There is easy beach access just south of the hotel property. You'll see it where the side street dead ends.

There are not a lot of great restaurants in San Simeon, but there are really good options a few miles/minutes south in Cambria.

Robin's is a cozy option with an international menu made with fresh ingredients (nothing comes out of a can here): http://www.robinsrestaurant.com/

Sow's Ear: Consistently voted Most Romantic restaurant on the Central Coast: http://www.thesowsear.com/

Black Cat Bistro is a foodies fave (closed 2 nights out of the week):

Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill for seafood. Nothing fancy, but great ocean view dining with pretty Moonstone Beach across the street:

The Sea Chest (also on Moonstone Beach Drive, but come with cash. They don't accept credit cards): http://www.seachestrestaurant.com/

Cambria Pines Lodge has a diverse American menu. This is where you'll find that steak. I hear the food here is very good: www.cambriapineslodge.com/Restaurant.htm

I would go with The Sea Chest in Cambria for your seafood. They don't accept reservations here. The Sow's Ear Cafe in downtown Cambria has awesome steaks. I would get over to Linn's Easy As Pie Cafe also to sample some very good Ollalieberry goodies and chicken pot pies.

If you like tea, there is The Tea Cozy across the street from Linn's which is cozy and charming. Have fun! :)

thanks everyone for the information. I'm assuming the beach access is right by the oceanfront rooms on the bluff. You say easy. is it steps? can't really tell how far down the actual beach is.

Just walk over to San Simeon Street to the south of the hotel to access the beach. If memory serves me right, I think there's a sand path leading right out to the beach. No need to climb down the bluff from the hotel property.
