We had just driven an hour to Newport, looked for nearly a half hour for a decent parking spot and were ready to grab something quick to eat before we hit the beach. We decided to stop at Pipeline after a quick review of an online app that gave it good reviews. We weren't disappointed! The burgers were great, the... More

This is a great place to stop for a bite to eat, several menu items and reasonable prices. I ordered the onion rings which were very good, We also ordered ice cream, The sundae and banana split were huge, even the kids cones were generous. Highly recommend stopping by for some good eats if you are nearby

Pipeline serves at a walk-up window just a few steps off the sand of Newport Beach. If you have worked up an appetite on a 5 mile beach walk and are too sandy and wet to come indoors, Pipeline will make your day. The chicken club sandwich with grilled peppers, juicy hamburgers and fat, hot onion rings are just the... More

Six of us were riding bikes on the boardwalk and this turned out to be a convenient spot to stop for lunch. It's a "hole-in-the-wall" type of place, so it was a gamble on the food quality. Turned out to be terrific food at a great price.

Pipeline is right on the beachfront. The service is quick and the food is good, Walk up to the window, place your order and within a few minutes, your food will be ready. There are tables near the restaurant to sit and eat, or take your food to the beach, or sit near the pier and eat while enjoying some... More

On our vacation to Orange County we wanted to rent some beach gear. We rented an umbrella and a couple body boards. The prices were reasonable and the person working there was really friendly. The body boards were not the highest quality but they're were hard bottomed boards and worked great for our vacation day at Newport Beach. We didn't... More

Walking on the Newport Beach/ Balboa Penninsula 'boardwalk' today. We were hungry and decided to split a frozen banana. Usually we get this treat on Balboa Island at Dad's, where their chocolate covering is dark chocolate, and the toppings are of higher quality and there are more choices in toppings. Still, we were hungry. First bite, the milk chocolate coating... More

Oh My I'm so sorry you did not like our banana:-( That is not how I would want you to think of us and I'm sorry. We have many other good Items you might like. I'm so embarrassed because this is the first complaint I have had about our bananas in the 20 plus years we have been here. I'm... More

A great little food stand on the beach. They offer everything you'd want or need while visiting the beach. The burgers where dynamite and the ice cream and milkshakes top notch.

So impressed by their fish and chips and their BBQ bacon cheeseburger. It's way cheaper than the places around it, and way better than the others I've tried.
