Actually Visited in May 2013 as a group with a Local from Paso Robles for dinner. Atmosphere was very relaxed, we ate undercover outdoors. Service & Meals were fantastic, all had starters and mains. I had Lamb, best ever, don't tell my wife, everything was fantastic. Deserts and coffee to finish. If I ever get back that way I will... More

Ate dinner at this restaurant on 2/5. What a great surprise as this place looks different than the great quality service and food you will receive. Wine, food and service were top notch. I would not hesitate to return. An excellent experience. I was with friends and was very satisfied. Highly recommended. We had a diverse selection of the menu.... More

Great food and awesome atmosphere. I have experienced the Range twice and both times it has been wonderful. It is a hidden treasure in Santa Margarita that even many locals still don't know about. Enjoy!

Visiting a friend who lives in SLO and she took me here. Wow! Living In the Midwest I know what good meat is, and the lamb chops I had were to die for! Service was great and we brought our own bottle of wine that they happily corked for us. What a great experience!

This place doesn't advertise, only does dinner, doesn't accept cards and will not reserve tables, but it has won the local newspaper competition for best local restaurant for the last 3 years! We just had to try it and were not disappointed. We turned up on the dot of 5pm when it opens and found that two other couples were... More

The Range is totally fabulous! Owners Jeff and Lindsey are wonderful people. The food is amazing especially the elk medallions. I love when there daughter Jade sings on the patio.

With so little information available about this restaurant, we didn't know what to expect, but trusted the TA reviews enough to give it a try. Glad we did, because the whole experience was great. The location is "in the middle of nowhere", next to a volunteer fire station on the quiet, quaint main street of Santa Margarita. We got there... More

A trip to tiny downtown Santa Margarita is worth extra effort! It is hard to say which dish is my favorite because everything I have had has been delicious. I love their salmon with mashed potatoes and spinach with crispy fried onions on top. It has so much flavor in every bite that I really want to lick my plate... More

From the outside, this culinary gem of the Central Coast looks like an old-style cowboy bar in the Old West. Upon entering, you hear Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline, and the hostess politely letting a caller know that they don't take reservations. In the entry, you see weathered album covers of country greats from the 50s and 60s. The hostess... More
