Definitely not fancy, but a good place for wide range of fresh seafood: steamed, grilled or fried. Grab a table, then your favorite beverage from a wall of coolers, order at one of 2 counters and they will call you when it's ready. Reasonable prices...More

Bikers, Sunday drivers, day trippers and more all show up at Neptunes Net for the food and the ambiance. Right on PCH, just north of Malibu. My wife and I stop there all the time as we head to or back from Paso Robles.

A total California experience. Where else can you find bikers, surfers, Porsches, VW mini buses, suits, gray haired ladies, pits bulls and lap dogs. And besides that the food is great!

Iconic location overlooking the ocean. No nonsense but delicious seafood platters with good prices and decent portions. A great stop for lunch on a drive up the coast.

The beer and drinks selection are fantastic, but the fish coating is very ordinary and greasy. Portions are way smaller than at Malibu Seafood also.

On our cross country trip to California and on the way to Santa Monica Pier we stopped in for lunch. Very crowded and have both indoor and outdoor seating. We chose outdoor but later regretted it because of the plentiful motorcycles doing wheelies on the...More
