Nice little deli/grill with very cold beer and outside seating. If you are lucky you might meet a local character named Steve Munsie. Be sure and check out his colorful commentary on Pacific Grove history and culture.

This was a block from our inn. A nice, quiet restaurant. I'm sure it's popular with the locals which is what we wanted. Friendly and accommodating. One of the best Philly cheese steaks I've had! Hats off to the chef.

Nice little place with outdoor patio where you can bring your dog. Indoor has seats too, but no dogs allowed in there. Good variety of food selections and drinks (beer/wine only). Won't break your wallet like full scale restaurants, especially if you have kids with you. The burgers are very good and the bowls are yummy as well. Enjoy!

We visit Pacific Grove once a year and each time we make a point to eat here. Great burgers. Place isn't much to look at but the burgers are cooked on a perfectly seasoned grill. Let friendly on the out door patio. Appears to be local favorite.

This place has a large selection of gourmet burgers and wraps among other things. I obviously can't speak for all the items but our FIRESIDE BURGER (with BBQ Sauce, Corn Salsa, And Cheddar Cheese) was great.

We enjoyed a flavorful hamburger and fries sitting outside on the patio watching the parade down the main street. workers were hanging chinese lanterns in the trees to celebrate the beginning of summer!

Stopped for lunch. Not too clean, mediocre lunch. Chicken wrap with canned chicken. Just not good. Hamburger on white bun, just plain uninteresting and tasteless.

Not fancy just good food. Greg place for an outstanding burger, fries and a cold beer. Had the jalapeño and wife had the mushroom burger. Very casual, dog friendly. Would like to try one of their wraps, but all as we had to move on.

It was no balls and two strikes and we were down to our last out. My wife and I were camping at Limeklin Campground in Big Sur and decided to make the hour and a half trip to Monterrey to see the oldest operating light house on the West Coast at Los Pinos. We ventured into the quaint town of... More

I had been to this place several years ago and wanted to return. It was just as good as I remembered. The staff was friendly. The food was great. We ended up going back a second time and trying something different. It's easy to find and you can either eat inside or on the patio or take it out and... More
