Returned to The Alisal after a number of years. It still maintains its excellent service and charm. Staff is incredibly hospitable and friendly. Chef Anthony rocks the food. We were there for Barbecue Boot Camp and vow to return every year.

Thank you for your interest in Alisal. The cattle operations are kept separate from the guest experience. We do have a small amount of cattle we use during our Rodeo (summer months only).
