“Loved this little Restaurant”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

It came highly recommended but it looked like it might be a little questionable. Two unescorted ladies took and chance and We were delighted! Excellent food and service. Both the salmon and the steak were perfect, vegetables were delicious and the plates were beautifully presented. Don't be fooled by the exterior!

“Great local food”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

IF you like barbeque or just a good steak, this is the place. Several beers on tap and a wonderful place to experience Santa Maria style barbeque. Highly recomended!

“Tasty”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

The food is good, but not as good as Jockos or Shaws. I think the seasoning could be better and the portions could be bigger.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

About two years ago now The Swiss was re-invented! It had a remodel done and I think that the bar and restaurant split (although they are still together obviously). However, the restaurant was takend over by someone who CLEARLY "gets it"! Outstanding food and a reasonable price. Somehow, unlike some other "steak houses" they still manage to do their steaks at lunch over the red oak too which, for my money, makes it the best steak for lunch in Santa Maria. I need to go there for dinner soon! You won't be dissapointed!
