“Good Food and a Good View”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have always believed that restaurants could either have nice views or good food, never both. Moonstone Grill challenges this belief with an inventive and locally inspired menu, excellent bar and wonderful views of the pacific ocean (particularly at sunset). This is one of the best places to eat in Humboldt County.

“Love this place”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Somewhat remote area. Costal travel to get here. Lovely area, staff and decent food. Not cheap but there is not a whole lot around. Beautiful views, sunsets. Worth a stop for a drink or dinner. People were very nice. We were staying at a hotel on moonstone beach so this was or place for eating. Very nice.

“Great food, great view”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

It's a bit difficult to get to, but the view is lovely, and the food and service are excellent. It is pricey. Probably a bit more pricey than it merits. But not a lot more. The menu is varied - with something for everyone, although less depth for vegetarians. And great dessert!!

“Great view, expensive”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

While Seascape by the pier in Trinidad is expensive, dirty, and bad quality, at least the Moonstone Grill a few miles south is high quality. It offers a great sunset view out over the ocean, especially if it isn't foggy or raining. Expect to pay a lot
