We were staying at an inn nearby and they recommended we come to eat at Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill. We arrived without a reservation so we had a 30 minute wait, but this was in the bar with a bottle of wine so hardly troublesome! When we were seated we were placed in a nice big booth. The food...

Food was pretty good and the location is awesome. The pesto/walnut shrimp appetizer is wonderful. However, make sure you tell the waiter you don't want all your food at once! That was a bit annoying...

Stayed at the Fogcather motel a few doors down from the Moonstone. Didn't book this place, turned up, had to wait roughly 15minutes, sat outside on a nice evening, ordered our drinks and meal. Watched the sun go down, they do supply blankets if eating outside, which were very welcoming as it got quite chilly. The food turned up, I... More

I stayed in Cambria for 4 nights and ate at the Moonstone 3 out of the 4 because it was just a walk from our hotel. All 3 nights my friend and I had the scallops, they were delicious! They had area wines which were also very good and I found the wine prices comparable to other restaurants in the... More

You don't have to order a large meal as the chowder & clam strips were listed as a starter or appetizer. We all enjoyed them & there was more than enough to fill us up.

Last week was the second time I had lunch here; the previous time was five years ago, and with the same group of childhood friends. We sat outside on the patio and had an excellent lunch. Service was good and while the restaurant was crowded when we got there we were seated quickly. It may be another five years but... More

We have been to Moonstone before and never been disappointed. The streak remains intact. The service was right on. The sandwich I had was very tasty and my wife always enjoys her fish tacos. The ocean view is picturesque and the extra appeal came from whale watching.
