The restaurant was very busy when we got there and we were lucky to have a table. The service was good, friendly and quick, and we had a couple of drinks while waiting for our meals - they were probably too busy for the kitchen...More

My wife and I had two breakfasts and two dinners here. The food and service were excellent and much much better than anything we experienced in Carmel the previous three days. Recommend it!

The food as well ad service was average the vegetables with my entrée were cold when served. The entrée was very spicy which I have never had spicy meatloaf before. My wife's scallops were very sandy, I wouldn't eat there again personally.

Breakfast was fine; nothing to rave or complain about. Same with dinner. No reason to make a special trip here, but decent, uninspiring choices to fill the belly of a hungry traveler weary from 4+ hours on the road.

I did not partake, but definitely observed a full bar.
Hi, we will be traveling through San Simeon, unfortunately for only one night. The good thing is it happens to be Thanksgiving. Do you need to be staying at the hotel to book dinner at the restaurant. Can you please advise me what special dinner or night we might expect on Thanksgiving. There will be 7 of us.
