We were looking for a nice place for dinner and found this gem! Our server Charlie was wonderful. She gave us time to decide what we would enjoy from the super menu, and was very attentive. Everything from burgers made with grass fed Hearst Ranch beef to Shrimp Fettuccine is available here. When we... read more

We came in for lunch during and roadtrip on the 101 and found this hidden gem. Nice atmosphere, good service, very clean and pretty, and a menu with something for everyone. Kids are well taken care of and the food and wine were delicious at fair prices. Make sure you give this place a try!

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.
