Nice weather, decent view, inattentive server and bland food. The feeling crossed our minds quickly that we picked the wrong place to eat when the waiter came to our table and spoke without looking at us making it hard to hear or understand him. Staring...More

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

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.
