Miwok Inn Diner

"Down-home American cooking with a touch of Native American pride!" That's what owners Anthony Tripp and Darlene Tully-Tripp had in mind when they opened the Miwok Inn Diner. They serve a great breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. The Miwok is a favorite with the locals and Stevens Trail hikers alike due to their casual, friendly dining atmosphere, cozy dining room and outdoor patio, and most importantly a fresh and tasty menu with a little something for everyone including burgers, salads, vegetarian and light-eater selections for a very reasonable price.

The Miwok Inn is only a short distance from the Stevens trail head and interstate hwy 80 exit 135

Locally or Family Owned Business Notes

The name Miwok Inn Diner was carefully chosen by owners Anthony Tripp and Darlene Tully-Tripp. Anthony "Chief" Tripp, as his friends call him, is a Native American Indian, a part of the Ione Band of Miwok Indians here in Northern California.

The Tripp's decided to name the restaurant after Anthony's tribe as a way of paying respect to his heritage. The tribe gave permission to use the name and gives a tribal blessing in the Miwok native language once a year for the restaurant's continuing success and good will.

The Ione Band of Miwok Indians is currently 700 members strong and lives throughout the Sacramento Valley and Sierra Foothills. At one time the Miwok tribe was more than 22,000 strong. The Miwok people are descendants of Nisenan and Miwok speaking people and are very strong and proud of their culture. as reflected in the pride and care shown in the Miwok Inn restaurant

ADA Accessibility Notes



The services was excellent. Good fresh food to eat and well prepared. It is very clean. Nice place to stop on your way to the Sierras for skiing, hiking, camping, fishing or on your way to Nevada.
