We had dinner here and would highly recommend the Tri-Tip. The establishment was clean and in good working order. We love the western decorations.

Tanner Jacks specializes in BBQ items and they have an extensive menu. They are famous for their tri-tip and it is quite delicious. They have an extensive menu, however, and everything they serve is delicious. We had a large group of 11 and they served us quickly and efficiently and did separate checks for us as well. They got our... More

My husband and I were visiting the area and Tanner Jack's was recommended as a place to get a meal prior to traveling back home. We arrived to find a small line forming and were told by some regulars in line that we were in for a treat as Chef Michael and his wife Kelly would be serving up a... More

Hubby and I have been enjoying this sweet spot atop the hill looking out over the Pismo Beach dunes for quite some time, but it had been a while since we'd been back. They still have their great food items, but we were disappointed to no longer see their ultra-delicious jalapeno corn chowder, their one-of-a-kind BBQ butter with homemade rolls,... More

Choose a booth on the right as you walk in for private dining, small bar area, can be noisy, specials fairly reasonable.

Our first time to this restaurant on 8-12-16. Atmosphere was a bit noisy because of high ceilings and the bar being close to our booth. I liked the high walls around the booth-seating, it gave a feeling of privacy. They brought us these little rolls with our dinner that were delish. The whipped butter that came with the rolls was...

I've been coming to Tanner Jacks for at least 8 years and their food quality is superb. I've been to breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner so I know their menu very well. It's our favorite place to come with friends because of its quiet and private booths. They let you linger after you're done eating until you're ready to leave.... More

Great original takes on some classic dishes and the jalapeño poppers wrapped in bacon dipped in the raspberry sauce are excellent.

A charming restaurant! But the food was of poor quality, the ribs are tough, the chicken is dry and chewy, salad dressing average, fries Greasy. The exception is their tri-tip which is excellent. I just don't think I could put together a good meal with only an entree. So, I will pass on this restaurant.
