“Awesome Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Took my family here last Thursday. View was fabulous. Service was Fantastic. Decor wasn't anything to write home about but with the Pacific Ocean right outside why would they even try to compete. Breakfast was very good. They are very flexible and allow changes to orders.
VERY REASONABLE!

Of course the view is wonderful but the food and service certainly matched the view. We had 2 wonderful dinners here.

“Mission Beach/Pacific Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

It's right on the beach. It has simple decor, on the noisy side. Service was good, food was even better. I highly recommend the lobster tail, heavenly! Would definitely go back

“Fish and Chicks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Very good and inexpensive for a touristy looking place right on Pacific Beach. The lobster tacos and calamari strips were delicious. The bloody mary was good too, nice and spicy and my gf enjoyed the lemonade-vodka drink special. The salads and sandwiches looked awesome too. Oh, and the view... PB is where the pretty people are. Enjoy!

“Raucous with Great Food. (But noisy too.)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stopped in on a Wednesday night. The place was packed. Very festive restaurant and bar scene. Faces the beach with large windows. Noisy too. This is not the place to come to for a quiet dinner.
My wife and I shared two excellent dishes. (Seems impossible these days to eat the mammoth sized meals served in most restaurants. I don't understand how people do it.)

We had the jumbo shrimp appetizer perfectly prepared with the shrimp laid out on a bed of greens with a sweet/spices dressing. We shared a fantastic clam sauce pasta dish that came with a good side salad. The food came with a basket of crusty bread, I suspect baked on-sight.

Service too was excellent. We had a long night drive ahead and I requested quick service which was exactly what we got. Wish we had time to walk the beach afterward. Seemed it would be a great thing to have done.

Go with friends, have a great time.
