My girlfriend and I went with my 6 week old son and the noise level is very tolerable. As opposed to just about every other restaurant in the 209 (red robin, Denny's, chili's, Olive Garden, etc.) I had a mini 'bj's favorite' deep dish pizza (10.95) and it was amazing. My girlfriend had a veggie burger with crispy fries (9.50) which she also loved. Overall it was a dining experience unequaled by any other I've had in the Central Valley and I grew up here. No other place has the delicious food combined with the awesome service by waiters at such an affordable price. This is our new go to spot and you really are cheating yourself if you don't give it a try. Truly great dining experience. P.S. The interior is really nice, even the bathrooms!
This is a great place for friends and family or just you, the prime rib is superb as are many other entrees. I love the salad bar and the Low Cal plate of broiled fish with plenty of veggies and fruit. I do notice that the fish portions have been reduced to about half of what they were on the low cal plate and that may be a good thing! once a month they have a great seafood buffet but the head of that dept. won't allow you eat in the bar like they do with regular orders that is a definite drawback for them. The bartenders are awesome so we like to dine there. The waitresses are also the best!
I went to The Velvet Grill and Creamery twice this past week. The first time, I had clam chowder and a grilled cheese sandwich and [mango?]raspberry sorbet for dessert. Good old fashioned comfort food! The second time, I had salmon with hollandaise sauce over sauteed spinach and veggies and rice pilaf, plus a side order of 4 garlic prawns. Everything was reasonably priced with generous proportions. I took a piece of the salmon home with me and ate it later on with pita crackers and neufchatel. The servers and other patrons were very nice. Please try 'em- they're really good!
