Incredible views with very comfortable seating! The oysters are my girlfriend's go to dish and I thoroughly enjoyed the pasta bolognese on our most recent trip. This place has been around forever and the staff is excellent. My main advice is that the happy hour should be throughout the whole restaurant, not just in the bar area.

Love this restaurant for its scenic views, bountiful Sunday Brunch buffet, excellent customer service with attentive waitstaff, and freshest seafood selections around! Having heard about Moonraker from friends who have been here, I decided to try out the Sunday Brunch, and I was not disappointed! Fresh oysters, best clam chowder I've ever had, shrimp, clams, crab claws, typical breakfast buffet... More

My girlfriend wanted to take us next door but it was closed so we went here for breakfast. We started out being the only ones there, so there really wasn't any excuse for the waitress not to be attentive to topping up our coffee and tea, we ened up helping ourselves. Food arrived in time, looked good, was hot and... More

The food was ok, but, not being a Seafood lover I found the menu limited. The prices were on the high side as far as I'm concerned but maybe that was because I had 7 high school kids I was paying for too.

I think we went here 3 times during our stay in town if that tells you anything; twice for dinner, once just for happy hour. First night I had the ahi tuna entree. Did not knock my socks off but it was ok. I learned my lesson though because the people who ordered clam chowder would not shut up about... More

The seating is two layers of intimate booths all facing the ocean. The food was fantastic and the staff were prompt at handling all of our needs. While you are staring out the floor to ceiling windows out at the ocean, you barely notice that your drinks are being refilled. At night, the restaurant serves as a bit of nightclub... More

I really enjoy a good bowl of Clam Chowder and have been all over this great country of ours and always on the lookout for a great chowder restaurant , We were recommended to try Moonraker on a Tuesday Happy Hour where they serve a bowl at half price (normally $11) in the bar only. Well what a treat! The... More

We had a very nice meal at Moonraker, nice entrée selections. The prices seemed a little high especially the wine, which was nothing special. The service was OK with lots of people attending to us. The physical facility could use little sprucing up.

I lived in San Francisco for 13 years and the other ex-city snobs who trash this place and Nicks are generally full of it. This place is better than the vast majority of city restaurants with positively delectable appetizers and a surf and turf plate with lobster tail that is on point. The filet mignon was excellent as well. Their... More

We went for Happy Hour, drinks and a snack. This is one expensive place, even at happy hour ($13.95 for a Shrimp (6) cocktail). That being said, the view is to die for, perfect for a date - or if someone else is paying. .
