Was there a wait to get in? Yup - about 1 hour (since it's also Labor Day weekend). Did we care? Nope - we walked down along the beach for a while, then popped back up to wait the remaining 15 min close by the...More

We have been loyal guests at the beachcomber every summer for the past 15 Years and were rarely disappointed. Last Monday toward the end of August we face the first totally "off day " at this great establishment. Almost Nothing was working as it should!...More

Good bar food. Drinks are worth it. Famous history and worth reading about it on the menu. Very good music and noisy. We had a blast. One last thing: don't forget to buy a t shirt

It's the whole experience of the beach and a restaurant/bar overlooking the beautiful Ocean atop a big cliff. The food is very good, but expect a wait (worth it though) for a table.
