One of the best hamburgers I've ever had in my life. Loved the French onion soup made with a hint a wine. The view is breathtaking. Enjoyed our bartender Joey. Loved it so much we went back the next day.

This restaurant now has outdoor dining so it's a wonderful place to bring your canine friends. The menu is varied and delicious.

I travel to NorCal frequently for business and ALWAYS make plans to eat at Moss Beach Distillery. Whenever I'm traveling with colleagues, I've taken them too, to introduce them to the legendary place and the reactions are always positive (as in, "Can we stay a little longer?" or "Do we have to get back to San Fran right away?")

The view and location of the distillery is outstanding. We've gone for dinner and really enjoyed overlooking the ocean waves and sunset while eating our fish, steak and clam chowder. We've also gone for lunch and happy hour, sat outside by the dog friendly fire pits and really enjoyed ourselves as well (the menu outside is more casual - fish... More

We ate here for a late lunch on a Friday and really enjoyed the food and view. Great sight to see the ocean while you are enjoying a good lunch.

We searched high & low for an open restaurant on Christmas Day and were striking out. We saw the sign and drove down the lane - open to a packed house! We were directed to the outside patio where fire pits were well spaced, with extra blankets provided! We met some interesting people and had great conversations. Food was just... More

Interesting location. The restaurant is in a residential area, a bit hard to find. It took a little bit longer than expected for the food in terms of wait. But the wait was worth it. I had the Alfredo with filet mignon and skirt stead with mushroom and it was great and with generous portion. My wife had the Fish... More

We perhaps had high expectations for this place -- a former speakeasy fronting the ocean with a great view and interesting history (including being haunted). Perfect place for a husband and wife to have a lunch or dinner or even a family (saw quite a few there). The service was good and attentive. A bit disappointing was the food quality.... More

Maybe the view might be worth it during the daytime but at night, when you see nothing at a window table, it's a definite pass in my opinion. The food is not good. When asked about the stuffed ravioli, we were told it came from a box. Yep. That's about the quality of food here. My sliders were overdone, the... More
