Location ! Location ! Location! It really doesn't get much better than this. This is right on the beach at Crystal Cove. You need to park across the road and take a mini-bus down for $1 so it's not possible to see the actual location from PCH. Good casual food with a laid back beach vibe that's slightly overpriced but it's totally about the view. Awesome place to catch the sunset over the blue waters of the Pacific.
Our bar service was friendly and attentive as was the service in the actual dining area. Food was tasty but we had a long wait and the entrees were miss timed. They must have forgotten mine or there was some kind of problem because when it finally came out it was nuclear... too hot to eat for several minutes.
I made mention of this to the dining manager when he stopped by the table and he apologized and then disappeared. The situation was ignored by him except the waitress who knew what had happened stepped up and offered a dessert gratis.
I would have no problem recommending the Beachcomber based on the overall experience. The location was very cool. I would advise you to arrive early and make a reservation if possible otherwise you should be prepared to wait as the restaurant has a very strong following.
