Renew your spirit at the full service restaurant and bar at Big Sur River Inn. Enjoy a fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner in the historic dining room or outside on the deck, the lawn or along the bank of the Big Sur River. Have a seat on one of the bent willow chairs in the river and let the smooth current cool your feet as you enjoy the best Big Sur lunch around. What sets us apart from other Big Sur restaurants is our 100-year-old tradition of locally grown fine food, friendly, efficient service and warm hospitality. And yes, we still serve the original homesteader’s version of "Hot Apple Pie!"

From outside, the sign says Country Comfort Food...When we walked in, it is totally unexpected and welcoming with updated decor, good food, river in the back patio area. Overall great experience especially when we had spent a day in the cold exploring.
We stopped here for lunch. Very cute place, nice staff, and beautiful location. I thought the prices were a bit high, but the food was good. We weren't too hungry so we split the chicken sandwhich and a salad with lemon vinegarette. Even though we...More
