Malibu Pier Restaurant & Bar: A Breezy, Beachy Seafood Shanty

Malibu Pier Restaurant & Bar: Breezy,

Longtime Malibu dwellers may miss funky Alice’s Restaurant, where the likes of Cher, Elizabeth Taylor and Arnold Schwarzenegger mingled easily with tourists. But chef Jason Fullilove is bringing the new Malibu Pier Restaurant & Bar into the modern age with local produce and seafood deemed sustainable by the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The whitewashed open ceiling, patterned tile floor, whalebone wall decorations and rope chandeliers stylishly hint at the restaurant’s nautical leanings, while the views are, of course, unbeatable.

Eat: Malibu Pier Stew with Carlsbad clams, mini lobster rolls, spot prawn corn dogs, oysters on the half shell

Drink: Indulge in hibiscus-blood orange margaritas or a Hemingway daiquiri at the separate indoor-outdoor bar.

    It was horrible in so many ways. Alice’s use to be there and was wonderful. I wish I had never gone back. The first tip it wasn’t going to be good was there were hoards of people walking past the restaurant to a smaller one on the pier with no seating. I did take a double take on that, but I wanted to sit down. They made us wait and what was really strange was we commented on the fact that there were so many empty tables. Their response was that there was only one waitress and they didn’t want to overwork her. When we got in to the over half empty area, there were several waiters, all doing just about nothing. The kid that waited on us was nice, he seemed to be the only one doing anything. I ordered their Washington state Riesling, it was awful. It was yellow and tasted like someone poured beer in it. There wasn’t much food wise on the menu and I said I noticed people eating fish n chips and the guy said you could order it, it just wasn’t on the menu. I did and it was cod, which is a nice mild fish. They heavy battered it, and did something I never heard of in my life, they salted it. You NEVER salt, salt water fish, never. I drank a ton of water for the rest of the day. It was very disappointing to say the least, and I suggest anyone keep on going. Very strange place
