Experience The Surf Spot

For many years Chef/Owner Derek Burns nurtured his idea of creating a restaurant unique to the Northern California coastal town of Pacifica, where people could hang out, eat great food, and celebrate the adventurous outdoor spirit that is so much a part of life in Northern California.

Food Philosophy

Global Inspiration, Local Ingredients

  • Creative, innovative dishes alongside familiar, hearty, comforting fare
  • Ingredients that delve deeply into the bounty of Northern California, sourced as close to home as possible
  • Lots of wines available by the glass, beer on tap, and creative cocktails

We are bringing culinary adventure to Pacifica while keeping it relaxed and real.

Community Philosophy

The Way We Look At It

Fine dining can be relaxed and fun, too! Our unique space boasts a fun-and-funky beach vibe along with our indoor and outdoor dining, fire pits, rolling lawns, a volleyball court, live music and private party spaces. Join us in celebrating the great Northern California outdoors adventure.

We also believe in giving back to our community. Currently we are holding monthly fundraisers for local Pacifica schools.
