If you love great food, a wonderful atmosphere and friendly service this is the restaurant for you. Great steaks, chops, seafood they have it all and it is delicious; I have NEVER been disappointed with any meal or service I have received from McPhee's. I highly recommend you stop by and enjoy this wonderful restaurant.

McPhees was recommended to us by our waitress at La Bellasera. The ambience is warm and friendly. The service is good and the food was yummy! We had a bottle of Halter Ranch Syrah. We ordered the wedge it was very crisp, cold and fresh. Them the filet with jalapeños cheese potato with vert haricots. We ended with apricot bread... More

I had the best Porterhouse steak I've ver had in my life. My wife took the filet and I had the New York. The staff were very friendly and the rest of the food was good

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

Locals in the Cambria/Paso Robles/Templeton area all know that this place is one of the best. I have been enjoying Ian McPhee's cooking (and his wife June's Creme Brulee) for over 30 years, first in Cambria at "Ian's" and at "McPhee's Grill" in Templeton. We had a meal on Friday, November 28 that exemplifies the quality: the Filet Mignon was... More

We've been to McPhee's Grill numerous times and have never been disappointment in food, service, presentation, home ambiance. My husband ordered the lunch special this day - meatloaf sandwich on fresh baked rye bread which we shared. Undescribably delicious.

5 of us went to dinner and all ordered steaks, rib eyes & filets. Service was good and prompt. Had a good server. Steaks were very good but the mashed potatoes, both garlic and jalapeno left something to be desired. Had a good selection of wines. Interesting building in an interesting downtown area.

McPhee's used to be our "go to" restaurant for years until we found Koberl at Blue in SLO, which is now our hands down favorite. Some friends wanted to go to dinner and stay in North County, so we chose McPhee's. I called on Friday to make a reservation for 4 for 6:00pm on Sunday. The caller was so efficient... More

Based on the recommendations of several people we met while tasting wine in the Paso area, we went to McPhees for our burger fix. We were not disappointed! The 1/2 lb burgers were absolutely enormous and super juicy and were served with delicious skinny fries. The tempura shrimp and garlic bread appetizers were both piping hot and tasty. The one...
