GREAT LATE NIGHT STEAK

The Pub is a wonderful place to go if you are looking for a mid evening dinner. They have a nice bar and are known for their steaks and Prime Rib. Two of us had steaks and the other Prime Rib. We all left very satisfied. The service was outstanding. The booth that we were assigned was a little... read more

The décor, or feel, of this restaurant reminds me of the old Brown Derby restaurant on Wilshire Blvd., in L.A. The high-back leather booths, the pictures of yesteryear on the walls, coupled with a very friendly staff, and of course, delicious food, is why I give The Growers Pub 5 stars. My wife took me here yesterday for Father’s Day.... More

The atmosphere was great. Leans more towards "business class". Just a great place to have a beer and meal when in town in business

Sort of important to get the name right. Makes it harder to search when a review sight didn't do enough homework to confirm the true name. Even the link that is posted here takes you to the GROWERS PUB-not "THE PUB" although I realize in Salinas, it may be "THE pub.

I enjoyed a first-rate prime rib dinner, there, 2 days ago.....with baked potato....absolutely tender and delicious. Service was fast and courteous. My first visit, and, will definitely return next year when I will be staying in Salinas for the Monterey Jazz Festival.

Had the pork ribs, plus a beer, and still paid $30. The athmosphere is quite nice but nothing reallly to get excited about. I feel it's a bit overrated in Tripadvisor

Exploring your own backyard can hold fun times for frolicking and local flavor. Salinas you say? Well, I say so. I took a half day of vacation to travel to Salinas from San Jose, CA to attend the Salinas Pro Bull Riding event. The day however started out with a little fun shopping at the Boot Barn. Great store for... More

Stopped in for lunch while we were in Salinas and we were surprised by how delicious everything was. There were only two other groups in the restaurant at the time, as we were there on a week day a little after noon. We both got open face sandwiches (the prime rib and skirt steak) and they were wonderful. I highly... More

Went out with a customer and employees...third time there, first for lunch. The place is cozy, intimate, and warm. As for atmosphere and vibe, they have it at teh right spot on the dial. The service is also very attentive, actually too attentive. Waiters and bus boys were constantly hovering, interrupting, and interfering with what was obviously a business meal.... More

This is a great place. Dark wooden booths, seasoned wait staff, great all-american food. It really feels like an upscale steak house from the forties or fifties like the ones that still exist in New York or Chicago. Not what i was expecting in Salinas at all. I've only had lunch there and it was delicious and the service was... More
