I never visit Cambria without stopping in at the West End. It's one of maybe three full bars in town (most other places are beer and wine only), and the service is always terrific. If you happen to visit on a day when Carol is working the bar, be sure to tell her Wayne sent you. (This won't get you... More

We had the ABC burger. Great food & service. Sit on the patio. Cambria has a water shortage; bottled water is only 25 cents here instead of $2 at other places.

Walked in by accident, mixed and friendly crowd. Prompt service from hostess and barman. Barman was really friendly and provided lots of knowledge of the area. Good selection of food and beer on tap.

I ordered the cod fish and chips for take out. They had it ready in 10-15 min, and it was awesome. Some of the best fish I've had in a really long time. Good portion. The atmosphere in-house was really laid back and enjoyable -- it was 6:30pm on a weekday.

We found this place on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. The service was relaxed and friendly. We enjoyed our sandwiches which were great and reasonably priced. All of the meals served looked good.

The good was great and the only way the clam chowder could have been faster would have been if she knew what we wanted before we came in! Went with the waitress's recommendation for cod!

Service was very slow - it took a long time to order and a long time for the food to arrive at the table, it almost felt as though we had been forgotten. The food was ok: fish and chips, calamari and chips and chicken tenders and chips.

If you're looking for fish and chips, order the cod, not the halibut. It's delicious. The Ceasar salad with chicken was also good. The place is comfy without being run down and the guests of all ages looked like they felt as comfortable as we did. Quick and efficient service as well.

Want to dine with your pooch? They have a rear outside patio for you and the fur kid. The fish and chips (fresh fish dipped and fried on the premises) is great. Salads are fresh and tasty. Worth the stop........lunch or dinner. This is a family operation.
