Rustic setting

Laid back and filled with locals. It's a 1930's converted Gas Station, so cool to look at especially for the kids. The service was friendly. The food was delicious. They had a very good selection of local wines to choose from.

We were a little nervous at first when we learned that a place with a sign for Prime Rib and steak was out of prime rib and it was just 5 pm. But as it turned out i had the Tbone Steak and my wife had the flat iron steak, both of which were pretty tasty. I will say this... More

This restaurant was recommended by one of the locals in Morro Bay. After checking out the expansive menu we decided to give it a try. After we were seated we found out they were out of prime rib and oysters on the half shell. We also found out the only cocktail options were wine and beer. Hmmm, now we were... More

The service was great - they went above and beyond to make us and our dogs feel welcome. (patio) The evening was a bit chilly, and they went to great lengths to turn and and position the patio heater for us. Clam chowder was excellent!

We ate here for dinner after checking in to our hotel. Based on Trip Advisor reviews we were expecting a better experience in dining. We weren't looking for anything fancy, just good food and service. The food is average and the service was terribly slow. We sat upstairs and when we finished our meal we had to go find someone...

Cambria is a strange place. Pokey little town with not many options for food. The Old Stone Station is actually pretty good. It's a rustic old converted gas station. Unfortunately, it is dog friendly and therefore smells a bit like dog. If you can get over that, the food is quite delicious and the service was good. It's a family... More

An old gas station and the decor supports the vintage feel, nice atmosphere too. I'll be back when I can.

Nice little restaurant. Very quaint. Like an Old English pub. We had a great lunch here and I would highly recommend this little place to anyone in the area.

This was recommended by our hotel as one of the eateries in town with outside seating for us, traveling with our dog. The porch area was sheltered from wind and would have been sheltered from rain if it hadn't been a nice night--a hard-to-find feature for a dog-friendly restaurant. We didn't get to see if there was much "atmosphere" inside,... More

In the past we have eaten at almost every restaurant in the Cambria area. At the suggestion of our Inn Keeper we went to Old Stone Station (our first time). We ordered Garlic Bread, Chinese Chicken Salad and the Mushroom Swiss Burger. All the food was exceptional, but the burger was out of the world. This was one ofthe best... More
