Great location/view, very good service, OK food.
Te staff was friendly and accommodating to make sure we had a comfortable area where we could fit the baby pram, AND have a baby seat. We still had good views from the table, and in between the appetizers and main course could go out to the balcony to see the fabulous views (and they kept our food hot in the kitchen till we got back, having out the baby to sleep).
The food isn't bad, but keep in mind that you are paying for the location and views, rather than the cuisine.

Seldom have I ever had such good service. The waiter and manager were both absolutely present to deal with any issue without being in your face or trying to be your best friend.
As always, the food is fresh and well done. They have the formula for a great restaurant experience perfected

We sat outside - I love their patio. They had a happy hour going, which had good specials. We got the crab fritters, which were a special of the day, and they were amazing. I would highly recommend them! Every time we go we have to get the crab, avocado and mango stack. It is delish! We also got the spinach salad, but I was disappointed that they didn't toss it tableside this time like they have in the past. The lava cake for dessert was a great way to finish the meal. I would definitely recommend this place!

It's getting harder and harder to find restaurants in this chain as they dwindle in number. As we've come to expect, their tropical iced tea and salad bar are excellent. At this restaurant, the bread portions seem to have been reduced and there are few value priced choices on the dinner menu. Thank goodness they give a senior discount for AARP members!

Next time we may try the happy hour menu.

We ate in the bar area...right next to the windows.
You can see all of the Dana Point Marina.
A California experience.
