Where to eat Bar food in San Luis Obispo: The Best Restaurants and Bars

December 2, 2019 Jasper Kershner

Reviews on Bar food in San Luis Obispo, California, United States. Halfway between San Francisco and L.A., San Luis Obispo can be a relaxing getaway or a buzz of activity. For serenity, pack a lunch and head to one of dozens of wineries or take a drive to the beach for a leisurely swim. For a dose of history, visit the heart of the city at the beautiful Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa. Kids will love the Children’s Museum or Skate Park. Be sure to stroll along the creek downtown, where there are breweries, wine bars, restaurants and shopping for all tastes.

Cool area with a full bar. I had the Madonna Cabernet and it was very good! The bar is next to the dance floor so you are close to the music and dancing. The hand carved grape vines are so beautiful and the sitting areas are comfy.

This place was absolutely great! The lady who helped us get started was extremely personable and educated us on the establishment, including everything we needed to know in order to get drinks. The food was delicious too. It’s a very unique property and we all had an awesome time! I would definitely recommend!

Reviewed By CalinCa

From the reviews it is apparent that your mileage may differ, but when we stopped at 4pm Tuesday, service was quick and attentive. The Mango Squeeze was a delightful refreshing summer drink. No doubt the offering of craft beers is equally refreshing. Our special of the day Butternut Squash Soup was so good that we ordered seconds--so rich and so marvelously seasoned. I had a Mac n Cheese with green jalapeños. We confused the desert board special for three selections but, WOW, what a delicious combination, a sweet bread, local strawberry jam, and gelato!!The bar is a feast for the eye. Given the large footprint and Brew's longevity, it is apparent that a great number of drinkers and diners are quite pleased to stop here!

Quaint Bar with a little bit of a cowboy theme or old San Luis Obispo. The Bartender was great. Reason large menu. Lots of beer choices. The Western Burger was really good. Fish Tacos just OK. We would go back when in town and try Mac and Cheese.I'm happy you enjoyed the burger, Brian! We're famous for our mac and cheese, so you'll definitely have to give it a try next time. It's fantastic you enjoyed your visit, and we look forward to seeing you next time you're in the area! Take care,Myriam, Mama Sheep

F.McLintocks Saloon

Reviewed By northernneckinn

What attracted me to McLintocks SLO Restaurant was the Farmers Market show outside their front door every Thursday evening. The line was way down the street 20 minutes before opening bell! All these folks can’t be wrong! Well they are partly right! We sat on the back terrace that overlooks a poor excuse for a river and ordered ribs and a half smoked chicken.... well it turns out that both were unavailable and out of inventory! So we ordered baby back ribs at their suggestion and chicken breast. The baby ribs felt like they had been warmed up for the occasion and the chicken breast was dry. Fries, camp beans, onion rings and cole slaw were just great. Dinner for two around $50 including small beers. Returning to the sizzle on the street I was impressed with the wood fire, the grills, the teamwork, the efficient feeding of hundreds, the reasonable prices, the smoke and the ambiance but I realized that quality bbq cooking was not top priority. Pre-prepped meats grilled over large fires with chances of significant cooking variations did not affect the enthusiasm of the ravenous crowd. If you really want great bbq check your choices and reviews carefully! One if my passions is visiting award winning bbq joints from east to west coast, mostly Texas, Kentucky and anywhere I can find them!

Tahoe Joe's

Reviewed By lesj835

My oldest daughter, a local, has had good experiences here & suggested it. My wife & I arrived just before 5 midweek. We requested a table for 3, possibly 4. The nice young hostess stated she would go see where to put us. (Shouldn’t she know this already?) That took way too long in a restaurant that had many, many vacant tables. When finally seated, it took way too long for a server to approach us. I caught the eye of one young lady who seemed to understand, but nothing happened. When our waitress finally appeared, there were 2. It was explained that one was a trainee. From that point on, service was outstanding. I’m not a steak guy. Or a fish guy. That pretty well sums up the menu. I ordered crab cakes, which I occasionally order only as an appetizer. These were some of the better I’ve had on this coast. Tahoe Joe’s is apparently viewed as a steak house. The women had ribeye. My wife recently had one of the best ever (at twice the price) at a true steak house in Chico. She equated Tahoe Joe’s to more of a Sizzler entree.

Eureka!

Reviewed By MrGaucho1987

Don’t let the friendly hipster waitstaff put you off, Eureka offers quality fare and college town prices. We’re very glad we dined there. The room is large, comfortable and well decorated. I’d call it a casual date spot perfect for meeting friends. It’s not fancy. The service was good. We wanted for nothing. No issue. As for the food, it was good all around. The vegetarian in our party enjoyed the cauliflower bites, and we all like the house-specialty mac and cheese balls. My chicken sandwich was a good portion and flavorful. I heard no complaints about the salads either. All told, this is a popular casual food restaurant for a reason...good food at good prices. We will return.
