Rode our bicycles here for lunch on Saturday. My wife ordered the 8oz burger & I got the fish tacos. The burger looked very good & was accompanied by some really good fries (although not fresh cut). The fish tacos were very good & had plenty of fish. The rice & beans finished out the plate and made for plenty of food for lunch.

We also had a mojito & bloody mary that were excellent as well. We will eat here again when friends come to visit. The restaurant is right on the boardwalk which makes for fun people watching. Love Pacific Beach!

Good food! I had the lobster bisque and prime rib. The scallops for an appetizer were delicious. Great place to eat on the beach.

This is a nice restaurant with good service. We ordered the paper wrapped sea bass and steak and scampi. Both come with vegetables and a salad. If you pick clam chowder they charge $2.25 extra for a tiny amount of soup. It had lots of bell pepper which over powered the taste of the clam chowder and made it spicy. I did not like the soup and don't like the fact that even though I didn't get a salad and still had to pay extra for the soup. It came in a big bowl which has a very tiny portion of soup in it. I suggest getting the salad not the soup. We shared the praline bread pudding which was very good. $64.00 not including the tip. Use the valet parking $5.00 for two hours. The view is nice. Food would not bring me back. It's just ok

We went here twice during our stay & loved it both times. It is located right on the strand with great views of the beach. Very cute decor & friendly servers. We sat in the bar one night & shared steamed clams, bread & some wine. The place was packed (with a wait) on a Thursday night. We liked it so much that we went back next morning for breakfast. Sat on patio looking at ocean. Everything we ate was delicious. Looking forward to going back.
