I stumbled upon this walk in to order grill. Food looked good. I ordered a beer, and then was given a buzzer for the food order. I walked out to the dining area, and what a surprise!!! A lovely lawn with tables, a sand box/play area for kids, and a large fire pit area above the lawn. I chose to... More

Passed this numerous times over the years and since it was 12:30 we decided to stop in. Pros: Building and grounds were clean and well maintained; the food (Grilled fish tacos, ahi sandwich, sweet potato fries and wine) all was well prepared and nice portions; the use of pagers to tell you when your order was ready for pick up...

I had my very own 21st birthday dinner here. We invited friends, family, more friends of my family etc and it was great place to be able to invite a large amount of people, not have to pick a restaurant for everyone to agree on and to make a head count for the seats and tables. People showed up, grabbed... More

My LD and I stopped here for lunch on our way up to Santa Barbara. Easy off and on the 101. We ordered and then sat outside in their lovely grass area which had tables with umbrellas. The grounds were very clean and spacious with a play area for kids. My LD had the chicken sandwich with fries which was... More

A place I had wanted to go to see what all the "fuss" was about and finally made it there in mid-March2014,, with 3 girlfriends. It was everything we wanted......right on the beach, great patio, well prepared food and outstand service, even though they were extremely busy.

I am a big fan on many levels: love the area with one of the nicest clean and quiet beaches, enjoy the relaxed ambience. It's well-managed, and offers an extensive sandwich/salad /sides selection, tasty, and consistently prepared- albeit, pricier than average. This is a place that I love to recommend to friends. Great for all ages. There is a sand... More

Great location at the beach. A large garden with many picnic tables and umbrellas, as well as a firepit, a pond, and a sandpit for the kids. You order your burger, fish, etc and are given a WiFi calling device. The food was great! We saw dolphins passing very close in to the beach.

We stopped by for lunch. It was super crowded which is usually a good sign! A gal in line recommended the Cobb salad. Another guy recommended the California Club sandwich. So we ordered both! The salad was delicious! The sandwich was really good too! We loved the atmosphere. Very beautiful park like setting on the beach.

This is a casual dining place that works well for families. You place your order at a counter and then go out into a grassy outdoor are with round tables. There are umbrellas to provide shade if you don't want to sit in the sun, but it doesn't cover all the seating at the table. There is a sandbox for... More

Wow! What a cool place to hang out and enjoy a delicious lunch. You can't really tell from the outside how cool this place is but once you walk in the front door and see the huge counter with the menu in great view a top it's easy to order, pay and then go out to the picnic like area... More
