Had a wonderful evening with family. This is a must visit if you want a great and unique meal. The food is perfectly seasoned and the service is outstanding. It's a great place in a quaint town where you can have dinner or lunch especially if you want to impress a special friend.

Highly recommend dropping in at McPhee's café. We enjoyed an amazing burger, veggie burger and fish and chips. In the same building as the Hearst winery so you can kill two birds with one stone. Natural and homey environment. Staff was amazing and friendly. We will come back on our next trip!!!

My drunken family and I visited McPhee's after a day of wine tasting in Paso Robles. They were so kind and accommodating (we're happy drunks), the food and beverages were outstanding, and the atmosphere is top-notch farm-chic.

Everything on the menu is great but the pork chop is by far the best I've had. It's super thick and perfectly cooked. The sauce that comes with it brings it all home. Thus place is a must if your in the area.

Love a steakhouse in a historic building that lives up to its reputation for many years. A hidden gem in an old cattle town.

The patty was substantial. The French fries were just so-so. Tasty bread was served before the meal. Oil and vinegar was on the table. Our... More

McPhee's Grill is one of our favorite restaurants on the Central Coast, for many reasons; but for us, the best reason is that it is only two blocks from our home, in beautiful, historic downtown Templeton. We love the cozy, country atmosphere & decor. The food is always delicious; from the double cut pork chop to the rib-eye, to the... More
