Great view, bland food

I ate at Neptune's last year and the food was much better. My group of eight was underwhelmed by the food. I had fish tacos that were begging for some sort of seasoning. The highlight of my meal were the slices of fresh avocado. The view and atmosphere is always good at Neptune's, just don't expect... read more

Crowded and Fun... best way to describe the Net. Food, is so fresh and yummy (I always great peel and eat shrimp, and then fried food), and they now have one of my favorite beers on tap (805). Just a super relaxed, beech front, casual (went in my bathing suit) hang out with great food and people!

My husband and I were traveling up PCH and passed this little gem on the side of the road. So glad that we turned around and went back. Food was great. Sat outside on the picnic tables and enjoyed the ocean across the street and good food.

My son and I ate at this awesome setting. I had the breaded shrimp and calamari combination basket. The shrimp was good and the calamari was outstanding! The atmosphere was awesome situated across PCH1 from the Pacific Ocean. So many options and also a steamed side for those who don't want fried seafood.

Love this funky fish shack! We have been coming here for thirty years. Very little has changed except the price of the fresh fish and shellfish, which is pretty pricey. The fish and chips are good and fairly priced. Enjoy people watching on the outside deck. Food is fresh and good. We always bring out of towners here for a... More

Neptune's Net is a rustic restaurant & bar that can be a fun place to stop along Hwy-1, especially at sunset. It's actually a bit of a dive, complete with porta-potties out back. It has a Malibu address, but it feels more like Nowheresville -- sitting all by itself about halfway from Malibu to Port Hueneme. It's in a great... More

Come with a lot of patience & manners; it's first come, first serve on the tables, so split up & someone get in line & someone scout for tables. The clientele is very polite; once you stake out a table that is nearly finished, no one will poach your territory as long as you are there. Fish & chips were... More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday while on a drive up the PCH. No sign of any bikers while we were there and the place was relatively uncrowded. The view from the porch was great! Ordering was simple like any fast food place. Our food came out in 10 minutes or less. We all had fried fish, clam... More

We drove out the PCH after visiting the Getty Villa. We shared a Sampler Platter and Clam Chowder. It filled three of us. The Crab cake was loaded with crab. Calamari was good and fresh. Soup was hot and thick. Lot's a noisy bikers but that kind of added to the atmosphere. This was fun and good in a greasy,... More
