“Mounted astride these ‘steeds’ are oysters clad in strips of darkly crisped hickory-smoked bacon, teetering with the obscene bravado one could only expect from the Lord of Darkness.”

“The Sea Chest has water views, knock-you-down-it’s-so-good seafood, and divine local wines. The sweet, plump Morro Bay oysters, with just a spritz of lemon, are addictively bracing. We fell for the sea bass, too.”


KSBY6 No Place Like Home: Sea Chest Restaurant

May 19th, 2011 

“There’s one spot that’s sure to be busy this weekend as people tour Paso Robles wine country then head for the coast. That is, if they’re in the know. Because anyone who is, knows there’s a sea chest of treasures to be found along Moonstone Beach come dinnertime. And it serves up all kinds of proof, there’s No Place Like Home.” -
Jeanette Trumpeter for KSBY 6

“They call it the Sea Chest and it’s full of treasures.   In fact is is one of the treasures of the central coast.   If you haven’t paid a visit to the seaside restaurant along Moonstone Beach in Cambria, you need to.   I mean, it’s just one of those “must dos” for locals and tourists alike.   And it’s the subject of tonight’s No Place Like Home.”
