“Where does Ian find his fresh meat, fish, and vege's?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We are a frequent guest at McPhee's and can't believe how the great food keeps getting better each year. The service staff knows their stuff and always provide exceptional service, even on Friday and Saturday nights. We normally never eat dessert, but the after dinner treats are not to be missed. This place is off-the-hook amazing.

“Templeton's Mainstay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

McPhee's is always a great place to go. The food is always good and it's reliable. Wine prices tend to be high....

“Small town charm with very good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

A friend and I had lunch at this small town gem. Our sandwiches were very good. I had the pulled pork and my friend had an angus burger. We shared a lemon sorbet with raspberry sauce for dessert. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. A fun, old time atmosphere. I hadn't been to Mcphee's in over ten years and I really don't know why I waited so long to return. If you are in the Templeton area this is one place you should not miss.

“Yummy...but not exactly what we were expecting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

So many people told us to go here that maybe our hopes were a little too high. Don't get me wrong, the food was good -- especially the grilled artichoke, duck quesadilla and special berry crisp dessert, but not as amazing or inventive as we had hoped. This is definitely the place to go, because winery after winery told us to go here, so maybe we just ordered things that were not their specialty...the pork chop is supposed to amazing, but we weren't in the mood that night. Overall, we'd most likely give it another try if in the area, but it wouldn't be our first choice.
