About Us
Not Fast Food... Good Local Food Fast!

The Grill Hut is family owned and operated by Jason and Lori Scheer and their four children Sarah, Jordyn, Hanna and Gabe who can be seen working hard on any given day. Jason and Lori have moved the family to Morro Bay and are becoming quite active in the community. All Grill Hut dishes are family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. We pride our self on customer service and consistent quality. 

The Grill Hut was founded in 2009 by Ernie Waldo. Ernie loved to BBQ for his friends and family and on Superbowl Sunday his friends had this idea that he should open up a BBQ Restaurant and the rest is history. The first Grill Hut started in a drive thru kiosk in Bakersfield where they only served Tri Tip, Chicken, Beans and Pasta. They continued to grow so much they outgrew their kiosk and moved into their first sit down restaurant in 2012. 

Jason Scheer also had a dream of starting his own restaurant some day. Jason approached Ernie to discuss his idea of opening a Restaurant on the Central Coast. After lots of discussion and excitement they decided to bring the Grill Hut to Morro Bay.

The Grill Hut... and .... The community
Morro Bay High School, Boosters, charities, churches, community outreach, and MORE.   The Grill Hut Morro Bay takes pride in it's community.


Here at The Grill Hut, we specialize in customer service and excellent food. Starting with the finest quality of beef tri-tip and chicken combined with the secret family recipe and a family owned and operated restaurant. Our tri-tip is USDA choice grade beef marinated and seasoned with a handed down family recipe. We smoke the tri-tip and chicken breasts until the meat is moist and tender, complete mouth watering perfection. We don’t slice the tri-tip until you order so that it stays fresh just for you. 

Our sides consist of ranch style beans, angel hair pasta, and coleslaw, which are all home made fresh daily. We serve all of the sides in any combination of your choice, including a French roll, butter, BBQ sauce, and salsa. For those of you with a sweet tooth, we have chocolate cake (for the chocolate lovers out there). All of us here at The Grill Hut cherish our customers and know just how important they are to our success. 

That is why we treat our customers like they are family. We strive to be the best at what we do, that is why we are The Grill Hut. We look forward to handling all of your BBQ needs.
