Minetti Family – Owners

The Far Western Tavern is owned by three generations of the Minetti family. Clarence and Rosalie Minetti established the Far Western Tavern in 1958 along with Rosalie’s cousin, Richard Maretti, and his wife Jean. The restaurant was born of local flavors and family traditions, and inspired by classic California ranch-style hospitality. This founding legacy endures today as Clarence and Rosalie’s children and grandchildren remain committed to advancing the Far Western Tavern tradition.
