The Best Restaurants in Dana Point

Dana Point restaurants are among the best in all of Orange County, but you have to be selective with where you go and what you try. Luckily, we’ve done our own trial and error and found the best dishes that each of our featured restaurants has to offer. To be clear, we liked everything on the menu, but finding the standout items to try at each new restaurant is a must, and we’ve already done it for you! The Harbor Grill The Harbor Grill is one of the best restaurants in Dana Point thanks to its close proximity to the ocean. Nothing gets you in the mood for quality seafood like smelling the ocean. There are absolutely some great burgers and steaks for the non-seafood lovers out there, but the seafood is what keeps everyone coming back! We are particularly partial to the Barbecued Shrimp “Louisiana Style” and the Pacific Swordfish with Garlic Mashed Potatoes. They also have oysters on a half shell, or you can get them fried, so save some room! Kawamata Seafood

Pumpkin Patch If you don’t want to do anything extreme and prefer to relax on Halloween, visit the Irvine Regional Park where there’s a pumpkin field and hay maze.
