Just steps from the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Coast Grill has been a hip and artistic trip for your senses for over a decade. Feast on extraordinary Pacific Coast Cuisine in visually stunning surroundings. Imbibe from our vast selection of classic cocktails and tequilas, numerous ice cold draught and bottled beers and award winning wine list featuring small production Pacific Coast wines. The Pacific Coast Grill is the place to see and be seen and most of all, to enjoy. House specialties include Lobster Tacos, Applewood smoked baby back ribs, Brick Grilled Free Range Chicken, Blackened Seared Ahi and the best fresh-ground Steak Burgers and ‘fresh-juice’ Margaritas around. “The Pacific Coast Grill, its floors inlaid with free-form murals and its walls festooned with wild sculptures, does not look like the same old place around the corner. It’s artsy, in a Pacific Coast style that makes it quite contemporary, quite lively and rather a lot of fun.” David Nelson, Food Writer
