Great restaurant above the trail

Lovely location for a short vacation, nice trails around property and an ice cream truck to boot. Rainy day, but still lovely.

My husband loved the clam chowder,... More

We stopped at Ragged Point on our way down the PCH. It's the last elevated point of Big Sur, so it's worth a stop.

When we walked into our room at Ragged Point, we were blown away by the expansive view of the central coast from our patio. The grounds here include a private nature path that leads you to a waterfall and beautiful beach. The rooms here were Clean and cozy. If I were to make one recommendation it would be to expand...

We ate there some days ago, the lunch was nice, my tartar sauce was very nice and my fish was fantastic, but the service was terrible...we waited 40 minutes for 3 plates! The view was very good!

When travelling on Highway 1 Ragged Point Inn is a great rest stop , get stuff to eat, buy a sovernier, use the loo or visit their gardens for great views of the coast from up on the cliffs. Its worth the short stop
