“Happy,happy,happy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

We recenly had a great lunch at the Paradise Beach Grille. The guys had the halibut burger which they very much enjoyed, fries and slaw included. I had a bite and it was good, perfectly cooked and dressed. We highly recommend it. My friend and I shared the fish tacos and a crab louie. The portions were very large and typical for a beachside pub. Service was fast but not hurried and the atmosphere was fun and easy. Service, view and food all made us happy, happy, happy.

“Spectacular View, OK Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

I enjoyed my shrimp louis, but it is not the best I've eaten. (The Fish Market has better). My friends ordered the specials and seemed pleased with them.
Service was good. Prices are high.

“Beautiful setting, lovely food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We recently visited Capitola and were take to this superb waterfront restaurant by close friends. The wait-staff was superb, and the food was quite delicious. We never felt hurried, and we spent a very enjoyable evening in this cute beach community.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

We went to the Paradise Beach Grille on our first visit to Capitola and didn't regret the choice. A nice spot located in Capitola Village by the water. It was too cold to sit outside but the inside of the restaurant was nicely decorated and pleasant. The wait staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had different salads and fish and everything was delicious. Would definitely recommend for a visit.
