San Dimas?? Dinner for 6 Hungry Golfers

I will be playing golf at Via Verde Golf Club in two weeks on a Tuesday with some friends. We will finish up around six. Where would you recommend that we go to dinner. We all live in the southbay/westside so we are out of our area so to speak..

  1. You might like the Golden Spur in Glendora at 1223 E Alosta Ave. I've had some tasty meals there. You might need a reservation.

      Golden Spur is pretty good. I go there for lunch. Love the french onion soup and usually their fish specials are good too. Very Retro place. Leather booths big martini's. Have fun!

        look like the golden spur is liked by other hounds. still undecided anyone else like to chime in..

          Golden Spur is actually very good. I've not had a steak there I didn't like, and their garlic bread is mouthwatering. Good martini's, too!

    2. Try Little Tokyo in San Dimas. You may need a reservation for the sushi bar, but not the main dining room. portions are enormous!

      1. You might try Cask & Cleaver if you like steaks. I don't believe you need reservations for a Tuesday dinner. I don't know the cross street, but it is located on Arrow Highway in the Lowe's shopping center. Good luck.

          You might like Pinnacle Peak on Foothill in SD. They are known for their "cowboy steaks" - I don't think the ribs or chicken are anything special, but the beans and steak are delish.

        2. You could drop down the hill into La Verne and hit T. Phillips for steaks, sandwiches, and beer. Of the steakhouses already mentioned, I would take the Golden Spur over Cask 'n Cleaver or Pinnacle Peak.

          Something other than steak? Aoki for Japanese & suchi in La Verne, Warehouse for pizza & beer - or Pizza 'n Such in nearby Claremont if you'd like a more upscale pizza 'n beer experience, Grapevine for Mediterranean fare (on Foothill west of Wheeler), Vito's for Italian in Glendora on the corner of Route 66 & Amelia Ave. There's also Gambino's for Italian in La Verne who has just reopened after almost a year closed - they were fairly good before but I haven't had a chance to try to "new" Gambino's. They're in the Stater Bros. shopping center on the corner of Foothill and D Street.

            Yeah, Vito's, home of the enormous calzone!

          2. I'll admit that I know little of the geography out there, and I know you may have to jog down from above the 10 to the 60, but would the Dal Rae be on the way back west?

              Not really. It's pretty far out of the way.
