Stopped here one night after a day of wine tasting and didn't feel like having a big dinner. Pizza was good. Had the "cracker" style crust. They have a few local wines.

It was delicious - pizza and a salad. Service was great too. We were there early afternoon, so plenty of room, no wait. I would definitely return.

We live in Templeton, CA part of the year & love going here for their pizza & beer & wine. They have take-out & eat-in, a good wine & beer selection, and it is right on Main St. in Templeton. Great area, too.

We've been here a few times, a friend of ours told us about this place when we moved to the area so we come here when were itching for some good pizza. We got a medium pepperoni and black olive pizza which is more than enough for two adults. And they have a nice selection of beer and wine to... More

I went to Griff's on the recommendation of friends who live in Templeton. They were very fond of both the pasta dishes and the pizza; and they raved about the garlic bread. Griff's is a small, clean restaurant where you place your order at a counter and the food is delivered to your table. Service is prompt, especially considering that... More

Nothing fancy here, but very good value. Lots of locals on a busy Saturday night. The salads were enormous, fresh, inventive and well prepared. The pizza was superb - the crust wasn't too thin or thick and stayed crisp despite a generous helping of cheese. Young waitstaff was friendly and helpful. Small, but smart, wine and beer selection.

We enjoyed a casual dinner here with my husband and son on a recent trip to Templeton. We had a Cesar Salad and a Tuscan pizza. Both were quite good. Not mind blowing, but solid 4 stars. Would come again.

We love Griffs for the pizza, but their salads are great too. The side salads are generous, my favorite is the spinach salad with warm bacon dressing on the side. My husband loves the side Cesear salad and we split a medium pizza. Plenty to take home. End Post Cab is great too, since I am not a beer drinker.... More

Near the vineyards and fine for bite in a quaint little pizza joint. Heads up though, if don't like really salty avoid the thin crust pie with prosciutto - they are generous with it but so thirsty later.
