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 Our bill was wrong and later on our bank statement there were 5 bucks more withdrawn than what we had written.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.

Seems to be a popular watering hole for locals that offers food rather than a gastro pub. We were taken aback when our clam chowder came within a minute of ordering it and it was served warmish. We asked for it to be heated and it came back warmer, but not hot within another minute. My wide had steamer clams... More

We travel to Cambria often and always make sure to stop at the West Inn Bar and Grill for a drink and our usual luncheon fare, fish n chips with a side of fried potato chips. The food is consistently good and the drinks tasty. A table by the fireplace is nice. The service is always friendly and the experience... More

Decent wine. Dreadful chicken fajita tacos. Hardly any chicken and mix just presented on tacos. Tried to pick them up and they were breaking up and slimy. Horrid. Ate the chicken mix and left the rest. Chilli ok, but very ungenerous bowl. Arrived at 7.30, ordered and then told closed at 8. Outside said 9. Other customers walked in and... More

Low key neighborhood pub. Friendly bartender, excellent tacos. Great place to have a pint, and some well-priced, tasty food. Not many reasonably-priced options in the area, so highly recommended for a more chill evening, especially if travelling solo.
