The plus factor is this place is on a small strip of private beach so while you wait an hour or two for your table you can have a good time hanging out. My kids really liked that. The food is good but not amazing....More

I live in NYC so I remember the good old days of the Hard Rock or Planet Hollywood. It's cool when you first walk in and see the guitars and memorabilia on the walls. Then, you sit down to eat and the food just isn't...More

The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some
areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted
