Split a special salad, double pork chop, and a fudge and butterscotch Sunday. Had a great waiter, Justin. We brought a local wine we picked up wine tasting, but opted to purchase J. Dusi Zin, another of our local favorites and skip the (totally reasonable...More

My girlfriend Tina took me to McPhee’s Grill in Templeton, CA for my birthday dinner. We split an off-menu special: Filet Mignon Chop. All I can say is WOW! This was by far the very best cut of beef that I have ever tasted. Paired...More

While staying in Templeton, we had dinner at McPhee’s. We weren’t very hungry, so we ordered a pizza. Better than any boutique pizza in Santa Barbara, where we live. Had the same dinner two days later. Also, they serve great local wine at minuscule mark-up....More

Yes there is and unfortunately its one of the highest out there. If I remember (and I could be wrong) its about $20. Better to just go and have their wine. Their house wines are very good.
