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.

Went for lunch with my wife on a Friday while driving from San Francisco to Monterey. Views were nice as was the service and food. My wife loved her crab cakes. I had the pulled pork sandwiches and fries, which was also pretty good. We enjoyed our meal and would return if we are back in the area.

Went here with another couple for lunch while traveling down the coast highway to Monterey. The food and view from the dining room were outstanding. Our server was very nice. Recommend the seafood quesadilla or fish and chips. Definitely worth a stop.

We dropped in with our kids for a little happy hour after a day out to the redwoods. An acquaintance had told me that the distillery is their favorite dinner spot in the area. We were able to easily find a table inside since the outside patio is clearly popular. It looked really comfy for meeting up with family or... More

The only problem was it made us miss our sweet Basset Hound SO Much seeing people with their pets sitting outside with the view and the fire pits. We just lost our beloved Flash on Feb 11. He was 14 years old. When I did the research about pet friendly places we still had him and I could just picture... More

I have eaten here many times. Always great food and service. There are fantastic views overlooking the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. I try to get here every time I am in the bay area.

We always hit the Moss Beach Distillery when we visit San Francisco. The steamers are incredible and the view is fantastic. It's always chilly in March, but that makes the outdoor seating around (fake) fire pits so fun. However, this time there was a mountain of dirty dishes everywhere, even though only four seats were occupied, so we ate inside... More

Went to a late lunch with hubby on a beautiful sunny day. The view is worth the trip to this casual and relaxing restaurant in Half Moon Bay. Even at 2:30 pm there was a wait of about 15 minutes at this immensely popular restaurant overlooking the ocean. One can sit downstairs outside in the patio area and order from... More
