After many years of driving by the Neptune's Net, I finally stopped there for lunch yesterday. I was looking forward to having some clam chowder. The server gave me a cup of green, creamy, stuff. When I asked her about it, she said they made it green for St. Patrick's Day. Now, I was not interested in eating this greenish goo. When I told her I would rather not order it after all, I was treated rather coldly and made to stand by the counter to get my money refunded while the rest of our order was ready. Also, I ordered a side of crab cake and a side of coleslaw. Instead I was charged for the Crab Cake Basket. After the ordeal with the green clam chowder, I was not about to start all over again about the incorrect order. Besides being overpriced, the greenish goo and the cold treatment, made for a very unpleasant meal.
I will no longer be thinking to stop to check out Neptune's Net in the future. That won't be happening again.

Moved out of California now for some years, but still come back to visit family. And when I do, I HAVE to come here at least once (if not more) per visit. Can't beat the atsmosphere and great food, with the flavour of the ocean right next to you. Also being bias too, growing up close by in Simi Valley, this place (and the surounding coastline) will always be a fondest of memories for me, with more and more to come as life goes on. I highly recommend this place to anyone ,to at least experiance once, and decide on your own.

I travel,&this is my favorite seafood joint in the U.S.A. The steamed seafood is great-really fresh-& relatively reasonably priced($1xtra to upgrade to JUMBO shrimp-do it)Compared to other Malibu eateries lobster crab etc.here is a steal.Notice any bad food reviews center around the fried?this place may not have the best fish &chips(for that you go to Andrea's in Ventra),but clam strips(wide&meaty) and calamari(crunchy tenticles)are exceptional.. Now,who expects""service""from a walk up window?You people are Whinney Little Babies.The beer is in the cooler-help yo'self-(p.s. we like it that way)HOWEVER we DO NOT LIKE the PORT-O-LET so-called restroom.If flush toliets arent possible ,how about CLEANING the portable ones?They are so gross I can only suggest this place to my""adventurous"" friends. BUT THE VIEW....not just surfing PARASURFING,the best place to see stunts in SoCal,I know I,ve done the research.Costal access(free )beach parking can be hard to find so DON'T spoil your trip to the shore,pony up the small fee to park at Leo Carillo State Park.Explore the canyon&look for the elusive secluded coves.Maybe camp over nite?Let's at least stay for dinner too & watch this AWESOME SUNSET...Hey,grab me a beer ,wouldya?

The shrimp, veggies, and clam chowder are always so fresh and filling. Quite a deal in this economy.
Then I fell in love with the sourdough and now have a crush on the custard. Who knew they'd steal my affections! A cool drive up the coast is a bonus too. The staff is great so tip away!

This is no doubt some of the best seafood you will find in the area. Yes, you do have venture out of LA county, and yes, you will mix and mingle with a surly crew of bikers and soldiers on leave from Point Magoo, but it's all worth it. The freshest seafood you'll find anywhere (as you pick it out while it's still moving) and all of it prepared with a greasy spoon's touch for taste. Not to mention a great view and outdoor seating that's really hard to beat. There's a reason you see paparazzi shots of stars pulling up outside this place.

I went there after a day at the beach, and I had a blast. We ordered calamari, fried shrimp, and fish tacos, and everything tasted really good. I wish I would've gotten the clam chowder. Someone at a booth nearby had it, and it looked delicious. I liked the casual, beachy vibe, and the service was quick.

If you go to places for the restrooms, and not the food... Then this isn't the place for you...
If you complain that a plate of fried seafood for 10 bucks is too expensive... Then this isn't the place for you.
If you complain that this place is too far away from you... Deal with it, they can't move the building... This isn't the place for you.
If you spend time tallying how many shrimp you get, and complain that it's not enough for 10 bucks... Then this isn't the place for you.
If you are expecting valet parking, then this isn't the place for you.
If you are expecting a host in a tux to greet you at the door, then this isn't the place for you.
If you have have a problem with picking up your food at the window without someone bringing it to you, then this isn't the place for you.
If you go to Mcdonald's and spend 3 bucks for a big mac, and complain that it's not filet mignon, then this isn't the the place for you.
If you find something to complain about for everything, then lock yourself in you house, and never leave.
If you like good food at very reasonable prices and ocean views.... The this is the place for you!
Try the fresh seafood side.

I love how people complain about the service. Its a biker bar, what service did you expect? Nobody is going to greet you at the door, your waiter isn't going to pull out the chairs for you and wipe them down with his white apron, you're not going to get a wine list. The only thing one should expect from this place is cold beer and good food. And Neptune's delivers on both counts. The only bad thing is the crowds but even then I cant imagine Neptunes without the people. You got everything from out of town tourists to old school bikers, hot women, families with kids.... And pretty much everybody is friendly and just having a good time.

Let me just say that this place gets points for its location and for the fact that it is a staple of old L.A. However, the food was absolutely atrocious. For a place that is widely renowned for its seafood, I was really disappointed. My fish and chips was bland and the fish had a funny texture. It doesn't deserve all the hype but I gave it 2 stars because it is located in a really cool place.

The combination of bikers, tourists, and surfers certainly isn't found just anywhere. The clam chowder was very good, although it did need a little pepper, and the fried shrimp and french fries were excellent. I enjoyed the crab cake, but wish I'd skipped the fried fish--dry and bland. Still, it's better than some of its competitors closer to Santa Monica, and it's a fine place to eat if you're driving out PCH toward Oxnard.
