First taste of California cuisine did not disappoint. Visiting family recommended this jewel of a place on the coast. Very busy on a Thursday lunch. Excellent calimari to start, crab cakes, and why not end with cheesecake. Can't wait to come back!

Gladstone's is a great place to bring visitors to the area. It's a nice casual seafood restaurant with a gorgeous view. Expect peanut shells on the floor, very good seafood, and a busy and fun atmosphere. Service is very good. Each visit is memorable.
