The Monterey Cookhouse is part of a new movement towards house-made, fresh and natural cuisine, slow cooked from scratch. Our “California Cuisine” ranges from casual to fine dining. You may feast on a hearty plate of homemade Raviolis, Chicken Fried Steak with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, or even a gourmet Rib Eye, wood-grilled and topped with maître d butter and served with a Twice Baked Potato and Sautéed Vegetables.

Being a Cookhouse, we also have a large emphasis on Wood Fired Cuisine and Smoked Meats. We use a Traeger Smoker, where depending on the cut, some of our meats are smoked for 10-14 hours making them melt in your mouth. We feature Smoked Game Hen, Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket, Baby Back Ribs, and on special occasions...our very popular Smoked Prime Rib Dinner. We use an oak-fired grill for our yummy ½ lb Hamburgers, delicious Steaks, and for the delectable Grilled Fish choices on our menu.

Our wood-fired pizza oven allows us to create many of your favorite Italian inspired Thin Crust Pizzas and some of our own creations. The wood smoke and high heat of this oven lends a great flavor to these items. Our grilled Oysters on the Half Shell are becoming a local legend. Pair these Oysters with a glass of wine from our very nice, and reasonably priced local wine list and you’ve really got something.

We also offer a full bar and comfortable lounge area with a two wide screen televisions for your enjoyment. We offer the best of the Local Wines, Craft & Local Beers and even local ‘Spirits’. Please join us for the “happiest” happy hour from 4:00-6:00 pm seven days a week and during Giants and A’s Baseball games with team apparel with great drink and food specials. We look forward to serving you! Stop by and see what all the locals are talking about!
