Established in 1858, the 7 Mile House is an award-winning, family and dog-friendly restaurant, sports bar, and live music venue, serving up a unique mix of homestyle Italian/American/Filipino food. It is the only mile-house left standing in its original location and has a colorful history dating from its rebel days in the 1800s to being a trucker/biker hangout and then an infamous sports gambling joint in the 80s. Today, this popular restaurant and bar presents live entertainment nearly every night.
Make a reservation to hear great music and to help improve the economics of jazz performance in the Bay Area.
