A very friendly neighborhood type of place. Has a full bar that is separated from the dining area. Has a large room for larger gatherings. The staff are friendly and polite. I had the prime rib. One of the best I've had.

Service was good the bar tender professional my steak was average - came out cold and whilst soft to cut just didn't have that quality and lots of fat on the outer ... The potato mash was nicer than the steak which prob says a lot

Went there last night for my birthday. Have been staying in Monterey and wanted to try something different. Google recommended the Growers Pub as an American food restaurant. It's a nice ride and salinas is a cute city that seems to have been stuck in the 60's architecturally. Anyway once we walked in this pace screamed steakhouse. We were no... More

I was in Salinas on business and had never been here before. Took a long walk downtown after a hard day, and wandered into The Pub. Immediately I knew I had made the right decision. Friendly hostess, cool and clean atmosphere, sat at the bar, quiet crowd, instant service, cold local microbrew and halibut special. All could not have been... More

Nice ambiance, feels like a London pub. The meats are good, but you have to try the toffee chocolate pudding.

I have eaten at Grower's Pub about 15 times in the past year with my partner while on business in Salinas. This place is just fantastic. We had filet mignon the last time and it was the tastiest and best cooked I ever had. Cherries Jubilee was out of this world. An excellent place for dinner. Food has always been... More

Came here after a long day of flying and found it was the perfect way to unwind. The soup of the day was the clam chowder and it was delicious. I had the chicken, which was plated with mixed veggies, mashed potatoes, and wonderful gravy. Even though I was stuffed, my colleagues and I had to try the desserts, so... More

I've passed this place scores of times, and to be honest it looks like a seriously dated dive from the outside. The is is named "Grower's Pub", the weird sign doesn't say that. Further, it is anything but a pub. Well, on the basis of a review in a local paper, I sought it out, surprised to see it was... More

I was seated right away and received excellent service. I chose the Grilled Artichoke, Slow Roasted Prime Rib, and the Salinas Valley Wedge Salad. Being new to the area I really wanted to try the Artichoke and was very pleased. My steak was cooked to order and the local vegetables were great. I topped it all off with a local... More
