“Seafood on the Beach”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

We had both lunch and dinner at this restaurant during our trip to San Diego in September. We really enjoyed crab legs at dinner time. The menu was much better at dinner time. The lunch menu was more oriented toward the beachcomber during the day. But it is fun to watch the beachgoers from the patio dining. At dinner time, if you are lucky, you can see the sunset.

“GREAT DINING VIEWS”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Good food right on the boardwalk. You can enjoy passers by white dining in a friendly atmosphere. We were there for breakfast and had very good omelettes!

“Nice Atmosphere. Food doesn't live up.”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

It's right on the beach, so the views are spectacular. That's pretty much the end of it's greatness. The food wasn't horrible, just ordinary. The rice pilaf and veggies were well prepared. The shrimp wasn't bad, but dollar for dollar, Dallas has better seafood places 250 miles from the coast.

“Eat an omlet and watch the waves.”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

The Pacific Beach Board Walk is a laid back location for a stroll. Lots of college kids, bikinis, surfers and sail boats in the Pacific beyond the shore. Then stop for meal on the patio and continue to people watch. The food will leave you satisfied.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

All of the locals recommended this restaurant and all three of us were very disappointed. Cold baked potatoes, steaks were not very good and the sauteed mushrooms seemed to be canned. Service wasn't all that great either.
