“Delightful”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We walked to this restaurant to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset. We stayed for dinner. The weather was terrific for January, so we were especially lucky to be able to sit outside and watch the sunset. We threw a couple of curves at our waitress and she bounced right along with our relaxed approach to sunset! As the sun sank in the Pacific, the owner appeared on the patio offering blankets for all the observers...how nice is that?? Once the sun was down and we had finished our appetizer...yummy marsala sauteed mushrooms...we decided we wanted to stay and have a bite to eat. The wait staff was very cordial and the owners are so hands on. It was, as the title says...a delightful evening. I highly recommend a visit to the Moonstone.

“Wonderful view”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

A wonderful place to relax and sit on the patio for a full breakfast with complementary Mimosas. The wait staff was was wonderful. If staying on Moonstone Beach drive the restaurant is within walking from many of the motels.

“Beautiful view, food ok”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

One should definitely stop in for the view from the patio which is directly adjacent to the beach, but as far as expecting just as an out standing meal just won't happen. The food is only mediocre and the menu doesn't have too many choices. I did order their cheeseburger, which was pretty good, but my husband's fish tacos were less than impressive. My son's cheeseburger was over-cooked, but he was too hungry to send it back. All-in-all, it was just ok.

“Casual deliciousness”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The service at Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill is great. Prompt and friendly, what more could you want. The offer a great variety of seafood dishes, one of the best being their cioppino. They also have one of the best clam chowders I've tasted; not too heavy or overly creamy, lots of clams, just enough taters. Recently had their crabcakes which were also very good. Lovely oceanside views.

“The best BLT I've ever had!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

A great place for lunch on the ocean view patio. Breakfasts are great, too, but big enough to share!
