Pretty good steakhouse.

We've eaten at Tanner Jack's 3 times and each time have had a pretty good meal. My favorite is the tri-tip sandwich. The steaks are a little pricey but good

Okay place to eat the SAD diet...the Standard American Diet which causes heart attacks, stroke, and cancer. If that's what you like to eat, these nice people are happy to accomodate you. Massive quantities of beef, pork, chicken, beans, beer, hard liquor....prepare with tums and a quick trip to the bed or bathroom as soon as you get home.

There are plenty of steak/BBQ restaurants in this area and I think there are many better choices than this. We had basic dinners, steak and tri-tip. The tri-tip specialty was so dry and tough I only ate a little. I had been looking forward to the wood smoked flavor, but couldn't taste it. Spouse's steak was better, though salty. Baked... More

Good atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. Must stop on the California Coast in Arroyo Grande. Unique western decor with the best aroma. Casual relaxing dining.

Amazing Sunday brunch buffet. Made to order waffles, omelettes, specialty toppings. Tri tip and biscuits and gravy. Everything is soooo good. This is a favorite for sure!

Great food and good service. Love their fresh rolls and the dipping sauces. The wedge salad is excellent. We often order the ribs for dinner and share as servings are large. Have also eaten here with a group of 12 for lunch. Sandwiches were great and as mentioned previously, servings are generous.

Went to Tanner Jacks for the first time on Mothers Day. Wasn't too busy. Air conditioning was blowing like crazy and many customers sat there chilled. Our order was taken quickly, but it took awhile to come out. The food felt very bland and limited for the price. We weren't satisfied with multiple dishes we ordered. The seats were very... More

The venue is very cute. I had heard good things about the resturant and had high hopes, but it fell short on my first lunch outing. My experience was mediocre, at best. I ordered the hamburger, nothing fancy. One of our friends ordered fish and chips. These two meals do not take much chef expertise in my opinion. The restaurant... More

I don't know where Jim P from Bakersfield is used to eating, or maybe he got the wrong restaurant while he was here. My husband and I have eaten at Tanner Jack's many times, we have gone as a couple, we have taken grandchildren, and have taken our adult children when they visit from out of town, and have taken...
