Went for lunch - good halfway meeting spot for those coming from San Diego to meet up w/those from LA area. Had the calamari strips for appetizer - best I've ever had. Comes with two different and good dipping sauces, and calamari was lightly breaded and fried. Very tasty. Window booths offer good views of the numerous sail boats and... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a hotel employee. It wasn't until I sat down and ordered that I started to look around and notice so many seniors around me. The muzac piped in were obviously geared for that crowd. This was probably one of the less impressive seafood restaurants that I've been to in Dana Point.

In the dinning are there is a great view. The bar has expanded, but the restaurant is still very dated and the bathrooms need major help... More

Fun place to come and relax and get a snack or dinner or just sit at the bar and get a cold drink. After dinner, walk out the door and go for a walk around the boats.

The best clam chowder I've ever had. The rest of the menu is fine, but the clam chowder is the main reason that I will return.

This place is PACKED for happy hour. Get there early, the retired crowd fills up the bar. Dinner is expensive and not worth the wait.

My husband and I went for Sunday brunch with another couple. We received our food and my husband's (filet mignon and eggs) breakfast was way below standard. He had to return it because the filet (if you want to call the cheap piece of meat a 'filet') was overcooked. The waiter took it back but the three of us had... More

We went for an early New Year's Eve dinner, and when we arrived at 5:45 the place was packed. Twenty minutes later, quite a few tables emptied and we were able to grab a window booth facing the harbor, which was nice. The waitstaff was terrific. It's just that the food was so average. The bread basket was exactly two... More
