I've seen a lot of wine lists at different restaurants but this has to be by far the best list I've ever seen. There was a page for whites, a page for reds, and a page for reserved reds. Not only this, but these wines...More

We try to always eat at least once at the Beachcomber when in Orange County. The restaurant on the beach is GREAT, food and service is always exceptional.

Terrific location on waters edge. Service was good and suggestions by server was good. Food was very tasty and ambiance was great as you felt at home in an old style beach restaurant.

Parking is across the Highway. Take the walk through the tunnel rather than the shuttle bus. The Ahi tacos are a must and the Avocado and Lobster sandwich is awesome.

We recently asked a friend to suggest a place in the Newport Beach area for lunch. Her reply, “for ambience and food, The Beachcomber”. We were wary of walking the tunnel path but what a great find! Mahi Mahi tacos and Kobe beef burger were...More

You cannot beat the location...this place is right on the beach and has stunning views. It's amazing. But the food is average and overpriced. Highly recommend this place for cocktails and appetizers.

We visited The Beachcomber after enjoying a beautiful sunset on the beach. The restaurant has its own ceremony as the sun sets and it was such a magical, special touch that created an everlasting memory. The location of The Beachcomber can't be beat as it...More

And during the season when children are in school. We waited 20min at 11am midweek.... not bad. It's on the register of historic buildings/ businesses. Park across the street and they validate.

There was no one there when we arrived around 8:00. By 8:30 there were four additional families. Ordering food doesn’t take long but getting the food takes longer than “normal” because it’s all made to order.
