Amazing food! We are staying at the hotel and decided to come here for dinner after we noticed the meat slow grilling when we cheeked in.The waitress was outstanding. She was prompt and her customer service was on point.The food was delicious we ordered the prime rib, pork ribs, bacon wrapped dates, beet salad and oysters. All amazing!! Would highly recommend if you are in the area!

Hidden gem. The atmosphere is nice but the real star is the food. The 
grilled trout was cooked perfectly. The flavor was great and the 
charred veggies were a nice surprise. The seafood pasta was also 
really good, excellent scallops. Lastly, we ordered the oysters with 
the apple mignonette. Spectacular! Will definitely be back. Yum!

Our server Mike was very friendly and made some great recommendations for appetizers. Our entrees came out shortly after, which were truly fantastic—I had the ribeye and my wife had the roasted chicken. This is definitely the best restaurant we've been to in Atascadero, and we live here!

I attended their "soft opening" with some friends after a recent Wine & Art event in town, and the food was absolutely phenomenal. Everything tasted great and we left feeling like we'd had a terrific meal. The staff was all very kind, friendly and fun; I think this place is going to absolutely shine.
