“Good Service, food average”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We went there on a long weekend and wanted to listen to music and have a small dinner. Prices are pretty high for the quality of the food, but the music was nice and we had a above average experience for the area.

“Salt Creek Grill”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

A wonderful place to meet and eat.The Mgmt is always there to assist and help on orders,etc. There is a great "happy hour" and many,many locals attend.Personality plus Bartenders.Too, prices are right.The menu is all incompassing and delectable.Try the thick cut pork chop or prime rib. Bar and dining areas are very comfortable.The place is neat, clean and decorated just right. Dana Point is fortunate to have this wonderful restaurant.On the border of Dana Point and Laguna Beach. See you there. Jack

“Unbelievable Service & Food”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

This is hands down one the best places I have ever dined. I have been here twice in a month and I live on the east coast. Cannot wait to be back. It is one of the restaurants you always think about going to. The Sea Bass is truly unbelievable. This place is everything you could want and is immaculately clean as well.

“Good but not special”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Mid-week meant the restaurant was not busy, yet we were not given a choice of sitting in a window. Privacy is good at the booths but they are rather dark. Service was good - attentive waitress and everything arrived promptly. Food was fairly standard, although I am not a burger/ribs person and I believe that type of food is their specialty. I would definitely eat here again, but not for a special occasion.

“Friendly staff and good food”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

We were greeted by a friendly hostess and promptly seated. We had a reservation. The service was very good as was the food. I had the ahi stack off the appetizer menu. My husband had the ribs which were excellent and a very generous portion. We will return on our next visit.
