Stopped by Neptune's Net on our drive from Orange County up to Solvang. The location is quite charming and great for people-watching. We ordered the carne asada plate and fried scallop & calamari plate. Food was okay. The carne asada was overcooked and touch to cut or chew. The fried seafood plate had way too much French fries on the... More

Food was very good; the fish tacos were good as were the fried shrimp. My seafood-adverse kid ordered a chicken salad and it looked great (chicken with salad, not chicken-salad). But bathrooms are outhouses, and one was in good condition and the other in appalling condition. Atmosphere is very casual; it's breezy and noisy outside due to the highway between... More

I would give 4 stars but my only issue is it was a little confusing to figure out how to order with 2 kitchens and 2 menus. But once we figured it out all was well. The fish and chips were perfect! Pretty good size too. And the clam chowder was definitely on par from what I would expect out... More

You gotta stop at this place. Fish and chips, oysters, clams, calamari. It is all delicious. When you get there, you get yourself a table with bikers, surfers, locals and travelers alike. And enjoy your meal, a good beer and some good conversation!

First time here and liked it. The clam chowder was very good although not as good as Splash cafe in Pismo Beach Ca.The fried calamari was excellent, fresh and very soft not stringy as were the onion rings. All in all enjoyable.

Been coming here for years on weekends (I live nearby) for good fried seafood and a large beer selection along with surfers and bikers. But prices have gone up as the portions have shrunk. Scallops are quarter-sized, as are the shrimp. They look like they were pre-breaded from the grocery store, instead of hand made restaurant style. Still super popular... More

I love fish and chips and they were perfect. Very crunchy fish and the tarter sauce had the right amount of dill and not so pickley. The only downside was they close at 8pm and we were there at 7:30 so didn't get to lounge around. Fabulous selection of beer!!!

If you are cruising along Hwy 1 in Malibu, make sure to stop at Neptunes Net for some fresh and delicious seafood. This is not a fancy place, but it is an institution in Malibu and one not to be missed! You can buy a six pack or bottle of wine, order your seafood, and have it steamed or prepared... More

It's located outside Malibu, very easy to spot since it's on 101. I don't like deep fried food so I ordered the crab cake burger and it was very good! My husband had the sea food platter and was also good. Great beer wall!
