Decent pizza, Fair prices

We enjoyed a casual dinner here with my husband and son on a recent trip to Templeton. We had a Cesar Salad and a Tuscan pizza. Both were quite good. Not mind blowing, but solid 4 stars. Would come again.

We love Griffs for the pizza, but their salads are great too. The side salads are generous, my favorite is the spinach salad with warm bacon dressing on the side. My husband loves the side Cesear salad and we split a medium pizza. Plenty to take home. End Post Cab is great too, since I am not a beer drinker.... More

Near the vineyards and fine for bite in a quaint little pizza joint. Heads up though, if don't like really salty avoid the thin crust pie with prosciutto - they are generous with it but so thirsty later.

We picked up a simple cheese and pesto pizza to take to the concert in the park. It was tasty and still good as leftovers in our wine-tasting picnic the next day.

The Staff is Friendly. We Live localy and we enjoy eating at Griff's Pizzeria & Bistro few times a year. We have really come to like their Cowboy Cob Salad and Garlic bread. The pizza is always good also. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family.

Have been here several times now and never disappoints. Salads are fantastic and abundant and the rest of the menu is great too.

After hearing good things about Griff's we finally ordered a pizza to go last Friday evening. We ordered the Classic Italian Combo - after paying top price for a "gourmet" pizza we were extremely disappointed. The crust was very soggy - you could not even pick a piece up. There were so many olives on top we had to knock... More

Scott and I don't eat out often but had heard such great things about Griff's. We definitely were not disappointed. We shared the pepperoni pizza and a great salad and it could not have been better. I have not ever been a big fan of pizza (I know I am weird!) but that pizza was exceptional and the salad even... More

Griff's has undergone new ownership in the recent past, and the food is as good as before, and there are daily creative specials in addition to the regular menu. Locals from Templeton and the north county support this pizza restaurant because of the great food, the family-friendly atmosphere, and the small town vibe. It's our version of "Cheers," where the...

Griff’s is a casual Templeton eatery which offers decent pizza, entrees, and salads. I particularly love the Cowboy Cobb. The chicken on the salad is warm and juicy, and the garlic ranch adds a new twist to an old classic. I also like the cracker crust, “ultra thin” pizza crusts. They also offer panini, calzones, and have a blackboard of... More
