My grandson and I enjoyed the fish & chips and clam chowder. Delicious! Staff was friendly and atmosphere "quaint." A good menu with decent prices. We checked out a couple of other restaurants, and walked right back to Old Stone Station. So glad we did!

Good food. However the place is small (about 8 to 10 tables) and they have a limited menu. Service could have been a little faster.

We were told they have the best chowder in Cambria, and it was definitely one of the best I've had. It's a cute place too.

I had a casual wedding rehearsal dinner here on Labor Day weekend and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. If you take a seat on the patio, just double check that the heaters are working (CA's Central coast is colder than you might think in the evening)! The seafood and steak were excellent, the beer was fresh and local,... More

What a lovely little charming restaurant to stumble upon! There's a beautiful simplicity about this place. :) Wonderful vegetarian options! It felt peaceful and calm inside and after an all day drive down beautiful Hwy. 1 we were ready to stretch our legs and relax with some delicious food and craft beer. Best fries ever! Great friendly service! Love this... More

What a neat find! Stopped in Cambria for some gas as we headed South to Santa Monica. We were hungry so we stopped in at the Old Stone Station. The food was excellent. The beef dip is big and the burgers are home made (and large as well). Get the cross-cut fries; they are really tasty. Staff was very friendly.... More

Had a nice little table outside on the patio allowing us to people watch as we ate. Was told they are known for their clam chowder - was very good. Unfortunately they were out of their bread bowls, but they gave me a nice sourdough roll instead. Husband had their fish and chips and enjoyed that as well. Nice and... More

I loved the Clam Chowder in a bread bowl and completely enjoyed the atmosphere. The best was the mirror in the lady's room...LOL

A late lunch due to seeing the elephant seals but a great lunch! We were the last customers but the waiters didn't try to rush us. The fish, chowder & fries were excellent. . .served fresh from the fryer. Our 8-year-old devoured the oysters! Really friendly staff.

Walked into this somewhat funky quaint old-town charming restaurant to be met by a server who asked us to wait until a table became available. Took about 15 minutes with no drinks offered or anything else. OK so far. Did not faze us. We then were seated by a very friendly gentleman who procured some decent wine and a perfectly... More
