We had the prime rib, and it was excellent. The waiter was very attentive. The wine they gave us with our package was delicious. We took the unfinished bottle into the lounge after dinner to enjoy the entertainment.

This is one of the most unrelentingly negative reviews we have ever seen. Our service is well reviewed by most of our guests; we regret that it did not live up to our usual standards or to your expectations. We serve only the freshest meats, fish, and produce, prepared daily by our experienced cooks. Our furniture is meant to be... More

We have eaten here many times over the last 10+ years. The current management has had other priorities than customer service since about 2013. The scallop entree has gotten smaller by about half, the prime rib is now a bit tough, the salmon is overcooked (that isn't new). And instead of gracious customer service, staff throughout the hotel (except waitstaff)... More

Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate your business over the years and are sorry you did not enjoy your recent experience in our restaurant. Scallops are portioned by weight, which means there are usually four or five large scallops on each plate. Our delicious prime rib garners great reviews; anyone who happens to receive a portion that is not up... More

Great service. Great waitstaff. Great wine selection. Really good food. I like eating clean, fresh food, locally grown. That is what this restaurant offers. The menu is diverse and everyone at our table (4) were very happy with their selection. It is a bit more pricey than average but it tastes better than average so keep that in mind. They... More

This was such a nice respite from the gross hotel breakfasts we've been having on our trip. Everything was fresh, tasty, there was a nice variety, service was great, coffee good.

Sure the atmosphere and service is great. The old lodge feeling but? The food generally speaking leaves much to be desired...Try Indigo Moon for a superb dinner in town.

Ever since we housed our Wedding Party here in October, 2011 and “stumbled” onto their delightful daily Brunch, my husband and I have continued to return for this ‘best kept secret’ in Cambria! Their Brunch menu is never disappointing, the price is very reasonable, and the ambiance of their Garden Dining Patio is out of this world! This is most... More

Really enjoyed the buffet, the service, and the lodge. Nice to grab a table in the gardens if you can find one (we travelled on a crowded weekend).

To be given one bubble for good food and helpful service is just plain odd, especially since our menu prices are very competitive with other nice restaurants in Cambria. In your hotel review, you stated that you ordered 2 meals, 1 dessert, AND 2 drinks. Seems like a fair total for a full meal at a good restaurant in an... More
