Very convenient to the Blue Dolphin Inn where we were staying. A family restaurant with a great choice of steaks, fish, etc. My wife said that her prawns & rice was the best meal on this tour. I had halibut, which was very good. Friendly service and good value for money.

Nothing terribly wrong, just mediocre food at a snail's pace. Cambria is just minutes down the road with a great selection of places to eat.

We had driven to the beach from wine country and we were hungry! I had the candied walnut and gorgonzola salad and it was really delicious! I also had the clam chowder in the bread bowl and couldn't finish all if either. Delicious and filling. My husband had the salmon and loved it. He doesn't give iut praise lightly. The service was wonderful with a staff that were obviously trained to take good care of customers. They were recommended by someone we met in Atascadero the day before and I pay it forward here. Great place!

Love going here when I stay on Moonstone Beach. Love sitting in their patio and having cocktails at lunch or at sunset. Beautiful views. Food is good and service is good. Cute t-shirts as well.

Excellent beach casual dinners in a great beach location just minutes from Cambria village and a short walk from all the motels along Moonstone Beach. The Sea Scallops were perfectly seared and a bottle of Honig sauvignon blanc for just $20, so good. They have a VERY affordable wine list and a full list of excellent choices from the bar.
