We stopped here because we saw their sign going to Moss Beach and we were hungry. Very good choice for us. The view is spectacular. Ocean, rocks, trees, etc. Great. The food is very good. We wanted just comfort food: burgers, tacos, salads, fries. They were all excellent. Not just filling but delicious as well. Definitely a place to try.

I really like this place. It is beautiful, the food is good, and it is even haunted! The story of the blue lady is very interesting. I like how the chandeliers kept swinging back and forth. My grinch of a husband said they were on a timer, but I'd like to believe it was her! Very cool place. Will go... More

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
