We stayed at the Lodge for 2 nights and enjoyed the location, our room and the hikes in the area. On our first night, we had dinner at the hotel's restaurant. We experienced poor service (15 minutes to get a drink, waiting too long to order, specific orders were incorrect, etc) and very average food quality vs. price. I would... More

Great Location, party of 3, we repeatedly advised server that one party member could not eat cheese, guess what... the dish in question was smothered in cheese... I did call server... she just shrugged her shoulders and walked off. the other dishes were cold and sloppy, as for the toilets.. disgusting.. summed up the overall experience. Staff attitude and hygiene... More

This lodge is situated in a scenic state park. The restrooms were out of order, which were on convenient. We sat outside for lunch. Our meals arrived cold. One of my family specifically requested no cheese, due to a food allergy. When her meal arrived it included cheese. We mentioned it to the waitress but she did not apologise or... More

We were very disappointed with the food. I had a blt: lots of L, small slice of T, and undiscoverable B on white bread. Wife had a salad that was 99.9 percent lettuce. Service was terrible too. Too bad, it's a nice facility with a patio surrounded by pines.

Turning off the Pacific Coastal Highway, we had planned to do the hike to see Pfeiffer Falls. However, it was a rather wet day and we decided that we didn't want to risk the possibly slippery conditions up- and downhill with our young children. So, it was a simple decision to drop in at the lodge restaurant instead for a... More

We were staying at Big Sur Lodge so we decided to try their food. We didn't expect anything. I ordered Big Sur short ribs and it came out incredible. They charged $10 for a corkage fee so it was a perfect dish to pair with our choice of wine. And the staffs was nice and friendly.

Stopped and had lunch here after hiking and it was decent. We just had a few sandwiches and it was quite expensive. It was refreshing sitting under the big trees sharing lunch with the wildlife.

Wonderful evening in a great State Park with Redwood Trees and a river running through it. Andrew was the manager and he was super attentive, very personable and a great reflection on the rest of the staff that were outstanding as well. There's a lot of competition in Big Sur and if you want casual beautiful dining I'd recommend giving... More

This is a good place to share a salad and entree. We had driven all day and decided to dine at the lodge where we were staying, rather than wander farther along. The food was good to very good, and the service very pleasant, but pricey for the very casual surroundings. It was delightful to look out on the beautiful... More
