Its a local place for us and we are quite familiar with the different dishes. Like steak? Filet Mignon. Rack of lamb is outstanding. Grilled shrimp is awesome. Grilled artichoke is a must order. But this recent trip we went for the hambuger night. As a friend once said " a religious experience" that about sums up the bacon cheeseburger combo. Amazing! And the sauce that comes on the side is pure heaven. What is it? They have a great wine list and the wines are served at the right temperature. Its moderately expensive so be ready.
Delicious food , wonderful waitress and lovely night out
This is one of my favorite place when I travel to the area they have great food, wine and service.
The food was delicious. Great steak house. There aren't many good steak houses left anymore.
This place was amazing. I cannot imagine a better meal for a reasonable price at this level of dining.
Once you've had steak (or anything else) cooked over oak, you will likely find other methods don't measure up. HP2 is a go-to destination for specials occasions or when friends are visiting.
All the steaks are delicious and perfectly cooked. Salmon and swordfish we had the other night rocked. It's not a cheap night out, but the team there delivers on excellent food and service with zero pretension and warm hospitality.
I was surprised that I was charged $15 for three sherbets at the end of the meal. We eat at the other Hitching Post Casmalia quite often and the sherbet is included. Other than that it was a nice experience.
Great meal and a very knowledgeable server who directed us with the local wines...and no, we Sid not drink f**king merlot.
Great second time here‼️
Originally had a dinner reservation with some golf buddies but got there early and sat at the bar. We ended up deciding to eat right there. Oscar the bartender was great and the food as usual really good. Great destination post golf, wine tasting or whatever.
We tried their Hamburger Nite. It was great. The burger was cooked to order with a olive of fries or green salad. It was fabulous! Looking forward to steak sandwich nite on Tuesday nites.
We were at the beginning of their night! What a wonderful dining experience. We are generally not early diners, but I’m glad with the change. I enjoyed every part of the meal as well as the most excellent service. Thank you!
Hitching Post II is the place to go for a great meal and great service! I loved the atmosphere; kinda homey and inviting. We loved the food! The swordfish was cooked perfectly, as were the ribs. And the chocolate cake ala mode was to die for! We will definitely be back!
Would not recommend this place! Special date night and we were stuck back in a corner next to a party of drunk 8 guys who were very loud and obnoxious and the waitress kept feeding into their loudness which average 85-90 decibels on my decibel meter. My top sirloin came out grossly undercooked, but my wifes filet mignon came out perfect and tasted perfect.
The rib chop was excellent. Didn’t outweigh the noise, tired decor and price. Barely enough vegetables on the appetizer tray for 4 people and seriously, a basket of crackers?
Top notch food. We were sad that Brad was out ill. We so look forward to his Chocolate Peanutbutter Pie. Next visit, you're on our list Brad. Get to feeling better soon!
Service seemed rush and annoyed. Didn’t get our toast.
The service here was fantastic, we loved speaking with the staff who were all very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The food really hit the spot after a long day of travelling, the first meal of our California road trip. The chicken was delicious, and my husband really enjoyed the sirloin steak. Definitely recommended.
While my steak and vegetables were quite delicious, HP absolutely does NOT accommodate anyone with a food allergy nor diabetes (my sisters have both). They could not have any main course cooked on the grill so they had to order a salad or shrimp cocktail to start and a baked potato for dinner. How sad in today's times there are still restaurants who have waiters with whom you have to "argue" in order to explain No salt, No onions or garlic means "none." HP has a wonderful grill -what a waste to eliminate a restaurant because they are not current in 2018.
Outstanding grilled steaks. Don’t skimp; order it thick & juicy!
Our steaks were tasty, cooked as we requested, but food accompaniments, service, and ambiance were less than stellar. We felt very rushed throughout our meal—as though the server couldn’t wait to turnover our table. It is very noisy too. We barely had time to read through the extensive wine list before our server asked twice for our order. The vegetable tray looked unappetizing with dried up raw carrots and celery. The place is starting to look rundown. Buy the Magic Stuff and grill your steaks at home instead.
been a 10 year gap since last time a had a chance to be in the area. Everything is as good or better than ever. will not be 10 years again
We came for a birthday dinner in my honor and Genevieve took very good care of us despite the workload she had. The mushrooms always are a nice start to our meal. Two steaks and an order of chicken made all walk out pleasantly full and satisfied. Thank you Genevieve for your attention. You made us feel at home. We will be back.
Our server was fantastic. She really took care of us and made us feel special. The food was FANTASTIC!!!!!!
Waitress Not friendly. It was my Birthday Party. Service Time good. Food too. But there are enough good Restaurants. Next Time another one.
Excellent experience. Service is local and superb. Food is good to very good. Well done interior. Keep it up.
Our favorite local steakhouse we regularly visit.
So fun and the food was great!
The quality of meat was exceptional. The split pea soup was the best we ever tasted. All the food was fresh, the portions were generous and the service was perfect. There is a large parking lot in the back of the restaurant. It is a comfortable place to indulge in a fabulous meal. Thank you to all the people who made our evening special.
Second time we’ve been to this location and both times have come away amazed. Great service, great ambiance, great food. On our list as a must visit any time we’re in Buellton.
The service was impeccable, food and wine was also great. We will be back.
Although we don't get to the Hitching Post often enough it was well worth the drive from Ventura.
The staff is great and the waitress was very helpful in our decisions! Always added to the experience is to watch your order being cooked on the barbeque by the most experienced chef's. The artichoke is to die for as well as the filet mignon cooked to perfection! Don't leave without the magic stuff!
My favorite restaurant. Food is not a value but in this case you get what you pay for. Wines choices made by the owner are great. Tell your server if you are on a date you want slow dinner and they don't mind. Gone 2 times and while not everything on the menu is a home run every thing is good. Highly recommend the top sirloin. Will make a point of stopping here for dinner if anywhere near this area.
We have been to this location 5 times in the past, service has been 2-3 stars. Last night Robin helped the HitchingPost set themselves apart. She was friendly, attentive, helpful and made our dining experience an A+ occasion.
our server was very friendly and competent. the steaks were excellent; very tender and flavorful. we would come back again.
The food was average (or below), but the prices were high. We didn't eat a single thing we loved. We went for Valentine's day, but it was a disappointment. We expected a fine dining experience, but it was nothing like that. We won't be going back.
Made a valentines reservation at 6:50 for a time of 7:15. It wasn't there before so there must have been a cancellation. We live in Buellton, so we just drove over. We have been there a number of times and always enjoy it. The shrimp appetizer is very good. The baked potato is always cooked perfectly. I also always enjoy the filet mignon.
Wonderful value and atmosphere.
Business meeting. Great service. Great food!

Fave restaurant in California.
