We've eaten at the Cool Hand Luke's in Paso Robles many times, beginning when they first opened. It got to the point where their food was inedible. The steaks were tough, the employees were rude, etc. We drove all over Paso Robles last night to...More

If you want a great prime rib, very friendly staff, low-key atmosphere and enjoyable drinks, this is your place. A nice find and reasonably priced.

Great meal and atmosphere for catching up with family and friends. I ordered the Rib Eye steak and it was prepared to perfection. It was so tender it was like cutting butter. Everyone in our group had a great meal and pleasant time.
