Their signature drink, the Moonraker is the best moonshine martini i have ever had. The food is phenomenal with a wide variety of choices.The view you have as you sit elevated above the Pacific can not be beat. Whether is be sunshine or a stormy night the view the best. Hard to know if you should stare at the perfectly... More

Don't miss their Sunday Brunch. They have seating times at 10:00 and 12:00 and charge $44.95 per person, but it is well worth it. You will have a beautiful view of the ocean while you eat your one meal for the day (you won't need another). Feast on a wonderful Seafood buffet which includes Dungeness Crab Legs. They have plenty... More

Don't let Moonrakers' location next to a Best Western hotel deter you. It's a spacious resturaunt tiered on different levels, everyone sees the massive windows to the ocean. We got got up close and it's the widest ocean view we've seen anywhere. The waves here in Pacifica are massive, not too far from Maverick's just south a few miles. Oh... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants because it is right on the beach and the food is very good. The menu is varied so there is something for everyone's palate. You get an oceanside view at every seating. The bar and lounge is very nice as well. It is a bit pricey but what you get is well worth... More

I had a cocktail, glass of wine, salad and an entree and it cost $70 (before tip). I got filet of sole, so nothing overboard. Nice view, but the too pricey for the quality of food.

Could have been what I ordered, but my meal seemed over price for the small amount of food I ordered. As with many more sophisticated places, the food was elegantly arranged and pleasing to the eye. However, the taste was bland. My scallops were not well-seasoned, did not go well over sweet potatoes, and the portion was small for the... More

Steamers and oysters with a great view. I've been here in the past and love the location. The giant glass windows make it seam as if the waves will come crashing in.
