Recommended by a local but not by all of us!

Slow service due to staff shortages during our visit. Drinks orders few & far between, often with items missing. The Manager worked her socks off but with a full restaurant it meant things were hit and miss. Some food OK, some not, only average.

Stopped in for lunch. Wait staff was friendly. Four of us in the group and everyone had something different. We all enjoyed our meal. The beer on tap had local beer which was very tasty...and very cold. Would eat there again.

Don't know what I really expected but wouldn't eat here again. Food was edible but nothing that I couldn't have cooked at home myself. There wasn't any warmth from our server and she paid more attention to the old couple sitting next to us who ordered at the same time. Trying to explain that my daughter wanted her cheese burger...

Not a good vibe as soon as I walked in. No one on staff greeted us or made us feel welcome. Eventually a waitress motioned us from across the room to sit wherever we wanted. We decided to stay despite the lackluster welcome. The items on the menu sound great but in reality, the items that we ordered were not... More

Looking for good food in an almost to go atmosphere? here's the place. You order your food at a counter then wait for your number to be called and go up and get it. Great place for quick good food. My BF got a hamburger and it was good. I got a Southwestern salad which had chicken, veggies, lettuce and... More

After being on the road for a week, we just wanted a no nonsense, healthy filling meal and a glass of beer, which is what we got. We didn't have to wait for a table or make reservations.

We had a full dinner type lunch in Monterey before we drove down the coast to Cambria and were looking for someplace that was casual and served good old American café food. The West End seemed to have just what we were looking for. There was only one employee working both the bar and serving. She greeted us cheerfully, told... More

We just wanted a chill, a beer and a good meal - this place hit the spot. Friendly service. Good beer selection and plenty of food choices. We had Philly Steak Sandwich; Chilli Dog and Chicken Sandwich - all hot, tasty and filling. Good value and convivial. We did eat early so maybe it would have been rowdier later on... More

This is a little gem in Cambria! Their West End burger is sooooo yummy and the staff is super friendly and fun. They love hockey here! I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for some great local bar food (its also probably the only bar for miles, but they do it right!)

Food was average, had fish and ships, and beer. Service were ok. Lots of locals having a few too many drinks, but what else to do on a saturday in Cambria!? Our bill was wrong and later on our bank statement there were 5 bucks more withdrawn than what we had written. Will not go back.
