Love the fish tacos and fries. So many great dishes. Happy hour plus room for groups. Foster's soft serve is a perfect finish.

Local organic, casual restaurant with picnic tables inside and out. Very trendy. I had fish tacos, huge and yummy. Grandson like the veggie taco. My husband enjoyed fish soup and oysters on the half shell. Local beer on tap.

We ate here on a Saturday night and it was full but not crowded. The garden is very amiable, long tables suitable for big groups and a scattering of booths for four. The food was very fresh and good, if a bit expensive. We split...More

If you want oysters, I guess this is the place to go but if you want any other fish, you are limited to the catch of the day that was only prepared 1 way - on a sandwich. Not impressed. Don’t know what the big...More

Nice spot for a lunchtime snack. Pretty garden seating. Good wine selection and thoughtful if somewhat west county laid back service. Oysters were nice and fresh.

I go to Handline about every other month for the delicious fresh fish and other dishes. While it is great food, in some areas I find it a tad precious, which detracts from the experience for me. Parking around dinner or lunch rush is a...More

Handline Coastal California is a modern roadside eatery in West County, featuring sustainable seafood from the West Coast and burgers from chef Natalie Goble and Lowell Sheldon of Peter Lowell's organic restaurant in Sebastopol. The modern California menu celebrates the region's bounty and pays homage to the early immigrants who brought their cooking techniques and ingredients to the Golden State, handmade corn tortillas (milled onsite and cooked on the comal), Baja-style tacos, tostadas and ceviches are served alongside Dungeness crab sandwiches, fisherman's stew, fresh oysters and LA-style (Foster's) burgers. Handline is inspired by its location in the former Foster's Freeze on the main drag in town on Gravenstein Highway, where for generations, families have met up for a bite.
