“We had our wedding there this weekend, and it was perfect. Bev was so sweet, professional and gave us a great deal and the location couldn’t have been more perfect. Not only is it a spectacular setting but we met there, so it was so romantic.  Most places hear the word “wedding” and they get ready to take you for a big expensive ride. Not the Moss Beach Distillery. They are very reasonable and fair, and the location is unbeatable — ocean front patio with firepits. My guests raved about the food (we did the bottomless mimosa brunch) and chose the skirt steak, panko crusted sole and the pork tacos. The pastries were fresh and amazing. The service was solicitous at all times.  I would highly recommend doing your 
wedding here!”

–Jeanne and Todd

“I just want to tell you what a wonderful job you and your staff did. You helped to make my daughter’s special day extra special and I thank you with all my heart! I can’t believe how perfect everything was from the view, the restaurant, the people, the staff, decorations, bride and groom, family, the whole package! …. Again, I want to thank you so much, it would not have been the same without you!”

“We had our wedding here and I would strongly recommend it as a venue for your wedding or special occasion. The setting is absolutely gorgeous. It has the best view of all comparable venues in the area. We used the patio for our ceremony followed by brunch in the main dining room over looking the beach below. The staff is beyond helpful. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Bev and the crew. The food is lovely and our glasses were always filled. This is a very special place. If you are looking for a historic building with an incredible story, a superb view, great food, and fantastic service this is the place.”

“We just wanted to thank you and the staff at the Distillery for helping to make our daughter’s wedding and reception on July 8 a beautiful event. Bev, thank you for all your kind assistance and flexibility—your calm manner was reassuring. All the details we had talked about really came together quite nicely. Also, please extend our deep appreciation to the staff. The wait staff was particularly friendly and accommodating, and the food was excellent! The Distillery is a lovely location, and we hope to go back sometime soon. Thank you again!”

–Jean & Karl for Kristin & Roger

“The Moss Beach Distillery is an EXCELLENT location for a venue. The food is FANTASTIC—everyone mentioned that this was the best they’ve had in years; the staff is OUTSTANDING and the ambiance is PHENOMINAL. There is a little history with this location as well, but nothing harmful or bad. They also are dog friendly so for casual dining if you’d like to bring your 4-legged child with you, it is permitted. This is our location for our anniversary + every time we’re in Half Moon Bay visiting.”

–Lady Kahoona

“I just wanted to let you know all of us had a wonderful and memorable wedding at the Distillery. Staff was very accommodating throughout the whole event and we appreciate being able to use the dining room at the last minute for the ceremony. We had so many guests tell us how wonderful the place was and that the atmosphere was so warm and friendly. Again, Thank You!”
