Description: In a world where landmarks are few and far between there is Gladstone's. Situated where Sunset Boulevard meets the Pacific Coast Highway, it's become a place of Southern California legend. One visit and you'll see why. Gladstones offers a menu plucked from the very ocean it overlooks, serving modern renditions of classic dishes as well as favorites from the land. In its typically relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, there's something to satisfy every palate. Whether you're at the raw bar, the lounge, the dining rooms or the grand patio overlooking the surf, it's commonly agreed there's no better place on the coast to enjoy fresh seafood, a Mai Tai or the most beautiful sunset views in SoCal. Book a reservation by phone or web or stop by and enjoy the experience.

Seems like Gladstones abounds with visitors. More so than the local crowd. It is located in a good place and is a fun place to eat. The facility is rather rustic and the menu is very basic. Good place to take visitors and it has a pretty nice view. Also a good place for kids.

The location is by far the best part of this Malibu landmark. There's nothing like hearing the waves crash on the beach as you eat.

The food isn't bad either - probably just not the best you've ever had.

Not to knock the restaurant but a good place to visit, nothing outstanding. The view is excellent, the atmosphere is the same. Abdolutely nothing wrong with the food or service, as it was very good, but nothing to rave about. There is a huge amount of competition, regarding eating establishments in the area, and everyone needs to find a twist to the norm.

Fun for a drink and a snack but very touristy and the food is only ok. Definitely not as good as it used to be. Great views of course and good service.
