Everything on the menu is above excellent !!!!

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... read more

This place, looks good on the outside, says the right things, wood fired BBQ steak house. Denny's serves a better steak. All the appetizers and side dishes are frozen. Such potential but such a disappointment.

After playing a round of golf at one of the local golf courses my group frequently stops by Tanner Jacks for a beer and snacks. Good beer and good snacks. They also make very good breakfasts and lunches. I suspect the dinners are good too, but I've not tried them.

We had dinner on a Sunday night. It wasn't crowded but service was slow and our server appeared to be new-our drink orders a one dinner order were incorrect. But they made it right without a hassle . The ribs, tri tip and pulled pork were delicious. Ask for bbq sauce with the tri tip for additional flavor. The cream... More

I'm not much of a "steak" person, but the plenitude of other goodies is great! We sat in the "private"/cozy table for four, which was great as the two men I was with are deaf Deaf DEAF! The other couple ordered a large multi-meat deal, and I had the skewered shrimp. Really good yummy/(fatty) sides. Onion rings were wow! It... More

For a restaurant in such a prime location and boasting a celebrated chef, it's a shame TJs just did not shine. The french dip was bland, the peanut slaw had no flavor and the fish [(from the fish and chips) usually a draw in this area] was tasteless and dry. None of it tasted seasoned or unique in any way....

Tanner Jack's is located on the Pacific Coast High Way at the top of the northern most part of the Nipomo Mesa out in the country. Great sliced beef au jus sandwiches and peach cobbler. Not far from the Arroyo Grande Village. Continue on Hwy 1 south to Oso Flaco Lake nature reserve.

I went with a friend for lunch, she raves about this place. I got the french dip sandwich, which was very good, while my friend got the meatloaf, which was also very good. The only complaint was that the service was very slow. I think they only had one server on for the entire restaurant so we waited 10 minutes... More

My girlfriend that lives in AG took us here for lunch. The food was great. I loved the tomato/bacon appetizer (I think in was called "Your new favorite tomato salad"). I'll go back just for that. Check it out. The prices are super reasonable as well.
