It's a 'landmark' thing where you have to try once...

Truthfully the food was average and I wish everything wasn't deep fried. I have to guess that the seafood was fresh since the establishment sits on the PCH but to me they rely on the fry and sauces instead of seasoning and flavor. It's a place I wanted to say I tried but I wouldn't make an effort... read more

I heard this is the place to go to for good seafood so I had high expectations. I ordered the fried shrimp and was underwhelmed. It was comparable to fried shrimp at a chain restaurant. The porch had a great view while the sun was setting. Wish it had been a bit cleaner though - there were several table that... More

Christmas day we joined the bikers and sea gulls to the fresh fish and a view of the Pacific Ocean. Not a place I would normally find or stop without some local help. It is worth it if you need some seafood.

I was visiting a friend in nearby Agoura Hills and she brought me up here for lunch one day since it's her favorite seafood spot. I highly suggest getting one of the fried sampler platters and sharing with your group so you get a bit of everything. The shrimp and the calamari we had were delicious but the clams stole... More

Near the Pacific Ocean with not much nearby except the water. Been at this location for many years. It is okay for the beach bunch to get something to eat. Gets very busy at times. Not fancy at all.

This is a roadside fish joint. It doesn't pretend to be anything else, and it does what it does very well. The fish is fresh and flavorful -- I had their beer-battered fish and chips, my husband had the fish tacos. Their ordering system is clearly explained, even for first-timers like us, and the beer selection (in coolers, self-serve) is... More

We stopped at Neptune's Net for lunch as we drove down PCH from Los Angeles. The ambience is beach shack bit the food is anything but. I had the crab cake burger which was delicious. Everything is counter service and they have a wide variety of beers, wines, sodas- just about anything you could want. Sit outside at the picnic... More

I don't remember how I learned of this place. A scene from one of the Fast and Furious movies was filmed here. I just started watching those movies. Had a heck of a time getting there as Highway 1 was closed north of the restaurant due to storm damage. I ordered the fried shrimp and calamari and it was really... More

Neptune's Net is one of the best fresh seafood places on the PCH in Malibu. Bikers, Celebrities, Musicians, Creatives, & Tourists frequent this restaurant. The food is delicious, and cooked to perfection. I had the best salmon at Neptune's Net. The menu has a wide variety of choices, and if you want to substitute for a healthier option, they will...
