Miramar Beach Restaurant

The historic coastside restaurant right next door (formerly a Prohibition-era speakeasy), serves up American fare with a gorgeous ocean view. Miramar lights the waves outside as dusk falls, adding to the romance of this classic coastside experience. Warm up with their outdoor fire pits as you enjoy the sounds of the sea.

Moss Beach Distillery

It’s a nice place to eat, but we know why you’ll love this historic restaurant: the Seal Cove patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Sit around an outdoor fireplace, grab a blanket, and watch the sunset. You might see a sunbathing seal down below on the beach, or on the rare occassion, a passing whale.

Pasta Moon

We’ve loved Pasta Moon from way back. Elegant service, excellent hand-made, hand-cut pastas and seafood, game, Prime meats and poultry. The San Francisco Chronicle has called it "One of the Top 15 Best Italian Restaurants in the Bay Area" for good reason.

It’s Italia

Extensive specialty pizza menu, pasta and seafood and meat selections from a rotisserie and mesquite grill. Live jazz on Fridays and Saturdays: check their music schedule to confirm dates and times.

Seafood / Sushi

 

Sam’s Chowder House

Sams_Wine_Spectator_Award With ocean views and a outside seating (covered and uncovered), Sam’s reminds you that you’re on the coast. And so does the menu. New England style seafood feels right at home in Half Moon Bay.

Website  |  google-pinpoint Google+

 

 

Barbara’s Fish Trap

A very popular, casual "shack" in the harbor known for its fish and chips and creamy New England clam chowder. There is sometimes a wait for indoor seating, but on a nice day the walk-up window (with a limited menu) is great for a quick bite outside, where tables may be more available.
