A nice place to visit with friends or coworkers. It is located on the beach so the view is really nice. Food is excellent, I had a great experience and definitely recommend.

One of the few restaurants that are right on the water, in this area of Encinitas. Make reservations to sit outside on the glassed in deck area. We started with the crab and lobster guacamole dip, which was absolutely delicious, I could have made a meal out of that alone. The blood orange margarita was outstanding, I could have had a couple of those, but was flying out the next morning. I had the Hawaiian ribs,and my daughter had the Ahi, both very good. Try to plan around the sunset, we were a little early, but it would certainly be a nice way to end your meal.

In my opinion, typically restaurants that have amazing views like the beachfront Pacific Coast Grill often don’t have great food because they don’t have to. People will go and have mediocre food so that they can look at the ocean. Thankfully PCG is not typical. Their sushi and fish dishes are delicious! I resisted going for quite some time because I heard it was overpriced. I totally disagree. You get what you pay for and PCG is totally worth it.

From the minute you park your car with the friendly valets, and see the proximity to the ocean you know you’re in for a treat!
All who work there are extraordinarily accommodating and professional and fun!
The food is lovely, always! The salmon was a hit and the
Plum-Ginger Braised Short Ribs are rich and flavorful.
Can’t wait to return! Either can our 8 year old Grandson!

Beautiful restaurant right on the beach. Gorgeous sunsets! Excellent food and service as well. The calamari was awesome. Make a reservation well in advance.
