This review is intended to focus on the restaurant, Italian Cucina, which is on the lower level inside the casino. We have been going to the casino for many years and have utilized all the restaurants. Always viewed the Italian restaurant as somewhat above a 3.
Recently they have made improvements that change the rating to a 4+. Our server was a lady named Manifer. I single her out because she seemed to embody the establishments focus on the customer. We asked for modifications to the menu items and all were perfectly communicated to the kitchen which did an outstanding job preparing a very high quality set of meals
One in particular, "Baby lamb chops", were offered as an appetizer, however, were converted to an main course. Being somewhat a "snob" when it comes to lamb chops, I was "blown away" by the preparation and quality of the meal. In commenting to our server about the change in quality and presentation, the head chef, Christian, came to our table. I'll shorten the story by offering that I would come back to the Casino just to come for another meal here. Clearly the changes are positive and worth your time to give them a try.

The Water Conservation Garden

Reviewed By Susan B - El Cajon, California

The Water Conservation Garden is part of Cuyamaca Community College. It is a beautiful garden planted with an amazing collection of specimens that are adapted to this area and require very little water. It also has great explanations of the difference in water needs of different specimens, instructions on composting, fire safety plantings, and even has classes available for gardening instruction. It has a small gift shop and an amphitheater for group presentations (periodically local agencies give lectures and people even hold weddings here). It is free, but there is a suggested donation. I visit every 2-3 months to get ideas.

Summers Past Farms

Reviewed By Melissa M - El Cajon, California

What a wonderful place to get away from the "town" feeling and enter the country. Beautiful barns with gift shops and homemade soaps plus anything you could want! To sit out on the patio with the birds singing, the beautiful view and such friendly people makes this place perfect. Good for children or for some "couple time" to walk around and enjoy the day! It is wonderful! Enjoy!

Lindo Lake County Park

Reviewed By nashline - Lakeside, California

Lindo Lake has two or three lakes, lots of walking paths, many beautiful trees, several large areas made for picnic gatherings. Exercise for adults and children, playground equipment.........great trees with lots of birds, squirrels, etc. Haven't fished there but we see people fishing around the two lake areas. We've seen weddings being held in the park facilities and out on the extended island covered pavilion. Very nice neighborhood park, has a skateboard/bike separate area for mid-age kids. We've had several family reunions there over the last ten years...............

Barona Creek Golf Club

Reviewed By Susan R - Benahavis, Spain

An outstanding golf facility. All the courtesy one would expect from Southern Californians. Club house well stocked. Snack bar adjacent very accommodating to my vegetarian whim - awesome avacado and salad wrap created on request. Free refills on drinks.

Club house staff very knowledgeable and accommodating.

Course very long - watch out for the par 3's especially from the tips! Par 5's present birdie opportunities

Greens had just been treated (April 1st) but were still very quick and relatively true another couple of weeks and they will be fiendish. Sensibly they had only treated half of the putting practice facility so you could see both!
Complimentary balls on the driving range and an extensive chipping area again balls provided.

BNS Brewing and Distilling Company

Reviewed By Ryano724

This micro-brewery is really neat. The decor is really cool, kind of old western. Very large inside and an open atmosphere. There is an outside area that is done up pretty nice, fountains, tables, etc. Also kid friendly as they can play outside. Located really close to the Santee Drive-in as well.

They don't serve food here but don't worry, they schedule gourmet food trucks to be there every day. The food on these trucks is amazing! Not what you'd think at all. Check out their Facebook page to get an idea of the food selections that they usually have on the trucks.

Ok so the beer is always subject to opinion right? I loved it. I'm not a heavy drinker or anything but I really liked the taste and I tried several. Put it this way, a certain type of person goes to micro-breweries. I guarantee there is at least a few beers here you'd think were amazing. I'll leave it at that.

We will be back for sure and I'd recommend you try it...
