Just 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles is one of California's most impressive college towns, with seven prestigious colleges within walking distance of one another. Here at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, independent boutiques and a craft brewery coexist with over 80 restaurants and pubs, soothing day spas, and bicycle-friendly streets and trails.

Eureka Burger

A collection of America's best. Eureka! Features an elevated American selection of craft beer, whiskey, regional wine, & locally sourced ingredients.

Reviewed By kay k - Metro Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota

Fun, lively atmosphere and really tasty, well prepared food. Burgers are delicious, flavorful and perfectly cooked. Bakery quality poppy seed buns were a nice touch. The butcher's steak dip sandwich is also great. The Fresno Chile's added just the right amount of heat. Side salads were very good and fries were crisp and hot. We sat at the bar and enjoyed fast, friendly service.

Spaggi's

Reviewed By Frank P - Rancho Cucamonga, California

My wife and I always choose Spaggi's for our anniversary and birthday dinners. We have dined there on Christmas Eve as well. Chef Henry is a master and we always have an enjoyable dining experience. The specials are seasonal, creative and delicious. Very experienced wait staff.

50 Fifty

Reviewed By d2s1c2j - California, Maryland

We have been searching for a wonderful Thai cuisine restaurant in the Inland Empire, we were told about this place by a shop owner in the Claremont Village. Because of its name we have overlooked this place for many years. The dishes were tasty and generous with meat. My granddaughter is a Pad Thai connoisseur, when she gave me a thumb up it has to be good. The dinning area is well decorated and the service was very attentive. The price is reasonable. I strongly recommend this restaurant for those who looking for a good Thai restaurant.

The Hat

Reviewed By Paul C - Upland, California

Firstly this a really efficiently run place. There is an army of folks behind the counter who jump on your order and get it filled quickly.
The sandwiches are great - pastrami dip, burgers. The sides are huge! Fries, wet fries, chili fries, onion rings: you get a mountain. Each is at least a meal in itself or as a side bring 2 or 3 friends to share (or be sure to bring a huge appetite!).
May not be fine dining but a great place for a fast and tasty dinner!

Bardot Restaurant

A New-American dining experience in the Claremont Village with a touch of French flair. Drop in for friendly service, craft cocktails, scratch-made dishes, and the best patio in Claremont. Happy Hour Monday through Thursday 3-6pm at the bar, Brunch Saturday and Sunday until 3pm.

Reviewed By JenniKey - Fullerton, California

Loved, loved our luncheon at Bardot. We split the Spicy Ahi Tuna Tartare (as excellent as always--just the right amount of heat and amazing layers of flavors) and new-to-us Grilled Pears with burrata, Parma ham, arugala, balsamic reduction--which was a revelation. It's a new favorite and we're in a hurry to return to eat it again. The outdoor patio is lovely and the service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They can help you appreciate what is special about everything they sell. If you're looking for your next great cheese to go with your next great wine or a hostess gift or just a little something special for yourself, drop by the Cheese Cave. You'll never have grocery store cheese again.

Tutti Mangia

Reviewed By Gail S - Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania

Food was delicious and well-presented, and the service was perfect. We came for dinner Saturday night and it was pretty noisy - partly from the live music (which was pleasant) and partly since it was packed with families visiting students at the Claremont Colleges. A bit pricey for everyday meals but excellent for a special occasion.

Euro Cafe

Reviewed By Taughboyne - NJ

This cafe is located in a small shopping center dominated by a branch of Vons supermarket. After dropping the grandkids at school we enjoyed two breakfasts on successive days. The Portuguese style sausage, home fries, toast and eggs were a change from the standard US breakfast on the road and the coffee went down a treat. Next time I'm in town I plan to sample an afternoon meal. A nice, unpretentious venue with a big window for gazing at the passing scene.

Nuno's Bistro & Bar

Reviewed By SMB4_1958 - Pacific Grove, California

Portuguese influenced menu with some Spanish and Italian entrees as well. Stumbled across this restaurant while looking for breakfast. What a treat! Excellent linguica omelette and great potatoes as well. Going to try this place out for dinner. I understand they have great drinks with fresh fruit juices for those that like to have a drink.

Excellent service!
