If you're looking for fish and chips, order the cod, not the halibut. It's delicious. The Ceasar salad with chicken was also good. The place is comfy without being run down and the guests of all ages looked like they felt as comfortable as we did. Quick and efficient service as well.

Want to dine with your pooch? They have a rear outside patio for you and the fur kid. The fish and chips (fresh fish dipped and fried on the premises) is great. Salads are fresh and tasty. Worth the stop........lunch or dinner. This is a family operation.

The fish tacos were good, enjoyable. The service is good too, though quite rushed (weird for a Monday night and the place almost being empty).

We ate here, theres not a lot of choice in Cambria & this looked better than the bigger places. The service from the bartender was good, food arrived quickly, but fish & chips was just that, not a huge portion & no garnish or accompaniments, just a small salad garnish would have been good, also served in plastic baskets, really...

Our server was also the bartender-and I must say doing a great job at both. Food was typical pub grub and tasty. They have a full bar and nice selection of wine and beer.

We were staying at the Little Sur Inn on the Moonstone Drive which is about a mile or so away from the Main Street of Cambria (not walkable due to crossing the highway). We called in for lunch and it was empty apart from a few people sat at the bar. Served by the lovely lady behind the bar who... More

This was a small bar/ restaurant which was empty when we went in, friendly service and food was ok. Not much of an atmosphere though, when we came out we came across a few other bar/ grills which were very busy. Have a walk around Cambria first before you decide
