Great views, service, and food! Had a memorable experience with my sisters. Amazing Brussels sprouts, ahi tuna salad and brownie sundae.

Really great views and lovely service but the food was very mediocre. Not what we were expecting for the price or reputation. Best part was the kids having their leftovers wrapped up in animal shapes- dolphin and whale.

This was our first stop on our week long visit to California over spring break! All of the food was amazing. And the view! Wow. We took a nice walk along the beach while waiting for our table. What an overall lovely experience. Service was great, wait was short. Overall a great experience! Well worth the stop. Be aware -... More

Have had early dinner here twice in the last two months, one rainy day, one amazingly sunny and clear day. Things I loved: 1) Great, friendly, attentive, well-organized service, 2) Laid-back atmosphere, 3) Big, full bar and lots of places to sit, 4) Good-to-excellent quality food, 5) Big outdoor seating area as well as a lot of room inside, with...

Stopped for lunch on our drive from LAX to Ojai. Breathtaking views. Great but pricey lunch. $9 valet parking. Awesome views from the deck and inside restaurant

Gladstones is always an experience. It's So Cal so be prepared for it. Paid parking or valet- your choice. Attire is also your choice and you'll see a variety. This place has been serving up food and drinks at the beach for about 40 years. Our two orders of Fish-N-Chips and two Bloody Marys were $76.00. The food and service... More

Looking for the Best Seafood/Restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway, look no further than GLADSTONES! A frequent patron of Gladstones for the past 30 years, I can honestly say the food exquisite! Indoor seating right on the sand, and if you like to dine outdoors, that is also available, with Moonlight views of the ocean steps away, and heating lanterns to... More

Visited Gladstones for a birthday celebration dinner and was not disappointed! We started with Artichoke and Spinach dip which was fantastic (Warm bread and butter was also brought out to start). We then had a few sushi selections brought out, and I had ordered the fish tacos. Serving size was large and the food was delicious! They also had two... More

I have eaten at Gladstone's for years but it has gone downhill. Still a killer location but too crowded and too overpriced. Noisy and often rude. Not worth it when there are nicer places on the beach with equally great views, better food and more care for the customers.

Date Night, a Valentines Treat? Beautiful evening drinks overlooking the ocean til the gorgeous sun had set. Went inside with ocean views and had a wonderful Meal. Best creamy Clam Chowder ever with homemade huge hot bread for cutting. Yummy! Great service. Very special evening.
