Enjoy surf n’ turf in Atascdero at the Nautical Cowboy
 Tantalizing food from BBQ to seafood, prepared with care and precision
Hungry visitors to Atascadero can enjoy an excellent dinner at the perfectly named restau-
rant, Nautical Cowboy. Located inside The Carlton Hotel, excellent juicy steaks and sustainable seafood are available along with red oak fired pizzas and BBQ. A fresh raw bar is open on the weekends.
Nautical Cowboy’s dishes are prepared with care and precision. The restaurant is well known
in the area for the wonderful customer service, delicious food and attention to detail, not to
mention the tantalizing smell of the BBQ as folks drive by.
The menu features starters, soup and salad, pasta and steak house entrees such as grilled Tomahawk rib eye and King salmon and half roasted chicken to name a few.
The Carlton Hotel is centrally located within the county and is situated in the up and coming downtown district of Atascadero. Any visit to Atascadero is incom- plete without seeing the beautiful downtown area surrounding the iconic El Camino Real, which passes City Hall, built in 1918. See the many shops, pubs, beer
gardens, murals, cider
houses and boutiques
in this burgeoning artistic com- munity.
The Carlton was
originally built in the
early 1920s, with a history of hosting many different business- es over the years. The Carlton has improved significantly, fully upgraded in the 90s and 2000s, becoming the hotel we know and love today. After years of renova-
tions and restoration, the Carlton Hotel re- opened in 2005.
The family-owned
and operated Nautical Cowboy
is the creation of owner David Weyrich, who decided the hotel-run restaurant
would serve as a go-to dinner spot featuring a lounge and high- class Surf n’ Turf. The Steak and seafood offerings can be found nowhere else on the Central Coast. Share a family-style din- ner, or an intimate evening with loved ones in the elegant setting. “Guests say it feels like home when they are here,” shared assis- tant manager Annie Guerrero.
Nautical Cowboy is located inside The Carlton Hotel at 6005 El Camino Real, Atascadero. The restaurant is open daily for dinner from 5-9 p.m. and is available
for catering and private dining as well. For more information call (805) 461-5100 or visit
