We stopped in for nachos and drinks. Friendly atmosphere, good service. There is a great deck in the back but it was a little too chilly for us to enjoy.

While we didn't eat at Fernwood Grill, we did enjoy some beers on the back deck which is amongst the Redwood trees. It's a nice setting. They have some good draft beers available.

They had high hopes but food was stale and the pulled pork sliders were like pulled pork jerky sliders. We were in California and yet they only had one white wine and ewwww it was awful, really. You have the best wines in the world and you are a bar. What happened there? It's beautiful but the cost for our... More

We stayed at Fernwood for three nights and had dinner in the grill on the last night. They have several pizza combinations to pick from or you can build one from the ingredient list. We opted for the goat cheese, sun dried tomato and fresh basil. We did however ask for the pesto sauce instead of the red sauce. It... More

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
