There is a pretty view, but you can't see the sunset. And the wait was just too long for an outside table. So we ended up having a decent meal but nothing special for the price and long wait. Probably could have found something better on Ocean Ave before or after watching the sunset from the beach.

A great way to spend Sunday morning! I'm not a buffet person, but the view of the sheep in the meadow and the bay beyond is worth it!

By mistake, I reviewed the restaurant as the Mission Ranch. Didn't stay at the Inn. Just had dinner at the restaurant. Great dinner. This is a must for dinner in Carmel. Please see my mistakenly placed review for the Mission Ranch that really applies to the restaurant.

There are no reservations so we arrived expecting to wait for a table but we were offered an outside table immediately. It was a little chilly but they had a lot of heaters so it was comfortable. The food was really good and the service was excellent; the view as also great. After dinner we took some seats at the... More

Walked from our bed and breakfast to this restaurant. Sat outside with a view of the sheep grazing in the field. The food was good and the service was better.

I have been here about 7 or 8 times over the last 15-20 years. Most recently the experience remained on par with all the other times. Every time, it remains a fantastic place to eat. The service is good, the food is delicious, and the location is beautiful. It's a fantastic place to go with a group or as a... More

We have dined at the Mission Ranch every Thanksgiving weekend for many years. The prime rib sandwich and the peppermint ice cream are must orders. On a recent Friday afternoon, we stopped by early to catch the sunset on the patio. The patio has a great beach and meadow view, with the added attraction of the resort's own sheep herd... More
