If you are going someplace for a drink and maybe an appetizer and want a great view of the ocean this place is OK. They are open for lunch from 11 to 3 then they close for 2 hours to prep dinner. We got there at 1:00 and had several parties ahead of us. Everybody wanted to sit out on... More

Stayed in the Cambria area right on Moonstone Rd. The Beach Bar and Grill was very close to our hotel. We asked for a table outside so that we could enjoy the great ocean view, which we received. A small wait of 15 minutes was spent at the bar enjoying a drink. The service and food was very good. Many... More

Conveniently located near our lodging. It was fairly crowded, but we were able to get a table right away at 6:30. Good variety on the menu; prawns were quite good.

We ate here our third night in Cambria. The room is nice, but nothing extraordinary. I had a steak with a red-wine reduction as the sauce. It was a nice cut of meat, but I wish I could have tasted the red wine in the reduction a little bit more. It was a chilly evening, so non-patio, inside tables were... More

Our family of four stopped at Moonstone Beach on the way up the coast. We had a lovely dinner outside on the terrace. We were lucky enough to put our name on the lists, check into our inn down the road and get seated with a shortened wait. One reason we didn't have to wait too long is that our... More

Not the greatest food, and pretty pricey, but it served its purpose. Wonderful view of the sea and sunset from the outdoor seating, good drinks, decent service. Handy to our motel.

We were a party of 4 and went to dinner at the Moonstone B&G on a weeknight. They don't take reservations, so we had a 20 minute wait for a table. The table they offered us was right next to the kitchen, so we asked for another table away from the kitchen. We ended up waiting another 20 minutes for... More

Excellent Food & service. The hostess overheard that it was my husbands Birthday & the waitress brought out a delicious BD cake for him. The place was packed & I can certainly see why.
