    First, let me state that we love this restaurant and have enjoyed wonderful meals many times. This time a holiday brunch was a bit less than expected. The bloody Mary was very spicy. We asked for more tomato juice to dilute a bit, but they only had more "mix" to offer. As a result, the bloody mary went unfinished. The quiche was served cold and the server was apologetic and immediately offered to resolve. When the dish was returned, it had not been warmed and the server apologized again that it was supposed to be served cold. Probably should have indicated this on the menu. Skinny glass of mimosa seemed a bit overpriced at $15 each. Normally I do not write reviews unless they are stellar, but in this case, I thought it might be helpful to other diners to ask questions re drinks/menu which would have solved the issues on this particular date.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Independent, it's a true gem in Placerville. The service is fantastic, everyone is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Great cocktails, and wines by the glass are interesting and varied. My wife and I had the beet and wedge salads, respectively, and were very happy with both. We then shared the pork chop, which was absolutely incredible. We finished it off with the bread pudding, which was great. Might just be the best "pub" food we've ever had.

    Right from the time we set foot in the door, we were greeted with warmth and hospitality by Jake Brakke, who set the table for an outstanding experience. The food was all top notch, especially the battered fries, calamari and the most unusual and delicious turnip fries! Never had them before, but more places should try them! The Niçoise salad was perfect, the Caesar’s were quite nice and the wedge was artfully executed. Our waiter was awesome, as were all the service staff, clearing plates and bringing anything we needed with dispatch. We had an outstanding time here and will be back!
