We walked to this place from our hotel. The food was to die for. Our waiter left a little to be desired. I would go back and hope to!

The food was "OK" but nothing exceptional and the restaurant was virtually empty. The service was reasonable.

Few places in Cambria are open late. This was one of the latest at 9pm. Great menu, well-prepared. A very efficient and friendly team of servers.

Expensive prices and mediocre fare. We should have gone with our first choice down the street, but we were hungry and the 45-minute wait there deterred us. So we opted for Moonstone and were quite disappointed by our mediocre food - salmon and seafood pasta.More

Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill offers our diners breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Diners may choose to sit outside on our ocean front patio or they may sit inside where our large picturesque window allows a vast view of the ocean.

We offer fresh seafood, steaks, and pasta. Our specialties include our creamy clam chowder and mouth-watering sauces that compliment every fresh seafood entree. For meat lovers, we offer a variety of juicy, delicious steaks. If you're a fan of onion rings be sure to order our Pork Chops; you won't be disappointed. We are known for our delicately battered fish and chips and our scrumptious fish tacos that make for a delicious lunch plate.

Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill also boasts a full service bar where we have a variety of beers and a wine list that features central coast wineries. For the adventurous drinkers, be sure to try something from our special cocktail menu.

We take pride in our excellent service and being a kid-friendly establishment with a free toy for every child. While we love pets, we do ask that you leave your pets at home when dining at Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill.

When dining at Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill remember to sit back, relax, and enjoy!
