A Good Break from Wine Tasting

Casual, small Irish pub that serves up decent food (try the Onion ring tower) and appears to be popular among the locals. Good stop if you need a break from wine. Located in downtown Paso square. Has dog friendly outdoor patio.

Beat cubano sandwich I have ever eaten!! The wit staff was pleasant and attentive, and the beer was nice and cold. Located right on the town square in a nice small ton in the wine region. Did I mention how good the cubano sandwich was? It was awesome! Will eat here again.

I'm really pumped up by your review, Charlie. To hear that we make the best Cubano you've ever eaten is a huge compliment -- and there's nothing quite like an ice cold beer, is there? Be sure to stop by and see us again soon for more of the same. Cheers, Donovan, Owner More

We went the first night we were there after we ate a very expensive, just okay dinner at a highly recommended restaurant. We just wanted to have a drink and look at their menu.

Sat down for a few cold beers during a summer day. Old school bar with small outdoor seating area. Food looked good and everyone seemed to enjoy it

When in Paso Robles you may need a night "off" from the town's great cuisine, and go for pub food. Pappy's is your place! Very fun to sit outside facing the town square. Service was solid, very pleasant. I loved my burger!

Had a couple hours in Paso Robles and stumbled across this traditional feeling Irish Pub. They have some top notch food and amazingly friendly staff. I got one of their Kobe burgers and I have to say, you absolutely cannot go wrong, with these, and the prices are pretty reasonable too.

I live locally and have eaten here multiple times, the food is great. I especially like the pretzel with cheese fondue. The problem is the staff, service is slow and usually not very friendly.
