I got to try the Sycamore Inn for happy hour with one of my girlfriends recently and I was a happy camper.
This restaurant is right on the edge of the city of Rancho Cucamonga and Upland. Growing up in Upland, I passed by this restaurant almost daily, but never had the opportunity to try. The property looks super romantic, especially at night time as the grounds have several trees which are covered in twinkly lights. Though the Sycamore Inn is as a fancy steakhouse, they are also very popular for their generous happy hour offerings which are available daily from opening until 8:00 pm – which gives me perfect time to stop by for a quick bite after work!
Atmosphere: Pretty casual with a hint of fancy. We sat on the outside porch area as the weather was perfect. The porch provides a perfect place to wait for friends, have drinks, and enjoy great food. The inside seemed dark or dim with leather chairs and sectionals – I suppose it could be considered upscale and romantic by some and stuffy by others.
Food: we tried a few of the appetizers which were on the happy hour menu.
• Oysters- must order!!! They taste super fresh!
• Roasted garlic-served with goat cheese and bruschetta. Good shareable, but nothing amazing.
• Sliders- mini braised short rib sliders with BBQ sauce. Super tasty, must order. • Cheese Plate – Very generous portion. Highly recommend.
Service: Really nice and efficient. Our waitress was attentive without being too pushy.
Everything we got to try was great, but my favorite item was the plate of fresh oysters. Can’t wait to be back and try other menu items. I may have found my new go to happy hour place!
