Great food bit pricey.

Like the food but overpriced. But I guess we are paying for location and it is the only restaurant until you get past Hearst Castle.

On our drive up the Big Sur coast, we stopped at Ragged Point to see the beautiful view. It was a weekend, and the place was hopping with live music, barbeque grill, people, and sunshine. As we walked to the viewpoint, the music enveloped us and the aroma from the grill drew us in. We ended up ordering a dinner... More

Stopped here on our way to Santa Cruz. Beautiful location. There were 2 people in front of us in line when we arrived on July 15- peak travel season. They had one dopey guy taking the order (with ZERO customer service skills) and one cook. Total joke. Took 10 minutes just to get to the window. Ordered 2 sandwiches and... More

The Ragged Point Inn was an excellent place to stop during a recent trip down Highway 1. The view is excellent. The diner is very good with excellent outdoor seating. The trail to the beach is challenging but worth the effort.

Stayed here many years ago as a kid, it's still beautiful, bigger yes, and less wild, but still a fine stop for a bite or a brew, Great Bartender. Make sure to take the walk overlooking the sea, out by the sitting area and pergola, Magnificent.

On the Pacific Coast Highway (U.S. One), we stopped for gas and food at the open air grill; it smelled delicious. The food was excellent but prices way over the top. We decided to move on and not top-up the gas at $5 a gallon.

Stopped here on our way up the coast. Got some BBQ chicken from the grill out side, the guy was in a hurry trying to cook it. He had lots of options but we chose chicken. When we started eating it we realized it was still chewy and pink. We told the guy and he put it back on the... More

The dining inside was pretty pricey, so we ate at the stand outside. I had a turkey sand which and my dad had a hamburger and fries. They were both pretty good. There's not a lot of choices to eat on this road, but if u want simple and cheap this would be a decent option.

This should be a required stop on the way north. Eating outside during the day in the colorful gardens next to a fire pit is a really lovely experience. A short walk from your the tables is an incredible view of the coast. The fare was soooo tasty. I loved the fish and chips. Some of the best I have... More

Road Trip up Hwy 1. Decided to stop for dinner since we were unsure when the next food stop would be. Beautiful view of the coast. We ate at the bar. Steak Tacos were tasty but the service was slow and the prices were high compared to the quality of the food
