14 Best American Restaurants in Grass Valley

Golden Gate Saloon Bar • $$
212 W Main St, Grass Valley

“What a treat! Will definitely return. Located in the quaint Holbrooke Hotel conveniently located in the heart of historic Grass Valley California, the renovated restaurant is a treat for the eyes. The service was friendly, helpful and memorable. But the food....rare to find these days an Elk sirloin prepared medium was incredible. We also enjoyed the duck confit pappardelle pasta and Caesar Salad. Be sure to try the house special Manhattan cocktail too. The rich, delectable dark chocolate tort was over the top; of course! Go, Go, Go! Don't miss it.“

Also had the chicken pot pie soup to go (omg..delicious!), and my friend ordered a slice of caramel pecan pie to go. Strong coffee! They have indoor and outdoor seating plus picnic tables in the grassy area. They are known for their delicious pies! Its located on colfax highway with relaxing views in the back of the restaurant. Even with inflation its still somewhat reasonable nowadays! Melanie our server was friendly and on top of everything!Its a great stop to unwind and relax!“

“We attended a fund raiser at Wild Eye Pub recently. Great venue for 50+ guests, and good service. The garlic fries were just that: garlicky! My only disappointment was the teriyaki chicken bowl. Although there was a nice sliced chicken breast on top of the rice, their "veggies" consisted of 80% grilled onions, 10% carrots, and 10% red bell peppers. Step it up, Wild Eye, you can do better!“
