This is THE place I always want to go to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine sitting outside by the fire pit. I'll have to find my photos - some taken from this venue are just stunning! They even provide blankets if it's a chilly evening. Indoor dining is also nice, a little "close" and hard to hear,... More

I happened upon this historic building that turned out to be quite the find! I enjoyed a great lunch and wine on the outdoor patio. Beautiful view while listening to some wonderful music (not live). Make the time to explore the photos and read about it's history. Loved the interior as well. Great vibe! Oh yes and ask about the... More

The brunch was excellent. There was a choice of pastries, and entrees. I selected the crab cakes. They were very good. Very good service, attentive and helpful servers.

My husband and I spent two weeks in San Francisco in March 2017. We rented a car and drove to Half Moon Bay because I've always wanted to go there. We had dinner at Moss Beach Distillery. The view from our table was breath-taking. The wait-staff couldn't be more helpful and enjoyable to talk to. The food was excellent. Like... More

Calamari appetizer tender with small cole slaw and two dips. The qu de mar is crab and prawn in rich cheese sauce. Interesting mixed vegetable and wild rice sides. Fillet mignon is very tender and the pineapple on the tuna is a nice blend. Range of main dishes in $26-32 range. Some dishes less and sandwiches are offered too. Try... More

So we went for a gorgeous walk between Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and Ross Cove and came across this restaurant in between. From the outside you don't know quite what to expect on the inside. What you get however is a lovely restaurant, bar and a stunning patio area. And the food, WOW! I could not possibly recommend the seafood sliders... More

You come to the Moss Beach Distillery for the oceans views. Food was delicious. But service wasn't so great. The hostess took her sweet time to greet us, instead preferring to talk with another co-worker for 2-4 minutes before acknowledging us. Wait staff was just okay, I've had better service at other restaurants of the same caliber. The furniture was... More

Back to this great place after a few years. This was a must go place for all of our houseguests. They still have a nice menu with variety and tasty food. The spinach salad was especially great.

Came here for my daughter's birthday. Nice place for a celebration. Food was good. Staff was both attentive and friendly. Views were awesome and topped it off with a drink at the firepits.

Thank frauduck
