Deamer does such a great job everytime we visit. We love the Pajaro Street Grill, whether it's his dinner specials, or fabulous cocktails, this is a real gem in Salinas. It's also perfect for large groups (parties, birthdays, etc). The service is always an A+.

The dishes here are very creative and flavorful. Their weekly specials are original, creative, flavorful, and unique. Where else can you get venison, boar stew, rabbit, and other game? Highly recommended.

Pajaro Street Grill has a wonderful feeling, and great food. The open mic nights are a treasure. Call ahead and reserve if you are going to bring a large group, though, or your meal may take a while.
