The other reviews on the price/amount of tacos made me choose the salad. It was delicious! Sit outside and enjoy the view! A little pricey, but no other options

It was probably the size of my hand and I ate it all. A rare treat for me but it was so tasty. Most of the people were having fish around us but I read many reviews about the burger and had to try it. The fries were a perfect accompaniment to share and the wine tasting room is over... More

Generous sized meals, served fresh and quickly for a lunch stopover on your way along the coast, or if you're visiting Hearst castle.

This is an old 1852 building. Plenty of area to eat inside or outside. Menu is simple and the food tastes great. Had the fried rock fish and chips and a fish taco. Only disappointed that there was one taco for the $7 price. There's also a winery and post office inside. Definitely a must stop to take in the... More

This is located just down the road from Hearst Castle, so it's on the way no matter which direction you plan to head after your tour! The day we were there was heavy with the marine layer so we didn't have a good view, but we could hear the ocean so we knew it must have been a pleasant view.... More

This little joint serves very good sandwiches and bar food. We had a burger and a turkey bacon sandwich with avocado - both were moist, tasty and came in large portions. We didn't try the fish and chips but saw someone having it: it looked yummy and large enough for 2 people. We sat outside in the sun on the... More

This place inspired the term, "hole in the wall." It is a bar, a post office and a grill, all in an old building with floors that slope different ways. Sebastian's is the only place in this little town to eat, but that does not lower its standard for good food! The burgers are indeed huge, but the different presentations... More

Very good food at very good prices. The portions are more than enough to insure that you will be paying for your cardiologist's kids college tuition. Really, get something and split it. You can always order more but I guarantee you will not. People super friendly. Check it out. Truly enjoyable laid back atmosphere. Easy to find. Sebastian's will create... More

I enjoyed this restaurant a lot. It's in an ideal location, especially if you're visiting the Hearst Castle. The food is a bit pricey but very good. The staff are helpful too and made good suggestions. I would advise if you get a pulled pork sandwich, you might want to split it because it's very large! My friend and I... More
