Located right on Moonstone Drive, it has a lovely view with a lot of outdoor seating. Although it wasn't very busy, we felt like everyone was in a rush. The crab cakes had too much crumb filler and the clam chowder was average. The 30...More

We've eaten here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food is delicious and staff very accommodating. Lunch outside with a view of the ocean.

We've always had good food and service. They have recently put in new plexiglass in their patio area. The lights and umbrellas add to the atmosphere and beautiful view. Their shrimp tacos are wonderful.

We went here to eat dinner on the outdoor patio with our daughter. We enjoyed watching the sunset and the waves crashing during dinner. The food was great, especially the clam chowder bowl.

Not a bad choice because of the setting (the view mainly), but the menu is not interesting and the food is very ordinary.

Always good food. We sit outside. View is great. Friendly staff; good service. Even when it is cool/cold out, we sit outside--they have heaters/enclosed enough to block breeze.

You're perhaps thinking of Moonshadows, on the beach in Malibu.

We take pride in our excellent service and being a kid-friendly establishment with a free toy for every child. While we love pets, we do ask that you leave your pets at home when dining at Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill.
