Food was cold that should have been hot, especially the french fries. Service was slow and not friendly. I would not go here again.

Perfect! Fast food at a low price with an adjoining wine tasting room! Order food and get a glass of local wine- what more could you ask for?!?! ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

Great view and good service. Stopped here for lunch whilst driving up the coast to San Francisco. Ordered the fish and chips and quesadilla, both were cooked well and tasted great. Staff were friendly but a bit slow with offering drinks and refills.

We dropped into this local establishment on “hotel row” not expecting much. Indeed, the interior decorations were pretty basic and dated - but we had a good experience nonetheless. Both a Chicken Parmesan and Fried Chicken dinner were very tasty, and the wait staff (multiple...More

I come to San Simeon for 2 or 3 days each month on business and have now eaten in every restaurant in town. My dinner tonight was disappointing to say the least! Everything was WAY overpriced but I have paid more for a really good...More
