Neptune's is a must if you're driving the Pacific Coast Highway! Fried calamari and French fries? Sure- you can get that anywhere but.. Neptune's is a hangout.

I can't visit Malibu without making my way up the coast to Neptune's Net. It's one of my all time favorite spots in the world. I always have the steamed clams which are amazing, and I love the crab as well, if they have it. It's changed a bit over the years..from when you used to walk around the live... More

We wanted a casual fish restaurant close to the ocean and chose Neptune's Net despite a few mixed reviews, because of the great location on PCH. I assumed fish and chips would be a good, safe choice, The portion was a good size but instead of a nice flakey fish in a delicious batter, it was dry and dense. So... More

Thank you for your awesome review, 4everPaul. We have tried many times to have a intersection light installed at Yerba Buena and PCH. We will keep trying for you!! The cars drive too fast and we often encourage police units to ticket speeders. Hope to see you again! More

Great destination place at the far west end of Malibu where Mulholland Highway hits PCH. I love the fresh crab when that part of the restaurant is open and the fried shrimp and fries any other time. It can be real busy on weekends, but if you're patient you can usually get a table. Great place to people watch, directly... More

Stopped in here on our way up the coast to San Francisco. Had seen in a few movies, so we were curious. Food was very good, good portions and reasonable rate. Nice place to sit out on the patio to have a drink as well

Was taken here by US friend for good eating and sea views in Malibu. Very busy but fast service with inside and outside seating. Plenty of variety on menu board and great selection of bottled beers and soft drinks. Would not recommend the outside toilets - they are 6 portaloos in a shed and are grose - maybe they are... More

Thank you so much for your honest and important review, Bluemtns2777. We will work very hard to keep our port-o-potties as clean as possible. We have hired a full-time restroom attendant and hopefully, you will stop by again and have a better experience. Unfortunately, the County restrictions will not allow us to have "normal toilets." We will keep trying for... More

This is about as relaxed a place as I have ever eaten. You can see the ocean, the surfers, the other tourists and just feel......California. For a fast-food place, the fare was surprisingly good. Seating is at benches for the most part so don't be shy to share a table with strangers. They probably won't be by the time you... More

This place serves up great food. Not fancy in any way, but delicious nonetheless. View of Malibu Beach right across the road and all for around $12 for a basket. It is busy and you have to seat yourself. Suggest that you have someone in your party scout for a table while another heads to the counter to order. The... More

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 to stop... 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
