Neptune's Net enjoys an enviable location and publicity over the years. It had appeared in many Hollywood productions and was featured in Rachael Ray's $40 per Day book and show. I have been to Neptune's Net many times when I drive PCH between LA and Ventura County. The fish 'N chips are very good, but it is the setting across... More

Had the clam chowder bread bowl. Didn't see what was so great about it. Served nicely, but once I got my spoon into it, it turned out that it had only been a small portion of the bread torn out to accommodate the soup. And there wasn't that much soup put into the bowl either. Kind of a disappointment, really.... More

Neptune's Net is an awesome find on the Pacific Coast Highway! Riding from Ventura to Malibu this was the perfect place to stop and eat some great fried clams and drink some ice cold beer and the view of the Ocean is absolutely amazing!

While staying in Santa Monica we took a leisurely drive over to Malibu one afternoon on the PCH. We stopped off at Neptune's Net for a late lunch, and were pleased to see that there was not a crowd at that time of the day. We shared fish tacos that were delicious, and had a couple of beers. This place... More

If you really want to go to a place that's been in the movies, or you're a biker, or perhaps an owner of a car with an overly loud muffler, this is the place for you. The food is about the quality of a city diner. Nothing seemed overly fresh. The tables and chairs have seen a lot of use... More

Our friends took us there, they really love the burgers, and it's a famous spot around L.A. I've tried the veggie burger with fries and a good Californian IPA:) it's very cool to sit on the beach with delicious food and enjoy the sun set, but be careful when you run trough the highway, most drivers are polite and let...

This is exactly what it should be - tasty, fresh seafood prepared in a very classic way. Nothing frou-frou about the food or the decor. Great people watching and excellent food, what more could you want?
