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.

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.

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

It's cheap, I have waited in a queue some times and sometimes been quiet. If your looking for cheap seafood it's a good place with a good view! Got a car park if you can get a space too

I have driven past this roadside restaurant on the weekends for many years and never stopped because the parking lot is always full and usually dozens of Motorcycles parked out front. I passed by it mid week this time and there was plenty of parking so I thought I would give it a try. It was well worth the time... More

While some of the food here might be OK this place is disgustingly dirty, The tables are greasy and sticky. The restrooms are not restrooms at all but four port-a-potties with a handwash station in a shed behind the restaurant. None of the port-a-potties are accessible for someone with disabilities. There are much better and cleaner seafood places along the... More

What a disappointment this was. It has all the elements of a fun time, near the beach, fresh seafood, outdoor seating... First off, the "world famous clam chowder" was simply awful. The potatos were undercooked, there was no flavor. Is it possible that canned clam chowder is better than this? Yep, I think so. The bathrooms are outhouses in back.... More

My son saw this restaurant in the Fast and Furious movies and in his video games so he wanted to stop. The lines were very long and you had to wait for a seat, and move quickly to get it. The food was OK but I expected more for a restaurant specializing in seafood. We enjoyed the drive out from... More
