“Great breakfast place”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Great place for breakfast. Right on the beach. I'm a local so I try to go when I know it won't be too busy. The Beachcomber is on the list of places to go whenever I have friends in from out of town. Tide pools nearby, and a walk on the beach after eating is wonderful.

“It's all about the view”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Neat, quaint beach side restaurant on Crystal Cove state beach. The food is better than you would expect and the historic beach bum atmosphere is neat. But you come here to stare at the waves and watch the Dolphins play right in front of you. Just kick back, relax and let the world float by.

“The food is very good! Loved the ambiance at dinner. Seating is a bit squiched.”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

We had 2 breakfast meals as well as a large family dinner at the beachcomber. All the food was very good and the service was great. If you go for breakfast try the Macadamia Nut Pancakes. This is served with a thick coconut, macadamia nut syrup, so you might want to order normal syrup on the side as it did not appeal to my sister in law but I loved it.
Family friendly although it is very loud at times and the seating is very squished. Make sure to get your name on the list or reserve early for Dinners. Watch for the dolphins in the Bay as they often swim past all day.

“Hard to get closer to the water than here!”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

A difficult place to get to, but once you're there, and if you're in the dining area, you will be as close to the waves as the California Coastal Commission allows. Drinks and food here are very pricey, and there is almost always a wait, no matter what season you visit in.
