Old California Mining Company
The ever-popular Restaurant Row of San Marcos hosts this steakhouse, Old California Mining Company where guests enjoy a mining theme and huge portions of choice-cut meat. Rustic mining ambience characterizes this thematic restaurant. Dine among wagon wheels, mining lanterns and fresh flowers. Gaslight patio dining is available, located next to a large waterwheel and a giant tin can, plastered with the logo, Old California! For your meal, consider Rib Eye Steak, Center Cut Pork Chops or Bourbon Apple Chicken. Try the Boysenberry Cobbler for dessert.
If you want good service and good food i'd stay away from this place as far as possible. The hosts we're too busy talking to seat us, the servers would rather sit in the back and eat their own meals than serve us. They never refilled out drinks even when it was clear to them they we're empty. Our food has been sitting under the heat lamp for awhile because, it took forever and it was dry.
We showed up for lunch (7 of us) and waited 10 minutes to be seated when the restaurant was not busy. We were then seated in a section where no waitress was assigned so a girl came over & begrudgingly took our order. It took her 15 mintues to bring Ice Tea which we had to beg to be refilled and another 20 mintues to get one bowl of soup. Several of the orders were wrong, they never brough bread until someone asked near the end of the meal, food was plopped down & then she ran & closed the door behind her without checking to see if everything was okay. The bass was dry and, well, fishy (served spiced side down!!!), other than fishy it was tasteless and my friend's pulled pork was chopped, not pulled & just okay. Several people were not happy with their food (myself included) but a couple were. They had the trout almondine & the tri tip asada.
Personally, I will never go back, it took us an HOUR AND A HALF to be served & eat after we were seated and then our waitress came back with the checks but kept them in her pocket while she collected dishes. It took her another 10 minutes to come back with the checks. God Help anyone in a crunch for time.
Food was lousy, wait staff should all be fired and I cannot recommend this place to anyone. What a lousy experience!
I lived in the area for a long time and never heard of this place, but since the first time I went in, I have been hooked. The meat is top quality, the fish is prepared perfectly, there is literally something for everyone on the menu. Go try it now, the selection is amazing, I still havent tried everything.
My wife and I went there at close to a quarter of 10 p.m. on the 30th of Nov. We were greeted warmly, even though they were fixin to close. I had one of the best prime ribs since the last time I went to Ruth's Chris. Our waiter was Matthew, and he did an outstanding job. I will certainly go there again, soon.
This place rocks! I love the atmosphere and the great food. The smoker had my mouth watering from the parking lot. The servers were fast and friendly. I would highly recomend eating here. We will definitely be back. Their steaks are so tender and flavorfull. Try the red velvet cake, it's the best I've ever had.
its got great food and steak and its one of my girlfriends favorite restaurants to eat at everything is just great about this place great service and very realxing and enjoyable place to eat very comfortable environment
