Just Amazing!

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.

The atmosphere and the lighting sets the mood up for a quaint evening. They don't charge you a corkage fee if you buy the first bottle from them which worked out for us. The quality of the food was great, you really do get what you pay for here. Waitress was on the spot with everything and knew when to... More

Being from Orange County I have visited my fair share of steakhouses and am a little bit of a beef snob. This place does not disappoint. With both amazing food (Filet Mignon, Thick Pork Chop, Blackberry Cobbler) and warm friendly service (thank you Kathy B.) I would give it more than 5 stars if I could (and trust me I... More

Every year we come up and stay for Thanksgiving weekend and we always spend Thanksgiving evening having dinner at McPhee's Grill. They have a limited menu that day with Turkey Dinner being one of the selections. You get lots of turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, apple-sage stuffing, cranberries and you can even bring in your own bottle of... More
