We had been to the Hearst Castle and were driving down through Moonstone Beach before heading into Cambria for dinner. We had spent some time on the board walk looking at the setting sun and bird life when we spotted the Moonstone Beach Bar & grill. The outside eating area was already packed at 6PM so decided this may be... More

Delicious food and the best Bloody Mary I've ever had. Great choice to sit outside. I had the fish and chips which was amazing. Light and flaky, without the greasy batter usually seen on fried fish. My boyfriend had the Ruben which was equally delicious.

A friendly family type restaurant with excellent food, right on the beach, so the views are nice as well. We were her 2 times during our stay in Moonstone beach and both times were served excellent food with a big smile. Go here for an informal dinner with friends and family.

Visited for Sunday brunch. Fast service, items were well-prepared. California scramble had half an avocado atop each plate. Good avocado makes me happy! Up to 2 glasses free champagne with entree order, as well. Eat, drink, watch whales. A nice way to spend some time!

Was staying at the near by Castle Inn. Turned out to be a terrific spot for a late night dinner. Ate outdoors on the patio. Excellent service. Waiter was very nice.

Great service, wonderful food. Every member of staff we walked by when leaving thanked us for coming. Don't think I need to say anymore than that. One of the nicest dinners we have had on this trip. Oh and the views are amazing.

We enjoyed our breakfast Sunday morning. We were seated upon arrival at about 8:30. My wife Kathy and I split the Pacific Coast Toast, french bread baked in cream, laced with grand marnier and cinnamon, served with sautéed oregon berries and topped with chantilly cream. We also added a side of potatoes and sausage. Kathy said the coffee was good.... More

The views outside are exceptional, but the food was average and over priced. The service is good but my steak was nothing to brag about.
