We eat here often and it is always excellent. I know people who travel over 100 miles to just eat here, it is that good. Best steaks, and service in the area,

We were so sorry we stopped in Templeton for dinner. We ordered the filet mignon, but what we got was a cheaper cut of meat that must have had half a jar of tenderizer on it. That's all we could taste. There were three large parties, and nothing was done to keep people from yelling or kids from running around.... More

Not a place to go for a relaxing meal. It was very crowded and noisy. A friend wanted to go there and said it was one of the best in the area.I was sorely disappointed. The food selection was limited. The portions were small ( I came away hungry and stopped at a fast food place for a snack). The... More

This place was recommended by a few people and I'm stunned as to why. The setting was real strange and the food was okay. Would definitely not recommend and will not be back.

Come as you are and enjoy an extravaganza. The portions are HUGE! All comes with soup and salad. Soup is terrific---be sure to add the condiments brought with it!! Hope you can walk out!!! I try to order from the 'early bird' so I don't have to take most of my dinner home.

We were there for my granddaughter's 15th birthday. The soup was barely lukewarm and tasted like it was canned instead of fresh. Chicken was dry. The teenager loves this place, but I've always found the food to be mediocre.

I notice the main pictures here are not of the original in Templeton, but the newer one down by one of the beach cities. The original in Templeton is old west, like the whole town. You'll think you've gone back a hundred years except for the cars in the streets. Anyway, the restaurant is fantastic and it's the best steakhouse... More

This place has THE best steaks on the Central Coast of California, hands down! The only thing we disliked was the fact that as hard as we tried, none of us could finish the huge, mouthwatering portions!!

we visited on a Wednesday night. Service was friendly. Portions were large (stew, beans, potatoes, and salad are included with entrees). My steak was on the salty side, which was confirmed by the waitress as part of the house seasoning. After dinner, we received a liquor beverage at no charge. Overall, better than average.
