To our valued guests –
Since our popular Seal Cove patio fills up quickly, we recommend making reservations 3 days prior to your visit. We have also created additional outdoor seating by closing off the bluff end of our parking lot which offers the most spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.
As a precautionary measure, our staff will serve your food in covered containers. During pre-pandemic times, dishes and silverware were our norm but during these precarious times, we want to be as safe as possible. We will return to our norm as soon as possible.
We are following the health and sanitary guidelines of the San Mateo County Health Department, and other local and government authorities. Please also be aware that gatherings pose a heightened risk of COVID-19 transmission, and that older adults and individuals with existing health conditions are at particularly serious risk if they contract COVID-19 and should not attend. Please practice social distancing at all times.
Thank you for your support and patience during this difficult time. Looking forward to seeing you again.

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.
