Sitting at the edge of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Half Moon Bay, the Moss Beach Distillery is an award-winning restaurant featuring fresh California coastal cuisine in a romantic setting with an ocean view from every table. Our Sunday brunch is a fan-favorite as is our Happy Hour every weekday from 5-7pm. The heated outdoor patio with fire pits and warm blankets provides a dog-friendly, casual setting to relax and enjoy self-service drinks and food with a spectacular ocean view. Named in the Top 100 Best Scenic View Restaurants in America by OpenTable and regularly voted by locals as a favorite restaurant for special occasions, fresh seafood, and whale watching.
At the Moss Beach Distillery we are committed to serving quality food made from quality ingredients. We use all-natural meats and poultry, wild-caught seafood, and organic vegetables whenever possible. Our fry oil is free of trans-fats. We strive to give you great food and great service in a comfortable, beautiful setting. Please let us know if we can do anything to make your time with us even more enjoyable.
Overlooking the ocean is our heated outdoor Seal Cove Patio, where we welcome all well-behaved dogs and their owners. Watch whales swim by and seals sunbathe below while snuggling in a provided cozy blanket next to one of our natural gas fire pits. The patio offers self-service food and beverages in a casual setting so you can feel free to stop in for a quick Bloody Mary or spend the day eating, drinking and listening to waves crash on the shore below.
