“Good burgers, Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Visited Moss Beach Distillery in early March 2014. Was surprised how out of the way it was. It seemed like we were going down so many side streets just to get there. But it was worth it. The burgers were amazing. Even though it was really busy inside the restaurant, you could walk right through and out onto the patio to an empty table. The view from the patio is breathtaking. The one downfall is that you have to order at the bar and wait for the food to come to you (if you're eating outside). Still worth the wait for the food. You can even sit with your dog on the patio too. If you can find Moss Beach Distillery, you've hit pay dirt. Don't forget to try the fried pickles! Surprisingly good.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

I come here every year when I am in SF. The beer is good but the Coast sliders ae to die for! And if it is warm enough to sit outside in front of the fire pits then also your eyes will jave their part.

“Beautiful view, but disappointed in healthy choices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We stayed at Sea Glass Cottage, a 10 minute walk from the Distillery. The restaurant was recommended by the owners of the Cottage and we gratefully took their suggestion. Beautiful view and location on the cliff overlooking the ocean, but since we had just arrived I was looking so forward to a great seafood dish. The menu consists of fried everything. I ended up ordering fish tacos, which were very good, but it wasn't the dinner I'd had in mind. Even the appy's were fried or heavy - we ordered the spinach artichoke dip which was really very good, but it's not my preference for appetizers. There are lots of people who need to watch fat and cholesterol these days, and it would be great if restaurants added a few broiled or baked choices.

“Wait for a window seat. Well worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We had crab cakes, fish and chips and the hamburger plus drinks and sweet treats to finish it off. Very good food. Very good view. Nice place and attentive servers. They mixed up my order and sent garlic fries to the table with my burger in lieu of the ordered sweet potato fries but without hesitation, the server corrected it in no time flat. Fair prices and a GREAT SETTING!

“Haunting getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

My husband and I shared a stolen afternoon along the Pacific coast, a highlight of which was our late lunch at the historic Moss Beach Distillery. Everything about the spot was charming, from the drive to the view. Our meals were beautifully cooked and presented, piping hot, and enhanced by the scene of cliff and surf from our window-side table. The service was friendly and efficient. A very enjoyable spot that lives up to it's reputation. We would definitely return.
