Pretty basic menu and service. Liked the location on the West end of Cambria. Tried a combination sampler and was pretty basic. The chicken wings were very small and over cooked.

The halibut was fabulous! Nice thick chunks! Delicious! The clam chowder was good too, but everyone loved the halibut!

Don't be put off by the interior (it's nothing special). The service was fast. The coconut shrimp are the best in town. Check it out.

Was told at check-in at Fogcatcher's Inn that this place has THE BEST fish and chips in town. If that's true than this town has horrible fish and chips. We were greeted promptly and received our drinks quickly. However the fish was yucky--soggy and tasteless while the french fries were good. The service was lackluster. After dropping off the food...

We had lunch here while staying in Cambria this past weekend. The steamed clams were excellent, as was the clam chowder. My husband loved their fish and chips! We definitely will go back. Nice atmosphere for adults.

One of the few restaurants open in the evening in downtown Cambria. It's very casual. The food was good. We ate here two nights and enjoyed the food both nights. I had fish both nights and the fish was excellent. My husband had the West End beef dip sandwich and the grilled beef and cheese sandwich. Both were very good.... More

Of course the oldies music playing enhanced our anniversary weekend, but the greasy BLT and greasy fish and chips did not. Nor did the over-dressed salad. The service and atmosphere gave a pleasing laid back local tone

We ate here twice during our 72 hours in cambria. Overall I think it is better than the reviews suggest. Everyone in my family loved the fries. The steak salad is excellent! Really great! Although the ambiance is rather bar-like the food is very family friendly.
