About

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 www.miramarbeachrestaurant.com.

It was closed! It would’ve been nice if they could reflect that on the app.

Great waiter, nice menu. Outside and cold, couldn’t quite gather under the nice space heater due to spacing. Onion soup great, prime rib special not good. Replaced with linguini carbonara, really good. Paella decent rice, very nice fish. Do recommend.

Lovely restaurant across the street from the beach. Outdoor dining during COVID was well managed. Now on lockdown I think, but probably still take out and go to the beach!

It was a gorgeous day at the beach. Big waves. Blue skies and yummy food. Service was great too. It’s a got-to spot my niece and I like to spend time at ... especially when we’re taking an extended lunch!

Originally named the Miramar Beach Inn, after 30 years of my patronage, I will have to commit to memory the slight name change to The Miramar Beach Restaurant.
The restaurant has a special menu on Thursdays, which has added to it's popularity.
This past Thursday's special was crab cioppino, served with a crab bisque, and french bread to soak up the bouillabaisse. After, for dessert was a small slice of apple pie.
Given the Covid-19 orders, we ate under a heat lamp on the patio outside.
The restaurant has done a great job "dressing up" the patio for relaxed dining.
Nature cooperated in giving us an amazing painted sky sunset, and shut the winds off, resulting in a rather mild evening for the coastside.

Service was attentive, friendly, helpful, and very good. The crab cioppino was one of the better crab cioppinos that I have had, and included enough seafood. Miramar Beach Inn location, is as good as it gets....especially on that night.
The one piece missing, sitting outside, is being able to enjoy listening to the music provided by Terry, the pianist, who is rather accomplished, and will take requests.

Thanks to the folks at Miramar Beach Restaurant, for a wonderful evening.....I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Be well,

TS

Servers cater to hometown regulars and all but ignore everyone else. We’ve been going there for years, and it has always been a bit snobbish. But the food is good, so it became our go to spot. We visit about 6 times a year. Our most recent visit was the worst service yet and we both decided that we are going to look for a different “go to” spot next time.

This is the best place to watch the the sunset
The outdoor patio faces the ocean and you watch the sun set as you are eating.

We waited for out table for over an hour. When we arrived we were presented with an option to get immediately a table or wait for 20 minutes and get the table we want (with fire pit). This turn to me an hour + where we were promised that that table will be ready, that the time limit will be enforced on the people that ate at the table, etc. This changed 4-5 times, had we were communicated the reality we would have made other choices.

The seating restrictions due to COVID regulations has not diminished the quality of food or their service at the table. The filet and the calamari steak dinners were both excellent.

Worst meal I have ever had there. Delivered a steak I ordered as medium, it was still mooing. It was not cooked (raw) inside. I had to send it back. It took 15 minutes and then it came back well done and burned. Not to mention the vegetables were barely cooked, might as well as put raw veggies on my plate. At least the mashed potatoes were good for $41 dollars, not a good value...waiter should have taken something off my bill for the terrible meal, instead they lost a long-time customer. Oh well for them.

I’d have to say that this was probably one of the best meals ever. We started with perfect crab cakes that were light and flaky with a delicious sauce. We had the house Pinot Grigio which paired nicely. We sat on the patio with a gas fire table and propane heater behind so we were very cozy. Then for dinner I had the scallops and boyfriend had the Scottish salmon. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Service was just right and everyone practiced safe distancing and mask protocol. Will definitely return.

I had the filet mignon and asked for the mushrooms that go on the burger. Just put the entire meal over the top. Had mashed potatoes and vegetables. The apple pie for dessert was amazing. And we even treated ourselves to a Mai tai. Along with the sunset, the fire pits, the lights and the piano player it was a perfect evening.
