Went for happy hour on Friday night. Got there at 4:15 and it was super busy. The happy hour menu (drinks and food) has decent prices considering you are in Dana Point and on the water. if you get the nachos, order them dip style so you can put as much or as little on your nachos as you want...plus,...

This harbor restaurant was just okay for lunch. Wait staff very good. Disappointed in food quality. Fish and Chips: Mahi Mahi not a good choice for f and c, dry and tasteless, beer batter tasteless, cold slaw tasteless. Other food ordered was just okay. Next tim we will find another place in Dana Point for lunch.

eat on the patio, not inside. Go at sunset. It's fun to watch the boats come and go tthrough the jetty. The fish entrees were remarkably good. I didn't like the mixed drinks especially.

After whale watching boat tour, stopped in at Wind and Sea for lunch. Food: fish and chips - Mahi very dry and tasteless, beerbattered coating no taste, cole slaw tasteless. Salad just okay. Service was good. Prices a bit high for lunch. Would find another place for lunch next time.

This New York reviewer would willingly have a place as nice as this nearby anytime. Good service, ability to seat up to 500 people if things get busy, this was a fine place for lunch on the water. Good food, very attentive service, clientele specific to the menu, this was certainly a fine place for a family meal.

Good bread, tasty pork BBQ, OK salmon. The flame-broiled artichoke was really nice. Nice view of the harbor. Outside dining available. BIG sodas. OK service. Not outrageously priced for this part of the world.

My wife and I had lunch at around 1 p.m. and the patio area was full. We went to the bar and had a drink and were called to a table in about 15 minutes. The table was facing a channel in the harbor and it was a great treat to see different boats and two porpoises. My wife ordered... More
