The food was ok and prices were similar to most California restaurants. They didn’t open until noon, so anyone wanting an early lunch had to wait in a line outside. They should consider opening an hour before. I had the fish tacos, not bad.

The food was mediocre. Seafood fettucini sauce was bland and floury. Calamari was chewy, rubbery. Waitress seemed underwhelmed, to say the least. The patio is a nice place to dine if you like dogs. (dogs and dog bowls at every table) That didn't bother us...More

Claudio was a fantastic server, ask for him!! Great food. It was dark so we didn't get to see the ocean views they are known for. Great history!

Yes. It’s open all the time I believe. We were there in December and it was open.

Description
The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and decor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side.
