About Us

A local family tradition since 1977!

Welcome to From Scratch Restaurant.


The restaurant is closed to comply with the Monterey Country shelter in place order and for the protection of our elderly loved ones/clients and staff. 

We are not doing to-go or take out orders currently.

We hope to open on April 8th, but that remains to be seen – it will depend on the shelter in place orders.

Please check the website as the 8th approaches and we know more.  

Please take care and know that we appreciate ALL of you!

Be Well - The Grebing Family 

From Scratch Restaurant opened in 1977, a small local dinner opened by two ladies in the newly created Barnyard Shopping Village.  Between 1977 and 1995 four other owners called From Scratch home.  In 1995, the Grebing family purchased this gem.  Chef Steve brought his vast restaurant experience and love of food to create what we have have today.  Since the purchase - three Grebing children have joined the family and on any given day you might see ALL three there working in the family business.  We were honored to be part of “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” Season 21 line-up. You can see us in action on Episode 3, "Cross Country Classics," showcasing our very own Chef Steve and featuring Chef Guy Fieri AND Chef Robert Irvine. If you missed the first airing on September 19, 2015, check us out on the Food Network channel or at www.foodnetwork.com.
