We have finally been given the green light to open our patio as of Saturday, June 6th!!! We are looking forward to seeing you all again!
Patio Open Monday through Sunday, 12pm - last reservation at 7:15pm

The safety of our guests and staff is of the utmost importance so we want to assure you that the rules and regulations set forth by the San Mateo County Health Department’s Social Distancing Protocol will be strictly adhered to.

Some of the changes to expect:
  • Reservations are highly recommended - with the required distance of 6 feet between tables, our seating will be very limited.
  • Check in with the front desk (through front door) upon arrival. We will issue you a number that will be required before seating.
  • An hour and a half will be allotted per table. This is a tough rule for us to implement as our patio has always been first come, first serve but with the required table distancing limiting our available tables and not having an option with inside seating, this is our way of making sure we give as many guests as possible the opportunity to enjoy the patio.
  • Servers will not be utilized as of yet so orders will be placed at our reception area. We have 6 foot markings at the entrance to remind guests to maintain distance.
  • For your safety, we have chosen to continue to serve your food in take out containers. Our runners will make sure that your orders are delivered to you and that your area is cleaned and sanitized before being seated.
  • Alcohol sales must be accompanied with a meal as required by the Alcoholic Beverage Control.
  • Staff will be required to wear masks and gloves.
  • Hand sanitizer bottles will be set at each table.
  • Guests are asked to keep their masks on while ordering and being guided to their seats.

As an alternative to the patio, guests may call in orders for pick up. We will give you the option to take your payment information over the phone so that upon arrival, your order and receipt can be delivered to your car. Please call us at 650.728.0220 to place your order for curbside pickup. Hours for pickup are Mon-Sun 12-7:30pm.

Overlooking the Pacific 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 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.

There are no reservations for our patio seating. Enjoy self-service food and beverages from our upstairs or downstairs bar. The full menu is always available on the patio but must be ordered from the upstairs bar. If you are interested in full service dining, we are happy to accommodate you in one of our upstairs dining rooms.

Our Seal Cove Patio overlooks the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and is a premier spot to watch the sun set into the horizon.

We have been featured in AAA's VIA Magazine as one of 16 spots named Best Pet Destinations in the West. We are honored by this accolade and happy to live up to that reputation by providing water bowls, doggie beds, and even a Dog Food Menu. Our Doggie Menu features items such as grilled hot dogs, mini burger patties, and even a skirt steak for those really good dogs. We take pride in our love for dogs and strive to provide an incomparable setting for you to spend the day with your pooch.

"Great experience! The staff was great, had a lot of fun.... even had food for me on their "dog menu". I got to eat scrambled eggs and my owners had a great fish dish that they shared with me and a steak sandwich. I would recommend this place to all my friends and for them to bring their owners. We got to cuddle under the blankets they provide near their fire pits. 5 star experience for us. I was even entered in their cutest dog contest.... which I'm gonna rock!!!"

Please note: Due to California Health Code, there are absolutely NO DOGS allowed inside of the restaurant, with the exception of service dogs. If your dog is aggressive or not friendly with other dogs, please do not bring them onto our patio. Aggressive dogs and dogs not under control of their owners at ALL times will be asked to leave. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
