The waitress was phenomenal! Very cordial and met our needs. However the restroom being out of order was an issue. Hopefully its fixed soon. I know you can use the one upstairs, but some prefer not to climb them.

Being the most historic location in Paso Robles, and being right in the middle of one of the best wine regions on the planet, you would think they would know better then to serve wine that has been opened for 4 days. Two orders of wine by the glass, and both had oxidation and no acid. There is just no excuse for that. They need to do some major retraining.

Enjoyed the Steakhouse on a recent visit to Paso. We had a nice table overlooking the park and enjoyed our steaks. Service was a bit slow and my order was partially wrong, for which the server apologized - there were several special events so was quite busy with other diners on a schedule.
What was really nice was the opportunity to bring one bottle of local wine with no corkage fee, so we enjoyed one we had chosen earlier in the day during some wine tastings. That made the dinner a good value. I would return.

Bloody Mary was delish! Calamari was bland and fishy. Brussels sprouts were perfect! Rib eye was quite tasty but not the best I've ever had. Mashed potatoes were yummy. Service was excellent, but we were there early on Friday before it got crowded.

The Steakhouse is one of our favorite places. The recently remodeled interior is lovely, and the service excellent. There is no corkage fee for your first bottle of wine that you bring, and only $15 for any subsequent ones. The portions are large enough to share, so you can get top quality cuisine for an incredibly affordable price.

BEST experience yet after having Sunday brunch here 20+ times! Our server KATHY went above and beyond. We request her every time, and each brunch she brings a wonderful smile, professionalism, attention to detail (dirty plates, silverware, beverages topped off) . She may have 10 other tables as she helps us, but you would never know. She takes time to really know her customers and their preferences. I truly cannot say enough. I hope this review will help to get her recognized by the company. Thank you Kathy!

Luis, the Chef (?) was handling the station with the Prime Rib, Ham, Lamb and omelettes. Great service. Professional and just really nice. Sydnie was Kathy's (our server) busser, I believe. She was awesome. Morgan was bussing-he is the Best! Really nice, helpful and overall great customer service. If she isn't a server yet, she needs to be and when she is, she will be awesome!

Halley was the manager during Easter brunch. I have seen her working pretty much every brunch we have been there. She checks us in without a glitch or trouble finding us on the list. Always a smooth transaction. I've never tried to visit with her because she was so busy. That restaurant runs like none I have ever seen. There is never chaos, confusion or drama with the staff and her that is visible to a customer. I'd be very surprised to know if there ever was. I made sure to thank her for such a wonderful experience yesterday and got to talk with her for a few minutes. I didn't know she was so sweet! She took a minute out of her crazy busy day to visit with me. Our talk was really fun and so nice. This added so much to my dining experience,this meant alot to me.

Thanks to all mentioned. I brought my mom to brunch after church yesterday for Easter as I had said. I live out of town, so spending time with my mom is very special to me. Our experience and the excellent customer service we received made this such a memorable day; I'm really grateful to you all! See you on Mother's Day!

We went to the Steakhouse for our 30th anniversary dinner, and it was perfect for us. We had a quiet table, excellent service (including bottle service!), and tremendous food. My steak was perfectly cooked and thoroughly enjoyable. The Steakhouse even provided a very nice anniversary gift to us after dinner. I've only been back to work a few days and I've already recommended this great place to many of my coworkers.

When you’re at a steak house order a steak. We did and both the filet and the ribeye were fantastic! They make a mean martini and the sides and dessert did not disappoint. Our server, Annie, enhanced our visit with her friendly, professional service.

We were in town for an event and decided to try the Paso Robles Inn Steakhouse for dinner one night. As we were looking at the steaks, we noticed they were Choice. I was surprised by this as I can get a Choice steak at Albertsons or Kroger. But I don’t shop for beef at those grocery stores. (My preference is sustainable, pasture-raised, grass-fed beef but if I have to buy a steak at the grocery, I won’t buy lower than Prime.) Nonetheless I ordered a NY Strip and it was cooked perfectly bass don my request. It was fine but the quality just wasn’t there (because...well, Choice). The veggies were very good and the service was fantastic. I don’t expect to pay over $100 (2 people) for Choice grade beef at a restaurant.

Chocolate Molten Cake with vanilla ice cream is a must to order and to share.

The best part of the food was the brussselsprouts appetizer. Amazing.

Some food came out cold. Not even lukewarm. We sent back to get reheated. One dish was still cold.

The service was horrible. We sat down and took 20 minutes to get someone to take our order for dinner. Then took forty minutes from ordering for food to come out. We had a reservation. We were told a party of 18 came to the restaurant and got turned away so they went to the bar and ordered their food. Once they sat in the bar, they should’ve been told that there were reservations ahead of them that would be taken care of first and their food would come out in bits and pieces. Poorly ran.
We will not return.

We had the Brussels Sprouts (appetizer) which was outstanding! The rack of ribs was another story. They were the worst ribs as far as taste we have ever had. The ribs were dry and the bbq sauce they used was very "tomato," texture and taste. We would not recommend the ribs.

The service was excellent in both the lounge and restaurant. It was nice to be able to talk without speaking loudly. Our server was nice and the restaurant staff are all attentive. Our bartender provided friendly service. The butter lettuce salad has a variety of tastes and was quite enjoyable. The 14oz ribeye was too chewy and seemed more like a breakfast steak you’d get with eggs for $16.99. Took it home to have the next morning. We were excited about the Grand Marnier bread pudding. So sad. Sent the waiter to ask the chief where the Grand Marnier was and was told it was in between the layers. No matter how hard we tried this was just plain warm bread pudding with ice cream. The manager was nice by adjusting our bill and that is why I rated everything as good except for the steak. Don’t think we will return but certainly would not be for a steak.
