We ate here because we were staying in the motel. I had a pizza which was covered in a ton of stringy inedible cheese. Breakfast pancakes were fine. A little expensive for what you get though. We avoided the Elvis karoake!

Perfectly acceptable breakfast and lunch. The clam chowder and garden salad were pretty good. Service was little slow.

We dined at this establishment on a Sunday night and the food was satisfactory but nothing special. But the real letdown was when the check (or "bill" if you prefer) was presented. The 15% was already added on and this was also the case on the credit card statement. We were a party of three and this is unprecedented in... More

We were staying across the road at The Morgan Hotel, and walked over to the San Simeon Beach Bar & Grill for dinner. The restaurant was very busy. Dinner was a mixed bag. My Shrimp Scampi was overcooked — tough shrimp and veggies. Plus my order of a cup of coffee came as a ½ a cup of coffee, and... More

While staying at the San Simeon State Park about 2 miles away from this restaurant we'd pretty much exhausted our choices of places to eat after 8 days in the area. We were more than pleasantly surprised to receive great service, good food at reasonable prices and the ability to get fed after 8:00 p.m. We were so happy with... More

Sat on the outdoor deck & watched the sun go down... lovely. The Cioppino was the best I've had outside of Italy or San Francisco!

Great food and friendly service. Prices a little higher than you'd expect from the look of the place. We really enjoyed our burgers. Delicious! Great stop after a tour at Hearst Castle!

Stopped in at the motel next door so this was the obvious place for dinner. Me and my brother shared a pizza, fries and chicken strips starter. Was a very nice meal, for good price, left full up unable to fit in a desert. Staff were very friendly, although they all need to learn how to tilt the glass when... More

My husband and I stopped here after dinner because it was an easy walk from our hotel. We were just planning on having a drink at the bar, but ended up staying for "Karaoke with Elvis." It was not very busy but those that were there definitely had fun. The gentleman playing Elvis was so sweet (and apparently in 3000... More

The food was good but the wait was long to get a seat. Over a hour but it could of been because it was a holiday weekend. I would try it again if in the area. The waitress was awesome. Great service.
