Since 1970, this family-run restaurant has been attracting travelers headed to Malibu through the Santa Monica Mountains. With its rural, woodsy surroundings and rustic interior, this spot offers a distinctive glimpse into California’s pioneering past. Try the smoky, oak-grilled sirloin steak served with a green salad and baked potato. Only five booths and three small tables are available, in addition to seating at the bar, so reservations are highly recommended. Dinner reservations are taken for seating at 5, 6:30 or 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
