Not as good as people say it is! Service was terrible. They pretty much forgot us. Food wasn’t all that. The view was beautiful. We were sat outside but there were heaters and the weather was actually really nice! We were able to see the...More

Thursdays they have a $20 fixed price item. When we went it was a Capri salad, a Parmesan cheese crusted scallops on scalloped potatoes, with Pumpkin Gelato for dessert. We also decided to order two appetizers. Our server came and put our two appetizers down...More

I love this place and it is a favorite family destination for us. We really enjoy the Mother's day brunch, but it's also a solid choice for other times. I recommend the seafood as well as the steak au poivre. The views are stunning!

This restaurant offers inside and outside dining. We tried both during our recent outing and found both equally enjoyable. The inside was more elegant with live piano music during our dining experience. The outside provided a beautiful view of the ocean from all angles. The...More

Description
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.
