If you are looking for a nice, relaxing dining experience, Guest House Grill is the place. You can choose to sit in a cozy booth, open space dining table, or outdoors on a deck with heat or fans when needed. Servers are friendly. A full bar is available with limited seating at the bar. Great basic food with a variety... More

We've been there before. The food was better two years ago. My wife had the lobster and steak. It was over cooked. I had the lamb. Just o.k....nothing to write home about. We won't be looking to come back real soon. I was thinking it was one of the best restaurants in Atascadero before our trip tonight. For the price,... More

This is a fantastic place!! The food was pronominal! The prices are a little high but definitely what I would consider worth paying! I had the filet and my coworker the chicken recommended by the staff. We added calamari for an appetizer and cheese cake for dessert. We were both very happy with our meals!

I'd eaten here once before but it was so good I went again rather than look for someplace new. Once again it was great!

Although the food was good the inattentive server damped our experience. We did arrive a little later in the evening 7:30p ( restaurants close earlier in Atascadero) we were given a menu a left alone for a considerable time. The server came back to take orders but we had questions about specials and menu items which is limited. The server... More

This is one of my most favorite restaurants. Started and owned by a local young man who has done an excellent job. Food is great. Atmosphere is comfortable. Staff is friendly. Love it!

A really sad experience for our grad. We were told we could have a table for an hour and ten minutes only as a reserved party was due in at that time. We agreed as that seemed reasonable for our small party of three. The problem was the kitchen couldn't accommodate the plan. One of us got his meal and... More
