Once again we had a delicious dinner! This is our go to spot in the county! Great friendly staff with very good service even when they are super busy. Love the outdoor seating: summertime in Margarita. and always the specials too, The most difficult thing is deciding what to order as both the regular menu and the specials are always... More

As Texans visiting the Central Coast, we had this place both highly recommended to us ("great foodie spot!") and were warned off it ("I'm sure you have better steakhouses at home") and, boy, are we glad we tried it for ourselves. Everything from service to food to decor was honest and wonderful, and it's not just a "steak place." Beautiful... More

The wind picked up so we did get a bit of a breeze; but still liked it. The food is excellent, with well prepared sauces. We had the prime... More

To say Range is unassuming would be an understatement. But once you enter, it's amazing. We sat outside under cover on a beautiful night. The tables are large, so they are likely to be shared with others. We ordered primarily off an extensive daily specials list which came highly recommended by our server, who was excellent. Prices are reasonable. The... More

While we can't afford to eat here every night, we have been going the Range for every birthday and anniversary for years. We love this place. While it's popularity has grown over the years, there expansion outside has kept pace with the growth. At this point, we have finally tried everything on the menu. But it was a hard task... More

I've been visiting San Luis Obispo to visit my kids in college for 8 years and have tried every hotel and restaurant. Got this hot tip while have a glass of wine at the B & B we were staying at, Took our graduating son on our last visit. What a great hidden treasure.
