Came here on our honeymoon and scared after reading the dinner reviews. Asked for a lunch menu, as that seemed to have good reviews. Was told they only do the dinner menu ! Ordered the scallops and wedge salad starters. Really tasty and good value for money! Then had the lobster bisque (smaller plate) and coco nib! Both were good portions (being English and not American), tasted good but needed more seasoning on both plates! Overall the feeling was of relief of receiving a good meal at ok prices! House wine price ($20) made up for the over priced entrees! Server was attentive (Brandi) and the host was very accommodating!

The waitress was a Deadhead, I think, pleasant but inattentive and vague. The busboy was great. The site (Ragged Point) lovely, like everywhere else in this stretch of California One.

However, the food was extraordinarily lifeless and bland. It was like one of those restaurants in need of an intervention from the Celebrity Chef - perhaps it once was good (the menu promised much) but through some core dysfunction the food delivered was just barely edible.

Had lunch there today. Kept it simple. Burger with fries. WOW...yum. Great grilled burger, simple delicious. Chef is a nice guy. Came out to the table, chatted to make sure things were good. They were excellent. This would be a very nice place for a wedding too. Ocean views, beautiful grounds.

If you are traveling the Big Sur Coast on the weekends, make sure you stop at the Ragged Point Inn north of Big Sur for some amazing BBQ. This smoky, delicious fare is cooked outdoors on the patio area-not in the restaurant. There is plenty of seating and the views are fabulous.

I had the chicken and tri tip combo which included beans, and corn on the cob, for $17.95. It was more food than I could consume; in fact my friend and I ordered it to split, along with a delicious root beer float! Believe it or not, it was more BBQ than we could eat, and that's saying a lot!

The chef has been cooking BBQ on the central coast for the last 11 years, and he knows what he is doing. Cooked outdoors on an open oak fire, the chicken was incredibly succulent and flavorful. It's so easy to over cook chicken, but this was delicious! Likewise, the tri tip was cooked exactly to order-medium rare, with that wonderful tri tip "rind" along the edges. The meat was melt-in-your-mouth wonderful!

If you like stunning views, live music, outdoor eating, and rubbing shoulders with tourists from all over the world, the Saturday/Sunday BBQ is outstanding!

We stopped here for lunch during our drive on PCH/US1.

I had the seafood salad - which included a great variety of seafood (scallops, crab, calamari, and some others) with a lovely dressing and bread accompaniment. My daughter had the chicken caesar, and my son had a grilled sandwich. All of us were very pleased with the quality and quantity of the food. It was fresh, and well-prepared. I was also impressed by the amount of seafood in my salad - six medium-large scallops and a generous dollop of crabmeat, as well as several pieces of calamari and some other items.

Beverages were generous, and iced tea was refillable. We will make this a "must-stop" next time we take this route! If you have the time and money and are looking for a place to stay in the area, I'd recommend the inn for its location and - if the rooms are given the same attention as the meals - its amenities.
