    Duke's Huntington Beach: Beachside Dining!

    by charlenemixa Updated Jun 17, 2014

    The food was good and our waiter was excellent. It was pricey so be prepared. Having been to Duke's in Hawaii, this was a much "quieter" version. It was convenient to our hotel and is next to the pier. The restaurant is on the beach side close to the start of the pier. It is named for Duke Kahanamoku, the famous surfer from Hawaii, who was also renowned for his "aloha spirit."

    The Heart of Palm Salad and fresh fish selections re very good. Again, the service was excellent.
    After or before dinner it is great to walk out on the Pier for some great ocean views, sunsets, and scenery.

    Zimzala at Shorebreak Hotel: Great Breakfast!

    by charlenemixa Written Jun 17, 2014

    We only had breakfast and drinks at the Zimzala. The breakfast was excellent! We loved the smoked salmon and the smoked salmon panini. A nice change from the normal breakfast menu of eggs and bacon.

    The bar is fun and unique with ergonomic stools. Great service

  • Mr Ps Espresso Italiano Caffe: Authentic Espresso Bar in the OC

    by HBSteve88 Written Nov 21, 2009

    This is a great little espresso bar right on Beach in the Big Lots center. Cheers style bar style where everyone gets to know everyone. Unlike any other coffee shop, and using only the best beans and machines. Come on down when you can, they open early. The best drinks in Orange County hands down.

    Favorite Dish: One of my favorite drinks (and usually anyone I let try mine) is the Banana Split Frappe blended drink... yum

    Dukes: Steaks Seafood

    by kenstan Written Jul 23, 2008
    view from restaurant

    Dukes is next to the pier and has good steaks and seafood. Good view of ocean. There is also another restaurant under Dukes but don't know the name as it is always changing. Last I looked it was Asian Fuson. Both these restaurants have prime locations and you are paying more for the view than the food but both do have good food.

    Favorite Dish: everything

    Basilico's Pasta E Vino: Fantastic Italian

    by cricketdog Written Sep 19, 2007

    This tiny restaurant in a strip mall off a busy street is not a place someone would drive by and say, "I've got to try that place some day." It is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. The pasta is fantastic here! I always get the Mezza Mezza -- a huge bowl filled half-and-half with fettucine alfredo and penne in red sauce. The meals come with salad and warm bread, straight out of the oven.

    They have several daily specials with fish, beef, or a large salad.

    It is usually crowded and you'll have to wait outside for your table so dress warmly during the cooler months (although they do provide some blankets for you). It is always worth the wait.

    Favorite Dish: The Mezza Mezza!

    Kiku: The freshest sushi in Huntington Beach

    by HBLocal Written Sep 17, 2007

    My husband and I have been going to Kiku for over 10 years now. you can find us there at least once a week. They are the best. The portions are more than generous. no one has fresher fish. Husband and wife run the place - and the husband is the one behind the sushi bar and handling the cooked food - so be patient. This is not the place to go if you are in a hurry, but it certainly is the place to go if you want to hang out with locals and want the best sushi in town.

    And to find out about more local restaurants, make sure to check out the site all about 'where the locals go' in Huntington Beach: www.thelocalhb.com

    Favorite Dish: all the sushi orders, but the best is his Poki Bowl.

    They have a really big menu and everything I've had is pretty good. The staff is great though. Fun sushi chefs. Owners/managers are really nice too. Got two free bottles of sake last time I was there for no apparent reason. Gotta like that.

    Ruby's Diner: End of the Pier

    by rmlopez74 Written Apr 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ruby's Diner

    Ruby's Diner is a pretty decent little joint. They have a few of them around Orange County, and the burgers are great, the shakes even better. So a Ruby's is a good choice for grub as it is. But then add to that a Ruby's at the end of Huntington Pier, well, what more do you need...

    One caution. This place gets pretty packed on the weekends, so hit a weekday. Also, the view is much better during the day. Since the ocean is essentially pitch black at night, you can't see much through the glare on the windows.

    Favorite Dish: Good old fashioned cheeseburger, and whatever shake they have on special that month.

    Huntington Beach Beer Company: Come for the food, stay for the Beer...

    by rmlopez74 Written Apr 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very casual, relaxed atmosphere, kind of like Huntington Beach. Typical Brewpub type of fair, but better than most as far as quality is concerned. Pretty good view of the street below depending on where you sit. Plenty of TV's to watch whatever sport you're interested in. But the real reason to come here is the beer. Locally brewed varieties on tap. At $3.50 a pint, definitely worth walking up a flight a stairs.

    Favorite Dish: They have food...? My favorite is the Huntington Beach Blonde. It's an award winning malt. Nice, light, very tasty.
