We were in town for a wedding, and the hotel recommended this place as a lively place to go. I just wondered how we miscommunicated that we wanted to drink (good luck getting served), eat (slow, cold when served, overpriced, and pretty flavorless) and hang out (that actually was accommodated--but it also would have been nice to hear each other,...

We split a Cuban sandwich and it was enough for each of us-very good. A good beer selection and the fries they brought with sandwich are about the best I ever had.

Happy hour has delicious snacks and meals to wash the wine and beer down, nice atmosphere too, friendly service. Try the lobster Mac and cheese and the stack of onion rings. We'll always go back.

Can't go wrong when there's music and drinks! After a day of wine tasting, it was a welcomed and refreshing return to vodka soda! Since we had visited the other 1 of 2 bars open after 10pm in Paso the night before, Pappy's was the obvious next choice and did not disappoint. The bartender was friendly, the drinks were strong...

Had the Nacho's appetizer which was very good, and large portions of beef as well, we both had the Cubano sandwich which were "very" good as well, which is... More

This rating is for the mac and cheese. We have eaten at too many of these places to count. You can usually count on good food from the local pubs. Guess we chose the wrong food. We had the mac and cheese/ bacon for $20 and it was absolutely the worst tasting mac and cheese we have ever eaten. It... More

Went here on a Sat night after a wedding. Apparently so did everyone else as the place was packed. The staff was nice and the bouncers were on their game. DJ was on with the music. The 3 star rating is due to the number of people they let in. It was way too crowded. They also need more restrooms.... More

I had the tuna sandwich, my companion had the wagyu hot dog. Both were very good. Service was quick. Ambiance was cool. Overall, good choice for a hearty lunch.

We stopped in Paso Robles for lunch to take a break from driving back home to Salinas from L.A. It was just a random choice but a very good one indeed. The Cubano Sandwich caught my eye which is what I ordered. It was a perfect (half) size with awesome garlic fries for only 7.50 during lunch hours. My husband... More
