We were very disappointed on this visit. The restaurant was so hot and stuffy. Had already ordered and paid and had a thirty minute wait, so leaving wasn't an option. Felt like there was no air running. By the time our food arrived we had little appetite due to being so hot and uncomfortable. The soda machines were not working... More

The kids and I popped in for a quick bite to eat. The atmosphere was average, the wait staff ok and the food forgettable. They were handing out free sticks, which the kids did like. The night we were there, they had a band that did a nice job with a few Johnny Cash songs. However, when giving a restaurant... More

I stopped here for lunch after going to the beach with a friend. It is a great atmosphere for a meal after the beach and the fish tacos were great. I got the Surf Taco Baja style and a mahi mahi taco. The food is a fair price for lunch and it was very fresh and tasty. I would definitely... More

Surf Taco belmar is consistent. The food is delicious, I recommend the Aloha Terry Chicken bowl with Avocado. The surf vibe is authentic and the staff is supers friendly and chill. Great place to go with a family, especially with young kids. They have more than just tacos and Mexican food, chicken fingers and kids meals are great.

Lots of great food at Surf Taco. A Downtown Belmar Staple recommended to me by a friend. Can't wait to go back and have more tacos.

We all have the taco salad in the fried taco. Really really tasty with guacamole, black beans and rice in addition to the salad. Add more pico de gallo and have a terrific salad for $7.95. My seating outside in the lovely quiet town.

Always loved Surf Taco. The food was always fresh and delicious but we went there late Saturday night to the Belmar Surf Taco and the food tasted stale. My wife ordered a salmon salad with spinach which she ordered before and she loved it. However this time the salmon tasted like it was stale. Like it was in the fridge... More
