I live in Trinidad and have been coming to the Moonstone Grill about once a month. I also run a bed and breakfast and send my guests here all the time. The view here is amazing and it is my favorite bar in Humboldt County. I always sit at the bar because reservations are not needed there for dinner. Kim... More

Location is great and Had a wonderful view. Very kid friendly. The waitress went the extra step rushing the orders of my kids food. Definitely will go back.

My wife and I dined here and both had fish dishes. They were nicely done but either lacked some flavor or had too much salt. Unfortunately we cam after sundown so did not get to enjoy what I'm sure is a beautiful view. Service was fair and decor was a bit shabby in relation to price of food.

We are long time patrons of this establishment. We have seen it go from a fantastic A+ to a C below average. I am glad to report that it seems to be on an upswing. The fish was cooked perfectly and the flavors were great. You can no longer order fresh whole Maine lobster with out a weeks notice but... More

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!
