My wife and I came for our anniversary. Expressive! Great view! Great service! Great meal! Courteous, attentive, speedy and that view of Rockaway Beach is to die for. Oh, when we decided not to order dessert, they deliver a piece of cake all dressed up at no charge. Just WOW!

the restaurant is inside the Best Western Hotel. The decor is a bit Diner style. You have an excellent view from most tables. The large glass surrounding overlooks the beautiful Bay. We had Breakfast there once. The food was very good and liberal portions. I found it a bit on the pricey side, you had to pay for everything separate.

Stay at the hotel and had a great meal. They have a happy hour which includes dollar oysters on the have shell and discounted drinks. You can get a seat overlooking the ocean and watch the sun set.

We stopped in for a glass of wine at Happy Hour and made a meal of the wonderful appetizers offered. With plenty of seats over looking the Pacific, the sunset was beautiful. We stumbled upon this place while staying at the HI Express across the street. Would definitely go again.

Fair food, not excellent. Prices are reasonable. Music is a bit too loud. Wait staff pleasant and friendly.

Their signature drink, the Moonraker is the best moonshine martini i have ever had. The food is phenomenal with a wide variety of choices.The view you have as you sit elevated above the Pacific can not be beat. Whether is be sunshine or a stormy night the view the best. Hard to know if you should stare at the perfectly... More

Don't miss their Sunday Brunch. They have seating times at 10:00 and 12:00 and charge $44.95 per person, but it is well worth it. You will have a beautiful view of the ocean while you eat your one meal for the day (you won't need another). Feast on a wonderful Seafood buffet which includes Dungeness Crab Legs. They have plenty... More

Don't let Moonrakers' location next to a Best Western hotel deter you. It's a spacious resturaunt tiered on different levels, everyone sees the massive windows to the ocean. We got got up close and it's the widest ocean view we've seen anywhere. The waves here in Pacifica are massive, not too far from Maverick's just south a few miles. Oh... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants because it is right on the beach and the food is very good. The menu is varied so there is something for everyone's palate. You get an oceanside view at every seating. The bar and lounge is very nice as well. It is a bit pricey but what you get is well worth... More
