The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and décor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side. Check out our website at

Great view. Excellent food. Very tasty bloody Mary. Highly recommended. Only complaint - parking is difficult. They have complimentary valet but the guy was totally incompetent.

I usually love this place but the last couple times the food was disappointing, and the very last time this past weekend it was surprisingly bad. The artichoke cakes appetizer were really mushy, unlike what we're used to with these. The hamburger was not done very well which I could have requested change but didn't have time, and the coleslaw was unusually void of much taste. My niece got fish and chips and thought the fish was a little chewy, the chaser salad was very good.

Service was excellent and as always the view is spectacular and the main reason I would continue to recommend though I'd probably recommend something simple like appetizers.

We ordered 2 filet mignon plates both medium. One was done way past medium well and way too much char, the other was bleeding. Both had what seemed like no seasoning of any kind. When I'm paying this high price for a filet, I would have at least expected them to be cooked the way I ordered, or at minimum, both cooked the same. Service was very good and the location can't be beat, but very unhappy with the meal.

Two couples enjoyed a pre-theater dinner. Friendly waiter, good wine and delicious meal. Incomparable ocean view. Marvelous pianist- always great. Diners can count on a comfortable ambiance.

This is a great restaurant with a great view of the ocean. Terry Disley was also excellent on the piano and very friendly. Our server was a little inattentive, but it didn't take away from the experience too much.

We has the Thursday night special (surf & turf) it was very good. The scenic view was beautiful.
Only complaint is it gets quite noisey and hard to hear Terry at the piano.

We had the Thursday night special. The lobster was so sweet. The steak was perfectly done even the mashed potatoes and green beans were great.

Excellent experience! Watched the sunset over a glass of wine and live piano at the bar. Can be crowded, so best to make reservations. Definitely will come back!

My wife and I just ate there today, mid afternoon. We ordered the crab cake appetizer, which was good and we felt like we were off to a promising start. However, we both ordered the lobster tail sandwich and it became very clear what we were served was not lobster, it did not have the texture of lobster, nor the delicate flavor. Whatever the white fish was it was smothered or steeped in some kind of pepper soaked marinate that just was overwhelming and lingering. The desserts were fine, and the sorbet I had alleviated the awfulness of that sauce. But only for a time, as I sit here writing this I can still taste it, yuck. An awful lot of nerve charging $27 a piece for something like that. The service was fine, and I tipped the young waitress, not her fault. I paid the full bill, but we'll never go there again.

Booked it from Colorado for Valentine's Day based on reviews, and weren't a bit disappointed. Drove down from Fisherman's Wharf mid-afternoon, easy drive, had a window table overlooking the bay. Beautiful location to watch the sunset, outstanding service (thanks Valerie!), excellent food, no rush, no pressure, just a great evening.

We love miramar and the food was delicious!! The ambience can’t be beat . The only thing I can say about the service was I wish our server checked on us more

Hard to find...even with GPS. But worth the search. Son had the calamari steak. He woofed it down and licked the plate. (No, he didn't do that, but he did say it was good.) I had the pepper steak (au poivre). Best ever, and that's one of my favorite dishes. It was very tender and basted in a flavorful sauce that was tasty. Portions were full, neither of us had room for desert.

Highly recommended, but figure out how to get there before leaving the house.

Always a great time. Food is excellent and the setting could not be better. love the dog friendly patio and the people watching from the windows with the ocean just beyond. Magical location

Love the ambience! Terrific view of the ocean. Always a “go to” spot to dine in Half Moon Bay.

You need to train the hostess Inside resturaunt were 2 girls, they look very unhsopy and had a rude attitude! They need to be trained on been Cortouse , Welcoming , carry a smile and be approachable! They ruined our mood for our Valentine lunch. I did not complain and report this to the manager because I didn’t want to make abig deal in front of my date. But definitely we will not return their and will advise our family and friends not go as well.
