Appetizing Events Are About to Unfold

Treat your appetite to a storied feast at breakfast or dinner. And for lunch, choose your own adventure!

Celebrate the art of storytelling as well as California’s independent spirit at this buffet–à la carte hybrid. Menu items are inspired by the natural bounty of California as well as the diversity of its people, with vibrant Asian and Mexican flavors peppering a selection of classic fresh fare.

Many of the same “Great Beginnings” can be ordered for lunch or dinner, including our signature charred Nebraska corn chowder, “sticky” spare ribs with Napa Cabbage Slaw, and “robusto” flatbread with chorizo de Bilbao and romesco. “Chapter Two” is where lunch and dinner stories diverge.

A Tale of 2 Meals
In the evening, choose from menu entrées like grilled lobster tail salad and hand-cut pasta with duck confit, or enjoy all you care to from our dinner buffet. There you’ll find carved meats, baked chicken, salmon, pasta, salads, kids’ favorites like chicken nuggets and mac and cheese, and assorted desserts.

Kids can also order from their own special menu, with choices like salmon filet and rice, pasta and turkey meatballs, and the interactive make-your-own pizza kit, complete with a fun hat for your budding chef.

At lunchtime, the à la carte menu emphasizes sandwiches, salads and burgers, though 4-cheese ravioli and New York steak “protein style” offer heartier options. Try the salmon and spinach salad, slow-roasted turkey clubhouse sandwich or grilled rare albacore tuna. Then devour the “Final Chapter” with sweet endings like seasonal cheesecake or even a trio of desserts—chocolate bundt cake, apple galette and seasonal crème brûlée.

Beer, wine and cocktails are also available for Guests 21 and over, should they care to spin a yarn or two.

All menu items are subject to change without notice. Dinner buffet availability may be seasonal.

Explore a Native Narrative
Throughout this warm and inviting dining space, discover details like rustic wood carvings, backlit silhouettes of men working the land and 7 hand-painted murals, each depicting classic California stories like Mark Twain’s “The Jumping Frogs of Calaveras County” and Scott O'Dell's “Island of the Blue Dolphins.” On chilly days, warm yourself by the blazing fire.
