The Beachcomber at Crystal Cove provides ocean front dining in the Historic District of the Crystal Cove State Park with breath taking views of the Newport Coastline and Catalina Island. Situated steps from the sandy beach, The Beachcomber&#39;s outdoor patio provides the perfect spot to enjoy the ocean&#39;s breeze while sipping on your favorite cocktail or enjoying one of the many favorite entrees and appetizers. <br /><br />The Beachcomber&#39;s outdoor tropical bar &#39;The Bootlegger&#39; with thatch roofing provides the perfect spot to escape from the world while enjoying one of many tropical vivations.

Don't be fooled by the crowds and the noise; they are all part of the scene here at Laguna Beach's sexy and intense 230 Forest Avenue. The lean deep room seduces you to the open kitchen, bustling bar, and concrete floors, creating a space that is part modern bistro, part martini bar, and part art gallery. It's the perfect spot to see and be seen,laid back Laguna-style. Executive Chef Marc Cohen is consistently recognized as one of The OC's top chefs. You'll be ready to award him a medal, too, after tasting his flashy-to-the-eye, tickle-the-taste buds fusion appetizers and entrees. His dishes are often so stunning that they compete with the artwork on the walls, making for a thoroughly satisfying "artistic" experience.

OPENING SEPTEMBER 25, 2014!<br /><br />Del Frisco's Grille is opening this Fall in Rockville,MD. Industrial and lush elements will create an atmosphere that is stylish, social and relaxed. The energetic bar will create a buzz throughout the restaurant and set the stage for an exciting dining experience that is unlike any other American grill. It’ll be your place to eat with a friend and catch up on the latest or make new friends at the bar. Our food and drinks are built to share, so share the experience with your neighbors – they are just friends you haven’t met yet.<br /><br />Located in the new Pike & Rose complex, we are between Rockville Pike and Executive Road on Old Georgetown Rd. We are steps away from the White Flint Metro station. Complimentary valet is offered and self-parking is available in the garage directly behind us.

"Although they were very attentive and actually gave one of our diners the luncheon special with three courses even though she had only ordered an entree salad and we had ordered the 3 course special, the timing of the meal was very irregular. Our appetizers arrived quickly, then two of the entrees came out before we were through with the appetizers with the third arriving much later. After the dessert course, we didn't see our server again until long after we were ready for the check. It was as though everyone had deserted us. Everyone was very nice and the food was very good, it just seemed like the timing was completely off."
