This nostalgic restaurant offers a popular dinner menu. Steak, chops, and of course their traditional home-style turkey dinner with all the fixins are popular. Early bird specials are most affordable ranging below $10. All prices at Walnut Grove are reasonably priced, but the early bird specials are unbelievably low. While indulging in a wonderful meal, enjoy a glass of wine. If you are a bar-b-que lover, try their famous hickory smoked selections of baby back ribs or tri-tip.

Walnut Grove is the only retail bakery in San Juan Capistrano. Featured fresh baked favorites are their decadent sticky buns, oozing with brown sugar and honey and loaded with chopped walnuts. If cinnamon rolls are your favorite, then you should know that Walnut Groveís are the Grand Dame of cinnamon rolls. Locals say you canít find them better. They are soft pillows of flavor, served warm with butter and dripping with rich tasting frosting.


As a family owned business, Ben and Sharon Newhart show pride in ownership. Some of their servers have been there since 1946. And, they can run circles around the young ones. Sharon is the baker and makes fresh home made pies, cakes and a delicious selection of mouth-watering cookies.

If all this hasnít grabbed your interest by now, imagine the little oneís entertained while you eat at Walnut Groveís arcade. And, there is always plenty of parking for cars and R.V.ís. What more can you ask for?

Ben and Sharon invite you and your family to stop in and fill up. Youíll be glad you did!
