Chillin' & Grillin'

In the summer of 1996 the doors of the cowboy Diner swung open in downtown Felton for the first time.

The Cowboy’s goal of the past 21 years has been to provide a menu featuring fresh creative American cuisine & cocktails with leanings forward to the spirit & enthusiasm of the “New West”. Meanwhile creating a cozy sense ambiance of family and value that allows our new and old friends to join us several times a week.

In early 2016 we packed up our wagons & smokers and moseyed down the trail about a half mile to the south, on Highway 9, out of the big city and into our great new location. Our new roadhouse greeted us like an old friend, with more space and a beautiful garden patio settled under the redwoods and oak tree. Yipeekayeah!

Serving Felton for almost 25 years, this New Cowboy Bar & Grill Upgrade is sure to sweetin' your hangin' out spot. Located a half mile South of our previous location in downtown Felton, even closer to Santa Cruz, just 10 minutes up the road, and just 1 minute south of downtown Felton. Our address is 5447 Hwy-9. We're sure you'll settle into the new Cowboy home as your favorite in San Lorenzo Valley. 

Drop in for a full meal including our tasty dessert menu, or hang out at the bar and try one of our delicious specialty drinks. Kick up your boots and relax.

Once you've tasted the great food and friendly atmosphere, we know you'll be ridin' back our way soon. So ride on up on your horse, or use alternative horsepower to get down for a tasty meal in the scenic mountains of San Lorenzo Valley.

"The menu was packed with Cowboy comfort food, which meant that everything sounded good. I had a hard time deciding what to order..."

- Ann Parker, Sentinel restaurant reviewer

For the past two decades, a quirky little restaurant called Cowboy Diner has been rustling up solidly good grub in the center of Felton. Now that chuck wagon has rolled its way to a new location — about a half-mile south — and a new name, Cowboy Bar & Grill.

Laurie and I arrived for an early weekday dinner and found the parking lot almost full. Cowboy Bar & Grill has taken over the former site of Oak Tree Ristorante and the move seems to be working well. A chilly wind was blowing, so no one was sitting out on the beautiful patio. But inside the place was jumping.

Ambiance: Down-home and family-friendly with a kick of cowboy kitsch; beautiful outdoor patio

Cost: Reasonable, entrées $12-$32
