Wonderful! Right on the beach.
Excellent food and service.
Normally I would give 5 stars- have been here a number of times and it is usually excellant. This time- food was cold, teapot was dirty, and toast was served burnt- so not so good
This restaurant is all about the atmosphere. You are right on the beach in a cozy classic beach environment.
Great food drinks and service!
Very good food, great service and eating on the beach with ocean view is special.
Great beachfront breakfast! Good food and Bloody Mary’s. Have been there on a chilly day and the outside dining area is covered so stays warm. Wonderful on a warm sunny day. Great place to take a visiting guest for a special CA experience.
Excellent views. Excellent service. Great tasting food and good portion sizes.
Great view of the water! Very quaint and was quiet at 8 am on a Saturday!
Lisa our server was amazing! The food was fantastic and the ambiance was fantastic! Would highly recommend to anyone!
Food was so, so and the sever, Ryan was working with too many tables! The location is special and the view of the ocean and surroundings is impeccable! Meals are not worth the price. If you want a outstanding location to eat, this is it, but if you want a great meal I suggest you go someplace else!
We really enjoyed our meal! We were seated on the patio and had a great view of the beach and ocean, and Catalina too. We had made reservations just to be safe but it looked like we didn't need to, possibly because it was a Thursday and had been raining earlier. The food was delicious!
A Perfect Place for Breakfast!!! We love to bring our out-of-town guests ... and the food is always wonderful and the service excellent!
I dearly love clam chowder, I have been warned by others not to order it at Beachcomber. But today, I decided to order it. Wow, there is a ton of salt in that dish. It was a big disappointment. The lobster sandwich was wonderful. Love that you carry ginger beer.
Always a pleasure to walk thru sand to a restaurant and dine to the sound of ocean waves. We were delighted to be on time for the raising of the cocktail flag tradition. The specialty drink list is a must choose from experience. Our waiter Max was outstanding. Blankets are a nice touch on a chilly evening. So glad they expanded - Hope this special place is here forever!
Food was great! Love the view on the beach ocean waves. Service was great and friendly.
Hard to beat an awesome view of the Pacific with great service and breakfast.
If you're looking for a place with the best view (right on the beach), great service and wonderful food, look no further. Beachcomber Cafe is it. If you can, either make reservations in advance, or plan on waiting 1-2 hours and go for a long walk on the beach. I find my blood pressure goes down about 20 points by just being there. The food and service is top notch. Try the artichoke appetizer!
Our waiter Ryan was so sweet, he helped us decide on what to order and didn’t give us a hard time at all about our food allergies etc. Food was delicious, drinks were made with fresh and unique ingredients. Ambiance was great. Worth it to note that you should arrive early to leave Ample time to take the shuttle to the restaurant since the parking lot is across PCH.
Great food, great people
We had our first anniversary dinner at this very special place. The restoration of Crystal Cove contributes a superlative ambiance which enhances all of the outstanding experiences:
Exceptional server, best calimari in SoCal, the entres where beyond delicious, and the anniversary dessert topped off a spectacular dining experience !!! I would recommend it as a top of the list !! .........Get reservations early

This is a very special place...You could not ask for a better ambience and the food is terrific...with plenty of options. Service is also excellent.
My friend is moving out of the area and this was on the bucket list of to dos! So glad we did it! Everything was terrific. I highly recommend making reservations...and it has to be at least the day before.
Great ambiance and delicious food! Nothing beats a lovely meal on the beach at sunset.

Samantha and Brandon were the best servers I have ever encountered. They deserve to run the place
You can't beat this quintessential So. Cal location. The food was very good and the service by Maximilian was five star.
Fantastic as always!
We love the beignets!! The view of the beach is incredible. It’s our family tradition every year we come from Utah.
