McPhee's was recommended by our B&B and we had a great meal. Food was delicious and service was fun. The pork chop was like no other! :)

Friends brought us here for a birthday dinner and we were delighted! Wonderful courteous service, staff was accommodating and attentive. My friend had the park chop and it was huge! I had the seafood tostada which was swordfish with yummy Asian slaw on top. Would definitely eat here again. Save room for dessert.

Decided to try this resturant in Templeton, CA. Atmosphere was nice. Waitress was very pleasant. Nice selection of local wines. I ordered a salad which was fresh and well seasoned. Kobe Burger was delicious as were the fries. Husband had a pork chop which was tender and tasty. Sevice was attentive. Prices were fair.

We've been to McPhee's Grill every time we go to Paso. Love the food, love the atmosphere and love the staff. Great appetizers (love the grilled artichoke) the steaks are fantastic and fish is always delicious and fresh. Lots of locals here. Really glad we found this gem.

We were pleased to be seated just minutes before they were supposed to close between lunch and dinner-was so nice of them. And the food was delicious. We all had burgers and the bacon and beef was smokey, the fries crispy. It was a great pit stop!

I have to say this was the largest pork chop I have ever had. Tasty too! McPhee's is located in the quaint town of Templeton. They have a nice selection of wines at reasonable prices.

The steak was so tender that it seem to melt in my mouth. Vegetable were good too. Chocolate Decadence was good, but a bit too rich.

This is my favorite restaurant, Ian McPhee does it right. From the moment you step inside, the smell of the wood fire sets the mood. Delish!

I visited in April with my sister-in-law and a friend (both Californians) while on a vacation from St. Louis. The food was amazing as was the service.
