The Guest House Grill is a warm and friendly restaurant. Salads were fresh and food very tasty. They have a good selection of wine from local vineyards. However our server really did not pay any attention to our table. We didn't receive our bread at all during the meal, water glasses were never refilled, and two of our steaks were... More

Every one of my experiences at Guest House Grill have been a disappointment. They charge too much for their unimaginative and mediocre offerings and at one visit, the bartender made my margarita with Dambuie! Uck .! I believe the only reason they are busy is obvious: there is NO WHERE ELSE TO GO in Atascadero! They recently opened a 2nd... More

January is restaurant month in Slo county. Several restaurants provide 3 courses for $30. It gives my wife and I an excuse to explore restaurants we haven't tried before. This year the Guest House Grill is offering a rack of lamb and pan seared salmon. My wife and I shared one of each and they were delicious. The lamb was... More

The Guest House Grill was recommended by our hotel. The food was wonderful, along with the service. We had a party of 6 (did not take reservations) and were told that Fri and Sat nights are busy. At 6pm we waited about 30 mins for a table. Highly recommend the pork loin and chicken entrees.

Sadly, there is no "fine dining" in Atascadero but when you want decent food in a better-than-average atmosphere, Guest House Grill is the place. Reasonably-priced but not particularly creative food in a full service restaurant. Full bar, nice patio, space for large parties and plenty of parking. Ample servings, daily specials and live music on Saturday nights makes this your... More

Great aesthetic with warm welcoming feel. Take a look at the nostalgic murals of California country side. Artist: Hugh Slayden. The service was friendly and fast which is great for a family with young children. The salads are great as well as the meatloaf sandwich! We will definitely pay anther visit!

We have dinner here every now and then, and the food is always good and service is terrific. The nightly specials are a great deal, but the one time we ordered the steak, it was a bit tough. Nice ambiance, good spot for a date, and I have invited my elderly parents to dinner as well - everyone finds something... More

Went here for a Birthday lunch - very good. Nice outdoor seating, fast service and great food. This visit I had the Roasted Beet Salad which was very good. Previous visits I have also enjoyed the Apple Walnut, Western and Sirloin salads - all yummy!

the Guest House is a great hideaway restaurant in Atascadero. It has a great outdoor patio with soothing waterfalls. We enjoyed. Delicious lunch with five of our close friends after church last week. Food was delicious. Will definitely go back again soon.
