“Terrible service, ho hum food but GREAT atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Very busy evening so we needed to wait a while for a table. Table was great and view wonderful. Server was not friendly and didn't seem to want to be there. Food was just ok. We were hungry and this was walking distance to our lodging. Won't return to this place and would try something in town.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We enjoyed delicious food - the rack of lamb medium rare- perfect. I am not a big fan of all the sauces and always forget to ask for them on the side - my fault. Good wines, good service staff friendly and interested in their job. I would go back again if in the area

“Nice restaurant on Moonstone Drive”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Great lunch when visited in June, this time after full day of tours at Hearst Castle, found it not opening till 5pm, and we were starving, so went to a great Grill and sports bar near Shell Station in Cambria, just down the road.

“Excellent seafood with an outdoor patio”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

No reservations, but the outdoor patio with a view of Moonstone Beach is a perfect place to watch the setting sun (which is a little offstage in the summer). Grilled fish and a nice selection of wines are what attracted us.

“Great View and Great Food”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Found this spot while sight seeing on the Coast. We all had a great lunch. Burgers were good, my chicken tacos were great. The day was a stellar one and the view was amazing. We saw whales feeding and watched them during our entire lunch. Across the street was a great walk all along the coast line. Great Place give it a try!
