The place is a bit dated inside but the seating outdoors and the view is awesome. I started my meal with one of the best cups of New England Chowder I've had in a long time. For lunch, I had the blackened salmon sandwich and...More

Nice place a few miles north of Half Moon Bay. Excellent outdoor patio with full menu service. Not cheap, but still worth it.

Ask for a table with a view. The food was very good, as was the service. Being right on the ocean made the meal that much more enjoyable. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

The view of the ocean is fantastic; no doubt about that! The food is usually good, but not always. My shrimp and crap linguine was excellent. My friend’s crab melt was only mediocre. The waiter was attentive and I rate him very positively. The pianist...More

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.
