What a find! We were travelling trough Big Sur and trying to find a place to eat. Selections are somewhat limited, so as soon as we saw something we pulled off to stop. There was a restaurant right near the road that was packed, and we thought we would be here all day. We drove into the yard a bit... More

My wife and I ate here while driving the PCH as there is little options. Seating is limited, a little sticky but the food was great. We both enjoyed our burgers cooked to order and fries. They have numerous beers on tap as well. No signal service so you have to use the wifi.

Stopped here after a long hot hike....friendly bartender, great beer selection and tasty pub grub. We also enjoyed the Irish rock music playing...it felt like an authentic Irish pub.

Great choices for ales and beers and pub grub. I f you want a coors light or cocktails go somewhere else, not allowed. Bartenders are knowledgeable about the brews and offer samples as many are not well known. Had a philly steak sandwich that was fantastic.

After a long drive going north up the PCH my family of four needed to find a place to eat. We were lucky to find the Maiden Pub. The staff was friendly and the food was great. After an almost two week road trip traveling from San Diego to San Francisco the Maiden Pub was one of our dinning highlights.

Delicious food. Delicious beer. Laidback but friendly service. Sit back, grab a pint, and enjoy yourself! (Hangover Helper sandwich is amazing - and the fried artichokes are insane!)

My family hiked in nearby Pfeifer State Park and stopped to buy t shirts next door. We decided to eat and I'm glad we did. Burgers were terrific, large beer list. Friendly staff. Nothing else needs said.

I was hesitant to write this review only because I didn't want the crowds to take over but this place has great food and a friendly atmosphere. Very casual pub we have been stopping by for a good relaxing lunch for many years on our trips up, and found ourselves lingering longer each time trying out the different brews. The... More
