After our Hearst Castle Tour we stop here to grab lunch. The day before we did wine tasting in Paso Robles and our driver recommended it to us. It was a Sunday and this place was buzzing when we rolled into the parking lot ...good sign. It is SUPER casual which I love places like it. I ordered the Fish... More

We had a good experience with the food although it is expensive. I am not a "burger person" but I made an exception and really liked the bread and how juicy it was. We shared some fries and they were tasty, also.

Stopped here for lunch and a beer after a visit to Hearst Castle. We sat outdoors because it was a nice day. Although it is near the beach, the view is blocked by buildings across the street. The 1/2 pound cheeseburger was excellent and had a great bun as well. The side order of fries was enormous. A single burger... More

First it is very expensive. $14 for an avocado, bacon and cheese burger, and that is WITHOUT French fries or any other side dish. Just the burger. The burger was tasteless. They put some kind of sauce that erases the flavor of the bacon or the beef. It was very messy dripping goop on my hands every time I held... More

The staff was great but the menu was incredible. I loved the fish sandwich and I would go back and have it again and again!

Stopped at Sebastian's on our way to Hearst Castle(whcih by the way they sold out all of their afternoon tours and had to return the next day). Make sure you order the fish tacos with their battered onion rings, along witha bottle of Hearst Castle Rose Wine. It is heaven!

If you stop by, you should really order the Tri-tips sandwich. My hubby and I split one and it was so tender and flavorful! Onion rings were great too. Nice little cafe.

Just across the street from the entrance to Hearst Castle. This is the #1 rated restaurant, and it's good BUT know that it's a burger place, not a fancy restaurant. We had good chili and an exceptionally good grilled fish sandwich. There's a Hearst wine bar there also, so you can pair a glass with your lunch, or try one... More

Had a great burger here! But the highlight was the wine tasting. We found the staff to be Friendly and very knowledgeable about the Hearst wines. We ended up buying an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon.
