I'm so glad we didn't listen to some of the not so nice reviews of this place. We LOVED it. My salmon dinner and my husbands scallops were so good. Laid back waiter, not pushed through our dinner and just loved the outdoor atmosphere, simple and quiet. Other patrons kept their voices soft and no annoying music to yell over.... More

Limited menu. Not a good value. I would eat there again. Not much else in Cambria. Clam chowder was tasty. Nice ambiance.

We just had their clam chowder with bacon, it was OK but clams and bacon really don't go together. We know good chowder... however, the view is great.

So, my friend was having back pain and wasn't able to move after our long drive up down the coast and the only restaurant open till 9 near us was Moonstone Bar & Grill...(it was 8:20-ish, everything else closed at 8:30).

I'm sorry to hear about your friend's back, Devoney, and hope he's feeling better. I hope you'll understand that our take out policies have been in place for as long as we can remember, and in an effort to maintain a certain atmosphere, we don't do take out orders.

RIght on the other side of the road from the water. Such a beautiful view. Nice lunch that was reasonable considering most restaurant on the water gouge you. $13 for a BLT (with avocado) and $15 for pulled pork. $9.95 for kids Mel's that include ice cream but not a drink. Wine and. Ever very reasonable. $8.97 for a J... More

We enjoying sitting outside and savoring the gorgeous view of the ocean. Although the restaurant wasn't full we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Perhaps the management preferred to wait for a table rather than have to make do with slow service. I had the seafood pasta platter and my wife had the shrimp plaster platter. Both featured... More

You are paying more for the view than the food. We had the clam chowder (good, on the peppery side), coconut shrimp (ok, so sweet, it was more of a dessert than dinner) and the "12oz" steak (ok, not good, and not 12oz more like an 8oz) with one glass of wine...bill almost $90 plus tip.

We ate at this restaurant in March 2017 and basically the food itself was completely underwhelming. Bland would be one way to describe it as well as overpriced. However, the views are AMAZING!! Eating while watching the sunset was a great dining experience. Really wish that the food could have been just as amazing. Would I recommend this restaurant? If... More

When we arrived, the hostess wasn't super friendly to anyone except for fellow staff, so I wasn't sure what to expect. We waited a good 30 mins for an outdoor table (It is definitely a hotspot). Once outside the view was gorgeous and the food was delicious. The waiter was very nice and even though he was quite busy, he... More
