Great place to stop for lunch near the 101. The portion sizes are huge so definitely doggy bag territory. The Kobe burger was really delicious, flame grilled but so juicy. Kids means we're great value. Definitely worth a visit. Local olive oil on the tables and a great long local wine list.

I have eaten in many steak houses around the country. I can honestly say I have never had a better Pork Chop then the one I ate at McPhees's!. The Double Cut Chop was Baked at a low temperature for 4 hours and then finished on a grill with barbeque Sauce. It was so tender I could have cut it... More

Talking to a tasting room manager about the best ribs in town, and he recommended McPhee's. He was right, GREAT ribs! Made a reservation on a Saturday night, table was ready on time, now wait, even though the walk ins were waiting, great service, great wine, would highly recommend the 7 mile drive south of Paso, it is worth it!

We were told to go to this place, which we did not regret.... not anything fancy, but a real good dinner. Fine place and very helpful personel. A super place for an ordinary dinner. We come back

We stayed in Paso Robles and were looking to try somewhere new. Mcphees fit that, a few miles from Paso Robles in Templeton. Great service, nice wine list, and superb food. The steaks were great as well as the chicken. The desserts were great. They make homemade fudge for their ice cream and cake.

This restaurant has been popular with locals for 24 years and is consistently great. We had guests visiting and made a reservation to dine here. What a great choice! Everyone had a 5 star meal. Three of us had the scallop special and loved it. Another popular choice was the pork chops. The seasonal salad was just the right portion... More

They seated us right away on a busy Friday night. We weren't in the mood for their famous grilled meats, so had the grilled artichoke, the salt & pepper chicken, and the grilled poblano chile. The food and the wine were excellent; would love to go back and try some of their other lauded dishes. It's a big, lively place... More

Rustic decor with excellent American food. The sirloin steak was cooked as ordered and ribs were juicy and tender. The wines were moderately priced. Highly recommend.

Thank jpvegas52
