"We stopped here on Monday, May 6, 2013, about 1pm. A quiet afternoon, with no large crowd. This gave us a relaxing atmosphere and great weather, with doors open with light breeze. The grounds around the building was well groomed and great for a walk. This is more of a destination and not just a ..."place to eat. My wife and I each had the soup & sandwich that was good.

"We've been visiting the area for thirty years and know almost every eating establishment. There are more expensive restaurants but we enjoy Cavalier. At our last stop we had a new waitress and she was as wonderful as those we've known before. The menu was varied as usual and ran the whole range o..."f prices. My wife and her friend split a meal. They even split a cup of soup much to their husbands' surprise! Yes, the waitress brought an extra cup. My friend had salmon and I had a Philly Steak sandwich. We were extremely happy with the service and their willingness to respond to our desires. In our week of vacation, we make sure Cavalier is always on our list.

"The food was, frankly, surprisingly good. So much so that we ate there on consecutive nights. And the pricing was pretty much on par with the local scene.
The decor is a bit dated, but that is pretty common in the area. A bit ironic given the splendor of Hearst Castle. But it is clean and comf..."ortable.
The biggest sticking point by far is the service. Maybe the tourists leave lousy tips making it hard to find quality staff, but we ate early and with a sparse crowd yet simple requests seemes to take a bit long.
One gal who refills water glasses needs a job far away from humans. She was there both nights and we thanked her every time she filled our glasses. We got a grunt in response. It was almost humorous. I did hear her speak to other staff so she is not mute. Oh well.
In any event, it was still worth the visit both times. The seafood medley was delightful. And while a tad slow, everything arrived warm and to order.
In all a good experience. A bit more trainin...
