Turn 12 Bar And Grill
Our outdoor patio is open and we are doing take-out.
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.

Great ambiance, delicious food, and our service was outstanding. It’s always on the top of my list of go-to spots as a local.
I received a $50 gift certificate from my employer, so I thought I would treat my boyfriend to an afternoon ballgame.
Then I had to add $30 more to cover +tip.
We enjoyed everything. Keep up the good food . We found you on open table. A great find.
Great service and great food!
Great portion of tasty food! Staff are friendly and helpful.
Perfect low key evening - celebrating a birthday. Service was great and food was very good. one of our favorite spots in Monterey.
The right place at the right time. It was very hospitable.
I was a little disappointed the brunch menu was limited to what the online menu has listed. Also the brunch menu online mentioned all items except for the breakfast pizza came with additional sides, this wasn't the case. other than that the food and service was great.
Good service no wait time , good food and clean service .
Ok, but expensive and unremarkable food.
Great service. The salmon with risotto was tasty. The wedge salad was a little bland.
Server was very attentive. Appetizers are enough for a meal. Even though they do not have everything on their regular menu yet there are plenty of options to choose from. Calamari is very good as well as the lamb lollipops.
Was great to get out for the first time in months. All the staff wore masks, seating was spacious. Food was excellent.
A good casual place to get good food and great drinks . Always a locals favorite
Great place to carb up, I'm going back for the pizza and fries!
Greeting was inviting. Bartender was good. The waitress needed more customer service training! She seemed like she didn’t want to be where was.
I had the soup, tomato bisque, one of my favorites that I order when an establishment has it. I told her it wasn’t good she didn’t ask any questions just took it away. Didn’t see her again until the check arrived. We were charged for it with no explanation.
The rest of the meal was exceptional.
Very nice atmosphere... clean with cool racing stuff everywhere. Good Food. Fish tacos and salads.
This is a super cute racing themed restaurant. The menu had quite a few options. We had the ahi tower and Turn 12 pizza. Both dishes were outstanding and the staff was attentive.
Fast Service and very good food
This is a good place for a quick bit or a seat at the bar to watch the game. Menu has the regular fare, burgers, salads, pizzas and ribs. We went on a Sunday night and the place was very quiet. Server was very attentive. Reasonable prices. Good cocktails.
We’re locals and love Turn 12. Great food, not your typical bar fare. Decent beer & wine list, lots of TV’s, good energy. It’s great.
Great service, it was a busy night and the staff was really kind. Thank you!
We love the food here, and the staff is great! It is our favorite place to bring out of town guests.
Great, it’s our go to restaurant when we can’t decide
This place was just okay, not sure if it is better in low season or when there aren't any big golf tournaments taking place. The food was good, great selection of drinks (especially beer), and service was fine. The other patrons is what spoiled our experience. Too loud, obnoxious, too many of them. Shame, otherwise we would come back. We also had to wait for about 15 min for our table to be ready, although we had a reservation. We were told we were put on a "waitlist". Not sure why that was necessary. The lamb chops were delicious as was the short rib burger. The PB&vanilla milkshake was also good but had melted too much by the time it got to me. I would have preferred it more ice-cream-y.
We have been to Turn 12 more than several times and it is always a treat. The racing memorabilia is a definite plus for my husband and it is a passion for the owners. The menu is always good and I try different items each time I go but my husband loves the seafood paella.
Service was excellent. I can always expect a tasty and fresh meal. I am never disappointed. Lots of choice for gluten free eaters!
Exercise food and service.
Turn 12 serves good food and has an impressive variety of craft beers. I enjoyed the Roasted Beet Salad with Grilled Chicken. Erik C. provided attentive service and helped me decide on a draft beer selection.
Our food arrived so hot! We actually need to wait a minute or two for it to cool down before we did it that never happens and restaurants anymore everything was amazing
Our server was superb. He anticipated our needs, suggested splitting salads, and kept track of wine glasses.
Poor service. We had to repeatedly flag down other servers to find ours to get water, refill on beverages, and check. We eat get monthly. This was not how it usually is.
We were there for brunch on the day of the Monterey Half Marathon. The restaurant was busy but not packed. Our table was ready at the reservation time. Service was slow - there was a significant gap between getting our drinks and being able to order lunch. Our wait person seemed to disappear for 20-30 minutes. Our lunch/brunch choices were all good.
We had family in from Canada and took them there to celebrate a birthday. They loved it and were asking to come back during their next visit.
Very cool atmosphere. Great service and great food selection. Cool location. We were here for a track event at Laguna Seca. Will go back!
Fantastic Motörhead admosphere
This bar restaurant is beautiful on the inside with motorcycles, car parts and automobilia.
The service and the food are very good and nice. Beautiful place to sit and have dinner.
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
yes I recommend We have visited your restaurant a few times. We always look forward to it.
Food was fine but nothing special. Took a while to get food eventhough restaurant was slow when we ordered.
