Decent seafood lunch AND dinner malibu or santa monica?

  • j

Any suggestions for a fun environment and decent seafood where one can meet for lunch and stay through dinner; around $30 per person or less with atmosphere of ocean if possible? Will be in town meeting one group of for lunch, one for dinner. The Reel Inn Malibu is open from 11 AM, but messages on this board are more negative than positive about the food. I am stumped. Need a place with inside dining in case of rain and wine and beer. Malibu Seafood not appropriate for this situation.
Thanks for any suggestion.

    I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but Tony's Taverna in Malibu is fun and delicious -- some of the best Greek food I've ever had. It's not exactly a seafood restaurant, but their seafood is wonderful -- the charcoal grilled baby octopus appetizer is amazing.

    1. I would suggest Moonshadows on the Pacific Coast Highway, or the Charthouse. Both have excellent food, are next to the ocean, and have indoor dining. Another alternative is Gladstones, also on PCH, with a more party atmosphere.
