“One of Atascadero's grown up restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

While we found this restaurant somewhat noisy the menu was one of the more varied and sophisticated in Atascadero. My husband jokes that if we want something other than Burgers, BBQ, Chinese or Mexican food.... we have to go to Paso or SLO. This restaurant is the exception.

“Atascadero Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This little restaurant is tucked away in a shopping center that that no longer has the huge magnet grocery store pulling in customers for it. Yet it has survived mainly because the locals know the food is excellent. It features dishes ranging from steaks to pasta, with my favorite being the fettuccine which is excellent. It offers a full service bar and many very good wines from the central coast region. Prices vary but I would consider them to be on the low to moderate level.

Had a nice lunch here with friends.
Helpful friendly service and very nice food at decent prices. They didn't fuss about substitutions at all.
I'll be back!

“Guest House Grill a winner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This cozy bar and grill are down the street from where we live and is a fun, pop-in kind of place.
Great Happy Hour, with music on the patio during the summer months. Great Long Island Ice Teas and tapas. They also run a special nightly. The steak and lobster special is wonderful. Check with the restaurant for weekly special list. Staff is attentive and friendly. Brunch is supposed to be fantastic, altho I have yet to try it. This is one of a very few good restaurants in Atascadero. We hope they continue to succeed and thrive.

“Great food for a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Once again I am super impressed by Guest House Grill. First time for Sunday brunch, but have enjoyed lots of good dinners there. One person had eggs benedict (California style- with avocado) I had breakfast crepes. Good gin bloody Marys refils on iced teas and soft drinks. If you plan to go for steak and lobster special - make reservations and go EARLY as they run out fast. Grilled ahi salad is awesome!
