As others have noted, the decor is dated but you can sense so much history in this building, and that didn't bother us a bit. The views of the waves of the Pacific crashing ashore are almost right outside the front door. Coming here at...More

We visited here on a Friday night, and the place was bustling and had a good atmosphere. Previous reviews state the outdated decor, and being honest, if it wasn’t packed full of people this would have been felt. As it was our final night in...More

The location is great and the restaurant looks nice from the outside. The weather was cold, so we had to have dinner inside, a little bit old-fashioned decorated, but it looks OK. I ordered the most expensive dish on the menu, filet mignon, and my...More

We had a pleasant lunch and Juan our server was good. The fish was a somewhat of a small serving, but was well prepared. Price for lunch for two, including wine and gratuity was $155. A little high for what you would expect

Good menu choices, excellent service, and if you're lucky a ringside sunset view. Had a lunch and dinner there. For some reason the lunch left a better memory than dinner - it was good, but not that 'remember it the next day' quality. Easy walk...More

Yes. It’s open all the time I believe. We were there in December and it was open.

The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and decor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side.
