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.

I struggled with rating for this, mainly because of the crowd. The view was nice so book a time and table to see the sunset. Waiter was on top of things and very attentive and polite. The salmon with mango chutney and dill yogurt sauce was spectacular; this was a special that night so I suggest adding to the menu... More

I have been going to this restaurant since way back the 90's. And every year I celebrate special occasion at this restaurant and just enjoy the food and the view. Although the price range is quite expensive. In my surprise everything changed on my last visit there of March 21, 2014. The place it self did not change but the... More

With all the good restaurants in HMB(Barbara's Fish Trap, Catch JoAnns,etc.) why eat here. Horrible lobster roll sandwich, warm seafood chowder, mediocre calamari. Sorry but unless my husband and I want a cocktail after walking some evening we will not be back for what's on the menu. The outdoor area is fun to relax in with the beautiful surf as... More

Went with my Aunt Barbara and her friend, location is beautiful, right on the water. Someone was playing the piano, the bartenders were attentive and a lot of fun, great personalities! Burger was big and delicious. Just a wonderful time and I wish I was there now!

The Miramar has excellent seafood chowder the best I have had in a long time. Very rich and creamy! The food is good in general. The service is very good regardless how busy they are. The bartenders make some mean dellicious drinks!

Not a fancy restaurant which is what you should expect at the beach. Salmon was excellent, portions were big. Their sourdough bread was par for the area, not over the top good. Nice views of the ocean.

Came here for a Sunday Brunch after a big family wedding. We were seated right away but in a separate little room. After not brung acknowledged or able to get anyone's attention for 15 min, I asked the hostess for a server. She sharply responded that our server is busy with a big table and will get to me when...

We stayed at the Cypress Inn down the street and walked here on our honeymoon. I ordered a new York strip with a parmesan glaze and it was cooked to perfection. Really one of the best meals I've ever had and the view right on the ocean was perfect. If you are around this area, try this place!
