Fantastic beef

On a recommendation from the hotel clerk we dined at the Guest House. Nice and cozy atmosphere.We read that the beef was from the local Hearst Ranch (we had visited the Hearst Castle that afternoon) so we had steaks for dinner - cooked perfectly.

The motel we stayed at recommended this place and we were not disappointed. A varied menu and pleasant atmosphere followed with good wine and beer choices. It is located at the back of an old strip mall, but don't let that fool you. The inside and the patio seating were great.

Love this place. A little off the beaten track---so mostly known to locals. But that's probably one of the reasons I like it. We consistently have great meals here. The food is very good with a nice selection to choose from. It's a nice place to take out of town guests when we are surprised 😁 Nice little outside dining... More

We came to Atascadero by coincidence but than had the BEST steaks here during our three weeks Harley trip throughout California. If you are nearby you should definitely visit!!

Varied menu and reasonable prices and good service. Food was good. There's a covered outdoor dining space as well. All good enough that we returned with others.

We have to say this is the only Steak house in the north county worth the money. We had the Ahi Poke Appetizer, Steak Salad, and filet mignon, for dinner, was fantastic, and dessert flourless chocolate cake, and berry gelato, great meal, and service.

I must eat gluten free; I'm trying to go vegetarian, so meeting up at a "Grill" seemed to be a problem. NOT. the menu is clearly GF and Veg friendly. I chose the Portobello for my dinner, and that was a delicious, satisfying choice. my companions were delighted with other items.. including steak. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. YES,...

I always get great food and service here. Last time my husband and I ate here we sat outside near the fire pit. We were plenty warm and our waitress gave us plenty of attention and helped us with picking out our meal, which was excellent. It was a prime rib night and there was music inside. Everyone seemed to... More

We eat here quite frequently for lunch and dinner. We have most likely ordered everything on the menu over the years we have eaten there. They have a lovely semi enclosed area with tall heaters, if needed, where you can eat plus a patio not under cover but with a fire pit. The staff is friendly and helpful. We always... More
