Famous for being in Malibu with a following of bikers and tourists, which creates great beach atmosphere and fun. You will wait for a table. You will selfserve yourself with condiments and beverages. You will stand in line to order your food. But, nowhere else, will you enjoy telling your story about the time you went to Neptune's Net.....

The best kept secret in America. The food was amazing by the sea, top value for your money. Plus you get to see lots of bikers and surfers. I recommend the fish and chips all day every day.

I have vistied this place many times wtih my two young sons. We always enjoy the food. The environment is great, just right accross the street from the ocean. It's a casual spot for fresh seafood. Will continue to go back for many years to come.

The view from here is lovely, very beach vibe, but tried twice for seafood and disappointed both times. No clams when we tried the seafood side. Really? Thought this was the clam capital? Grilled shrimp tacos used teeny tiny shrimp, lackluster and tasteless. The upsides in addition to view? Very good cheeseburger, extensive beverage selection, nice staff and easy parking

The fish tacos are by far the best on the coast. My girlfriend had a cheeseburger with fries and it was delicious as well. By far one of the best kept secrets around Malibu. Friendly/ helpful staff and excellent customer service. We love Neptunes.

Cool place to see cool bikes on the weekends, but for fried seafood head down the coast and try Malibu Seafood instead.

Neptune's is a local stop where you can find a good burger, fried clams or seafood while cruising down the coast. Neptune's is a sit-down with views of the Pacific. Once a surfers and locals stop, it's a tourist and eclectic mix which is worth the stop. Where else can you eat with surfers, international tourist, locals, and bikers all... More

This is a self service restaurant, it offers nice breakfast and large variety of alcoholic drinks. I believe that it is nicer place to stop by during the summer as the place doesn't offer sea view from inside the restaurant.

I still enjoy going here; but miss the days where it was true beach people. Surfers and locals. Now that am a outsider since I moved the food is great but no one can turn the clock back to my days of Zero beach and the best breaks.

Driving down the coast today and came across this restaurant at lunch time. Service was fast and the food was good. Had the fish and chips and the two pieces of fish were big and the fries were good and hot. The best part was the view. For a sea coast town this was a nice casual place to eat.
