We return to McPhee's grill this year again, a short drive from Paso Robles. The place remains unchanged..and decor is downright old style western California.

Nothing to dislike here. Great service, great ambiance and the food was fantastic. I am actually writing this review before reading any other reviews. However, I have to imagine that many others have raved about the double cut (and bu double cut, there are two ribs and it's at least 2 inches thick) pork chop. They cook this big bad... More

Second time here, wanted to revisit before writing review. Service and atmosphere were great, food was good but slightly overpriced, was expecting more. Have had better at other restaurants for less $$$.

and that was clearly a case of racism ! Not sure what the reason was at McPhee's. We walked in and waited and waited and waited at the hostess station. Given that the restaurant was very busy (Sunday night), we didn't mind waiting. However, what is inexcusable is that the barman looked in our direction several times and at least... More

Had a great meal here last weekend. Beautifully prepared food, served nicely with great wines; what could be better! I had the pork chop - incredible and perfectly prepared. Our entire party of four had a wonderful evening. Do not not miss this place.

I always know that my experience at McPhee's will be fantastic. Whether it's dinner, brunch, a special event, they never disappoint. The food is top notch and the service is great. One of my favorite restaurants.
