The Best Restaurants in Huntington Beach

When you’re in Surf City USA, it’s hard to pick just one option from the incredible variety of restaurants in Huntington Beach - any local’s list of the best restaurants in Huntington Beach will include everything from well-known fine dining experiences to Surf City’s best-kept secret breakfast spots and coffee shops

Take a seat in the dining room at Watertable, an upscale restaurant and gastrobar attached to the Hyatt Regency beach resort, for artisanal craft cocktails and seasonal American classics. Or stop by Duke’s, a local favorite for Hawaiian fare served up in a surf culture-inspired beach bungalow setting - and for a Huntington Beach classic, get Duke’s famous Hula Pie - a decadent macadamia-and-chocolate treat you won’t soon forget! Grab a seat on Ola Mexican Kitchen’s outdoor beach patio for lunch and order tacos with fresh-made tortillas, and then wrap up the day with fresh seafood at Captain Jack’s Prime Rib & Seafood Restaurant, a family-owned spot known for its Alaskan King Crab Legs and a great dinner spot.

For authentic Mexican food, Avila’s El Ranchito is a can’t miss - and on Tuesdays, you can even sample margaritas made with local produce! And no Surf City USA hangout would be complete without a meal with an ocean view: drive down Southern California’s Pacific Coast Highway and stop by Pacific City for outdoor dining at one of the destination’s many local restaurants with views of the Pacific Ocean. 

No matter where your Huntington Beach travels take you, you can’t go wrong - around every corner is a brand-new culinary experience you’ll want to return to every day.
