Pulled pork BBQ sandwich was massive, mashed potatoes were amazing, but so was my daughter side of a loaded baked potato. We all left with half our meals for tomorrow. Came when it was empty, so great service and relaxed vibe. Otherwise, I assume it becomes a busy bar other times. Food will bring us back.

We stopped in here for a casual family dinner while in town visiting the area and really enjoyed it. The tri-tip sandwich was amazing - I ate every last bit of it and washed it down with a couple of glasses of local Pinot Noir from Edna. The entire family enjoyed their selections and the waitress was really great.

I chilled here a few times, if a band called shambala is playing, they are trmendous, and the volume is very muted. The place itself is nice and has a good atmosphere, it is the bar to chill at when the farmers market is on, and centraly located, Hope this has been of some help for you...

My husband and I each ordered an omelette. My husband had the chili omelette, and I had the vegetarian. The omelette's were good. The country potatoes were over-cooked on my husbands's breakfast.

My son, daughter in law and 20 month old granddaughter were here from Texas. We wanted to go some where nice and kid friendly. McLintocks was a perfect choice. Food was delicious, atmosphere was great and very was awesome. Add live music to that and our night was fantastic. My granddaughter really enjoyed dancing to the music.

Visiting Cal POly in SLO 7 weekends a year we get around. McLintocks is always on the list for steaks. We like the down home atmosphere, friendly and efficient service, managers attention to detail and of course Steaks. We take a number of football players with us and this place satisfies even their expanded appetites.
