Meet our team

STP Bar-N-Grill is a family owned San Diego restaurant, which values the atmosphere and the neighboring community just as much as the dining menu. We want our guests to feel relaxed, well-fed and at home!

Executive Chef and Operations Manager, Shannon Beckwith, has over 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry.  Shannon’s career path started in Los Angeles, California studying under world renowned chef, Wolfgang Puck.  He quickly advanced in various kitchen roles and moved on to San Diego where he gained further experiences in all aspects of restaurant operations in both fine dining and “mom and pop” establishments.  Shannon studied abroad to master South American cuisine and went on to own and operate his own restaurants.

The Owner and General Manager, Tina Romano is a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native with over 30 years of experience in finance, accounting and corporate governance, primarily in San Diego’s biotechnology arena.  Tina has traveled extensively and has a passion for food, wine and craft beer.

The idea for STP originated from Shannon and Tina’s Place – a welcoming environment always open for friends and family to come together and enjoy great food, cold beer and fun times.   At STP, a San Diego Bar and grill, we proudly serve fresh, homemade products and support local San Diego businesses from food purveyors to craft breweries.

Shannon and Tina also love Harleys and muscle cars, riding cross country or cruising around town .  As such, STP is a garage restaurant focused on motorcycles and American muscle cars.  The menu selections mirror this theme with every item following the concept, down to our STP branded buns.

We look forward to seeing you in the garage!
