“Burger King Looks Better!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We started with bottled beer. Thank goodness they can't mess that up. Two other tables complained about the mixed drinks.

We ordered burgers and steak fries. Oops...they ran out of steak fries. But they had plain fries. Okay. The burger was $11. It came with grilled onions and cheese. No tomatoes or lettuce. But they did grill the bread to the point my fingers slithered in grease. Yuck.

Neither of us finished the meal. We would not go back. Where's my pepto bismal?

“Love it here”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Been here before while out looking around. What a pleasant surprise! Just went back yesterday for lunch with my 5 yr old niece. I was a little concerned that it may be too much of a "bar". The initial waiter came right up to our table and gave her a coloring menu and crayons! I was very impressed and thankful. She actually asked if we we in a St. Patrick's Day restaurant. She ordered milk (which they had) and Mac and cheese from the kids menu. I had the ABC burger, avocado, bacon, cheese with all the fixings. My wife had the tomato bisque soup with grilled cheese sandwich. Just killer! Forgot to mention I had the potato leek soup as well. Everything was awesome! Service, food and attitude! Make this one of your stops when in downtown Paso Robles. I didn't have beers this time (with niece) but they are cold and delicious as well. Rock solid place to go.

“Delicious food in a casual setting”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Ate outside at this charming pub on the square in downtown Paso Robles. Mom had the Lobster Pot Pie and called it the best pot pie of her life. Hubster liked the calamari OK, but agreed my Lobster Mac & Cheese was DA BOMB! Oh yeah, and the Garlic French Fries are amazing. Good beer, pretty good value. Staff was very friendly and service was terrific. Added to our favorites list for every visit. (HINT: Ask at your hotel, because they probably have a 10% off coupon available.)

“Fun place in downtown Paso”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Very popular eating and drinking spot on the main square. Good selection of draft beers, good service and food. My wife had a Tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich which was really tasty. I had a Blarney burger that was fantastic. We would definately go back.

“Pretty good pub!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We ate here one evening and found it to be a great place for a salad and a sandwich. Good brews on draft and they know how to make a half and half. Local brews on tap as well. Good service even though we were at the back bar as opposed to the primary bar. Really enjoyed the bleu cheese wedge, grilled cheese and tomato bisque and the chicken cobb salad.
