Restaurant to take Iowan in Half Moon Bay?
I'll be meeting a friend visiting from Iowa for a weekday lunch in Half Moon Bay. A restaurant with good, moderately priced food and an ocean view would be ideal.
Pasta Moon will be my backup plan if we can't find a decent oceanfront place.
I think you may have to go for either view or food. Navio has both but it is at a Ritz Carlton hotel and prices are on the high side. Moss Beach Distillery has great views but pedestrian food. Pasta Moon is fine and there area few nice lunch places in Downtown Half Moon Bay. I think your best option is Sam's Chowder House. Water view, great seafood and open for lunch

Miramar Beach Inn Restaurant is a great place and on the water.Moss Beach Distillery is realyl a great place too, on the water and it has a ghost. Sams Chowder house (I havent tried it) is always busy but I havent heard great reviews.

If the weather is good, how about a picnic? Get some goodies at New Leaf Market and sit on the beach.
