Birthday lunch celebration
Strawberry with Bananas and Mangos
A nice outdoor dining experience during an oppressive pandemic!
We enjoyed a very nice late lunch. Very nice. Area is decorated for the holidays too.
One of our favorite places in the area! Always try to get there when we are in town. The fish & chips are the best ever. Great cheeseburger. Bloody Mary is a meal in itself. So good! Can't wait to go again. And the setting is amazing!
our lunch experience was very good. the food and beverages, the service and ambiance of the Beachcomber was all first rate. unfortunately an extremely loud young woman was seated at the next table. she put a slight damper our lunch. we left before having desert and after dinner drinks because of her.
There were four of us for breakfast at the Beachcomber. It’s right on the sand with a wonderful view of the ocean. The food was absolutely delicious. So yummy. We all agreed that we had a great time. Looking forward to doing that again !
Respects social distancing. Provides many heaters for cool evenings. And the food was just terrific.
Crab Benedict was the worst I’ve ever had, the sauce tasted like processed cheese. Other than that, the food was good
It is always a pleasure to eat at Beachcomber. The staff are delightful, the breakfast choices are good, and the view is unbeatable. The restaurant has done a good job of spacing out tables to be COVID compliant. The waitstaff are friendly and efficient. The only down side is the difficulty of getting a reservation.
It was a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving experience. We’ve wanted to bring our daughter for some time and she loved it. Even with COVID, all precautions in place and it felt safe and such a wonderful day.
Incredible! Beautiful day with table right on the beach which was perfect setting for special guest visiting California for the first time.
While the ambiance is compromised due to Covid, the food was terrific and service by Melissa superior. They are doing everything they can to preserve safety while providing a great experience. Can't think of one thing I'd change. Thanks!
Always great Service... Thank you🍴
Wonderful service, food, and ambiance!
the place is adorable. right on the beach. great ambiance.
Amazing food snd view. Excellent service Covid style!
Amazing place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner.....at the water's edge! I had guests for dinner and it was just perfect! The fresh salmon was delicious and one of my guests had the sea bass, one of the nights special dinners, and it was superbly prepared! We had the most attentive and pleasant server. A definite 5 star experience!
Ryan was a great server and the yellow spaghetti squash was incredible! Will definitely get that again!
Great food and a pleasant experience as usual. Since it was cold and the restaurant was not busy...it would if been nice to park below instead of taking a very cold bus to the top parking lot across pch. The parking lot below was wide open. Restaurant could be saving money...just a thought.
Wonderful server Chelsea took amazing care of us, food is phenomenal: scallops, tuna , sea bass, pork chop all amazing.
It was beautiful, the service from Jesus was excellent
Most amazing setting, fantastic service, delicious food (steak chiliquiles is a favorite of mine). Always such a treat!
This is a terrific place. Well prepared food, good service, one of our favorites!
Pricey for what it is, but you can't beat the view and the food is good.
What a Gem! I want to keep it a secret! Thank you Jesus for the best service ever!
We had an outstanding experience, our server Oscar was outstanding. He was attentive and his service was impeccable. We were able to get a table along the strip rather than the deck which was outstanding. Food service was fast we never felt rushed enjoyed every minute and it was a beautiful day the beachcomber never disappoints. Thank you
Celebrated 3 birthdays! It was a beautiful day with great weather, excellent service and food!
Felt very safe with the distancing of the tables and the protocols followed by the staff. Oscar was amazing and we can’t wait to come back!
The server and service was excellent. Food was delicious!
A wonderful restaurant with the most outstanding service, location, food, and atmosphere.
Wonderful. Sitting 75' from the ocean. Attentive staff. Delicious food.
Always enjoy eating here when i can get a reservation. Food is amazing and you can't beat the location.
The service and the food were fabulous. We were entertaining an out of town guest, everything was perfect.
Great for a casual beach side brunch or breakfast. The staff are always very friendly and the food is reliable although it could sometimes be hotter. They have spaced tables well apart making this a comfortable place to dine in the time of COVID. The only down side is that it is very tough to get a weekend breakfast reservation.
The ambient is just beautiful!!!! The service was very friendly. We were a bit disappointed about the food. Far away from what we expected for that price range.... you pay more for the view instead of the food....
