Located on Crystal Cove Beach with wonderful sunset views. Food is good with a limited menu. Very busy as it is the only restaurant with this kind of location in the area. Plan on waiting at least one hour for a table. The bar has no view at all, however has friendly and prompt service.

Party of 7 for lunch

Seating was hard as the host who seats you was not treating well.

Appetizers were good: we ordered grilled artichokes and hummus

Main course: burger, rib sandwich and fish& chips

We love this place. Beautiful views, fabulous food. If you can snag a reservation do it, always an outdoor table with a ocean view with a reservation, this place is always busy too. But it definitely worth the wait. Try the clam chowder. You will not be disappointed.

While walking Crystal Cove we stopped for a brief snack and drinks. To our surprise we found a delicious restaurant with excellent service and responsive staff. We sat at a small bar and watched the kitchen and wait staff process the orders and marveled at their efficiency. The food was wonderful, fresh and perfectly prepared. The calimari melted in our mouths and the sandwich’s fabulous. We plan to go back on our next trip. Try this gem out.

Crystal cove is a marvelous beach. With the old ruined homes to one side, looking like a time lapse picture, and the mighty Pacific on the other, stretching for miles of sandy beach. The Beachcomer is usually full, so there's a wait involved, and a good opportunity to get the appetite up by walking. Bette Midler's house from the movie Beaches is located 5 minutes walk from there. The restaurant is in a diner layout, slightly cramped, but buzzing with energy. I usually have the cheeseburger there, which is always very good.
I have been there at least ten times now, and never once been disappointed
