Loved our lunch here! I had the grilled chicken salad and I was in Heaven! So much so that I will try to recreate the very salad at home! We have reservations for other restaurants, but I'd really love to go back and eat the same salad!

The food was amazing and the manager, Jeff, visited the table to check on things. He made us feel welcome and we can't wait to go back. Clam Chowder is the best I've ever had, along with the rest of the feast we ordered.

Located right on Moonstone Drive, it has a lovely view with a lot of outdoor seating. Although it wasn't very busy, we felt like everyone was in a rush. The crab cakes had too much crumb filler and the clam chowder was average. The 30 cents charge for a bottle of water and a plastic cup was disappointing. WE only... More

Glad you were able to enjoy the view, but I'm sorry to hear the food wasn't as impressive. Thanks for the feedback about the crab cakes, though, and I'll be sure to look into it. As for the water, Cambria is in the middle of a severe drought; therefore, we have been forced to serve water in plastic bottles. If... More

While the town of Cambria seemed to shut down at night, this restaurant was hopping. Bar was also vey busy. Waited about 30 minutes for a table on Saturday night. They were so efficient though that dinner ws over in about 40 minutes. Too quick when there is nothing else going on in the are.

We've eaten here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food is delicious and staff very accommodating. Lunch outside with a view of the ocean.

We've always had good food and service. They have recently put in new plexiglass in their patio area. The lights and umbrellas add to the atmosphere and beautiful view. Their shrimp tacos are wonderful.

We went here to eat dinner on the outdoor patio with our daughter. We enjoyed watching the sunset and the waves crashing during dinner. The food was great, especially the clam chowder bowl.
