We came for happy hour and stayed thru dinner. Plenty of good beers on tap. Some non-traditional burger choices. We had a turkey burger and an ahi tuna burger. Choice of different types of fries or onion rings as side orders. Plenty of televisions strategically located and these show a Cubs world series win.

Stumbled across this place for the first time. There is an outside patio without TV's, so I assume it is quieter than inside even though it overlooks PCH. The service was really good and the fish and chips were great. Then roasted chicken was also very good, even as leftovers for dinner. It is a little pricey and gets loud... More

Nice sports bar with better than average food . the fried chicken was good as was the clam chowder. The drinks came fast and three games were on, the place was crowded and loud so if a big party is your thing then stop on in.

We went here as a family of 10, so we got all kinds of different things. Everyone said their food was good, and the service was also very good and friendly. I can mainly just comment on what I ordered, though, and that was the pastrami sandwich on fry-bread. It was excellent, although enormous. I would have taken half home... More

We just called in for drinks but the food looked good. Plenty of tv screens for sport and great service. They have cider on draught! A rare find in these parts.

The Point is a family friendly dinning experience that is open for lunch and dinner with nightly live entertainment. Thursday night live Jazz trios, Friday night DJ's and Sat night local bands. We are open from 11:30 until late every day except Mondays(until Football starts). We have beautiful views of Dana Point Harbor and a warm outdoor patio with large fireplace. We also have a "Kids Cave" that has chalkboard walls for the kids to drawl on and kids movies playing, so parents can enjoy their meals for a few extra minutes. We have a wide selection of Wines and Micro beers as well.
