Delightful place for lunch

Sitting by the window watching boats come and go and pelicans causing mischief, we had a delicious lunch. The variety of choices, fish, sandwiches, salads and burgers was broad and the prices reasonable for the location.

Very clean and nice. Has sort of a south Florida supper club vibe. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Food was good, nothing super special.

I went there after whale watching and it was great view and good food. I had clam chowder and it was a good choice after a cool ride. I will go back.

Went to Wind & Sea on Valentine's Day with my wonderful wife. We arrived at Dana Point at about 2:30 and had no idea where to go. Wind & Sea was recommended to us by our resort. They called and had reservations for 5:30 that evening. Food and service was outstanding and the view of the Harbor and the sunset... More

So much to offer. Great view. Love the outside deck. Best drinks in town. Mai Tais my personal limit 2 max! Great outside firepot for atmosphere outside. I love having dinner and sitting outside around the firepit for a cup of coffee or just more conversation.

Went here today for lunch with customers and had a good experience. I had Vegetable Casserole and it was good. The best part is the location and the view of the harbor. The service is prompt and friendly. I won't mind coming back if I am in the area.

Generally, I do not always expect great food at a restaurant that has a nice view or location. But in this case, this rule did not work out. We went with my wife and kids and everything was excellent. The restaurant is nicely located, most of the tables are at the windows or have good view of the marinas. The... More

Good lunch but a bit on the expensive side. Had the fish and chips. Great location with view of the harbor. Very friendly service. All in all, a nice place for lunch after the morning Captain Dave's Dolphin and Whale Safari trip (which was excellent).
