Thank you for voting us “BEST OVERALL RESTAURANT” 4 YEARS IN A ROW! Celebrating over 7 years in downtown Placerville, The Independent Restaurant and Bar provides an outstanding American fusion menu and a top-tier full bar staffed by a friendly, energetic crew. The scratch kitchen uses only the freshest and finest ingredients in creating exceptional grill and seafood entrées. We source our produce from local farms and grow seasonal herbs (and hops!) in our side-lot garden. The bar prides itself on artisanal cocktails, fresh-squeezed juices, and house-made mixers, infusions and shrubs. Dine under the stars virtually year-round on the beautiful outdoor private patio! Lunch favorites include our Ahi Nicoise Salad, Blackened Salmon Tacos, and our “Independent Burger” featuring ½ lb. of our in-house ground filet mignon, ribeye, and skirt steak!  Dinner classics include our  Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Certified Hereford Filet Mignon, Molasses-Brined Double-cut Pork Chop and our Prawn Saffron Risotto. All of our desserts are made from scratch, and the bread pudding is great to share! Join us Sunday mornings for our outstanding Bloody Mary Bar and on Sunday nights for our exclusive sous vide Prime Rib! Be sure to check Facebook for weekend entrée and cocktail specials…On weekdays, check out our drink specials and bar-only nosh offered at our  extensive Happy Hour from 2-6! Come find us in the Emerald Street Building, located on “Upper Main Street” in downtown Placerville.  Open 7 days/week for lunch & dinner.
