An intimate little restaurant on the South side of Atascadero. The service is charming and the ambiance is wonderful. Their Chicken Pesto Sandwich is to die for along with their sweet potato fries. The steak is alway cooked well and the lobster was actually quit good! Always a pleasure to dine there!

A great little restaurant with good food, good beer, great service, and great music. What more can you ask for? It was the best experience on a cool August evening on the patio with a cold beer, great ribs and steak, and some live music which made our dinner a truly fun, relaxing experience. Even the kids gave top ratings to this restaurant.
We went on a Friday night and they had live music (soft rock, folkish music) from 7pm.
You have to go here if you're even remotely in the area.

We are german tourists travelling through the western USA and this restaurant is our favorite! We tried the ribs and the ribeye steak and it was very delicious and we recommend it! It is hard to find (near a Mall at the Main Street) but it is worth it! You will have a nice dinner with very courteous waitresses and - i forgot - a very good lemonade. :)

We have been going to Guest House since it opened. It is owned by a couple of guys who are Cal Poly SLO graduates I believe. They go out of their way to make sure the restaurant is beautiful, and the food and service are top notch.

They have a large outdoor patio as well as the indoor seating. Indoor has cozy booths and also tables with chairs. There is also a bar that seats about 8 people and they serve beer and wine.

They have specials some nights of the week, which are very good, except the spaghetti special which I didn't like, but for an inexpensive meal, it was ok. Everything else is excellent. Their ranch salad dressing is a favorite, really great flavor and the salads are excellent, garden, ceasar, etc. They start you at dinner with a plate of sour dough like bread with an olive tapenade that is heavenly.

I like to eat vegetarian sometimes and they do serve a great garden burger, and they also have a vege. sandwich on a chabatta roll. They have sweet potatoe fries or regular. At dinner they have garlic mashed potatoes that need more garlic in my opinion but they are very good. They also have rice I think. I usually get some kind of potatoes. Their steaks are really good, and their Guest House Burger is Angus beef.

Honestly my whole family of 4, son 14, daughter 23, husband 56, we all look forward to going to dine at Guest House as much as possible. You will love it. If something is not done the way you like it, just tell them and they will make it right for you. The servers are also very good and you won't be ignored. They have good deserts too.

Love it!
