Went there with family this weekend. Waterfront restaurant, service was great and a nice selection for the Buffet Brunch. Loco Moco, made to order eggs and waffles, Bacon, Sausage, Biscuits and Gravy, fresh fruit and pastries. Good value for $16 per person, does not include a drink.

To get to the restaurant, outside dining an arrow points you to a lane to the left of the entrance, but once there you find great accommodations for dining outside by the marina. The wait staff is friendly,but from there it is a downhill experience. There were 4 of us and we ordered drinks and lunch Two of us ordered... More

Great service and absolutely fabulous food. Lovely view of Dana Point marina. Drawback--the dining room doesn't open until 5 PM, so we had to eat in the sports bar. For us, the noise from the TV's and loud music detracted from the beauty of the setting.

The food was ok, the ambience is like your gramma's restaurant. we were a group 10 and it took about two hours to get fed. The view was nice, on the water at the marina and our loud party was not a problem. The fish was fresh.

A group of us meet here on Monday night for two hours. Appetizers are good but staff is great. Waitress takes care of and puts up with us old folks, manager is great too. AND, of course, the view is great too...

Wind & Sea has so-so food, but is a fantastic place for happy hour mai-tais while you watch the boats in the harbor on a sunny day. Their mai-tais are perfect, and for happy hour are very well-priced and VERY strong! The smoked fish appetizer is tasty but most of the rest of the food is only okay. But it's... More

This was really a nice lunch spot. There was no crowd, great appetizers and reasonable drinks. There are some shops near by if you want some souveniers and the location is right in the marina area if you enjoy boat watching. We had fun here, I hope that you will too!

Had dinner with two other couples last night. Most had the fresh fish specials, one a steak and another the fish and chips. They all said their dinners were excellent and with large portions. I had the Seafood Combination Dinner off the regular menu. It had 2 shrimp, 2 scallops and 2 thick pieces of unspecified fish, a large portion... More

SoCal is about hype yeah? Well not here. Here you'll find the locals knocking back the Mai Tais and chilling with great food and a great view. And so far from prices in Santa Monica or San Diego. A real find.

Six of us met there for Sunday brunch. The restaurant was hopping. As the inside tables had a long list of waiting customers, we went outside and sat on their shaded deck. We just had some casual dishes off the menu and everyone was happy. Their salad was beautiful and the soup was generous and hearty. Two of us had... More
