We decided on this restaurant after reading a TripAdvisor review. It is a very casual restaurant but was busy so we were glad we made a reservation. The Mai Tai's were terrific, but be careful, ours were really strong, but just the way we like them. Our food was good, the seafood was fresh. The restaurant was a little dated... More

Both indoor and outdoor seating are available, but the outdoor seating is very tight. Dinner was very good (though pricey), and we enjoyed watching the July 4th fireworks out the window as we finished our meal. Reservations are needed during busy season, but the location is great with nice views of the boat traffic.

Love coming here for ambiance and great happy hour food. Mai Tais are still great, but far less alcoholic than they were.... Also getting pricey!

Our company had a dinner here this past week and the wait staff did an amazing job taking care of us. Always checking on our needs, drinks were kept full, food was served hot and views were great. The stuffed halibut was one of the top 5 meals I have ever had, simply amazing. Great flavor, nice size portion and... More

We went to Wind and Sea for dinner on a Saturday night. They were busy but we were able to get seated on the deck right away, which was lovely watching the boats go by. They had heaters on the deck to take away the chill… But that was about the best of it…it took a long time to have... More

I spent a week in Dana Point, CA last week and ate at this restaurant three times...the outdoor seating overlooks the harbor. Never did sit inside. The ceviche is excellent. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Everyone I took there enjoyed it. Will be back on my next trip to So Cal.

Total of six in our group for a late lunch on a Saturday. Place was busy, but the wait wasn't too long. Views of the harbor are fantastic. The food & service was top-notch. The Mai Tai's are delicious, but be careful as they're strong.

Great location, perfect location, gorgeous table over looking the marina . Great service, fun atmosphere, great vibe. Casual business inside the restaurant and casual on the patio over looking the ocean. Food was OK. Coleslaw was warm, not good. Location, location, location! Great Sunday Brunch. I had the Mahi Mahi fish & chips. My Husband had Chicken Club, great. Smells... More
