This is a nice restaurant on the ocean beach...the sand within reach from your table. It is really a nice setting if you are lucky enough to sit on the patio. Inside seating also available... read more

This is a nice restaurant on the ocean beach...the sand within reach from your table. It is really a nice setting if you are lucky enough to sit on the patio. Inside seating also available but not as dramatic. The well drinks are okay, but a Kendall Jackson will cost you $11, and a margarita $9...so it a bit price.... More

The only reason to frequent this restaurant is for the view - period. It sits right on the beach and you can have a meal with crashing waves - that's the good part. The downside is that the wait staff could care less if you're there - I mean seriously, care, less - so don't look to them to accomodate... More

before returning to the frozen tundra we call home in denver, we decided to explore the coast. we ended up in del mar, a town contagiously cute but likeable anyhow. we stumbled into poseidon because we had to be near the beach (a girlfriend thing). little did we know we would get beach, delicious food and meet a wonderful server...

Get there a little early and get the table you want. Our table was spectacular and the service was excellent, until the place got quite crowded for a Monday. Jake's next door is closed on Monday, so I guess the Poseidon picks up the slack. Had the opportunity to lunch at both of these restaurants within the same week due... More

Situated right on the beach, this restaurant has it all--great food, wonderful views and great service. Unlike most "on the beach" restaurants, this patio has many umbrella tables and seats a lot of people. Reservations cannot be made so if you want a beach front table, arrive early. For a $4 valet fee, you can park in their parking lot... More

We have been to Poseidon twice now, both really good visits. We had a table near the ocean and could almost touch the sand. Service was excellent, very attentive and taking time to help with the menu choices and wine etc. There were four of us and we all loved the seafood, opting for the swordfish special and wild salmon....

Been going here for 20 years or more...Kiyani served us at the bar today as well as Maddie and they were fabulous. It is mainly about the location and fish tacos...the one time a year to forget being a vegetarian....oh and did I mention the patio?

This is a show-stopping place to take our out of town guests. Never disappoints. Large and creative menu, well priced, fresh and beautifully prepared food. And the view just can't be beat. Service is always gracious and accommodating. Be brave and eat outside! If it's chilly there are nice heaters which staff will move around. Street parking can be a... More

The good was good and the service was good, but you come here for the amazing view. Had a work dinner here and we called days ahead to get a big table on the patio. Watched the sun disappear behind the ocean - then after dark they turn lights on the beach so you can still see the ocean at... More

My friend and I were treated like royalty here. Drinks are stiff, sunsets are amazing. All seats are full!!! If you see a gold Maybach in front, that's Where the party is.... Try the Chilean Sea Bass... It's the best I have ever had and the chowder too! I love this place and it's tucked away so frequented by lots... More
