Big thanks go to you Surf Spoters, our neighbors and friends, for your vote of confidence and support!

Best of Pacifica 2014

The 2014 Pacifica Tribune Readers Choice Awards honor local businesses in 40 categories each year via anonymous voting.

In our first year on the list, we are honored to have been chosen in two categories:

  • Best Place for Lunch
  • Best Place for Live Music

We connect to you, our community, through our food and our live events! As our Entertainment Director & Senior Audio Engineer Michael Alexander says, "It's our connection to the community that makes the Surf Spot a special place in Pacifica."

Fresh Food & Community

Our ingredients are the freshest we can find, with much sourced from local growers, and we prepare everything, from daily specials to live-fire pizzas to classic comfort food with great care and attention.

Our live events are just as carefully crafted, starting with the sound system.

Michael Alexander, Surf Spot's sound engineer, says, "It's an art, a lot of science, some modern technology, smoke, mirrors, and a little magic, to get great sound outdoors," and adds that it's a team effort, including Jeremy, his lead pro audio engineer and Megan, the talented woman-with-chalk, who updates the Band & Event Board.

Our live music shows on the weekends feature a lot of Pacifica's own local stars like The Chris Cobb Band, The OffShoots, Cypress Jazz, and The Dim Lights, just to name a few. There's something for everyone.

We also do local music programs like the Terra Nova High School Jazz Band or the middle school flute band, coming in February, and the youth from the Green Room Music Center play several times over the summer.

When you visit, we want you to feel like you're in your own back yard with lots of friends over, and you don't have do the clean up afterwards!
