We were camping at the side of Big Sur and came here for dinner. The menu was't huge, but there was enough choice for supper, nothing fancy, but tasty American food.

Came here for lunch one day, the staff were friendly and helpful with menu items. The food servings were large and tasty. Would recommend to anyone staying close by or driving through for a casual meal.

Love this little gem. Casual indoor/outdoor dining. A great bike or rest stop on the way up or down PCH. Be sure to check out the back and eat at the tables under the redwoods. Oh and play a bit of ping pong!

A very cozy place in the middle of the woods. Gotta love the friendly vibe and very large selection of drinks.

After my first visit to Fernwood Grill April 2015, I gave it 5 stars and said that we would "definitely return." Well, we did... and it was completely different experience... and not for the better. First of all, there was huge fire in the area so we could not sit outside. That's okay, we found a nice, quiet spot inside...... More

Surround by giant redwoods feels like you're sitting in the middle of the Forest. Great service we had the pork quesadilla and sliders, very tasty. Great place to stop along the way, would be a fun place to stay a while too.

I will get the good part out of the way. My family and I (with our dog in tow) had dinner here last week. The food was very good, flavorful and cooked just right. We sat in the back on their backyard terrace among the trees. Very beautiful and relaxing! The service however left much to be desired! We waited... More

Our family of 4 had dinner here this week. Great service, wide selection of food and beer, good food and nice outside deck. Relative to other local spots, was a good value and on the low priced side. Would definitely return and recommend to all. On top of everything, had a nice jukebox and late night kere-oke!

We had great food and beers here. At first sight it looks not so great. But we were hungry and didn't want to drive any further. It turned out that this grill has a beautiful backyard terrace. The burgers were delicious and the local beers were cold and very tasty. Staff was very nice. Will definitely come back here.

I had a late lunch here after hiking in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. It was a great place to have lunch and I enjoyed the meal very much. First, the setting is cool. It has a lodge feel and has a cozy deck nestled among trees. Second, I ordered the tri tip sandwich and it was great. I was... More
