Locals in the Cambria/Paso Robles/Templeton area all know that this place is one of the best. I have been enjoying Ian McPhee's cooking (and his wife June's Creme Brulee) for over 30 years, first in Cambria at "Ian's" and at "McPhee's Grill" in Templeton. We...More

We've been to McPhee's Grill numerous times and have never been disappointment in food, service, presentation, home ambiance. My husband ordered the lunch special this day - meatloaf sandwich on fresh baked rye bread which we shared. Undescribably delicious.

McPhee's used to be our "go to" restaurant for years until we found Koberl at Blue in SLO, which is now our hands down favorite. Some friends wanted to go to dinner and stay in North County, so we chose McPhee's. I called on Friday...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 am glad to know about your experience. I have the impression of Templeton being an uptight, conservative town! Other diners might be able to weigh in here about your message. I hope so.
