We had dinner and the food was good, a little pricey ($27 for chicken?) but the service was slow. They only had two servers for the entire dining room so that was probably why. I'm not sure if that's typical or what, but they could've used one more person.

Rustic dining with outdoor seating in a forest setting. Good breakfast and lunches. The last time we were there was with our Porsche club, we were early but they accommodated us quickly and the food was good and the portions large.

We have dined here several times. The beautiful patio setting by the creek is one of the reasons we enjoy dining here. They also have inside seating. We generally go for lunch and have one of their sandwiches. On our recent trip, we just stopped here on our beautiful Big Sur drive and had an ice cream. We enjoyed it... More

An amazing patio with a dark blue sky, majestic redwoods, perfect weather, my beautiful family. What more could I want! Oh, and the beer was delicious too! :) We had been driving on the amazing highway one all day and were getting pretty hungry. We couldn't believe our luck when we discovered this gem tucked away in the redwoods! The... More

Hidden within Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, this restaurant will rival most of the other well know restaurants in the Big Sur area. Just a short drive within the State Park, the restaurant is located in the same building as the lodge check-in. The building also contains a small general store, a specialty coffee bar, and scooped ice cream service.... More

We were staying at the lodge for one night so had dinner and breakfast here. The food was all good. Service at dinner was quite poor - we had to remind them twice that we had ordered more drinks, and our food took quite a long time to arrive. No problem at breakfast though. Overall though worth eating here if... More

so you spent all day in the redwoods, took a shower and don't want to be at your campsite… go to the lodge and have dinner! multiple places to hang out within the lodge. It's pretty enough for weddings. There are walks near by. Good for all ages and physiclal abilities. Out the doors are some redwoods to sit in.

Lovely dining room. Nice, attentive staff. Delicious breakfast & coffee with great attention to detail as you would find in a 5 star resort. Very pleasantly surprised and highly recommended! (Dinner was equally well executed with some interesting local wine selections)

Great service, friendly staff, nice atmosphere, sit on the deck if you can. The potato skins are yum. I had an omelet the next morning as well, delicious!

Some friends were camping nearby and was surprised at the fancy comforts so close to the trailhead. Use the facilities and grabbed a quick snack for lunch. Want to come back and stay in a nice place nestled so close to the gorgeous scenery.
