  • After touring the Castle, we wanted to make sure the Hearst Corporation wasn't going broke so we ate lunch at Sebastian's. not to be corny, but they serve Hearst Ranch raised beef. Only grass fed beef...  more »

  • To be honest, I was just slightly underwhelmed this second time we came to Sebastian's. The burgers are giant, pretty good, and made from beef at the nearby Hearst Ranch. The value was not there in my mind though. $13 for a burger, and if you want fries you gotta pay an extra $3 or something. However, the atmosphere is great. The place is right next to the ocean, the ranch where horses and cows are grazing, and the mountains, and it's some kind of historic general store building which is cool. Probably won't be back for another $50 bill on burgers, but if it's your first time and you're a tourist, you should at least give it a try.
  • Great little stop. The good comes quick and is surprisingly good. Will definitely stop here again.
  • Great place for a lunch stopover visit. Super veggie burger, but they have regular buyers as well.
  • If you are looking for a place that sell fresh good and delicious burgers + draft beers? This is the place you should visit if you are chilling at the castle
  • This was the best burger I have ever had - the beef was made from the cows walking on the pastures outside - you can't get more local than that. It also has a nice wine and feed shop - I would have liked a nice cup of coffee though

Where to stay in San Simeon

Deciding where to stay in San Simeon doesn't require a great deal of consideration. All motels, hotels, inns, and lodges are located along Route 1 in the community south of the castle along the coast. If these are full, head just south of San Simeon State Park, where a larger selection of bed and breakfasts line the coast on the northern edge of the town of Cambria.
