Turn 12 Bar And Grill
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.
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 a special dinner and this food was top notch. My family loved it and so did I! Thank you for amazing service and amazing food.
Great real food! The southern fried chicken was amazing and the honey sauce was perfect on top! Service could not have been better. 5 Star!
Cool atmosphere and decor, great bar area as well as dining area. Food and service both very good.
The atmosphere was fun, service was excellent & the food was very good! We had a party of eight for dinner and we all really enjoyed ourselves.
Tasty food, reasonable prices, awesome drinks, great customer service, and relaxing vibes..
We had 6 in our party and all 6 raved about the food! The pizza, salmon, and pasta were excellent and reasonably priced. The service was excellent and our server was very accommodating. We'll be back!
The food was amazing. We had the bison burger, Mac and cheese, the fries had a lot of truffle flavor I loved it my husband didn’t. The flat bread turn 12 was yummy. And of course my fav corn chowder with lobster. I should of got a bowl
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.
great food for the price. They can accommodate different diets as well
Great relaxed atmosphere, welcoming and excellent food.
They were very attentive to our reservation, and saved us the perfect table as we requested. The burgers were delicious, and we came back the next day to enjoy them again.
The waiter was extremely professional even with difficult customers. Good food, good service.
Excellent burger and pizza, loved the atmosphere. Whatever atmosphere you like depending on where you sit in the wrap around.
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.
Our server was amazing in helping my husband who has a food allergy find something to eat and enjoy!! Definitely going back
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.
Stopped in for HH. Great service and the food was good. Tried the three different kinds of sliders, chile verde, lamb lollipops + drinks.
All very good
I ordered the Bison hamburger. The hamburger was delicious and soft. On the contrast, the fries were ok and dry.
Service was great but the food is average at best. Good place to watch football.
Always good food. However, they were understaffed for a very BUSY Saturday night.Server was quite professional :attentive even though she had a lot of tables to cover.Kudos!!!,
Fun restaurant/sports bar. It has a great theme and solid bar food.
First time I've tried this place. Best feature is the back dining room where you can actually hear each other in a conversation while watching a live sportscast on a large screen. Food was fine, service very good, prices reasonable for Monterey.
Great food, great service. Will go there again. I had the havarti burger and it was fantastic.
We were visiting the area, and I like to find local restaurants. Based on reviews, this sounded interesting, and wouldn't break the bank.
First, they were very nice when I called to change the reservation time. When I made it upon landing at the airport, I had calculated the time change backwards, but they were able to accommodate us. However, we were the first diners in the section of the restaurant they seated us in, although there were tables set up for a large group which arrived midway through our meal. I think that is why it took a little while for the waitstaff to come back to us. However, once she did get there service was great.
I had the Paloma and it was a very fine cocktail. The mac and cheese appetizer was very good.
I had the Honey Truffle Chicken. When the waitress described it, she said that there would be extra glaze, almost like gravy for the mashed potatoes. I didn't get that, but the meal was good. Hubby had Turn 12 burger and enjoyed it. Son had salmon, which he liked, but he didn't care for the risotto. I had a taste and liked it. Daughter had kids cheeseburger (2 sliders) which she liked.
Atmosphere is great. I did not walk around a lot to look at the pictures, but husband and son did, as they really like cars and bikes. There was a little stage in our area which had a big screen playing a ballgame.
The area we were in started out quiet, but it got noisier as the night went on.
Good food, service, value and good location in downtown Monterey
Food and services were excellent - We enjoyed watching the Thursday night football too
Great burger. I recommend the Corkscrew burger, it comes with truffle fries.
I recommend the pizzas
Don’t judge a book by its cover. The motorcycles and 60’s rock music made me think one way about the restaurant but the menu and food was completely something else. Plentiful options. Quality food. Highly recommend.
Service was questionable, forgot to bring our salads, but the food was good and they did comp the salads so I can’t really complain too much. Liked the atmosphere
Great happy hour. Try the fried pickles - you won’t regret it. We had excellent service from our waitress Calee, who was welcoming, friendly, and attentive.
When it gets crowded the service slows down a bit, not a complaint. There always seems to be a fly around. Food was EXCELLENT! Prices on average for the area, still felt like a steal based on quality of food.
Enjoyed my pork chop. Well cook d to my liking.
Really good food and fast, polite service. We had good space around the table which was welcome. I'm so used to tight spacing I didn't realize how welcome this would be. It may be otherwise on nights with live music.
Everyone enjoyed their entrees. The lobster corn chowder was delicious and the cheesecake was just the right size for a dessert. The ribs were sauced perfectly - no extra needed and tasted great with the buttered bread.
Friendly Place to eat. The food is delicious and reasonably. The servers are terrific. We would recommend Turn 12 for everyone
