We spend time at the West End with our Wedding guests for an after party about 13 years ago. We had been to Cambria many times but just returned to the West End this trip. It was cozy and warm, the bartender was very nice, and they are still a solid place to eat and drink. Only suggestion, when in... More

Walked into the West End bar because pretty much everything else was closed. But we were not dissapointed! Very nice fish and chips, friendly waitress, good atmosphere. Had a nice conversation with some locals. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Food was decent and server/bartender was a nice guy. With drinks and entrees it was around $40 with tip. French Dip was good with a nice portion of fries for $12.95. Have tv's and an outdoor patio.

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.
