We both had the fish tostada and found it to be excellent! Comfortable setting, and great service. McPhee's remains a reliable choice for great food and ambiance. Highly recommended.

When my friends from out of town visit, my first choice to impress is always McPhee's. The food and the service is always excellent. Templeton is a small country town and so different from Los Angeles.

Enjoyed the quiet setting and very good food: Local lamb chops, pork chops, and King Salmon. We were given a bread basket with three different breads.

McPhee's Grill is a great choice for dining in the Paso Robles/Templeton area. It's meat heavy but they also have a lot of non-meat alternatives. The dining areas are very comfortable and the service is attentive. We were a large group of 8 and they...More

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
