We went for breakfast, on the recommendation of a couple of locals, very early for a holiday (7:45) and we weren't disappointed! Because of the time of day there was a beautiful mist and we were even treated to seeing dolphins rush across our stunning ocean view. The breakfast itself was also superb and good value given the location. Anyone... More

The location is unique on the beach at the surf. Along with the wonderful location is the food and service. I will certainly be going back soon.

We had an amazing dinner here last week. We were able to get a table for 8 outside and had an outstanding meal. The braised short ribs were delicious!

We dined at the Beachcomber when we were vacationing at the Marriott Vacation Club this summer. Since it is a local "institution", we felt we just had to try it and we were not disappointed. We were lucky enough to score one of the very little offered reservations, so there was no wait for our table, which was out on... More

This is a great place to go for lunch. Seating outside you are "on" the beach. The wait time can be long so I suggest going a little early. We arrived at 12 and had to wait 1 1/2 hours. If youre waiting try the calamari, it was great. Food is good, service is great, atmosphere is devine. You can... More

This place is very casual- it's literally on the beach and it's a west facing beach so the sun sets right in front of the restaurant. The food is good- not amazing - but definitely good enough for how amazing the view is. The downside is that it is pretty small and the wait can be unbearable to get a... More

I have breakfast with friends at the Beachcomber every few months, and as the other reviewers have mentioned it's a great location right on the sand with a pricy but good menu. It is a 5-10 minute paved walk from the parking lot through a tunnel, under Pacific Coast Highway, with validated 3 hour parking from the restaurant. My friend... More

This is a terrific place for Breakfast, Lunch or dinner if you are a flexible person willing to do a little work for an excellent view and good food for your enjoyment. The prices are what you would expect for a unique dining experience - a little high but well worth it. The food is very good and you will... More

Sit inside or out, but you get the ocean view either way! Food was great and you can't beat the location for beachfront dining. We went for lunch, but hear rave reviews for the breakfast served here. We plan to return!
