Arrived for an early dinner just after dark. Fortunately we had made a reservation which was just as well because the place was almost full at this early hour. A bit like driving into a Wild West town with wide street and interesting buildings. The...More

We had several friends recommend McPhee's as a great place to eat if we were going to be in the area. Even though we stayed in SLO we made the trek to try McPhee's and were glad that we did. The service was prompt, professional...More

The décor of this place is very charming. The food is good. I had the Jidori Chicken with mashed potatoes and it was good but didn't blow me away. I would probably eat here again, if in town.

What great food!!! Great oak fired sirloin, ribs were really good. Ask to substitute for the sweet potato fries, they are to die for. Had the hot fudge sundae for dessert.

This is a great spot in a quaint, little town. The crab cake was excellent, and the duck quesadilla and goat cheese, prosciutto wrapped figs were tasty. Super nice staff. Quick service. Restaurant space located in pleasant old building.

Great dinner and the best double cut pork chop I have ever had. Slow roasted loin with bone in. Then cut and grilled to perfection with an ancho chile apricot glaze that was amazing. It was the most moist and lean pork chop ever!! It...More

A good place to have a delicious lunch! Macadamia encrusted halibut or salmon (depending on availability) with Japanese coleslaw and a nicely chilled Chardonnay was fabulous!

Locals referred us to McPhee’s and it was a great find. Everything we had was delicious, service was very good and everyone was friendly. Our pork chop dinner was big enough for 2 and it was the best we have ever had.

Yes there is and unfortunately its one of the highest out there. If I remember (and I could be wrong) its about $20. Better to just go and have their wine. Their house wines are very good.

I've lived in Templeton since I was 11 years old... Back when it was a po-dunk farm town. It's definitely lost that vibe and become more of a yupee feel, which I hate, but unfortunately it's the way things go when you live... More
