“Excellent food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

As a local, I would have to say this is the best restaurant view in Humboldt County. Come about an hour before sunset and you will not be disappointed as your dining experience carries over into the sunset. We enjoyed the halibut and big-eye tuna with the scallops as an appetizer. All of these were very good, borderline excellent. Pricey, but considering the view and the very good quality of the food it seems worth the occasional splurge. Service was very good to excellent as well.

“View and kind staff are icing on the cake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Best martini ever. Try their Happy Hour at the bar, with the sun setting over Moonstone Beach — always special.

“Pay for the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Great view, over-priced average food. We had the corner table which was touted to be the best view on the West Coast. Indeed it is a world class view. However, the food was disappointing from beginning to end.
