Duncan Hines said of the Hurley Bell Inn in Corona del Mar, California that it served "steaks, chops and roast prime ribs of beef.  Among other desserts they have hot mincemeat pie with brandy sauce."
The Hurley Bell is still around but it has another name.  Starting life in 1938, it was sold in the late 1960s and became The Five Crowns Restaurant.  They are part of the Lawry group of restaurants and the food there served is top notch.

And here's an article that tells a bit of history about the place and how it became part of the Lawry group of restaurants.

The Strawberry Lodge in Kyburz, California is still around, and has been since 1858.  Duncan Hines wrote that the served, "Tenderloin steak with mushroom sauce, prime ribs of beef au jus, and mountain trout saute Meuniere."
 
Today, they don't serve anything particularly unusual, but the pancake with the smiley face for breakfast is a nice touch.

Duncan Hines wrote of the Marine Room in La Jolla, California, "Operated by the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, but open to the public.  A fine view of the blue Pacific from dining room where you may watch the foam from illuminated ocean waves---at high tide against the heavy plate glass windows.  Their beautiful murals have a fascination, too."
 
If you look at their website, it is still just as he described it in the 1952 edition of "Adventures in Good Eating."  Several pictures show the waves crashing against the plate glass windows.  As to the food served there, the prices are through the roof, but the food is undoubtedly worth it, and I imagine that Duncan Hines would still be coming here if he could.

A most unusual name for a restaurant is Don the Beachcomber in Los Angeles, California.  Despite the name, it lives on many decades after Duncan Hines first ate here.
 
In his guidebook, Duncan Hines wrote that it specialized in "Chinese cooking.  Specialties: Mandarin duck served with wild plum sauce; Chicken Almond with bamboo shoots, water chestnuts; spareribs barbecued with Chinese sauces; shrimp cooked with a special batter and sauce.  This place is famous for its exotic rum cocktails."
 
This place really hasn't changed at all.  The same sort of food and cocktails are still being served here as it was in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Update: Thanks to Wintahaba, I now have a list of Don the Beachcomber restaurants.

The one mentioned above was the original restaurant (#1 on the list) at 1722 North McCadden Place.

Farmer's Market in Los Angeles, California is not exactly a restaurant.  It's more of a market and food destination.  This is what Duncan Hines had to say about it in the 1952 edition of "Adventures in Good Eating" when he visited: "This is no ordinary market.  Opened as a farmer's market, it was forced into the restaurant business.  It now covers ten acres (ample parking space) and thousands have discovered the pleasure of lunching there.  You go from place to place and buy whatever suits your fancy, shrimp cocktail at the oyster bar, roast beef at the delicatessen, fried chicken at the rotisserie, Spanish food at the Spanish kitchen, chicken pies at the restaurant, coffee at the coffee counter, ice cream right out of the freezer, pastries or pies hot from the oven."
 
It may cover more acreage now than it did then, but it looks like the description above holds true to this very day.

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, California, built in 1927, has the film industry as its central motif.  There's the Marilyn [Monroe] suite, for instance.  Duncan Hines recommended this place, and here is what he had to say about it: "The Garden Grill, prime ribs of beef the specialty, and pastries.  The Cinegrill, serving light food, salad, ham and eggs, sandwiches, also one hot luncheon, dinner and supper."
 
You won't find out much about the place from its website, so this wickipedia article might suffice if you want more information.

Lawry's in Los Angeles, California is now Lawry's the Prime Rib in Beverly Hills, California.  Duncan Hines was here.  He wrote of it, "A grand place to get prime rib of beef.  You select your own slice from a so-called portable kitchen wheeled to your table.  Only the top grade of ribs meet the Lawry's specifications.  You'll like them."
 
And you will too!  Lawry's is hard to beat anywhere.

Musso and Frank Grill in Los Angeles (established in 1919) is--at this writing (9-19-17)--the 7th oldest restaurant in Los Angeles.  Hollywood stars from the silent era at here frequently.  Duncan Hines wrote that it was "one of the old stand-bys with satisfying food sold you at reasonable prices.  Roast beef, curries among their specialties."

The Sportsman's Lodge in Los Angeles is still serving guests, but it's pretty low-key these days.  When Duncan Hines stayed and dined here, this is what he wrote:  "They serve only dinners and are frequented by those who enjoy good food in a delightful atmosphere.  So popular that one has to make reservations in advance or wait hours.  Many members of film colony dine there."

Re: Surviving Duncan Hines Family Restaurants 2017/09/20 16:57:05 (permalink)
The Casa Munras Hotel in Monterey, California had a Duncan Hines recommended restaurant inside.  The hotel is still there, as is the restaurant.  Today the hotel is very pricey, and the restaurant seems to be more of a special occasion type of restaurant than a regular one.  Maybe if the guests at the hotel have exclusive use of the restaurant.  It's kind of hard to tell exactly what the set up is there.
 
Duncan Hines didn't have much to say about the restaurant in the hotel.  He said in his guidebook that it had "appetizing food served in attractive surroundings."  Go to the website and see what you can make of it.

When Duncan Hines visited here, this restaurant in Novato, California was called Maison Marin.  In the meantime it has gone through a couple of name changes, and today it is called The Hilltop.
 
In his guidebook, he really didn't say much about the restaurant; instead he concentrated on the chef at the time.  The chef, of course, is long gone, but the restaurant's reputation for fine food is still attracting customers.  Indeed, if you look at the Hilltop's website, it now seems to be made up of several restaurants.  Sort of unusual, but whatever works, I guess.  Check it out and see what I mean.

Re: Surviving Duncan Hines Family Restaurants 2017/09/24 13:44:34 (permalink)
The Panamint Springs Resort in Panamint Springs, California, located in the Death Valley National Park is still around.  Duncan Hines wrote about this place in his restaurant guide, saying that it had, "home-cooked meals, served family style."  That's all he had to say about it.
 
Today it serves rather ordinary food, mainly burgers and pizza.  Looking over its menu, however, I was struck by one item that I've never seen before that a customer could add onto a pizza: cashews.

The Rose Tree in Pasadena, California was a restaurant in "Adventures in Good Eating."  Hines said that it was "a quiet little house set back from the avenue, surrounded by flowers.  Charming, restful."
 
In his guidebook, Duncan Hines called it the "Rose Tree."  Today, unless I am mistaken, it is the Rose Tree Cottage, located about a block from the restaurant that Hines visited.  They call themselves "California's original tea house" and it looks like an upscale 1930s tea house that Hines would visit in the 1930s.

Clearman's Steak and Stein Inn in Pico, California is still located at the same location that it was when Duncan Hines dined here in the early 1950s.  Duncan Hines wrote that "this attractive charcoal-broiled steaks, large baked potatoes with unusual cream sauce and chopped onions, and a special salad."
 
Today it is still a top-notch restaurant and one that Duncan Hines would be proud to enter.  You had better not be poor when you enter this place; the prices are out of reach for some people--like their $69.00 34-oz. tomahawk rib-eye.  But no one who can afford it will will leave here unhappy.

Re: Surviving Duncan Hines Family Restaurants 2017/09/24 14:49:18 (permalink)
The Hotel Mac in Point Richmond has been serving meals at the same address since 1911.  It closed in 1971 due to a fire, then reopened in 1978 and has been going strong ever since.
 
Duncan Hines said of this place, "This is not in the town of Richmond but farther out at Point Richmond on the way to the ferry.  Here you will get steaks.  Also Chinese food."
 
The Chinese food is gone, but the steaks are still there, along with several other types of food.  They mention on their website that Duncan Hines said at the time that they were one of the best restaurant in the country.  Maybe that is still the case.  It wouldn't hurt to go inside and find out.

Some things never change.  The Mitla Cafe in San Bernardino, California, which has been around since 1937, served Duncan Hines Mexican food in the early 1950s, and it is still serving it to customers today.
 
After Hines dined here he wrote in his guidebook, "Adventures in Good Eating" that they offered "Spanish food---tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, tamales, chili con carne, chile rellenos, combination plate (plattillo surtidos), fried beans with cheese."
 
Today it offers everything that you find in a Mexican restaurant, but in the early 1950s I imagine eating Mexican food was somewhat exotic, at least for travelers who didn't live in the Southwest.

The Harbor House in San Diego, California was in "Adventures in Good Eating."  Duncan Hines wrote that it was "a seafood place, but they also serve steaks and chicken."  Nearly 70 years later it is still the same.

Alfred's in San Francisco, California began life in 1928, and 89 years later it is still as elegant as ever.  When Duncan Hines dined here, he wrote that it served, "a fresh variety of hors d'oeuvres, fresh cracked crab (cooked daily), prosciutto and special pigs' feet in gelatin.  Entrees of charcoal-broiled filet mignon, steaks, frog legs, sweetbreads with mushrooms, chicken, squab, or guinea hen en casserole Parisienne, and for dessert perhaps you would like their fried cream in blue flame."
 
Looking over their menu today, you had better have some bucks with you when you enter this place.    An 8-oz. filet is $49, a 12-oz. filet is $63, and a porterhouse steak is $85.  And if you bring your whole family, you might blow your top if the kids aren't hungry after you order.  Maybe the $8.00 onion rings is all they should have.  Then again, you better leave them at home.

The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, California was a Duncan Hines recommended restaurant.  There may have been only one restaurant at the time he dined here, but now there are at least three.  When he ate here, he wrote that it had "many exotic dishes and desserts, as well as beverages.  Real Chinese cooking of the first order.  I enjoy this room, also their snack bar."
 
Based on what he wrote above, I think the Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar might be the logical restaurant descendant, as they offer Chinese food.  It's on the pricey side, but it is probably worth it.

Julius' Castle in San Francisco, California was a Duncan Hines recommended restaurant.  Built in 1922, it is one of the city's oldest restaurants.  It had closed down, but in July 2017 it was announced that it was going to reopen again.  So we'll see what happens.
 
Here is the website:
 
http://www.juliuscastlesf.com/
 
And here is the announcement referenced above:
 
http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Julius-Castle-restaurant-gets-the-OK-to-reopen-11271419.php
 
And here's what Duncan Hines said it served in the 1952 edition of "Adventures in Good Eating":
 
"French and Italian food.  Scallopini marsala, chicken cacciatora, medallion of beef and mushrooms, banana fritters."

The Palace Hotel was a Duncan Hines recommended stop, and two of the restaurants that are in the hotel are still there.
 
In his guidebook, he wrote: "Lunch and dinner served daily in their beautiful and unique dining room, "The Garden Court . . . "
 
https://www.sfpalace.com/garden-court/
 
" . . . breakfast and lunch in the Cafe Grill, dinner and supper, dancing daily in except Mondays in the Rose Room.
 
The Pied Piper bar for men . . . . "
 
https://www.sfpalace.com/pied-piper-bar-and-grill/
 
" . . . and Happy Valley cocktail lounge for ladies.  A wide variety of food.  Their specialties are too numerous to list."
 
You can look over the menus of the Garden Court and the Pied Piper and probably determine that Duncan Hines would still approve of them.

Tadich Grill has been around since 1949, and Duncan Hines gave it his blessing in the 1940s.  He wrote, "Said to be the oldest established restaurant in San Francisco.  The food is good, and seafood is the specialty.  The rex sole especially well-liked."  It is now California's oldest restaurant.
 
Today seafood is still the specialty.  In Hines' guidebook the address was 545 Clay street; in 1980 it moved to 240 California street.  That's really the only change the restaurant has made since then.

Duncan Hines recommended Tarantino's in San Francisco, California.  He wrote in his guidebook: "Features here are crab legs sauteed and Rex Sole served boned."  That's all he wrote about it.
 
There is a website for Tarantino's but it doesn't seem to work.  There is a dinner menu online, and it displays the current menu, and although Rex Sole is not on it, various varieties of crab are.

One of Duncan Hines favorite places to eat and sleep was the Santa Maria Inn in Santa Maria, California.   He wrote about his historic inn, which has been around since 1917: "Each visit to this delightful places increases my enthusiasm for it. . . .  Genuine hospitality is expressed in the quiet service, the appointments, the ideals which have been thoughtfully worked out to make your stay a pleasant one.  You will always remember the beauty of the flowers in the court, in the rooms and the unusual flower arrangements in windows and on tables in dining room.  The cuisine is excellent.  There is a tap room for the guests."
 
Here is the inn's website:

And here is some information about the restaurants and the tap room that you will find within:

Beside the Joshua Tree National Park in Twenty-Nine Palms, California, you'll find the Twenty-Nine Palms Inn, which was recommended in Duncan Hines's restaurant guide.  He only said three words about it: "Good meals here."  Apparently, that was enough.  Today the restaurant at the inn serves a nice selection of choices.

The Brook Forest Inn in Brook Forest (now Evergreen), Colorado was listed as a Duncan Hines recommended restaurant as well as a place to spend the night.  Hines said this place was "a bit of Switzerland in the Colorado Rockies."  He said they served "chicken and mountain trout."  Today it serves mainly pizza, but it does have a few unusual items such as butternut squash ravioli.

The Crags Lodge (now the Historic Crags Lodge) in Estes Park, Colorado was listed in Duncan Hines' "Adventures in Good Eating."  All he said about it was that it had "cottages and Lodge rooms."  He didn't say anything about the food at the restaurant, but travelers using his book knew that if it was simply listed in the book, that was all they needed to know if they wanted to have a good meal.
 
The restaurant at the Crags Lodge today is The View, and here is their menu:

The Pepper Pod in Hudson, Colorado has been in business for at least 104 years.  Duncan Hines said that the restaurant had an "Indian pueblo design and decoration" and that the served "well-cooked food.  Steaks and fried chicken.  Buffalo steaks in May and October."  According to their website, the still serve buffalo, but only every now and then.  The building has moved in town since Hines first ate there.

The Stagecoach in in Manitou, Colorado is now P.J.'s Stagecoach Inn.  It has the same address as when Duncan Hines ate here.  Hines said that it was "a charming restaurant in the Pike's Peak region.  Natural colored knotty pine is used in both the woodwork and furnishings to create a cheery atmosphere that makes for greater enjoyment of their home-cooked food."
 
The restaurant doesn't have a website that I could locate online, but I did find a menu.

The Hotel Dupont in Wilmington, Delaware was recommended by Duncan Hines in "Adventures in Good Eating."  He wrote, "Wilmington is known is known as "the first city of the first state" as Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States.  It is fitting this "first city" should have a deluxe hotel like the Dupont which meets every requirement of the discriminating traveler.  You may enjoy a variety of seafoods and many other foods skillfully prepared."
 
I don't think there is any question that that is the hotel's policy to this very day.

I had a little trouble accessing their menu for their restaurant, The Green Room, but I found one on Facebook:
