We needed somewhere close to stay near SAN Francisco so we didn’t have to travel far to hand the car in at the airport the next morning. We found a hotel(America’s Best Value Inn) and the Miramar was the nearest restaurant (a ten minute walk)...More

Good menu choices, excellent service, and if you're lucky a ringside sunset view. Had a lunch and dinner there. For some reason the lunch left a better memory than dinner - it was good, but not that 'remember it the next day' quality. Easy walk...More

The food was ok and prices were similar to most California restaurants. They didn’t open until noon, so anyone wanting an early lunch had to wait in a line outside. They should consider opening an hour before. I had the fish tacos, not bad.

Yes. It’s open all the time I believe. We were there in December and it was open.

The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and decor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side.
