This place was OK. But it was convenient. Not bad but not amazing. Service was a bit slow. It's close to Hearst Castle which is why we opted for this restaurant. Will I come back here? Maybe, depends how hungry I am. It's got great views though if you want to sit outside! But it was too cold for that.... More

Hostess a bit snippy but they were very busy. They don't open until 5:00 which is a shame since the sunset this time of year is 4:45 ish. I ate light with the French Onion soup and Champagne which was nice.

The service here was incredibly slow and inattentive. I did, however, see other servers that seemed to be more on the ball, so maybe we were just with someone who had a lackluster sense of urgency. The food was good, though we would've liked a salad or some type of veggie to come with our steak and potatoes (that could... More

My wife and I shared a pork chop dinner and salad. The pork chops were some of the best I have ever had. Our salad was packed with nuts and other tasty goodies. The service, for a busy night, was good. The manager came by to solicit our thoughts so I replied, "I wish we had time to come to... More

Loved the variety of meals and appetizers. Especially enjoyed sitting outdoors. Food was excellent! Prices high as would be expected considering the location across from the ocean. But well worth it!

Service was excellent but food was ok. Wife had the French onion soup and was a tad to salty. I had the clam chowder which did not taste fresh made. The best hot sause in the world Pico Paca did wonders to it. My wife also had the clams which was good and she could have had more. The shrimp... More

Had another great lunch. The gorgonzola salad ranks on the top of the list for us. Also had the calamari frita to start and again, one of the best we have ever had. The view of the Pacific Ocean never grows old.

We stumbled onto this place and are glad we did. We had prompt service and great food. Pricing is a bit higher that moderate but the atmosphere and outdoor seating was great. Located along Moonstone Beach and the road, beach is on the other side of the road, within walking distance from the numerous motels along this stretch. Moonstone is... More
