About Us

The Hitching Post Full Service Difference

Our 60 year reputation as the premier steakhouse on the Central Coast provides our clients with the piece of mind knowing the last thing they'll have to worry about on the day of their big event is the food! But another integral part of what we offer is our service. Whether your event is a formal, plated dinner for 600 or a casual, fun-loving affair for 50, our service plan will be personally created to suit your needs and desires. The Hitching Post's service oriented staff have one goal in mind: Anticipating your needs and fulfilling them!

Your Menu

You may choose one of our most popular menus or we will meet with you as often as needed to customize a menu that works for you and your guests. If you've not had the pleasure of tasting our food previously, we will gladly set up a tasting for you. Our event coordinator not only arranges for all the food preparation with our chef, she is onsite the day of the event to make sure the timing of your dinner is perfect.


Having catered on the Central Coast for over 30 years, we are familiar with many venues and vendors. We can recommend rental companies, florists, bakeries, music and photographers that we have successfully worked with in the past.

Rental Items

We can coordinate the renting of china, flatware, glassware, tables, chairs, linen, dance floors, tents, etc. Not only will we order them, on the day of event we will check items in and make sure everything that was ordered has arrived.

Bar Service

We have a full bar catering license and can provide a fully staffed bar.

Day of Event

Our staff also assists other vendors as needed, whether it's the florist, your own event coordinator, the venue staff, etc. Our coordinator stays connected with everyone onsite who is working your event so that everything runs smoothly. Cake cutting by our staff is complimentary.

Clean up

For an additional fee our staff will remain onsite until the conclusion of your event. They will take down tables and chairs, remove linens and make sure glassware is stored with other rentals.

Whatever your special, anniversary, birthday, baptism, etc...we want to serve your family and friends. Whether it is here at our restaurant or at your location, you can count on our 60 years of experience to impress your guests!

  • Having grown up on the Central Coast, I've always known Hitching Post as some of the best BBQ in the world. When we started planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to treat our guests to a true California getaway (my husband is Canadian), and that meant Santa Maria style BBQ. I looked into Hitching Post, just to see if they offered catering, and was thrilled to find they did. We went for a tasting at the restaurant and were absolutely blown away by the service. We felt like VIPs, and knew immediately we'd found our caterer. Dawn and team were so helpful in creating the perfect menu for us. They really pulled out all the stops -- right down to preparing artichokes with vegan butter for a couple vegan guests. Good food was one of our top priorities, and these guys delivered. Our guests were blown away by the food, and we loved getting to share a piece of the Central Coast with guests who traveled far and wide.
