Coloma-Georgetown Divide Casual Dining Favorites
Buckeye Restaurant is a local favorite for a good steak dinner in a dining room with a beautiful view of the surrounding forest. Patty and Randy are the friendly owners. This place boasts a classic mountain decor with rustic wood and trophy stuffed animals along the dining room walls. The bar is popular with locals and Patty whips up great classic margaritas and martinis along with a good wine and beer selection. Prime rib is available on weekend evenings. The menu also includes chicken and seafood items. My favorite is the grilled lamb chops.. All the meals include both soup and salad. Patty makes the soups and they are all really tasty and dairy free. Located at 7460 Wentworth Springs Rd. about 3 miles above Georgetown. Closed Tuesdays. Open for dinner only at 4pm.

The Divide Restaurant is a unique family owned creation that meets the local demand for a more upscale place to have breakfast and lunch . The location has housed several restaurants over the years, but has been remodeled to reflect the history and look of the gold mining heritage of Georgetown. The wood used in the interior came from trees that were harvested after the huge King Fire of 2014. The entire experience has a quality of being in a gold mine. Wonderful! The food and service are totally professional.

Breakfast also includes items like Bananas Foster French Toast or a Breakfast Burrito with Chorizo.

Royal Dragon Chinese Restaurant has been a staple of Georgetown for so long that most of the residents know it simply as "The Chinese Place." The dining room is always populated with the local customers who go there because they always find someone they know, the food is good, and it is served with a smile. The menu line-up is large and includes all the Chinese favorites you would expect to find. The take-out portions are always plentiful. Some of my favorites are Hot & Sour Soup, Phoenix & Dragon, Shrimp & Vegetables, Peking Pork, House Chow Mein, and Cashew Chicken. They have a buffet as well and it is always stocked with fresh food, enough variety, and they put out limited amounts to keep it fresh. Located at 6326 Highway 193 in Georgetown. (530-333-2868)
