We visited Longboard's last Friday night while in town for our college reunion. Some friends gathered outside late at night to catch up and enjoy drinks and dessert. The cookie monster is always a sure fire hit and they have great drinks. We all visited outside for hours and were not rushed out of there - even when the server... More

We stopped in on Sunday for a drink and a bite to eat. A nice place to get a drink, relax and watch the game.

Can't beat the view from the upper deck of Longboard's. Glass windbreaks do their job and the fried food is standard fare with your cocktail or beer. Worth the ride out on one of California's last remaining wooden piers. Valet parking is convenient and a serious dinner can be had below decks at the Harbor Restaurant.

We have been going to Longboards for years and the food has always been just ok (but the harbor view is outstanding). This time we walked in and the place was empty on a warm Sunday night. I wanted a simple mahi fish sandwich which they have had on the menu for years but is now not unavailable (the waiter... More

Stopped in midday on Thursday for a quick drink and view (which was spectacular). The Long Island Ice Tea was very pricey but huge and "Powerful"....we left happy. Recommend the Longboard Grill....wait young lady was great.

we stopped here for a drink while enjoying the pier. Service was attentive. Our waitress had to explain to a foreign traveler that they were tipping her too much. She could have easily pocketed the money, we admired her for her honesty and tipped her well.

This place is charming. Nice staff and stunning views. Unfortunatelly, it's very expensive for what you get. The food was good, but paying 40 bucks for one beer and fish & chips is quite much. But sitting and watching surfers in the harbor is nice!

Longboards offers a view that you cant beat for a dining experience. Unfortunately, the food here is downright bad (and WAY overpriced). Total tourist trap. Service was good though, and the tequila oyster shooter ($10) was good. Walk further down the pier and youll find a better dining alternative!

Our server today, Casey, was great, I would have given her excellent but she couldn't tell me the brad of coffee, though se did ask... More
