This has been a long time favorite, I will say the visit in the evening is really the best, can be fun and maybe a little romantic at the right times.

At an instant, you will know that Moss Beach Distillery is known for its views of the Pacific Ocean. But the food is also very good. Our party sampled pulled pork tacos, filet mignon, shrimp cocktail, fettuccine with sliced beef, and bread pudding. Our entire table was well presented and the food quite good. Going to a distillery the expectations... More

We arrived early for our reservation, and were immediately seated with an ocean view. The view is amazing, service very attentive, and food was incredible. (Try the Coquille de Mare. It's to die for) Our only regret...no sign of their resident ghost... the Blue Lady

Happy hours prices for food and drinks is great- and i got to try fried artichokes for the first time. Fire pits make it a very friendly (and dog-friendly) place, so we made new human and canine friends to pass the time. The bartender was very nice, and this will be a place to frequent when i visit my friend... More

We came across this place by accident. Decided to have lunch here but always wary as we are gluten free. They were more than happy to adjust the menu and made suggestions of swapping flour tortillas for corn. The food was amazing, very tasty. Competent waitress service. Happy and friendly staff. The views from here are incredible too.

We've visited the Distillery twice, both for lunch, most recently on the Saturday before Father's Day. Although we didn't have a reservation, my party of 11 including 5 children were seated right away in the bar area. We had views of the beach as well as the FIFA World Cup game on TV, haha. I was pleased to find a... More

A friend took us here otherwise we never would have found it! The view is second to none and the ambiance is amazing with fire pits. Lots of people bring their dogs. There are blankets to keep warm on chilly days. You can go inside and bring food out to the patio. The chicken sandwich was very good, but the... More

The views , whale watching, sitting casually watching life on the water is the draw for most people. The staff are friendly Only disappointment is over priced not so healthy food to take outside. There is better food upstairs inside

The Good is the View.. The Bad is the Food.. The Ugly is Decor..  Recommend to sit and eat outside finger food by fire.  Fathers Day Brunch was our occassion.

Remembering a pleasant meal here two years ago, we returned for a weekday lunch, only to be disappointed by the food, which seemed very over-priced for the quality. The fish tacos were very bland and colorless (although it was good to be able to have the fish grilled rather than fried, since so many of the entrees feature fried fish... More
