    Generic tourist food. Nothing exciting. But location and vibes are great.

    Went on the night of the UFC fight - food came a few plates at a time for a group of 4 and we were missing an additional item …waters weren’t filled consistently and we had to ask. Food was really good so that made up for the service.

    My colleagues and I were looking for a relaxing and fun place to unwind after our meeting and we found it in the Surf City Ale House. We enjoyed burgers, salads and fish tacos. The group really enjoyed the guacamole! The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, which made for a great overall experience.

    Pub food. I had the ribs, which were mediocre. The beer was flat so they gave me a bottle instead. The ambiance was good with plenty of outdoor seating. And the service was also good. The waiter was friendly and prompt. It looks like a pretty good place to watch a game.

    Food was fresh and tasty but the service needs work. Was there during UFC match and they appeared to be way understaffed.

    We were seated outside because the inside was so loud we couldn't hear eachother. The hostess didn't recognize Open Table's reservation. Service was spotty. Not a great experience.

    Great location. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Our waitress was great! However they were short staffed and had to wait before getting drinks and food. Would recommend however.

    The nachos were gross. Soggy with velveta melted cheese? Really? Most of the food was pretty bland.

    The food is fresh and tasty. We had nachos, calamari, pasta, fish tacos and French dips. The service is kind of slow though.

    The food is delicious at the Surf City Ale House. The vibe can feel like an upscale sports bar with a menu which is superior to what is typically offered in similar bars. Great value, great service. Great for large families are a small table for 2.

    We had a family dinner here to welcome relatives from Northern California. Everyone enjoyed their food and the selection of beer and cocktails. I did have to ask the staff to turn on the Ducks game in favor of an out of town NHL game.

    We celebrated Christmas Eve with my family and my sister’s family- there were 11 of us there for a couple of hours- the staff were amazing!! So accommodating! We asked if the bar tender could make us “Baby Yoda” margaritas and they were happy to!! They were fantastic!! The food was great and we had the best time!! Would definitely come back again!!

    Too loud TV broadcast echoed throughout entire restaurant. Waitress visits were few and far between. Dressing for ahi salad more appropriate for fish tacos.
