West End Bar & Grill

The West End Bar & Grill feels like a seaside California version of Cheers, the New England bar where “everybody knows your name.” Comfortable, fun, and easy to like, West End has served visitors and locals to Cambria’s West Village for over 30 years. This is a family restaurant, instantly recognizable outside by its sign with the marlin in a martini glass. Enjoy American favorites here like burgers, fish and chips, sandwiches, salads, steaks and more. Seafood, especially, holds pride of place here. West End makes a point of buying the freshest seafood possible for dishes like coconut shrimp, fried calamari, and steamed clams. New England Clam Chowder can be served in a cup or a bowl — or a sourdough bowl in classic San Francisco style. Other favorite bites include the house-smoked andouille sausage sandwich, the ribeye steak, and Gary’s Cajun Pasta with shrimp, sausage, and chipotle BBQ cream sauce. To drink alongside this gastropub cuisine, find over 15 beers on tap, including local favorites Firestone-Walker, Central Coast Brewing and Barrelhouse Brewing Company. Another 25  more beers are available in bottle, with heavy hitters like Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder making a regular appearance. You’ll also find local wines poured by the glass, in addition to cocktails from the full bar. West End Bar & Grill offers table seating beside a cozy fireplace, making the space feel more like a friend’s home than a restaurant. Catch the game on five screens, with NFL Ticket, NHL Center Ice and MLB Extra Innings streaming. This is a terrific spot to settle in for an afternoon or evening, with a beer, a burger, and the big game. Head to Cambria’s charming West Village and meet new friends at this sports bar where everybody will soon know your name.
