If you’re searching for an iconic motorcycle eatery in a remote location, Neptune’s Net is a destination spot every biker must know about!
You might instantly recognize Neptune’s Net restaurant, with its eye-catching 50s-style diner sign and its enviable waterfront location. That’s because the seafood restaurant and bar has had cameos in many well-known films and series!
Follow in the footsteps of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, who stopped off at Neptune’s Net in the very first “Fast and the Furious” film. The restaurant is also the same place where Lori Petty’s character, Tyler, works in the 1991 film “Point Break“, which also features Keanu Reeves. It was even featured in “Iron Man 3“!
Have a “biker meal”
Located at 42505 Pacific Coast Highway, north of Malibu, near the border of Ventura County, the iconic Neptune’s Net is not just a star-studded hotspot, but it’s long been a popular haunt for bikers. The roadside spot has remained a Malibu classic since it first opened in the 1950s.
Motorcyclist, Renee R, says, “I’ve been visiting Neptune’s Net for 35 years and always enjoy the food, atmosphere, people-watching, and smell of the ocean. Fried shrimp and a bottle of Peroni, yum!” Enjoy views of the ocean while having some fresh, casual seafood dishes ranging from their famous Clam Chowder, seafood baskets and beer-battered fish-and-chips, to burgers and sandwiches for those who want something different from seafood. All washed down with a draft beer or a non-alcoholic option for riders.
The ideal biker destination
Many gleaming motorcycles typically line the front of the restaurant, which is also usually buzzing with locals and beachgoers, creating a sociable atmosphere. It’s an ideal biker destination for a lunch pit stop and scenic views across the coast – make sure to try to get a table on the outdoor patio for the best eating experience!
If you’re traveling from the Santa Monica Mountains direction, you’ll ride along thrilling, twisty canyon roads. If you’re traveling along the Pacific Coast Highway, expect epic ocean views along the way. Plus, the ride to the restaurant is mostly traffic-free, opening up for an uninterrupted coastal ride.
Before you jump back on your bike after your grub at Neptune’s Net, be sure to walk across the street and soak up the ocean views at County Line Beach, which is popular with surfers. It’s worth noting that Neptune’s Net operates on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. But one thing is for sure, it’s downright blasphemous not to stop in for a quick meal on your way along the Pacific Coast Highway!
