Great food and service. Unique dishes. Bar terrific. Fish tacos and Thai linguini wonderful. Try the spinach and artichoke dip appetizer.

I recommend the spinach and artichoke dip appetizer, delicious! Went for an early dinner with my husband and daughter, a really enjoyable experience. I wish the weather had cooperated so we could have sat outside. Excellent friendly service, great meal choices, including gluten free options and gluten free modified options. The teriyaki chicken gluten free modified option was lacking taste... More

Enjoyed our dinner very much! We did not realize that they did not open until 5:30PM, we walked in about 5:10. They were quick to react to us and provided excellent service for our entire dinner! The food was well prepared and the menu is creative. The bread served with dinner was some of the best I have had anywhere!... More

Trying to find a place for two couples where there was something for everything and gluten free options. The menu had a little bit of everything and the dishes looked great. There were lots of options for vegan and gluten free diets. The prices were definitely a bit high though. I ordered an appetizer that was unique and tasty, a... More

I love the 'Grill' and the large variety offered on the menu. Their salads are especially good and made just for you. There's also excellent seafood, pasta dishes, and their burgers are great. Slightly pricey but worth it!

Great food- veggies were perfectly done, which I rarely find. My hubby's steak was perfect! The atmosphere was lovely.

We often choose Malibu as the spot to go to when we have something to celebrate. It is a bit of a splurge but it never disappoints us. The food is always delicious and the venue is decorated on the higher end side of comfortable. Malibu contains lots of local memorabilia but does a good job to stay away from... More

We used Malibu for a large group of people. The service we received was very personal and the food was great! All of our guests raved about the variety of dishes and the quality of what they had to eat.

A friend and I meet monthly here for drinks and dinner. This is the only bar in town that has bar tenders who can make traditional cocktails, like gin martinis and dry Rob Roys, without screwing up the ingredients. The food menu is fairly diversified and offers some vegetarian options, and the food is consistently of good quality.
