This is a convenient location in Julian to have a nice casual lunch. The menu has a variety of items, including salads, soups, seafood, meats and more. You can dine inside and old house, or sit outside on their patio.....either is very enjoyable.

The Grill is located in a cute house on outdoor eating at the west end of town. Street parking. Menu offered the usual lunch fare. Tuna melt was serviced on tasty rye bread. Price are reasonable. Service was satisfactory until the check. Rebecca forgot us.

I had baked brie that tasted more like it was microwaved. Partner had farmed raised salmon :( accompanied with a mixed salad which was decent. The atmosphere is great and feels real Julian with that back to real life kind of feeling. Small town coziness.

Wonderful. Famous for their Apple Pies. We had a excellent main meal followed by their apple pie. Staff friendly, helpful and attentive but not standing over the diners.
