Customer Reviews


I needed to update my review of Mason Bar with a couple wonderful visits of late. It’s really become a great choice for our lodging guests and us personally. Both the carbonara and short ribs did not disappoint!

Awesome ambience! Great for date night! Food was AMAZING! We took young kids here. Although, they were very accommodating , we won’t do that again! Definitely better for adult dining.

When I come into town I just love coming here with my family and having a delicious meal! We just love the Brussel sprouts here! Changing up the menu, now they have a brunch menu as well in the weekends.

Hand-Crafted Cocktails

Some people describe our bar as a whisky lounge because we offer more than 25 different types of bourbon and whiskey. We’re truly much more than that. We feature the largest selection of spirits on the Central Coast and pride ourselves on making a variety of the finest cocktails in the 805.

Our bartenders carefully hand-craft every cocktail, using all house-made syrups and fresh pressed juices that express the beauty and flavor of San Luis Obispo County’s local farms. We also pour 16 local wines by the glass and offer an extensive list of bottled wines. If you’re a beer lover, you can choose from 20 rotating tap handles. With beer, wine, and spirits at every price point, we can no doubt serve up the perfect drink for you.

Country-Chic Atmosphere

Mason Bar was built to capture the beauty and charm of the Village of Arroyo Grande. We constructed our dining room with refurbished wood and mason jar light sconces and chandeliers to create a unique Country-chic atmosphere.

Barrel-Aged Just for You

You may have heard about our unique barrel aged cocktails. They have certainly become a popular local favorite. Enticing pre-mixed concoctions are placed into barrels and aged to give them a truly unique taste that you must experience to fully appreciate. You can even join the Barrel Club.

When you become a member, we fill a 2-5liter oak barrel with your favorite customized cocktail and reserve it in your name for future visits. Just give us six-weeks for the barrel aging process and your barrel will be ready to enjoy.

Giving Back

We pride ourselves on supporting the community that has given so much to us. We love supporting local charities and fundraisers whenever we can.
