Surprising Dinner Menu

We were very surprised with the selections on the menu. There was so many things we wanted to try. I loved the cheese plate.

Driving north from Cambria, Ragged Point was very crowded, so we kept going for another half hour and stopped for a late lunch. Gourmet sandwiches, friendly staff, and a great view!

Go for the famous fish and chips. Its a huge dish, you might want to share with your friend, but it is delicious. Friendly staff makes you feel at home, but with a great view from the ocean.

We stayed one night in one of the rooms. The sun set, and really didnt want to continue our drive along the coast in the dark, so we stopped. We were able to catch a fabulous dinner (five star flavor)(we shared a dinner and got alot of food for two) The people working there were just wonderful. They even sold... More

Stopped for a late lunch after being stuck in traffic for construction. Shared the fish & chips, plenty for 2. Pricey, but there's nothing else for miles! Gorgeous views of Big Sur, good food, great service. We heeded the advice of our waitress and drove up to the hermitage (she mentioned truffles). A beautiful view, crazy winding drive. All in...

While staying at Lucia Lodge there are not many options unless you want to venture out a fair bit and once you’re here you want to enjoy the place as much as possible. The restaurant was a bit pricey and has a fairly limited menu, but with great views and a clean and fresh stylish seating area, we thought it... More

We stop there but decided to move on as the staff reception is pretty poor. We will not go back there in a hurry for sure.

On our road trip down the coast we got hungry and imagined eating good fish outdoors overlooking the ocean on a cliff and maybe spotting some wildlife. Thankfully, we stopped here and got all we were looking for. At first glance, the lodge/restaurant looks rather rustic and didn't know what to expect but we sneaked a peek at the view... More

We stopped at the Lucia Lodge for lunch en route towards San Francisco. It is not a large restuarant, rather a small place with an area to eat both inside and outside. The outside balcony allows for sensational views to the ocean and alone make it worthwhile to stop. But it also offers more than just great views - the... More

Lunch at Lucia Lodge was one of the highlights of our drive up Route 1. Everything was pleasing: the service, the food, and especially the fantastic view of the coast and the sea. I'll never forget it.
