie, Liver & Onions, Fried Chicken other dinners, plus the salads, appetisers zucchini's, plus...I want to work my way thru the
entire menu...all has been great.
My husband loves the Cashew Chicken Salad Sandwich and Fish & Chips,
Best Chicken Ceasar Salad he's ever had. Our friend's most favorite salad
is the Cobb Salad best of all with Blue Cheese Dressing...but also fell in
love with the Liver & Onions dinner, Chicken dinners and Pot Roast dinner.
We also do the CJ in Carlsbad everytime we go down there...a happy
destination! Never disappointing...and just discovered another outlets
in Northridge and Montrose the 2 closest to our home in Hollywood.
So please put one in Hollywood!!!! and make us super happy and we will
turn on all our neighbors in town!!!
This restaurant is one of our favorites. We used to meet up there after work as a group, go there post movie, post golf, pre anything you get the idea. We go here a lot.
We went again last night, Our server cruised by as happy hour was ending so I tried to get the group order in even though some people were still milling around outside. The server explained that she could only bring one drink per person. I told her I understood and it was fine. Moments later here came the manager to explain again. I told HER I understood and it was fine. They were kind enough to put the drinks though ordered post happy hour on the discount anyway. What customer service!
We enjoyed the food as usual it was exceptional even if they give you enough for an army.
I do have to say thought that the new seared tuna appetizer was not that great. It was exactly as described in the menu but not at all what I was expecting. Seared to me brings images of something hot on the outside and cool in the middle. Not so here, this is a chilled dish. It probably would have been great if I knew that up front.
