Nevada City, CA
I have to agree with Tasha P.'s review, the previous owner's didn't get it right. We live in the area and had been waiting for the new owners to reopen the 5 Mile House. The wait was worth it. We visited in early Nov. 2009 after they had been open a week or so. The new owners got it right! The menu is just the right mix of roadhouse offerings. There is something for everyone from steaks and chops to salads, burgers and pizza. We opted for a burger and pizza and were delighted with the food. Our food server was pleasant, attentive and efficient. Unfortunately, we didn't have room for the mouth-watering sounding desserts. One suggestion: we hope the new owners will add an imported light calorie beer, such as Amstel Light, to their bar offerings. Aside from the good meals and service, the environment is appropriately casual and welcoming. We are heading back this weekend to try their other offerings.
