Fodor's Review

Just south of Paso Robles in tiny Templeton, this casual chophouse in an 1860s wood-frame storefront serves sophisticated, contemporary versions of traditional Western fare such as oak-grilled filet mignon and cedar-planked salmon. The house-label wines, made especially for the restaurant, are quite good.

Love this place

Excellent food that never disappoints and they cater to families with kids too so you can enjoy great food & wine without the whine from the kids. We go out of our way to stop here every time we are remotely in the area. It's a must try.

Can you say Blue Cheese Butter!!

McPhee's is my favorite place in the area. Don't go Sun or Mon, Ian McPhee doesn't cook. Nice, comfortable atmosphere. Filet is the best and don't forget the Flourless Chocolate Cake for dessert.

Best in the County

Best place to eat in the county. Always different items to choose from, yet the favorites of the past are always available.
