    by Scandic Written Dec 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yummy Wahoo's. I love this place. The best fish tacos and teriyaki stuff. Cannot beat any Wahoo's. Cute staff and nice decorating. For a week long staying at HB, I would eat at Wahoo's seven times.

    Real surfer food. Real feeling. Beach Life. All night long.

    Favorite Dish: Taco's Salad with teriyaki fish.

    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.

    by HBLocal Written Aug 26, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Slow Fish Cal-Korean cusine - Stop by and enjoy the delectable sushi, the fresh local fish and seafood at this charming casual cafe situated in in the heart of Huntington Beach. Dishes are designed and prepared to be savored leisurely in honor of the Slow Food Movement. Enjoy sake pairing dinners, a prixe fixe menu or express lunch. Don't forget to try the Fat-Avo, an "apple" of seared albacore covered in avacado slices - one of their signature dishes.

    Favorite Dish: Besides the "Fat Avo", their seared tuna salad is right up there. In fact, everything on the menu is superb.

    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.

    by Scandic Written Dec 3, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the summer, the weather at HB is so warm that the smoothie is a perfect lunch. Yummy yum yum. I bought a fresh smoothie from JJ every day. It is conveniently located right next to pier, close to Jack's.

    Try to chill out with their Banana Berry or Strawberry Nirvana. Oops. I am getting to nirvana by just thinking of those....:P

    Favorite Dish: Strawberry Nirvana or Berry Fullfilling....large thanks.

    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

    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.

    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!
