With some restaurants on the water is it strictly about the location to get them by. Not here (although the view from the dining room - any table - is fantastic). The service was very good and the seafood was fresh with generous portions, reasonably...More

Big group (8) of us went and enjoyed lunch. Book a table and avoid prime time as parking can be tough.

The restaurant itself had very friendly staff, big space, great views. The menu itself was odd - was expecting more seafood options. Happy hour is only in the lounge which kind of sucked. Its also quite expensive.

Thursdays they have a $20 fixed price item. When we went it was a Capri salad, a Parmesan cheese crusted scallops on scalloped potatoes, with Pumpkin Gelato for dessert. We also decided to order two appetizers. Our server came and put our two appetizers down...More

Nestled between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz this is the perfect lunch spot. Right on the beach and you can watch the water and the food was excellent too. We ate seafood chowder followed by a lobster roll and Mahi Mahi tacos. All washed...More

The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and decor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side.
