Lots of retirees, senior citizens. Seemed like a reasonable place for those sorts of folks. I did think the price of the food was a lot higher than the quality of the food.

The food was great each of the four times we ate here on this trip.
They’re sauces are delicious. We got fish, chicken, pork and burgers. All were cooked perfectly and had great flavors!

It was okay. The servers were very nice and the place has a laid back rustic vibe. But there was a strange mix in the decor like fresh flowers and plastic tablecloths. Weird. The food was inconsistent, too. My daughter had a ravioli dish that was almost inedible. I had an excellent starter salad with grapes and blue cheese followed by over cooked tuna that had a nice flavor but was dry and ... over cooked. The rest of the entrees were passable like home cooking but not the kind where you would say to the cook, "Wow, you should start a restaurant."

Travelzoo hotel package including dinner entree + a wine bottle for each room, a very good value and the hotel restaurant food is excellent. We order 4 different entree & they were all good or very good except the shrimp is on the salty side (filet mignon, scallop, halibut, ribeye + shrimp). The lodge garden is beautiful. Highly recommend this lodge & dining there.

What a fantastic experience! We came to the Central Coast to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday, and we were delighted with our night out at Cambria Pines Lodge. All courses were delicious, the waiter did a fine job, and the complimentary birthday dessert was excellent! Be sure to ask for it if you're celebrating a birthday.

I am mixed about our experience at the Lodge's dining room. We ate Christmas dinner and, without question, they are already renowned for their holiday ambiance. The four of us ordered prime rib dinners, the meat perfectly prepared. The green beans were simple and al dente. The mashed potatoes were average but not offensive. And speaking about offensive...there was no excuse for the poorly prepared Caesar Salad. The kitchen should consider first impressions. There is zero excuse for the shoddy effort in composing the Salad. Though the croutons were decent (using their leftover bread) the romaine was wilted and black on the edges. I am a Caesar expert. This is a pet peeve. If my family wasn't present, I'd have loudly complained. There was no effort to trip the top, limp and outside leaves. To make matters worse, the dressing wasn't balanced and the first Tate was acetic. I would expect this from a diner. However, the meat was excellent so I would return but with caution.

Service and food was excellent. Felt sorry for the waiter having to work on Christmas Eve but it was good for us. We have eaten here before and always had a great experience. We are from Bakersfield but have a home in Cambria and it's nice to have a place when people come to visit us when we are here.

The food is always good. But our waiter seem to be preoccupied. Although it was a moo and they were not busy by any means. The salad I wanted it wasn't offered because they didn't have candied walnuts available, so I requested Brussels sprouts, they didn't have them either, at the waiter didn't advise me until he serve my entrée.

The food was the star for me at the Cambria Pines. I had the crab cakes appetizer, served as 3 balls of crab cakes on a tasty aioli drizzle. The were tasty but more on the "cake" side than the crab side - almost like crab hush puppies. I then enjoyed their NY strip was cooked as I ordered it - medium rare.. The side of green beans was freshly prepared and al dente. The choice of central coast wines was good. The atmosphere was pretty basic and quite loud in the main dining room. The fireplace bar area looked like a fun place for the young at heart.

The food was very good, and our waiter was attentive. We were, however, very disappointed in the fact that the fireplace was not "turned on." I had made the reservations a month ago, on Open Table, requesting to be seated, by the fireplace. Your reservation stated that request, and I reminded them, both on the phone and as we were being seated. We got there an hour early, to make sure that the room wasn't filled up. They tried to seat us in a different room, after all of my reminders. I, again, had to go to the desk, and tell them that a month ago, I had made the reservations, through Open Table, requesting the room with the fireplace. They, then, moved us, but the fireplace was never turned on! The room with cold. It was a major disappointment for us. We drove 350 miles to get there, for a special experience. Next time, we will go elsewhere. J. Andre'

We went there for Thanksgiving Dinner. The Buffett was delightful and everything was so delicious. I usually don’t like buffets as the food isn’t hot enough. I was very happy that everything was warm and not dried out. The perfect ambiance for a Thanksgiving dinner.

This was a thanksgiving buffet that was a cut above any other venue like it. Although the service was not great and the ambiance was less than we would have liked, there were eleven in our group and they had to put us in the banquet room with other bigger groups. THE FOOD MADE UP FOR THAT PLUS SOME! It was terrific

Food great, service terrible. When we got there there was a line out the door and the hostess was answering the phone rather than addressing in-person guests. They ran out of menus and turned away a party of four on the basis of space when there were 10+ fourtops open that did not fill up over the hour we were dining. Children kept running around the restaurant screaming which doesn’t uphold the “charming” or “romantic” vibe I read about before making reservations. The prices are astronomic for this level of service, but they get away with it because it’s a tourist town and there aren’t many other options. Do not recommend.
