We had dinner here as part of a package included in our stay at the inn, and we really enjoyed our meals. We both had the surf and turf which was cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. Delicious! We splurged and shared the bread pudding for dessert, which was also very good!

This visit to the Cambria Pines Lodge restaurant with a large group of 8 women, was such a joy. Everyone loved their dinners, shared bites and swooned with the different tastes as lots of sharing went on. As always I ordered the scallops, my favorite here than any other restaurant, and savored the entire dinner. My friends were equally pleased... More

I ordered the scallops on the advice of our server. There were three and a half scallops on my plate (unlike the pictures posted by other diners)! I thought was a tiny serving. The scallops were served with mashed potatoes and a delicious medley of squash. But at these prices, I would have expected another couple of scallops and little... More

We went here for lunch and sat on the patio with our dog. They have very interesting alcoves with a fireplace. We had the whole patio to ourselves. The location was very peaceful. I had a hamburger and my husband had a roast beef dip sandwich. They were tasty and the pickles were good, too. Service was fantastic. Worth a... More

We love this place and always return. We got a 2 night package with dinners and bottle of wine each night. The first night I got the fillet and although delicious, was undercooked even for the medium-rare I ordered. They happily took it back and cooked it a bit more and it was great! The second night I ordered the... More

My wife and I have eaten at the restaurant over half a dozen times. I always get the prime rib and have never been dis-satisfied.

I have eaten here several times in conjunction with a stay in the hotel. The first time it was absolutely wonderful. But that was before they were selling on line group packages. Every time I return it is a little less wonderful. This last time it was horrible. My friend and I were served charcoal filets, only to be replaced... More

Thus place has it all--beautiful gardens, beautiful decor, and lovely bar with a fireplace and couches. Not to mention you can stay at the Lodge too. They have live music quite often and it's the place for locals to unwind after a long day. If you want a romantic evening with a great wine and some music (dancing too), go... More

We stayed at the Cambria Pines Lodge with friends for three days over New Year's. Our friends have a dog so we decided to have New Year's dinner outdoors in their covered dining area. The dinner was outstanding..rack of lamb, swordfish and prime rib, all delicious. The staff was very nice and attentive. The heaters weren't working, but we decided... More
