McPhee's Grill Restaurant Review

: The addition of a wood-fired pizza oven has further expanded the wine-friendly menu at McPhee’s, but this is still one of the better steakhouses in the area. Enjoy a hand-cut corn-fed rib-eye with jalapeño mashed potatoes, or opt for the always popular Kung Fu baby-back ribs or the macadamia-crusted catch of the day with Asian slaw. For dessert, you might briefly consider a refreshing house-made fruit sorbet, but you know you really want to go all out with the whopping hot fudge or butterscotch sundaes (the staff can usually be talked into a half-and-half order). It’s hard to go wrong with any selection from the mainly local, well-thought-out wine list; the house Cabernet is made by Chateau Margene, a premiere Paso label, and the other house wines are crafted by Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat.
