We were disappointed in the lunch fare at the Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill. The view was BEAUTIFUL, but the lunch menu was lacking for us. When we go to the beach we want to eat seafood and the choices were very limited for seafood. I believe they only had salmon or shrimp. We had a shrimp cocktail and a... More

After an hour walk on the plank boardwalk I stopped in for a lite dinner. It also a 2 minutes walk to my room. Very attentive staff, friendly waitstaff and quick service on a Thursday night in the winter---I was a solo diner--they accommodated all my quirky requests and checked in on me appropriately. Had a salad, crab cakes and... More

This was our 3rd or 4th time brunching over the past few years and as always the service was spot on and the food delicious. Nothing overly fancy but the location can't be beat, and like I said the consistency is key. We will keep coming back.

Thank goodness this place was open until 2pm on Thanksgiving Day. The weather was so nice we sat out on the patio enjoying the sun rays and ocean breeze.

This place was a bit confusing for us - the prices and decor made it seem like an upscale restaurant but then you got plastic cups, bread bowls and paper napkins. It was also very hot in there and they cannot serve you water unless you specifically ask for it as it was a "state mandate" although we had just... More

I'm sorry if we didn't explain out policies better in the moment, but our decision to limit dishware that would require tons of water to clean stems from the drought Cambria has been facing. As such, we limit the waste of water as best as we can with a few simple changes to traditional dining experiences. We feel it's definitely... More

Dinner tonight was our first visit. I was very impressed and this place is now numero uno for out-of-town guests. (It's on the Pacific Ocean shore). Granted we went off season during a rain storm, which explains why the restaurant was at 25% capacity. (Californians stay at home when it rains). I had the fish special, Ono. It was cooked... More

We dined here twice. The service was reasonably quick, but not pushy. Their salads are good, and I really enjoyed the Gorgonzola and Walnut salad. The first night my wife had the fresh fish dinner (Ono fish) which was served with a spicy sauce and Spanish rice. I had the pork chop dinner (2 chops), served with smashed potatoes. The... More
