Taking girlfriend to Capitola for her B-Day, where to eat dinner?

We'll be spending all day at the beach and village, and we've previously been to Shadowbrook, are there any other good places to eat in Capitola for a birthday occasion? Or should we just go back to Shadowbrook? Please help, thanks!
