Great friendly service, great food. Best in San Simeon. Top quality. Stayed at the Sea Breeze just up the road. Have been coming here for 4 years on our trips to LA. Do yourself a favour and eat here!

I will preface this by saying we went on Christmas Eve when this place was one of two open in the area. The greeter was a little brisk with everyone, not to welcoming, but efficient. Our server was wonderful and attentive, but not at all...More
