The food is good, not spectacular. You come here for the beautiful view of the harbor with a great outdoor terrace that is packed from May to September and every weekend in between. We always come early for the Happy Hour and often stay on Friday or Saturday night for the music. It is a great place to just hang... More

On Dana Point, wine, beers, mixed drinks along with sandwiches, salads and fresh fish. The Nacho Grande was just right for a late afternoon snack while watching the boats. Very good wait staff.

I think every table in the restaurant has a view of the water. The view is more of the channel than the wide open ocean but it is nice to watch the boats come in. The food was great and so was the service.

This is the place to come if you want great views. We sat as a group on the patio and had happy hour- The Sliders are to die for- I liked the teriyaki sliders and others like the pulled pork. Drinks are very reasonable and you are right on the ocean- who could ask for better! Oh and the service... More

We sat outside on the patio and you cannot beat the view of the harbor! We had to wait about 15 minutes or so and it was worth it! We caught happy hour and some locals talked us into trying their signature Mai Tai. OMG delicious! We have searched many places in Hawaii and Florida for a great one and... More

This restaurant is average. The menu is very basic. The atmosphere is nice and overlooks the harbor. Nothing really stood out at this restaurant to me. The food was average and a little pricey. I guess your paying for the view. Our waitress was very nice and welcoming. If you eat here request a table with a harbor view. I... More

Spent a lovely couple of hours at Dana Point and finished up having lunch at this seaside restaurant. We all had something different, including fish and chips, salad and a teriyaki chicken. All meals were great, service good and prices reasonable for the area. Will definitely go back

I've been here many times with various family memebers for years and always found it to be perfect for its view, relaxed, no-rush atmosphere, excellent servce ( the waiters and waitresses are always delightful and courteous) and of course amazing seafood. My mom and aunt love the salmon dishes and garlic mashed potatoes and I usually get mahi-mahi - either... More
