Best Beach Restaurent in OC, right on the sand can’t beat it
Outstanding in every way. This was my second visit and was every bit as good as the first time. A definite place to go when I’m in Newport Beach.
The food was fantastic as always. The service was phenomenal. The ambience of sitting outside and seeing the ocean was above and beyond. Beigneis were still to die for.
Always good food and great atmosphere. A special outing whenever we.
We love this place. Food and location are amazing. Service is perfect. Thank you .
Wonderful beachside table with an varied menu for breakfast. We started out with Mimosas snd their beignets. The beignets melted in your mouth and were light and feathery pillow! Just amazing. All meals were beautifully presented and tasted every bit as delicious!
A wonderful, long overdue date with hubby. Beachcomber is always a great place to be at. Wish there were more time slot options. 7:30am was too early. 😝
Great food, great atmosphere, great service! Absolutely love the beachcomber!
Great food, great view and great service. Oscar, you are the best. Every waitress and waiter should be taught how to do it right.
Amazing experience! I would recommend everyone try this restaurant. Great memories will be had by all. Staff is incredible and the food as well as ambiance could not have been better.
It was great! Went for my mom birthday
Had a reservation at 5pm and was running a little late. I called the restaurant and the male that I spoke with told me not to worry about it. That there’s a 15 min grace period and if I show up later than 15 mins then they would put me on top of the waiting list, if any. I also told him we were celebrating a birthday and figured he would’ve noted all of this in my reservation. I get there and the female hostess had no clue about anything. She didn’t know who picked up the phone and told me that. She struggled to check me in and finally got sat. I told her again that we were celebrating a birthday but I guess she was still confused. No one relayed the message to our server and we were so over it that we just didn’t care anymore. Sad that we couldn’t celebrate a special day at one of our favorite restaurants when we’re finally able to go dining.
A most perfect place to dine on the beach...either on thecovered porch or under umbrellas on the sand. The oceanfront view and surrounding mountains and historic beach colony are the perfect frame!
Haven't been here for about 8 years! It is still as special a place as I remember. Fantastic location on the beach, great food, great service (by Oscar). Take the shuttle or a fun walk from the parking lot. Note, you'll be walking in sand so wear appropriate shoes.
Loved the new outdoor dining set up along the beach. the food is also amazing. We love this restaurant! Go and support them.
Beautiful setting, beachfront and great food and drinks.
We had a very good time. Our server Danielle was great!
We saw Whales and pods of Dolphin.
Great service and ambiance.
Had a beautiful morning with my mother by the beach.
Love love this place! Never disappoints. Service is friendly and food always good tasting and quick. You can’t beat the beautiful view year around either. Always a highlight during our beach vacations; especially with our kids years ago.
Simply amazing! Wonderful service and delicious food!
Beautiful location on the beach
We had the most perfect evening! Our table was on the sand, candlelight with heaters. The view to the crashing waves and clear enough to see Catalina ! Everything perfect! The staff was excellent and friendly! We just got engaged moments before dinner at sunset so the perfect steering! They even brought us a special dessert! Food was delicious! My favorite place!
Birthday celebration. I’ve been coming to Beachcomber 30 years. Try to always be here for a birthday dinner. They had tables set up on the patio and in the sand for safe social distancing. Everything was perfect except for being told a few times that our limit for sitting at the table was 1 1/2 hours and then being reminded of this at the end of our meal. We were all conscious the first two times we were told this, being reminded two more times was over kill. This certainly didn’t take away from the wonderful food, service or views we enjoyed.
Another amazing lunch with friends! They have a new set up with a few tables directly on the beach. It was really a nice set up and you cant beat the view. Food was amazing and they allowed us to stay past the 90 minute time limit to finish our bottle of wine. Cant wait to come back again soon!
Every staff member at the beachcomber, goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed
I have been there three times this month for breakfast. The food is outstanding and so are the breakfast cocktails.
Great place with delicious food. Definitely a must do and must return. Great service. Jesus was the best.
This was my first time to the Beach Comber Cafe. We were seated quickly and the waiter was very friendly and attentive. Can’t beat the view or the atmosphere. The only thing that my kids were upset about was wanting something from the dinner menu and we were on the lunch menu. They didn’t understand that not all restaurants offer both lunch and dinner options at the same time. But they enjoyed what they got off the lunch menu. No complaints! Everyone enjoyed their food! We will be back for sure! Thank you!
We have eaten at this restaurant many times, usually for dinner. Today we had lunch there. We shared the ahi salad and the fish and chips. Both were delicious. Our favorite dessert is the banana cream pie, which is done as a French bakery would make it.
We had a wonderful morning brunch here. It was beautiful and the food was delicious! We loved the pancakes and corned beef hash.
No fish special which was a bummer and no blankets or candle on our table ..
The service is great, location is amazing, food is gourmet and is fairly priced for its quality. Will be back soon!
Our waitress, April was the best! Everything was perfect.
Wonderful Dinner Special:
Details Mignon and Lobster Tail
Wine reduction sauce
Simply amazing. Love this place always
Food was delicious, beach setting was breathtaking. Will totally visit again. ☺️
Came for brunch for the first time since Covid. Service and food were as fantastic as I remember and they have the Covid protocols nicely in place. This place is great.
Glad they waited an extra 8 minutes for us. Was our anniversary. Good food. But the crepe was undercooked. Little chilly with the outdoor seating. Great location and service.
