This restaurant is perfect for a romantic dinner with a beautiful view of the ocean. Tables are situated so everyone has a view. The food is outstanding and the service is spot on. Happy hour with bar food is also a great perk. Give it...More

Many places with a great view rely on that as a major draw. Here, the spectacular ocean view is almost forgotten when the food arrives. The ahi tartare moons are delicately and exquisitely flavored. The calamari comes with cocktail sauce and aioli and is a...More

We stayed at the adjacent motel and had most of our meals at Moonraker. Breakfast was generous and very tasty (carmelized banana French toast-yum!); clam chowder was full of meat; dinner, while not a lot of choices was perfect-sole, salmon, prawns--all great. They even made...More

I ordered the Dungeness crab and I thought it was really bad. It was so hot when it came to the table that I couldn't even touch it. I've never, ever had crab like that and I've had a lot in my many years. I...More

A nice restaurant in a place that needs a lot more of them. Excellent view, food good. Quite pricy, though.

Nice romantic place for dinner. We had the sunday brunch which was a bit expensive for all you can eat seafoods.....Crabs. Its ok if you are in the area.

We picked this restaurant because of the beautiful ocean views. The ocean was very dramatic with waves crashing against the rocks outside the windows. We got there at the perfect time to watch the sunset while we enjoyed fresh oysters and seafood. A family of...More

Ate lunch here and sat in a booth facing the ocean. Awesome view... I had the seafood Louie and my husband had the crab cake sandwich. My class of wine cost as much as my salad. Really expensive so be prepared to shell out some...More

View is amazing. Can sit right in front of ocean as you eat. Wait staff is friendly and food is good. Parking around restaurant is easy and plentiful. Only drawback is that it's hard to get seated when you get there.

I was there about a month ago and ordered a fish dinner. The atmosphere is beautiful but the seafood lacks solid taste, was rather bland. My friend had a pasta dish which was also on the bland side. Service was good but you pay a...More
