The Sage Hen



Susanville's newest eating establishment is located in front of the High Country Inn. The owner and chef, Serge Marchale, has international experience. While I haven't eaten there yet, I have heard great things about the restaurant. The menu changes alot (something unheard of in Susanville!) and has a variety of items. This place was the Apple Peddler and before that the Country Kitchen.

Let us know how the food is once you try it.

I grew up in Douglas County, Co. and we use to ride hours on the bus to go to sporting events too. So that photo brought back a few memories!

Yes, and wasn't it something else before Country Kitchen? I've lost track. We've eaten here on a number of occasions and it's very nice. A bit pricey, but not if you don't order all the extras. The best is to go to the Friday or Saturday buffett - it sounds pricey but you get sooooo much for your money that it's really a great deal. The staff is really nice too.
I miss the tea room though - I'm so sad it closed.

This restaurant had to of or needs to be on "Kitchen Nightmares". Yeah the staff was nice, they kind of had to be, aside from another couple we were the only ones there at 7pm on a Friday night. My kids asked me if the desserts in the buffet were real or plastic replicas. The food I think was cooked to appease those with no teeth or a sore gum-line, everything was mushy and way overcooked. I had the halibut which after pouring half the salt shaker on it was edible. I watched my father -in-law wrestle with the special "5 Dot Steak". He said that it was like trying to eat an over-microwaved boot. My wife had the pesto chicken. The pesto and pasta were fine, but she said (and I tried it too) the chicken tasted like it had been cooked about a week ago. I don't mind paying more for good food, but this was a nightmare. I do hope Chef Ramsey does pay a visit, he would definitely change this place for the better.
