“Worst bowl of chowder, ever!”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

Title says it all and then the waitress acted like everything was just wonderful. We could even eat it and it was late and nothing else was open. Awful place

“Good restaurant across from the beach”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Great location within walking distance from most of the beach hotels. Service was fantastic, and the sea bass was great. Good value for the money.

The food and scenery were great. It's a tad overpriced though.

“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

We have had lunch and dinner at this restaurant many times over the years. The food is consistently good, the wait staff is always pleasant, and the experience of a late lunch on the terrace overlooking Moonstone Drive and the ocean is terrific. There is an indoor dining room for those chilly SLO County nights, also. A good choice when visiting Cambria and Hearst Castle.
