Attentive, friendly service. AVOID the fish and chips if you are an aficionado as their magi magi breaded (not battered) fish is not a good substitute for the real thing! Their chips are nice. Nachos were a bile pile of chips overdone with jalapeños, and no cheddar cheese. On the bland side. For the quality of food and drinks, we found it to be expensive. We did love our server, however, he was friendly, funny and quick with what we ordered.

Second time lunching at Longboard's Grill this winter. You can't beat the pier location, which drew us to this restaurant both times. Once the car is parked far, far away and you are strolling, when lunch time hits, food must be found. Longboard's has readily available seating on the weekends and an awesome view from the roof of The Harbor Restaurant on Sterns Wharf in SB.

Service here was great. Food was average. Be prepared, for lunch, to spend $20 per person if you are getting food and a non-alcoholic drink. After tax and tip, add another 25 percent. You'll be out the door for $50 for two. That being said, it is a great location -- bring your sunscreen and a hat! They pretty much keep the pigeons away.

Family friendly, they do have a kids menu, I think. If you are out at the pier, this is a nice place to rest and enjoy a meal. Recommend fish and chips (really?!), wedge salad, fish tacos. The cocktails looked awesome and it probably has a killer sunset view.

More than just a place to get a burger, Longboards is well suited for the college aged beach-going crowd, but can accommodate families, too. The decor is surf-based, and the theme carries through, but there are delicious items on the menu--we usually split the fish and chips for our younger grandchildren. No 'library voice' necessary here, it's rowdy, and there's a great view of the city and the harbor, with lots of action taking place as boats pass by alongside the pier.

Upstairs at the Harbor House, the closest restaurant on the wharf, Longboards offers a view of water on 3 sides. The food is disappointing, but not the view. Good for families, sunset dining or those looking to get their drink on.
