    We had ordered oysters, clam chowder, tuna tartare, grilled swordfish, blackened snapper & mac & cheese with bacon. One of the best meals I've ever had with incredible service. Angel is an angel.

    Food is fine, a little expensive but the views were absolutely breathtaking! Sit outside on the deck for the best view & breeze. If you're looking for a big view w a little dinner this is the spot!

    One of my favorite seafood places! Come on a regular day, avoid holidays. I've come here for Valentine's every year for 15 years. Was great in beginning, sizzler-esque this year. Great else wise.

    Amazing with food allergies!!! Chef Jason Hanin came to talk to me about my allergies. The meal was absolutely amazing! I have never experienced that service at any other restaurant in the world!!!

    The fish and chips, actually just the fish, was absolutely the best I've ever had but it's also the most expensive. You have to pay for that million dollar view.

    Seafood is the true star at the Malibu institution along the Pacific Coast Highway, which draws celebs like Pink and Ryan Seacrest, who drop in for chowder or lobster – and Pacific Ocean views.

    As everyone else has said, great view and decent food. The lobster roll was the highlight and delicious. Sat adjacent to Rob Weinstein ... dude is a LOUD talker.

    Food is quite good here; much improved over past. Several standouts include: Calamari appetizer, seafood risotto, key lime pie, and don't forget to ask for the free sourdough! Kids menu is good too.

    Start with the clams. They do an awesome white white, garlic, tomato,and basil sauce. And they have great coffee. Make sure you take a walk on the beach after to digest and chase birds. :)

    Ask the waiter what type of fish is served with the chips, and see if he knows. I'm 0 for 2.

    Let them know if you have a birthday to celebrate. They give you a very large slaice of chocolate cake with chocolate sauce for free. Delicious!

    Beautiful view on the patio, good service, average food. Conch chowder was just ok and rest of party agreed food was just decent. Valet parking for $7.

    Don't order the crab roll. It's canned, and super salty. Stick with a bowl of soup, some bread and a beer and you won't leave furious.

    Reservations are a good idea. Expect slow service and pricey food as it's a touristy place. Comfortable though and kid friendly.

    Clam chowder is decent. On average, food was disappointing. I much prefer Duke's, which is much cheaper with similar views.
