Rusty Pelican has been a long Newport Beach tradition for outstanding meals and legendary service. You'll love the breathtaking harbor views from our Coast Highway location. With our wide variety menu, we have something to offer everyone and a selection from our award winning wine list provides the perfect complement to your meal. Our Sunset Dining Menu is available Monday through Friday 4:00 PM – 5:15 PM.

"Everything was delicious and wonderful....there was a nice variety to choose from on the restaurant week menu....but, we had to ask for the special menu, making us feel slightly uncomfortable."

Driftwood Kitchen features a classic California Coastal vibe that reflects the breathtaking oceanfront views, and a menu with the freshest and finest seafood, steaks and hand-shucked oysters.

"I've been anxious to try Driftwood Kitchen and am glad I did. Food was very good, service was good and, of course, the view can't be beat. It's a little noisy, but energetic and fun. The only complaint is if you're there for lunch, the sun beats thru the uncovered windows and it gets very warm. Sunglasses are a must also. I would go back. There were three of us and we had a great time."

Our founders, Brian Bennett and Paul Fleming, had a vision for a restaurant they wished was in their neighborhood — a place that serves you dishes made from scratch with the highest quality ingredients prepared simply and well, all offered at accessible prices. Embracing this concept and carrying these values into the restaurant kitchen, Paul Martin's American Grill was born.<br /><br />Today our motto remains "Seasonal & Delicious." On our menu you will find the best seafood from sustainable fisheries, free-range and natural meats and poultry, artisan cheeses and cured meats. Alongside our food, we serve artisanal cocktails made with house-infused spirits, craft beers and a deep selection of over 100 wines, most of which are offered by the glass.<br /><br />We encourage you to peruse our rich and varied menus, which are designed to foster sampling and sharing. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin’s.

"We were celebrating my daughter's birthday. Food Was very good. We started with a cocktail, followed by two of the brunch items. Following the meal, our waiter wished my daughter a happy birthday with their special sundae. We had a wonderful time and would definitely return to Paul Martin's again."

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.

"I brought friends who have never dined at the Beachcomber and they were all very impressed. Loved the food, and, of course the view!
One issue....I had two people with me who were elderly and needed accessible parking. In order to park in an accessible space, it costs $15. I thought this was outrageous, considering the two people who truly needed accessible parking were unable to navigate the beachcomber shuttle.
I know this is not the Beachcombers policy, it's the States...but those in most need should know what the consequences are before before trying to park close to the restaurant. The State of Cakifornia should be ashamed of itself...."
