“So good we went back the next night!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

We were spending another a couple of days in paso Robles decided to try cool hand Luke's for my birthday steak dinner, service was quick and attentive, went for a dinner combo New York steak and raspberry chipotle ribs which came with campfire beans , bread rolls and dinner salad in fact so much food I couldn't face the apple bread pudding I had promised myself on the way in past the dessert cooler! My wife had the 500 club tri tip dinner with asparagus we had a couple of glasses of wine , a beer and a margarita and were surprised at the excellent value .
Value is always good but even better when the food and service is this good! We went back the next night for some appetisers and my dessert! Sat on the bar balcony and had another great meal!

“Great atmosphere, OK food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Enjoyed dinner here. The atmosphere is fun, relaxed. The steak was average - but appropriate for the price. Not a place for an intimate dinner if you want top quality beef, but for a hearty meal, average prices and relaxed dinner, it's worth a stop.

“Skip it. Less than average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Really wanted good bbq. This wasnt even close....we had prime rib...ribs (two kinds), shrimp...and chicken. All 5 of us had mediocre food. The highlight was a martini in bar. The experience was very surprising considering the area.

“Good steak in Paso Robles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

We ended up in Paso Robles after the National Parks were closed, and wanted a steak. Concierge at the hotel recommended this place. Quite a find.
We opted to sit at the bar, instead of the restaurant, for a few pre-dinner drinks, the food. The New York strip, with blue cheese was excellent, as were the coconut shrimp. Wife had the Caesar salad, small, (which was huge!). great food and not a bad price.
Couple of great bartenders in Wally and Joe. Mixed up cocktails and shots for us all night. Left feeling somewhat wobbly but having had a fantastic evening!

“Good steakhouse with very nice staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

Stopped for a nice dinner driving back to Valencia from Monterey. Loved the atmosphere, the very pleasant staff and food was very good. A little pricy, but on par for a steakhouse.
