Having lived here my entire life I have only been to this place once, and that was a log time ago. There was a wait on a Sunday morning. It was busy with bike riders, motorcycle riders, locals and some out oft owners we met. From England. I had the Chile Omelet, and GF had the Eggs Ben. We both... More

Great restaurant on the beach. Large portions of really good food. I had the oatmeal supreme, best I've ever had. My husband had French toast special and we shared because it was too much for one! Enjoy

Go for the location. Average food, but you can't beat the casual location. Always surfers and bikers. Don't get me wrong, food is good, but not exceptional. Sit outside and enjoy view. Best for breakfast.

On a drive along the coast last weekend looking for somewhere to eat breakfast, we came across this place completely by accident - I think that's called serendipity! It's one of those totally casual, "beachy" places where locals go. It's mainly a big patio right on the beautiful sands of Seal Beach! It was a busy Sunday morning but the... More

A rundown spot with very poor service and the food is basically salads and burgers. The view is very nice it's right on the beach and that's why people go but don't go for the food because it's terrible.

This place is right on the beach, with a great view of the ocean. The staff was polite and helpful. The prices were reasonable for an awesome meal. Word of warning, if you go for dinner in September, bring a light jacket as it got a bit cold around 7:00 pm. Had two toddlers with us and they were able... More

They have pasta and Mexican food. Good for a long and lazy "chat and visit" restaurant. The view never gets old. The laid back atmosphere is very relaxing the food is a plus.

I've seen this place go through several owners, great fish & chips! Hours are kinda funky, hard to remember! Bloody Mary's need some work! It's on the sand at the rivers end! Fun!

We went here to meet a family member while on a trip to the area. The food was just OK (kinda mixed reviews: fish tacos good, cheese plate mediocre, with some odd sausage that appeared inedible and cucumbers, and calamari strips decent) , the service was VEEERRRRRYYYYY SSSSLLLLOOOOOWWWWWW. Be prepared. But for a place to hang out, watch the beach,... More
