After years of dining in the Carlsbad Village area and passing Koko Beach time after time...I have finaly stopped in. And I can say I am glad I did! Koko Beach does have an older, "Fire Side" type feel to it. But it is inviting and lively at the same time. The bar area does get full pretty quickly with regulars, especially during major sporting events... but I still found ample room to grab a beer while waiting for our table. I was pleasantly surprised to see that even during a peak time.. pints were only $5, which included local craft beer! The dining area is not huge, but laid out well with a service station in the middle allowing most anyone that passed to refill waters, get plates etc. The staff, from the hostess to the bartenders, waitress and bussers were great. Never failing to offer a hand when passing our table or offering a suggestion on the "Steakhouse" type menu. The food was great, several specials offered a variety of items from fish, to chicken and steaks at reasonable prices. My family and I tried everything from the salmon to the flat iron steak to a burger. All got a satisfied thumbs up! All in all, Koko Beach isa great option for a late night meal, family get together, or just a beer and a game!
Do not be put off by the 70's decor, this is the 'dive bar' of old steakhouses. No one in the area makes a better prime rib. The prices are even better including the drinks.
There is no better place to get a Prime Rib!!!! It the most juicy mouthwatering prime rib for a fraction of the price of other fancy less flavorful prime rib spots.
Pretty cool place, friendly service, good value. They brought us freshly baked bread to start, and quickly took our orders. The clam chowder was delicious! The potatoes are perfectly cooked so the soup is very creamy. They give you the choice of soup or salad with the entrees. I ordered the baby back ribs special. It came with the soup, baked beans, and fresh vegetables. Delicious, and so much food, I almost couldn't eat all of the ribs. The waitress was really nice. She brought out a warm washcloth so I could clean all of the barbecue sauce off of my hands. Perfect. :) Also, you can't beat the location, it's only about 2 blocks from the beach. Enjoy your dinner!
1st time here. Reasonable prices. Fast friendly service. Good food. Fresh salad.
Food was delicious!! Atmosphere was great for a seafood/steakhouse environment. Prices were wonderful considering it was steak and seafood less than 1 mile from the beach!!!
Always consistently great. Whether you want steak or seafood, you can't go wrong. Clam Chowder and French onion soup are always fantastic. Very big fish portions for a great price. Love the Cajun swordfish when seasonally available. Excellent service from everyone always. Excellent selection in bar as well. Why pay more at other touristy places nearby when you can dine with locals and friendly staff at KoKo.
We love this place.. Super great steaks salads seafood and lots more. The homemade blue cheese dressing chunky and delicious goes with anything ! ! Open late every day. Friendly family atmosphere . Phenomenal prices and specials. Huge long tables in back for large parties. Big high back booths for date night. Even a room dedicated for ultra private parties adjacent to lounge area. Nothing even compares in North County for frequent dining. A timeless gem and staple in our community for decades.
My husband and I have been going to Koko Beach for over a year and a half - We are always greeted with friendly and responsive service - Maria the bartender always has great attitude and provides great service. My husband loves the clam chowder!
I always go for the prime rib special with potato and salad with bleu cheese, and before current baby in belly I got a 7&7 to drink. Some day I'll be back to 7&7's, they are fantastic.
They don't make a weak drink that I've ever had so hold on.
The prime rib is so juicy and consistently delicious they can't help but slop some juice over the side of the plate as it's on it's way to you. Like one of our waitresses told us, you wouldn't want to see the carpet in the day.
I even love their horseradish and anywhere else I'm not a fan.
They have a room you can reserve for a private party, some of the booths are pretty small for a group of 4 so try to get a table if you can.
