We enjoyed Sunday brunch here after watching old surfer dudes at Salt Creek Beach. Sat at the bar and enjoyed unlimited champaign for $9. Our bartender, Carlos, was attentive and recommended the ribs, which were awesome!

Everything we ordered was delicious. From burgers to steaks and fish. We had a big group of family, most didn't speak English, and our server was amazingly helpful and gracious. I've been here multiple times and each time I've been amazed at the level of service and the quality of food served. The drink menu is diverse and the bartenders... More

The Salt Creek Grille is a great venue to host a party, have dinner or to just to go to the Cheers bar. I have frequent this restaurant for more than 12 years. Excellent! Try the Ribs, Pork Chops or Coffee Encrusted Steak!

We spent a measly three days in Dana Point on business and aside from incredible views, this was a highlight of our trip. Impeccable service, a meal that was to die for (if you don't get the chocolate ganache soufflé for dessert, you're missing out on one of life's greatest gifts), and great ambiance for a quiet evening out. Just... More

Stopped in for a early dinner. Seating wasn't very busy yet. The bar area was crowded and looked well stocked. Nice option area with seating. Interior was nice very open. Large menu selections both for drinks and food. Meal potions were large. Lime chicken tacos were very good. Service was good as well. Adequate parking and valet if needed.

The bar has live music and some nights dancing. Food from regular menu is served in bar with no waiting or reservations. Menu is varied and quality of food is very good. Servers and staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their menu. The salmon here is one of my favorites with all their salads being very fresh and tasty. The... More
