Satisfy your gourmet taste buds at McPhee’s Grill in Templeton
 Serving up great food along with great service
Since 1994, McPhee's Grill chef- owner, Ian McPhee and his wife June have been serving customers
in their downtown Templeton res- taurant. McPhee attributes his suc- cess in reaching this milestone to both the growth of the surrounding wine country, tourism, and the loy- alty of his local customers. McPhee recalls when the couple first opened their restaurant, there were about 20 wineries in the surrounding area; today, more than 250 dot the countryside.
The menu offers fresh seafood, wood grilled steaks, local produce and gourmet pizzas and pastas. Start with Sweet Potato Fries
