We traveled to Cambria off-season and Main St seemed a ghost town at 6PM. We chose this grill based on the surf boards hanging all over the place: surfers normally choose good places to eat and in fact we were pleasantly surprised. I had the steak salad, which came with a rare steak cooked to perfection sliced over a mixed... More

Traveling to this town on off season it was really dead at 7pm on a Friday night. We were not sure if the place was open. It was and it was delicious! Great service and great food.

Great bloody mary's, Big selection of beers, good fish and chips. The fish taco's were ok, but they came with cheddar cheese, a bit odd for a fish taco, they make there own taco sauce that was very good.

Nice place to watch a game and have a "bar" type meal. Small, clean restaurant with several flat screen TVs. We had hamburgers and chili and drinks. The food was tasty and the service ok. Would eat there again, especially when we wanted to watch an event on TV.

Very nice place to watch a game, but we were there during a very hot weekend, and the place is NOT air conditioned. Was definitely hotter IN the bar than outside at 5PM. Great service, and reasonably priced food and drinks kept me sitting there, sweating, anyway.

We ate at the West End and the dinner was really good. It is a small bar with about ten tables, and sports playing on the TV> The fried shrimp was enjoyable. My wife liked her fish and chips as did my children. There is not much of a children's menu so that makes the total bill a bit expensive.

Pleasant bar. Enjoyed their fresh fish n'chips. Nothing special but bartender who also served as table waiter was pleasant. For a quick lunch, this place in Cambria is enjoyable.

I live in Cambria and so have had the opportunity to visit West End Bar and Grill often. It's our "go to" place when we want fish and chips, which I feel are the best in Cambria. They have a menu of typical sandwich items like french dip, hamburgers, etc., plus salads and the typical grill foods. You won't find... More

Lots of locals eating and drinking there, which give it the stamp of approval. The problem? Understaffed. Locals are used to this, they get their own coffee re-fills and don't mind waiting for another cocktail. Why? It's the only full bar in town that serves a full menu. The food is good and the staff IS friendly, you're just going... More
