FRESH, SUSTAINABLE MEATS AND SEAFOOD
SEASONAL, EVER CHANGING MENU

More than a steak house, we feature fresh and seasonal seafood, abiding by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch standards.  Sustainability in Practice. 

 

We source our menu locally, utilizing organic ingredients as much as possible.  We pickle. We Ferment. We Smoke. We Jar. We have fun with food.  Come and dine with us - or take it togo...

IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN

Situated inside of the

Historic Carlton Hotel,

The Nautical Cowboy is located within the Downtown District, SLO County's hidden gem filled with brew pubs, wine shops, art galleries and more.

 

Times Have Changed

And so have we. 

2020 has been a wild year and we, at the restaurant, had started out so optimistically.

We took a new direction with our leadership and were set to launch

a whole new culinary program - A NEW Nautical Cowboy.

Then COVID hit.  We closed and waited, just like much of the world

 

Now that we are open once again, we are excited to finally be able to introduce you to our new culinary stylings, under the leadership of Executive Chef Thomas Drahos.

Thomas has an esteemed culinary background.  But more than that, he is a good person.  He takes care of his family, of his farm, of his team at the restaurant.  Each dish is crafted with care, precision, and time.    

Nothing is simple. 

And yet, everything is. 

We hope you enjoy.
