Great food, great view, expensive

After a stay on the Big Sur coast, I had lunch at Lucia Lodge Restaurant on the way home. I had lunch on the outdoor deck on a brilliantly sunny day with great views of the coast. I had one of the best hamburgers ever. The only downside is that the food is very pricey.

So we got to Limekiln a little early. Our campsite was still being prepped, so we were advised to "go up the road a couple of miles to Lucia, and have lunch". A little pricey, but the portions are AMPLE, and the selection of menu items is diverse. I had 1/2 (yes, you read that right, 1/2) of the Black... More

We stopped at Lucia Lodge for lunch while driving through the Highway 1 and this was an excellend choice. The view was amazing, the lady was extremely friendly (has been a long time since we had such a friendly waitress in a restaurant!) and the food was decent. Not fine dining but just good burgers. We didn't have to wait... More

We dined here because we were staying at its lodge. We were pleasantly surprised at the decor. It has obviously been updated. Nice shiny wood floors and views to die for. Also had very nice light background jazz music.

On 22nd June 2015, I visited Big Sur Valley with my wife, son, daughter-in-law, daughter and my grandson who is seven and half year old. My son and his wife alternately drove the car. My grandson became a quizmaster, framed questions of his standard, and kept us busy throughout the journey. We followed the route to view Pigeon Point Lighthouse.... More

We stayed in room #10 for one night and decided to take dinner at the restaurant in the lodge. We walked to dinner (we had considered driving to Treebones for sushi, but due to the road closures, didn't want to take a chance getting stuck). Opera blared as we entered the dining room (it was Orff's Carmina Burana, which I... More

Stopped here on our drive through Big Sur. Had a delicious BLT. The view is gorgeous. Indoor or outdoor seating. You pay a little more than you might if it were located elsewhere but you get good food and the view that is priceless.
