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

Ate here at 7pm after wine fest. The place was filled with drunk people enjoying the live music. We ate on the front patio, where we could hear the music but not deal with the riff raff. Service was good until we were ready to leave. Food came out quick. Nothing special about the Kobe burgers. Wedge salad is huge.... More

We came here mid afternoon, looking for something to eat and take a break from wine for a moment. The food is typical pub food, not special, but not too bad.
