We're always in search of family-friendly, high quality restaurants near our favorite beaches where we can end a great day at the beach with a satisfying dinner for the family. We don't care about the view, but the place should have an informal atmosphere where our post-beach attire with salty and sandy bodies would be acceptable. However, the kitchen should be all-business and provide high quality and competent food. Our family's favorite beaches in So CA are Crystal Cove, Laguna, Zuma, and Santa Monica. We've been going to the Reel Inn after Zuma and Santa Monica and Honda-Ya in Tustin after Laguna and Crystal Cove but would like to have more options.
Thanks for sharing your favorites.
