Excellent!

Great food, interesting atmosphere. Blue cheese burger was perfectly cooked and on great bread. Filet was well cooked, potatoes were bland but who needs them? Nice local wine list. Service was pleasant!

Visiting the Paso area and decided to give this place a try. We were greeted and seated immediately upon arrival. The waiter was quick to arrive with the specials for the night and great recommendations. We had pizza, fish, & pasta dishes. I had the double cut pork chop. This thing was more like a triple cut pork chop...it was... More

Little stood out here except the ridiculously good and enormous pork chop. Avoid the noisy back room. The very attentive and knowledgeable wait staff were the best part of the experience. My advice is to arrive early to sit in one of the 2 front rooms and order the pork chop (they will cut it for 2 )

Hamburger, pizza and tasty entrees seem to come together very nicely, as if in a major big city with demanding high standards, in this quaint little restaurant on the main street of Templeton

My wife and I were passing through town and someone recommended we try McPhee's Grill. We were glad we did. I had their flat bread pizza which was good. My wife had the bacon cheeseburger which was outstanding as was the shoestring fries that was served with it. The waitress could've been a little friendlier, but she did a good... More

We recently visited family in Templeton and had the good luck to be taken to McPhees. They noted that an older friend had made McPhees an annual jaunt from So Cal when visiting the SLO Jazz Festival. Today I understand why! McPhees is a wonderful blend of an old building with wonderful decor blended with very good food and menu,... More
