Food ✓

The holidays are all about fun and games, but if there’s one thing we take seriously, it’s the food. If you’re playing host this year, but don’t have time to prepare three different feasts for your family, visit The Steakhouse at the Paso Robles Inn for one of your holiday meals! On Christmas Eve, the Steakhouse will have extended dinner hours from 4:00-9:00 PM, offering Steakhouse favorites like slow roasted Prime Rib, Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, Lobster Tail, Shrimp Scampi, and more. If brunch is more your style, the Steakhouse will offer speicals on Christmas morning like Prime Rib and Eggs, Cream Cheese Blintzes topped with Berry Compote, Country Benedict, and of course—mimosas—from 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

However, the real magic happens during the Steakhouse’s Christmas Day Buffet, happening from 11:00 AM til 7:00 PM. Chef Ryan’s hand-crafted menu includes appetizers, a salad bar, a seafood station complete with King Crab Legs and fresh Oysters, a carving station offering Prime Rib, Ham, or Turkey, all of your favorite traditional side dishes, finished off with delicious desserts like Eggnog Cheesecake and chocolate covered cream puffs. Is your mouth watering yet? Call 805-238-2660 to reserve your family’s table—reservations are highly recommended for this popular event.
