Old San Marcos Pass stagecoach stop lassos a little bit of the Wild West--and cooks up classic American eats. – In Short
Originally constructed in the 1860s, this historical marker was originally a way station for mountain-crossing travelers; shortly thereafter, it became a restaurant--and little has changed since. A mix of woodsy log cabin chic, deer head decor and four wood burning fireplaces, the space is still a welcome respite to folks on the road, be it wine aficionados heading home to points south, Santa Barbara locals or adventurous couples and families. Traditional weekend breakfasts are legendary; otherwise, it's all about burgers, chicken and steak.

Fine historical eatery – The authentic stagecoach stop ambiance of Cold Springs Tavern makes this a worthwhile stop. Our dinner for four was $132 before the tip. The food results were mixed and the service can be slow when it is crowded. The ribs were excellent but the elk special was tough. It may be a better choice for lunch or early dinner. The trip from Santa Barbara is quite an adventure and best travelled during daylight hours for those unfamiliar with the area.

Cold Spring Rocks – What can I say...the tri-tip sandwich is the best thing out there. The guy cooking up those things is top notch. The only detractor is the drunk bartender, I think his name is Matt.
