Who would have thought? Right at the edge of town sits a really nice restaurant. I mean, really nice. We were with a group of 10 and sat in the back of the restaurant all by ourselves. The service was outstanding. So attentive and kind, despite our sometimes picky changes to the menu. Food was also great. We split a... More

Good food and good ambiance. Why wife and I shared the ribeye, more than enough for the 2 of us. Shared entree included a stuffed poblano child, guacamole, and super good mashed potatoes. I also started the meal with the grilled artichoke which was excellent, especially the dipping sauce served with it. Very good service with a reasonable price

Another exceptional dinner. This is a favorite go-to for hubby and I. The service is impeccable. Our favorite server always remembers us and has great recommendations for both wine and food. Tonight I had the rib eye with side poblano chile stuffed with goat cheese. Delish!! Hubby had the cedar plank smoked salmon - always cooked to perfection. Their decadent... More

Absolutely EXCEPTIONAL service! Our server Kathy had a tremendous personality and was incredibly kind! The food was very good- especially the wine, shoestring fries, cheeseburger and blackberry dessert! Cold water in a glass jug with no ice! Relaxed atmosphere- very comfortable for a family birthday dinner on a road trip! We'd go back!

This is a great place near Paso Robles. Food is very good with more than ample servings. The highlights are prime beef and a great pork chop. Wine and beer only but a good list. Country casual.

Loved McPhee's. The service we received was fabulous. Everything we ordered was well presented and delicious. My husband I loved the lump crab cake. I ordered the double-cut pork chop. Oh my! It was huge. It was so tender and moist. I had to take half of it with me and ate it the next day warmed in our hotel... More

Superb range of fresh food served in this converted old saloon/hotel into a thriving steakhouse. It has a extensive menu of local ingredients to add to make dishes truly delicious. Good Paso Robles wine menu to pair with your plate. Outstanding service makes this a unique experience. Look at the dishes I was served. Prime cuts of beef and duck... More

We had a family wine tasting day and stopped here at the end of the day for some food. Needless to say, all but our driver were in a state of silliness. Our server was so incredibly patient and friendly, as were the rest of the staff, who stopped to chat now and again and watch the ridiculous show that... More

Wonderful meals and great service. Nice wine list with local wines (will probably see a bottle or two from places you visited). Pork chop was amazing.

Had a wonderful evening with family. This is a must visit if you want a great and unique meal. The food is perfectly seasoned and the service is outstanding. It's a great place in a quaint town where you can have dinner or lunch especially if you want to impress a special friend.
