Gift Certificates — Super Saturday Certificate Sale!

Gift certificates make great gifts, and we sell them in any amount. You can come in and pick one up, or order and pay for them by phone or email which we will send directly to the recipient. Sale on gift certificates every Saturday during the Christmas season — 11/30, 12/6, 12/13 and 12/20 — pay $100 for $119.77 (we opened in 1977) in gift certificates. ¬†We are open on Saturdays from 11:30am to 10pm.

Health Certificate

Madera County has instituted a new grading system for food service operations. We are a pilot facility for the new program and participated in the development. Inspection was on 10/13/17 and we received an A grade. This new program is a much more thorough inspection than what was previously done. It lasted two hours with 3 inspectors. Letter grades are posted, by the County, on the front door of establishments. On the posting is a QR code that lets you scan and read the details of the inspection. After the initial inspection businesses are given two weeks to fix violations. The Health Dept revisits and can upgrade the letter grade. The goal is that all foodservice establishments in Madera County will be inspected and graded.


As we have done every year since we opened in 1977, we will be serving Cioppino during the month of December. Our version of this California/Italian classic is a half Dungeness crab with shrimp, clams, mussels and fish in a garlicky red wine and tomato broth.

Giving Tree

Another holiday tradition here is the Giving Tree for Madera Christmas Baskets. Our Christmas tree will have tags with a child’s age and Christmas toy wish. You take the tag and return with the gift and the tag securely attached to it by Dec 19th. The program will make sure the gift gets to the child by Christmas Day. Last year over 300 gifts were collected here.

20-30 Club Takeover Night
Wednesday, December 10th

Come in for dinner and drinks and we will give 15% of your total bill to the Madera 20-30 Club. They will use that money for the Randy Tordini toy drive to buy gifts. We look forward to seeing you here in the holiday season. We are grateful for your business and thank you for your support.
