There were 25 to 30 bikers in the parking lot, many consuming alcohol and smoking marijuana. The one unisex restroom had a long line. The store was open, The store clerk said the restaurant... More

What a fabulous place. You must stop off at restaurant if you are passing. Their veranda overlooks the cliffs and the ocean and is served by very pleasant and attentive staff. The food is good and the drinks reasonable. Fabulous place!

We'd originally planned to stop at Nepenthe for lunch but it was closed because of the Soberanes wildfire. As I hadn't researched anywhere else for lunch we originally stopped at Lucia Lodge just to use the restrooms. Nosing around the lodge I saw the restaurant terrace and the fact that it had some free tables. The menu looked good, the... More

As other reviewers attest, there's a stunning view of the Big Sur coastline from this cliffside restaurant. That alone would make a stop here worth it. But there's much more. PEOPLE: The servers with whom we interacted were especially friendly, personable and good-natured. We enjoyed chatting with them and learned a lot from them about this special place and what...

I had the best salad I ever had - with Wasabi dressing. The whole family loved their lunch. The view is stunning - not cheap but really worth a stop.

We stayed and are here on our drive down the PC highway earlier this week. Good value and good food. This area has only a few options and we enjoyed our time and meal at Lucia.

The restaurant options along this stretch of coast are limited - fortunately Lucia Lodge is excellent. Easy going, great food, efficient (non nonsense) service. Decent value considering the relative isolation of this spot. A great choice for lunch.
