Good food, poor service

This restaurant is located near the state camp ground. The food is good, but the service was lousy. We had breakfast and got our food before getting coffee or juice.

We stayed at the Lodge for one night and had dinner here. Wine is a bit expensive and you would do well to pay the $10 corkage if you like wine with dinner. I had a great burger and my husband had chicken which he enjoyed. Service was very good.

Wasn't very pleased with the Lodge accommodations, but the restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Nice dinner and even better breakfast. For dinner we had the roasted garlic appetizer, which we enjoyed, the soup of the day, which tasted home-made, and a salad which included a variety of local organic vegetables. Breakfast was fluffy pancakes for my daughter and the simple... More

There were more servers than diners, but the service was slow. The food was pretty good. Better than I had hoped. Cost about half again as much is it would have outside of the park. I ordered the roast chicken, and it was a chicken quarter, not a half. Tasted good, but why scrimp? The pen a pasta was pretty... More

This is a very pretty restaurant and that is all I know about it. My family of 4 waited for 45 minutes to be served breakfast. We finally cancelled our order and left. The restaurant was not even particularly busy. We had to go because it was time to check out. Very disappointing.

After hiking in Pfeiffer State Park we stopped for dinner in the Big Sur Lodge Restaurant and enjoyed a delicious meal on the patio. Not an extensive menu but our food was tasty. The local beer was some of the best I had any where in the Big Sur. I was disappointed it was not sold in the store that... More

Sometimes I don't remember to write reviews from vacation, but I remembered how excellent my burger was from this restaurant, and wanted to make a review. We had hiked around the redwoods (trail starts at the restaurant entrance!), and enjoyed the scenery and area. We worked up an appetite and were not disappointed by our meals, the service was fine...

I timed my arrival about 2:30 to miss the lunch rush. Outdoor seating among the trees was great. Not cheap but huge portions. Many places along the highway are extremely crowded but we found this blissfully relaxing. Service was fast and friendly. After lunch an easy walk through the trees was an added bonus.

The food was OK, the location was very nice, but the service was by far the worst we've ever experienced. It was slow, the waitress showed no interest in her guests, never checked to see whether the food was OK, and simply dropped off the bill without comment while we were still eating.
