“Love this place. It is the essence of Cambria.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2009

The food is wonderful, the service and staff are exceptional and the atmosphere is perfect. A visit to Cambria would not be complete without a meal at this wonderful restaurant! I would highly recommend brunch, lunch or dinner. I have tried many selections on the menu for the past seven years I have visited Cambria and have never been disappointed. The oceanview is amazing as well.

“The Best facing out to the West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2009

We visited the Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill on March 2, 2009. We live in Morro Bay, CA, and we were getting "away" for the day. We popped into the restaurant after the lunch hour and had a taste of the lite faire menu. The food was excellent, the service from Patty , even better and we plan on telling all our friends to go on a little "stay-cation " in Cambria and to be sure to include the Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill as a part of their special getaway.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2009

My wife & I stopped by for lunch last weekend. She ordered the fish tacos and said they were very good. I had the spicy shrimp tacos. They were excellent and I would order them again. We sat out on the patio & enjoyed the view and the weather. My only complaint was there are a bunch of small birds hanging out there and one of them did it's business on my back. Ugh! Other then that we enjoyed our meal.

“LOVE Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2009

During a recent trip, we walked to Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill every night for dinner outside, on the deck. It faces west so there is a phenomenal view of the sun setting over the ocean, and later on, the stars are spectacular. Great seafood, loved all the sauces. Good wine list - we liked the Harmony Cellars Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our favorite waiter was Mario. He is knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and quite funny.

It was very cold while we were there, but between the blankets and the heaters, we were warm enough to linger for quite awhile and enjoy the atmosphere. I'd go back tomorrow, no matter what the weather.

“This place really hit the spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2009

My wife and I spent a weekend in Cambria and upon reading some reviews, decided to try out Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill for ourselves. We wanted to sit out on the patio but my wife was unsure. The hostess however told us they had heaters and blankets as well. Overall the food was great, the service was fast and friendly, but it was all outdone by the grogeous view of the ocean and the sunset.
