Description: The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and decor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side. Check out our website at www.miramarbeachrestaurant.com.

“Beautiful sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Right on the water, the restaurant offers tables turned to be able to enjoy the sunset as you eat a wonderful dinner! The service was great and we bought a hoodie to promote the place in Dallas, Texas! Be sure to read the back of the menu. There is some interesting history to the place!

“Special Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I've come here with friends regularly and I've never been disappointed. Whether in grey weather or in spring sunshine, it's a great place to have lunch, brunch or mid-afternoon sandwiches. The service is friendly and efficient without being intrusive, the food is delicious, and the ambience is comfortable and elegant without being stiff. The live music (British rock jazz piano player Terry Disley) is kept low at a very pleasant volume and allows guests to have continue their conversations and listen at the same time. I recommend this place to all my visitors and friends.

“Great Lunch Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Super view. Food was very good. The Seafood Chowder was awesome. Staff was attentive but not bothersome. Highly recommend.

We live nearby and dine here often. Great views and great service. The food has improved a ton over the years. Whatever they are doing, keep it up!

“Good location marred by mediocre food and slow service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Food was bland and unexciting, service extra-ordinarily slow. Copious, empty, valet parking and little else. Probably a tourist magnet - could do SO much better!
