Was staying in Pacifica and stopped in for lunch. Wait staff was very friendly and knew the menu well. I ended up with the BLT wrap which was very good. Had a lot of good sounding items on the menu I'm sure if I lived there would be there on a regular basis.

Only two of us and took hour and half, DND that it calling waitress over to place meal order and to get/pay bill. Our two meals not overly impressive. One was the tuna melt witch wasn't special, and the other... More

I've gone to Sea Bowl many times, but never thought to venture down the parking lot to Surf Spot, until we decided to host a birthday lunch. What a place. There's outdoor seating and I guess the regulars know to use the side gate and just head back there. There's a bar that you can order drinks from out there.... More

Recently discovered this spot...had a great meal (and they were very accommodating in modifying for a vegetarian)...really nicely done cocktail...and a nice, relaxed vibe. I didn't try the fire pit out back but it looked like a great place to hang out and have cocktails. I'll be back!

I have been there many times with clients and staff and we loved the food. Oh sunny days you may sit outside (great). Good salads, pizza, beer list, and mellow atmosphere.

Surf spot is good if your clustered with tons of kids and a few parents who don't want to supervise or have their children sti at the table. It's kind of a sports bar for children. They can run wild throw balls and otherwise behave as if they are in a park even in the areas where other people are... More

A cool spot with great outdoor seating. Trendy menu items, good pizza and burgers but also very pricey Good service and food was tasty. Didn't sit at the bar but seemed like a busy place.

We love going to surf spot with our family - the kids can run around in the grass area and volleyball court while we can enjoy excellent food and drinks. They also have a fire pit outside and it's the perfect place to meet up for drinks or dessert and enjoy a low key evening. The live music they have... More
