Moonstone Grill overlooks beautiful Moonstone Beach in Humboldt County. The food, the view, and the bar are all excellent. This time of year (September) you can see whales spouting in the distance and enjoy a great fog free sunset that lasts until 7:00 PM. The food is excellent. You will not be disappointed.

The food was very, very good, even if a little pricey. Service was not the best, but it was a very busy night. The dining room is very loud. The view was fantastic. Nice restaurant, we would return.

We recently dined here during a brief stay in Trinidad. We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor ratings and a recommendation from the hosts at our B&B, the Turtle Rocks Inn. We had a wonderful dinner. We each had the filet mignon and they were probably the best filets we have ever had. They were very tender, flavorful and absolutely... More

This is a fantastic place for dinner with wonderful atmosphere, great food, and very pleasant service! Pre dinner bar drinks were ideal. Dinner was outstanding with a delicious Scallop Rockefeller app followed by an entree of a huge 18 oz lobster tail with Yukon gold garlic mashed potato, simply put..to die for!!

Great location, although it was too foggy to see much the evening we were there. Fantastic service and some of the best raw oysters I've had. The salmon was fantastic. Decent bar. Highly recommend!

Love the casual bar seating and the table service is lovely. I always get fish or lobster. Fantastic view , the corner table by windows very romantic. Great place to bring visitors and a fun time for locals at the bar where you can also order food.

The Moonstone Grill is in a fabulous location with an unbeatable ocean view. It's well placed bar is a superb place to meet people, enjoy a cocktail ( and maybe appetizers) and watch the sunset. It is truly beautiful and shouldn't be missed. Sadly, however, the food is nothing special and fairly pricey. So enjoy the beauty; indulge in a... More
