Welcome to Big Sur River Inn
Renew your spirit at the full service restaurant and bar at Big Sur River Inn. Enjoy a fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner in the historic dining room or outside on the deck, the lawn or along the bank of the Big Sur River. Have a seat on one of the bent willow chairs in the river and let the smooth current cool your feet as you enjoy the best Big Sur lunch around.

What sets us apart from other Big Sur restaurants is our 100-year-old tradition of locally grown fine food, friendly, efficient service and warm hospitality.

And yes, we still serve the original homesteader’s version of "Hot Apple Pie!"

"Kick start your morning at the Big Sur River Inn Restaurant with hearty home-cooked dishes like huevos rancheros, banana walnut pancakes and a redwood camp omelet. Want to drink your brunch instead? Order one of their famous Bloody Mary's and lounge in an Adirondack chair in the nearby Big Sur River. "

New York Times, Travel
"Popular with everyone from families to bikers, the River Inn is an unpretentious, rustic, down-home restaurant that has something for all tastes. Trying to seat a small army? No problem. Want to watch sports on TV at a local bar? Pull up a stool. Looking to snag a few rays from a deck right beside the Big Sur River? Break out the suntan lotion. In winter, the wooden dining room is the prime spot; on summer days, some folks grab their patio chairs and cocktails and hang out literally midstream. Along with the local color, attractions include a full bar and good ol' American breakfasts (steak and eggs, omelets, pancakes, and so on, plus espresso), lunches (an array of salads, sandwiches, and baby back ribs, or fish and chips), and dinners (fresh catch, pastas, burgers, or ribs). I usually order the Black Angus Burger with a side of beer-battered onion rings, or a big platter of the Roadhouse Ribs served with cowboy beans."
