Not coming back and wouldn't recommend. Even with a reservation for Mothers Day, my daughter and I weren't allowed a quiet table on the porch where there were several reserved tables that sat unused till we left. They sat us on a picnic table set on uneven ground outside, along with the other Asians, I noticed.
Never mind that--I was just happy to sit after a 2 hour drive from the east bay.
Server was nice and cheery. Calamari is cold and pitiful, no flavor at all, not even the batter, just the taste of cornstarch. Same with the poke and the fish taco.
Surf spot? with no view of the water, just the parking lot.
This has become our weekly go-out spot. Great for kids. Great for adults. Lots of TV's inside, fire pit outside. A bit breezy, but sometimes that perfect. Live entertainment sometimes too. The new menu and chef have made this place a winner for us!
We love the tots - they're so delicious, and you can get them with nearly anything, or a side order. The salads and other foods are really good, too. Service is casual and very good - the servers are super friendly and easy going. Place is a tad loud, all hard surfaces, and a tad cold (even inside) but overall casual dining in a fun setting. We go often b/c it's a good, easy family friendly place. And again - the tots!!!
Fun place, it was to cold to eat outside but great patio. Had the surf burger, really rich, fries were great.
We were not monitored sad
SurfSpot always has reliable food and a good wine list. It's a great place for a group that likes beer, wine, or cocktails. The food seems slightly less good than it has been in the past but it's not terrible, just not as good as it has been. This is a GREAT place to dine with a kid. The staff is friendly to children and there is a large area to run around when they get board. But, bring back the crayons!
There were so many different servers taking care of our meal and several of the meals came out incorrectly! The first guy dropped half of one of our appetizers, but served the rest anyway and did not follow up. None of the main dishes came out at the same time and we waited a long time for our wine. After so many mistakes, one meal was supposed to be on a gluten free bun, but we were not at all confident they got it right, so sent it back a few times, trying to get confirmation that the order was correct. It was extremely inefficient, but everyone was very nice.
Fun as always. Thank you!
Great flavors, biiig portions. We noticed right away that they have a new chef - BRAVO! The fish tacos were awesome, meat fell right off the bone, kalbi app was fantastic. My side salad was a great size and so fresh! I almost stopping coming here, so glad we gave it another try! Will definitely be back - with friends!
I do like Surf Spot and I'll be back. However, it's sad to hear that they've hired a new chef and took off my favorite item on the menu which is their meatloaf sandwich.
