Neptune's is a local stop where you can find a good burger, fried clams or seafood while cruising down the coast. Neptune's is a sit-down with views of the Pacific. Once a surfers and locals stop, it's a tourist and eclectic mix which is worth the stop. Where else can you eat with surfers, international tourist, locals, and bikers all... More

The best kept secret in America. The food was amazing by the sea, top value for your money. Plus you get to see lots of bikers and surfers. I recommend the fish and chips all day every day.

This is a self service restaurant, it offers nice breakfast and large variety of alcoholic drinks. I believe that it is nicer place to stop by during the summer as the place doesn't offer sea view from inside the restaurant.

I still enjoy going here; but miss the days where it was true beach people. Surfers and locals. Now that am a outsider since I moved the food is great but no one can turn the clock back to my days of Zero beach and the best breaks.

Driving down the coast today and came across this restaurant at lunch time. Service was fast and the food was good. Had the fish and chips and the two pieces of fish were big and the fries were good and hot. The best part was the view. For a sea coast town this was a nice casual place to eat.

Along the Pacific Coast Highway on the east side of the road, at first glance this establishment -- with the parking lot full and people standing around shifting from foot to foot waiting for a seat -- might seem less than encouraging, but it is worth the effort. Since there is no hostess to seat you, just go in and... More

Good location off the PCH in west Malibu. Large menu to choose from and large place for families as well. Lots of motorcycles are almost always there and it makes for good sightseeing with all the different bikes....as well as the riders....and of course the ocean is right across the street. Eat some good seafood and enjoy the day.

I had the clam chowder. It wasn't the most amazing clam chowder in the world. I had far better clam chowder, however I liked the atmosphere and the clam chowder was still good and they're the only restaurant next to the beach. It isn't easy or rather super safe to get over there from the beach, but it is still... More

I used to eat here 25 years ago and loved it! Yes it's been in many movies and the seafood is good but last 2 times I tried to eat there it was so crowded we ended up going elsewhere. I suppose it's a victim of its own success! Cool place to stop and take pics though.

We popped in here on our way back to Santa Monica from Ventura. I'd heard so much about "Neptunes" & was looking forward to trying it myself - what a great spot for the best fish & chips along the PCH!!! We enjoyed the homemade fish burger, a crispy piece of delicious white fish served on a toasted bun with... More
