The Independent Restaurant and Bar
629 Main Street  //  Placerville  //  530-344-7645  //

Voted Best Overall Restaurant, a Best Outdoor Dining, a Best Bar, a Best Romantic Restaurant, a Best Cocktail, and Best Waitpersons Jake Brekke and Tyrel Blankenship! The Independent Restaurant and Bar offers a refreshing place for gatherings of family and friends in the Emerald Street Building on upper Main Street in Placerville. Come and enjoy the modern rustic setting which includes cozy indoor dining and a convivial bar. In addition, outdoor dining is available on the private garden patio. 

Now in their eighth year, the Independent remains focused on its American fusion menu prepared with the freshest ingredients. The full bar is top tier with innovative creations featuring fresh-squeezed juices, infused liquors, and signature cocktails mixed by their friendly and professional staff.

Operating as a “scratch kitchen” the work begins early at The Independent, where meats, cheeses, and fresh-delivered produce are all prepared daily for lunch and dinner service. Creative weekend specials are a hallmark of the Independent and savvy patrons know they sell out quickly. Call and speak to the friendly staff for information and reservations or follow the Independent on Facebook to see current weekend specials. The Independent serves lunch and dinner seven days/week.  Also check out their Bloody Mary Bar on Sundays from 11-4, and their Sous Vide Prime Rib on Sunday nights!
