Steakhouse
Here, on the Central Coast of California, BBQ has always meant grilling over an open fire of red oak, a style of cooking that is native to our area and goes back to the days of the Spanish Rancheros. By combining the old and the new, we have created an exciting cuisine with outstanding steaks, ribs and chicken, along with fresh fish and seafood and vegetarian options. We also create our own (world class) wines for sale in the restaurant and to the public. Hartley Ostini Hitching Post Wines have garnered an excellent reputation. Try them here or purchase on our website for your enjoyment at home.

    Excellent, attentive server, Jennifer. Food delivery was accurate, rapid. Food was exceptional, cooked to perfection! Chef a grill master! Have been unable to receive a proper and accurately cooked steak for 6+ months. Bussers/support staff equally as exceptional.

    Of course the artichoke appetizer is a requirement. And after, the steaks are terrific, seasoning is delicious. Always a yummy experience.

    Always love our meal here. Our favorite place to eat when we visit Solvang. Steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly to our liking. We love the grilled artichoke appetizer! A must stop for a great meal.

    We came because of Sideways, not expecting much, but we were so impressed. Those steaks were phenomenal and we compared ours, and they were both so different and nuanced. A fantastic spot and I love the ambiance!

    Fourth time here, we had reservations for Saturday night which meant that we were seated on time, great . Had a table between two others, our waiter Aaron had the two on the left, and Gina on the right. The crudités plate was presented by Gina at introduction when she asked about cocktails, ours after the salad. No mention of the specials. We ordered the bake potatoes with our meals and both tables had the fixings brought out before the meal, ours 10 minutes after. We always say please and thank you to our servers, and at $300 for 2, I expected more. The food and wine fantastic as always.

    We’ve enjoyed Hitching Post II many times in the past - always great food etc., but found last night, a busy Sat. night, to be particularly SPECTACULAR because of the teamwork of the servers - not just one, but five with everything flowing so smoothly.
