Description: The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and decor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side. Check out our website at www.miramarbeachrestaurant.com.

The fish is fresh, cooked to your choice, and presented nicely. The Sourdough bread and butter are as good as San Fran, but the best part of this experience is the great view... inside and out.

Today my friend and I had lunch at the Miramar Beach Restaurant in Half Moon Bay, California.The only thing this restaurant has going for itself is the ocean view. We each ordered a cup of clam chowder for $6.95. My friend ordered the crusted sautéed calamari steak for $19.95. It came with vegetables, and a choice of fries, cole slaw,... More

We decided to try this restaurant based on reviews. We made reservations and glad we did, we still had to wait half an hour for our table. We tried the cheesy garlic bread everyone raves about. Maybe it was an off night but it was dry and without flavor. It was Thursday night special night so I chose the special... More

Oceanfront dining, great quality seafood from a high-end local vendor, yummy pasta dishes, fresh salads and other well prepared dishes from the kitchen. Thursday Night Specials that pack the place with locals and travellers, so reservations recommended! Dog-friendly patio,too. Try the grilled Salmon ( med-rare) on their Caesar and you'll go back for more.

Very good setting right on the bay. Good and fresh seafood. Service was excellent. Chowder was good and were all the seafood we tried. We stayed at the Cypress Bay Inn down the street, easy waling distance and ate there several times.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Miramar Beach last weekend. It was EXCELLENT! The view of the ocean was just nice, but what made this restaurant amazing was the food, the ambience, and the service. It was the most perfect combination of elegant and casual. The service was friendly and top notch. I highly recommend this... More

Menu offered a nice variety. Casual atmosphere. Menu was an average pricing of CA oceanside venues. Food was very good. Outdoor seating available.

Expected better given that we were right on the ocean. It is a beautiful view, and the food is decent, but I just thought it would be better. If you want a lot of food, their portions are huge.
