We have been to the OC Surf Cafe a few times now. Our first visit, they were crazily understaffed for the number of people in the restaurant. We waited over an hour for our food, were missing flatware, and were generally unattended until the end of the meal. Our waitress, Lindsey( I think that was her name), was amazing under the circumstances. She apologized repeatedly and handled the chaos with grace considering she was the sole server for nearly a full house. The food was delicious, including the crab omelette, french toast, and fruit plate. The food and Lindsey, were the reasons we decided to try it again. Since then, we've had good service, very good food, and have never had to wait as long as we did the first time. Also, I had been craving tacos since Pure Tacos left town. The blackened Mahi Mahi tacos were great!

Had a high rating so we decided to try it. Decor was nice. Basic breakfast was not impressed. Ordered fruit cup but it wasn't the sweetest. This should have not been rated as high as it was.

Just left this restaurant and we were far from impressed. The decor was very nice and the restaurant was comfortable. However, it took a very long time to get items that we asked for even though there were not at all busy and the food was only so-so. Stay away from the chili unless you like super spicy foods. I ordered the chili for my 2-year old...told the waitress that it was for my little guy and when he took a bite he started crying. You would think the waitress might have mentioned that the chili was so spicy when I said it was for a toddler.
