We ate here our first night staying at the lodge. Our waitress was very nice and was running all the tables so she was a bit frazzled. We felt bad. Our food was very good. We got steak and chicken and it was all tasty. The views are great of the water and mountains.

We were staying at the lodge over night so ate at the restaurant. We ate early around 5.30/6 as we wanted an early night and a chance to see the sunset without being rushed as the restaurant finished at 7.45pm! The service was very friendly. We sat in the window to see the view but the flys are a real... More

Just inside the door a sign says to seat yourself so I did. The table I chose near a window was wet so I told the server, who looked at me funny saying she had just wiped it. I asked for a towel and she returned and partially wiped the table top dry. I guess we're supposed to wait for... More

Our dinners were delicious. You can buy wine at the store on site. The restaurant is a quick walk from the cabins and rooms.

Amazing location with superb views. We were promptly served by an efficient and friendly waitress albeit in a rather abrupt style, and we thoroughly enjoyed a very tasty and substantial burger and blue cheese with fries and a coke. The little flies which seemed to take a shine to us were annoying though but they had been a feature of... More

Food was good and the views were great, costs were a little on the high side, but you pay for the location. Chocolate bars were $2.50 each in the store, quite expensive.

We stopped there for lunch along the foggy coast because I had stayed there several years ago and enjoyed the view. We ate inside because it was cool and foggy ordering a chicken Caesar salad and turkey Reuben with two ice teas. In retrospect, we should have ordered the "famous" Fish and Chips at $22 and split the serving plus... More

The family that owns the lodge and restaurant purchased the property south of Big Sur in the late 1800s. It has stayed in the family ever since. The lodges, individual little buildings, have electricity and water but no internet and no TV. The restaurant has a full bar and is open for three meals a day. Everything is overlooking the... More
