We had a large party of 18. The service was great. The appetizers are really tasty. Next time we will only order appetizers because it was too much food ordering an entrée and appetizers.

Stopped for dinner 1 night and it was alright. The place was very busy and the service was good. There are not many options in the area but if you're looking for quick server and average food, then this is the place to go.

Went to eat there for dinner because it was next to hotel. Dinner service was adequate, food ok, but room was cold, food got cold quickly. Went for breakfast the next morning because the hotel we stayed at had a breakfast deal with them. Our server told us we had to prepurchase the voucher from the hotel. Alright I went... More

Decent food but a bit outdated. Convenient to local hotels. Was not a bad place to grab a bite and a drink.

Nothing to complain about at all. It's a fairly souless restaurant but we had nice pleasant service. The food was just fine and we were all happy with it. I suppose it was quite expensive for what it was but we had a 10% off voucher from the hotel - this did help and I guess it's the reason why... More

While in San Simeon, we went to this establishment for brunch. Delicious! Our son and his wife met us there with their dog and we sat on the pet-friendly patio. Good service and good food at a good price.

Loved the atmosphere here and the service was really quick. Food was fabulous and a good portion. Limited views of the beach area but this did not matter. Very atmospheric, and you can try wines here too if you want. Would certainly recommend!

Service was a little slow because the place was packed for motel breakfast crowd. At least we got our coffee topped off without having to flag down the waiter. The food was nother special. Can't think of anything else good or bad to say about this place. At least it was a notch up from the other place further south... More
