Forester Pub and Grill

We ate here based on others' reviews and we were not disappointed. We sat out on the back porch and were greeted promptly. We were looking for just a small meal and ordered tacos a la carte. They were delicious! The menu is large and varied and everyone around us mentioned to the waitress how much they enjoyed their food. It's one of the only places to eat in Camino and it is very good.

Heyday Cafe

Reviewed By Kip F - Sacramento, California

My spouse and I went out for lunch, and I ordered the Salmon Salad, with avocados, lime vinaigrette on the side, spinach, mushrooms, and a hot chocolate. Everything was delicious, tho they used to have a salad with candied walnuts, cranberries, blueberries and chicken, and that no longer is offered. My spouse had the Mango Free-range chicken Panini, which was terrific! The porter he ordered was expensive but good. I have not had a bad or only so-so meal here ever, and can definitely recommend it as a reliable tasty meal.

I like this place because you can make your burger as big or small as you want. Different kinds of fries, GF options, and according to my grandkids the best milkshakes. Nice little local place to have lunch.

Gold Vine Grill

Reviewed By YayoNorCal - Pleasant Hill, California

With so few restaurants in this rural area, it's hard to believe that one is really good! Gold Vine Grill would be great even if it had to compete in the gourmet ghetto! The choices are excellent and very well prepared; the service is down-home friendly; the prices are quite reasonable. And the wine -well, this is wine-country so the choices are wonderful.

We went there two nights in a row!

Considered Pollock Pines, but menu shows address as Camino. Location: First Pollock Pines exit US Hwy. 50 East toward South Lake Tahoe.

We had a delicious meal at this historic restaurant. I had the prime rib sandwich and it was simple but tasty; beef, cheese, grilled onions on sourdough toast. All the flavors, including the toast combined to make a satisfying meal. I also had a bowl of chili and it was some of the better chili that I've had. I also had a taste of the clam chowder (excellent) and the barley soup (very good). Their chocolate mousse dessert and chocolate suicide cake were not made there, but they were very good. Our server was very friendly and always made sure we had everything we needed. The real star of the show here, though, is the owner. She's a Korean woman who has owned it for about three years. It's clear she has built up a loyal following as she greeted many locals by name. This is a convenient stop just off Hwy 50.

Ordered Chicken fajita w/o pico de gallo and cilantro rice. Plate came with pico de gallo which apparently at this restaurant has jalapeños in it. They also gave me extra blackbeans. Lots of red and green peppers, lacking in onions. Tasty. Also served a nice assortment of salsas and warm bean dip with their chips. Very attentive staff. Clean interesting facility. Right in downtown Placerville.

New business in town. Run by veterans so it is on my go to list. Good alternative to P{pizza Factory, as the price for the similar pizza is less than half the price.

Went with a group for a Sunday Brunch. We had two egg choices, a wonderful Tri-Tip Scramble or a Mushroom/Potato Quiche, Sausage, Bacon, Potatoes, Fresh Biscuits, Fresh Fruit Bowl, Mini Muffins, a Crumb Cake or Cookies for Desert, an open coffee bar kept the coffee & tea flowing before, during, & after the meal.

Wonderful mountain ambiance in a modern log home. Besides the late week, weekend restaurant operation they are also a catering service, and events center known as Sierra Banquet Center. It would be a great place for a late Spring outdoor wedding.. They have outdoor tables available during fair weather. Ample parking on the grounds.

With the help of a mapping program you can drive right to their door.

I'd be delighted to go back if my grooup schedules another brunch there, or if i"m in that area looking for a meal..

CT has always been good since Chuck opened it and not must sticks around for long in Pollock. Since Chuck died and the new owner has taken over, it even went up another notch. Love the addition of Mexican food to our little town. Clean with good service.
