Turn 12 Bar and Grill waved the green flag on October 1, 2013. The modern and sporty decor surround a spectacular 50 foot custom zinc bar top with tire tread inlay. Vintage motorcycles, historic racing artwork, and multiple televisions capture your attention upon entering. With a menu that serves a little of everything, from steaks and pasta, to pizza, burgers and salads Turn 12 is a casual American Bar and Grill with something for everyone.


The name Turn 12 is related to the famous Laguna Seca Raceway that has 11 turns and meant to invite guests to visit us at the corner of Tyler and Franklin as the last turn of the day.

Usually one of our favorite places to eat at in Monterey, but this time it just was a disappointment. Service was great, but the food didn’t hit the spot.

They were a little late seating us, and we sat at a small table over on the small side of the restaurant closer to the kitchen, not the best seats. However the service was great and food was fantastic. Best risotto in town hands down! I had a great steak and my fiancé had the salmon, both were perfect and a good price. I would recommend this place to everyone and will return there again

Very good food ( I had the elk burger tasty and moist; and my wife had the turn12 sandwich- excellent).
The service was very friendly and efficient.
The ambiance was fantastic if you are a bike/auto race fan - the 1952 MotoGuzzi Falcone is spectacular... I want one.

A very good alternative to Alvarado Street restaurants when they are over crowded. Restaurant has good vibe with nice size bar area. The back dining area feels just a step up from a Denny's so ask for the front area if available. Our waitress was a lot of fun. Food was good as always.

Love this place, if you are looking for somewhere themed perfectly with a trip to Laguna Seca Raceway or just a unique spot, this is your place. Very clean, friendly staff and the food was unique and tasted great!

Great burgers, good appetizers, spaghetti sauce was a little flavorless but meatballs were good. Nights special of prime rib sliders were enjoyable! Quiet Sunday evening, server was attentive and friendly.

Another great experience at Turn 12.
We had made a reservation and the table was ready and waiting as soon as we walked in.
Cali was our waitress and she was attentive, personable, and knowledgeable in regards to the menu and the specials of the evening. Outstanding job.
The food was really good. I honestly think it's better than previous... and it was good then too!
We will return without hesitation.

Overall ambiance and decor was was good. Server was friendly but we were the only table seated in the lower section and we had to keep getting up to ask the bussers to help us with everything from water to straws to letting ther server know we were ready to order. Food is a little pricey for the quality. None of us cared for the rice that was served on the side with several of the entrees. The lobster truffle mac and cheese was oily, not creamy, definitely not worth the price.

This was my second visit to Turn 12 and was totally different from the evening before. This was Friday evening and there was a big NBA game on. It was absolutely stuffed full with people. There was a great atmosphere but it was very noisy. The table I had reserved was not available so I had to wait 20 minutes. I was given option to eat at the bar or outside but I was happy to wait for a table.

I’ve eaten here twice now and both times the food and service were good! They have a great bar with great wines, beers and cocktails. I like this place because it’s easy to get a table and the food and service are all good.

We go to Turn 12 for numerous special occasions. It is best for us to get reservations unless we go early. The food is delicious, the servers are attentive and efficient, the decor reflects the owners involvement in the automobile racing community with artwork, actual motorcycles and old steering wheels, that were given to the owner, mounted on a wall. We recommend this establishment to guests and we often take guests to Turn 12.

It was OK and convenient because I am a local. The food was tasty but extremely greasy. Our server was a nice person and that made the meal pleasant and of course it was Valentine’s Day so I enjoyed being with my husband but next time I might choose someplace else.

Service was great. Location and ambience very good. Food was poor/mediocre. Caesar salad was underdressed and came with far too much pepper. Baked macaroni and cheese was runny. Chicken parmigiana was heavily breaded.

The waitstaff in the bar really needs additional training. They routinely (we have experienced this almost every time we have been to the bar...probably 10 times) ignore patrons. It can also take an eternity to get not only acknowledged, but I’ve had to go back to the front desk and get my own menus. It is a real shame because we like the atmosphere and generally the food is good, and so we have given it many opportunities, but I think we are done.

Had a nice dinner, good food, good service, nice ambiance. More of a crowd at the bar, we sat around the corner, not too loud. Good evening.
