We have been here before and we love coming here. Everything is perfect! Will be back again. Have told friends about this place. A++++
The absolute best steaks on the planet. The Rib Eye, OMG you can't even imagine and even the Halibut, devine! I can't say enough as to how awesome the food is here! From the grilled artichoke appetizer to the Hitching Post Pinot's to the Salsa, garlic bread. I could go on and on, so yummy. Going to go back soon.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time! We arrived about half hour early and they accommodated us right away. Our server, Robin was amazing. She spent time with us but was constantly on the move making sure everyone was happy with everything they ordered. She was efficient and attentive. Food was just great! We can’t wait to get back for another meal!
Used "Open Table" to reserve time, which simplified the process. Staff was friendly & helpful. Full bar options for cocktails, as well as local wine selections. The relish dish provided before the leak, brought back good memories from my youth, when most steak houses did that. Menu selections were plentiful for any desired meal, as were the portions, and food was savory and cooked perfectly. Will recommend to friends and plan to return soon....and will try something different.
Entire experience was poor despite good service. Food was mediocre at best, wine was okay, ambiance was okay. We won’t be going back
This was our first visit to Hitching Post 2. We were extremely happy with the service and our appetizer of grilled artichokes ( very yummy) and their signature filet mignon, both cooked over an oak wood flame grill! Fantastic!
Kristin was our server and she was very attentive and professional.
Will definitely come back when we are in town again!
Excellent tasting steak and shrimp and our server was extremely attentive.
Outstanding service. Delicious food. Excellent selection of wines. Elegant/casual is a fitting description.
Great food, excellent service, really nice people. Next time I’m Solvang I’ll eat ther again.
Six of us, family, enjoyed our evening at the Hitching Post. The food, service and atmosphere are great! One in our party had salmon and one swordfish; but, I recommend any of the steaks...after all, it is pretty much a steak house! A little noisy on a busy night; but, very enjoyable evening and dinners.
Best steakhouse in Santa Barbara County.
Love Hitching Post!! We go there every time we are in town!!
I don't recall our waitress's name, but she was wonderful and very attentive.
We went with a baby and she was very accommodating and helpful.
I wanted to make sure she got complimented for the great service.
We go to HP2 every year and it's always been a great experience.
We normally come up to go to the wineries during the day and look forward to eating dinner at the Hitching Post for a amazing steak and then make the trip home. Always a memorable experience
Angel and Shandra make it a great experience. Great bar and menu is very good
If pinot noir and steaks are your thing, it doesn’t come any better than this. The atmosphere is welcoming, the artichoke appetizer is outstanding and the steaks are flavorful and well prepared. Non-steak options abound if that is what you’re looking for. For wines, they specialize in Central California Pinot noirs and their wine list is extensive, earning their Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, but they do have others. Highly recommend their restaurant!
Exactly as we expected, not at all pretentious, one of the best steaks i’ve Ever enjoyed!
The artichoke appetizer is a must have! Their is nothing on the menu that I dont like.
Amazing food and service!
So much fun! Kind of a throwback but great food and service perfect! We even bought the SPICE!! Enjoyed
Old time steak house favorite that never disappoints. Best grilled artichoke with chipotle mayonnaise dipping sauce.
Been there twice . Was soo happy to fine a GOOD steak house near Solvang . .
A co worker recommend A.J.....WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY . ..
Took us a while to try another steakhouse . Too bad we waited so long.
Appetizers and sides were not good, the swordfish, duck, and filet mignon were outstanding!
Never Disappointing when we come here, awesome staff and service. Great food and wine.
This was for my wife. Took her on the Sideways tour. Stayed at the Sideways Inn. Drank at the Sideways Lounge and dinner at the Hitching Post ll. Still looking for the restaurant in Los Olivos they used for filming! Great weekend getaway. Great service and food at the Hitching Post. Make sure you make a reservation. The bar also has a wait list. Busy place!!
It's the same for then last 20 years, and that's probably the problem. Now its sorta cheesy with most of the competition offering a better experience and better food. The loud, crowded dining rooms are a growing put-off. The tourist trade keeps it going.
Genevieve was so sweet & very efficient. You could tell she was busy, but had a smile on her face & was cheerful the whole time. We appreciated the Birthday ice cream plate for my 57th!
food is always good; not fancy. we love Genevieve; she always makes the time there special
The Hitching Post II rose to fame after the movie "Sideways.: We have been there many times. The BBQ food is great/.
Ambiance was nice. We arrived 10 minutes early and was seated early. The hostess and our waitress and assistance were friendly and courteous making sure we received the best service not just us but the other guests seated around us. The food was delicious, seasoned well and we enjoyed every bite. Awesome and great place. We would definitely come there again. Thank you and God Blesx.
We have been coming to the Hitching Post for decades. I consider their Santa Maria barbecued stakes to be the best in the state.
Great roadhouse food and atmosphere. I’ll be back!
Our waitress “Matilda” was great? Gave us a perfect recommendation of a local Pinot. Food was prepared perfectly and was generous. Oh did you know the movie was shot here (Sideways),
Walked out before we were served! Service was very slow, limited menu- overpriced, not a good atmosphere! Very loud! Glad we went to another restaurant for dinner!
Food was amazing and service was great... was very bummed "Burger Night" is only in the very crowded and much louder bar area. But solidly delicious... Duck, Ribs, Steak, and Artichoke all deserve mention... don't skip the wine!
Excellent ribs and rib eye steak. Great value as soup, salad and one side are encluded.
Loved the grilled artichoke and baby back ribs
One goes there for the meat and game dishes not the ambience. The steaks are fantastic.
We have eaten there many times and it was fantastic as usual.
One of my favorite places for steak!! I always had the best here. Wine list is geat
