First, they're open late, until midnight. That's always good. Second, their food is the best deal for the money. It may not be imaginative. It's simply prepared. A decent low fat meal costs less than $11. Their salmon is seldom overcooked, something that happens all to often in more costly restaurants. The lighting is subdued with nice booths and only a few tables at the back. Even those tables are along a continuous comfortable bench seat. With a drink (not stingy on the alcohol and often under $5), dinner for two is under $40. Not bad these days. But keep the lights fairly subdued, Coco Beach. Their sister restaurant put in harsher energy saving bulbs and ruined it.
I just wished we lived closer! Classic steak house, Excellent meat, great service, prices and ambience. We always have a great time at the bar, meet fun people. We bring family and friends as often as we can. Never had a bad meal.
Woohoo! What a nice surprise! I'd been here once before for drinks @ the patio bar! Was trying to get people together for my birthday and someone suggested we go here... Yeeeha! I was running late, my friend Sue put our names in so they could seat 8 of us. We had a nice round table so we could talk! I didn't hear any complaints! My friend got the French onion soup some others got the clam chowder! One of my friends said this is the ONLY place she has liked the clam chowder from Chicago to Cali!
Good food for good prices. Interior has not been re-decorated since the opening - but the food has been good for every visit. We will continue to patronize. Good specials with steak and prime rib.
Old yes! A bit worn, yes! service good YES!, Food good YES! Price right YES! This is a real staple for the locals. If you are looking for trendy and flashy, go somewhere else. If you are looking for old fashion good service and food and a reasonable
price stop in.
Prime Rib is my favorite, house dressing on your salad and some of the homemade swirled bread they make... A San Diego staple
The dining experience was very comfortable and the ambiance was "old school and kind of a mobster-like restaurant. Lolz!
They steaks were huge and sooooo freaking affordable. The salad and sides were great as well. And please try the desserts, you will be satisfied. The chocolate cake and carrot cake are delicious!
And again, verrrrry affordable!!!
Love ko ko beach for their dinners. Prime rib barbacue beef bones, crisp salads and warm bread priced very reasonably. Drinks reasonable not fancy place but darn good regular food for the price. Where else can you eat a dinner from 8-12 dollars. Try their early bird dinners to save even more
Don't know of ever getting better Prime Rib that at Koko Beach, Carlsbad. Moved to Oceanside in late Dec after many years living overseas, and "discovered" Koko Beach on my only earlier stay in the area, and couldn't wait to get back. I'd like to eat there every week but so far it's only been maybe 10-12 times since I've returned.
Always the greatest and other friends/family have ordered just about everything on the menu, and we've never had a bad meal here.
Carlsbad is such a quaint seaside city, that is visited by people from all over the world!! If you're in the mood for a casual, yet yummy restaurant that satisfies all, check out Koko Beach Restaurant. Where the surf meets the turf, and great drinks are to be had; this place is family friendly!! They offer great specials and thier staff is very friendly!! Go where the locals go, and enjoy a scrumptious meal!!! :)
