The Longboard Grill is situated in a prime location. However, the restaurant is not in prime condition. The umbrellas had bird droppings all over them, the menus were dirty, the table wasn't clean, and the overall appearance was dirty. No pride in ownership. The cheeseburger...More

This is a restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere with nice views of the beach and mountains. It is about half way down the pier so you can watch boats go in and out of the harbor. We ate on the outside patio so as expected...More

Really enjoyed dinner at Longboards. Good food ( portions so big !! ) and the view of the sunset and ocean was incredible. Our waitress ( didn't get her name, sorry! ) was absolutely lovely and a credit to the establishment.

The food is average, but the location can't be beat. We like to sit on the outside deck and enjoy the breeze. The deck is upstairs (if you have trouble with stairs, there is an elevator) and has a nice view of the beach and...More

A great place to grab a snack and drink. However, it is very overpriced for average food. Go to the other side of the harbor and got to Brophys or Sushi A Go Go instead.
