I've visit the Black Sheep whenever I'm in SLO and always feel at home. The bartender, wait staff and cooks are all friendly which explains why the Sheep has so many friendly regulars. You have to get the Mac & Cheese at least once and the Baby Spinach salad is surprisingly decadent.

We go here frequently and are always pleased with the service. The bartenders remember who you are and even what you drink, hard to get service like that any more. Also have great bar food and give a good pour! Will continue to frequent this local establishment.

We stopped by in this place for a night cap on a Saturday night . Place was still packed late at night but service was very good and quick. Can't beat the location ,smack in the middle of the downtown scene. The mango Tango is a killer cocktail.

Nice bar & grill with indoor seating and an outdoor patio. Service was not the quickest but our server was friendly & helpful. We really like their Nachos and Mac and Cheese!

There in the middle of summer, knowing there would be less college students but some tourists, but the place was full. It took 20 minutes for drinks including water and she completely forgot about one for over a half an hour. Maybe ok for a stiff drink but not if you want them to keep coming...

Best Mac n' cheese ever!!!!

Paired the whole thing with local wines and beers, but then switched to amazing... More

We dined here on our first night and were very pleased. The 805 beer turned out to be a favorite. The burgers were great and the shrimp pasta was enough to take some back and enjoy the next evening. We enjoyed the local feel and everyone was very nice.
