Not far from the Courthouse in beautiful Castle Rock stands the Augustine Grill, a warm Victorian home built in the early 1900s. Owners, Mike and Anna welcome their guests into the restaurant as one would be welcomed into their home. The menu reflects a skilled balance of traditional dishes blended with the chef's special experience; an American flavor with an eclectic selection of sauces.
Inside the walls of the beautiful building, a cellar stored with the best California wines awaits to give diners paradise with their dishes. Other wines available come from New Zealand, France, Spain, Italy, and Chili. The back patio is the perfect place for relaxing on a warm evening.
The Augustine Grill, historically known as the Leonard House was built in the early 1900s by George & Evelyn Leonard on lots purchased in 1875 for $2. In 1918 John & Anna Schweiger, who owned the original Happy Canyon Ranch just east of I-25 purchased the home. Upon John's death in 1925, his eldest daughter Rose lived here with her husband Lester Tuggle who was the 1st Street & Water Commissioner as well as Night Marshal for the town of Castle Rock. In 1964 the home was sold to the McConnells who opened the very popular "Golden Dobbin" restaurant. Ownership changed twice more and finally in 1996 became the Augustine Grill. The large main dining area was added in 2004. The Carriage House built in 1887 in the back corner of the property now houses a gift shop "Skadoodles".
