Haven't been here in years but only because I no longer live in CA. Just had to stop in for the chowder. It's so much better than what I got on the East Coast last year.

Went to Gladstone’s Malibu with friends last night Wednesday, October 24 The service was lovely everyone was really nice and the food was inedible. My mistake in not sending everything back to the kitchen, will not make that mistake again nor will I repeat Gladstone’s

There is nothing better than having lunch on the beach without the sand! Gladstone's, where Sunset meets PCH is a great place to take my friend on her first trip to California. The food is much better than most places on the beaches of California....More
