The restaurant in the Country Club at Soboba Springs provides a nice atmosphere in which to unwind.
It's called the Maze Stone, and it serves steaks at competitive prices.
The property has been owned by the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians since 2004, and has a different vibe than Soboba Casino a few miles away. It hugs the hillside in San Jacinto, and you reach it on a winding road without street lights, traffic lights or traffic.
According to the club Web site, the tribe has made several upgrades in the 18-hole golf course.
The dining room is in a new $11 million clubhouse that opened in April. It is done in earth tones with lots of dark wood and a large stone fireplace that partitions off the bar. It faces southwest, with several window tables looking out on a wide patio and the golf course beyond. The light at sunset is warm and inviting.
I had a 6-ounce cut of filet mignon for $22.95. The meat was tender, seared on the outside and pink inside. It came with bread, soup or salad, choice of potato and vegetable. I particularly enjoyed the glazed carrots, firm with a healthy orange glow.
A 16-ounce cut of prime rib occupies the high end of the menu at $32.95 and is served only on Fridays and Saturday.
The dinner menu also includes an array of chicken, seafood and pasta less than $20.

Filet Mignon, front, and Steak Sandwich are a couple dishes at The Maze Stone.
The breakfast menu, available, 7-11 a.m., includes a two-egg breakfast with hash browns and choice of meat for $5.95. You can get four slices of French toast for the same price. Egg beater omelets run $6.50-$6.95.
Lunch, served 11 a.m. to closing, can be done in the $10-$15 range with a selection of burgers, sandwiches and pasta.
Desserts are a reasonable $4.95-$5.95 for chocolate cake, fudge brownies, cheesecake and carrot cake. I opted for a slice of the latter, although it was more of a slab than a slice with six layers and thin ribbons of frosting between. I took it home and it lasted me three nights, moist to the end.
