Catalina Island Brew House 

Outstanding chocolate croissant at Catalina Island Brew House!  This place is great!  They specialize in coffee in the morning and beer in the evening.  The perfect “brew” house in my opinion. 

Buffalo Nickel Restaurant 

Our favorite restaurant to eat at every time we visit Catalina Island is always Buffalo Nickel!  Aside from the amazing burgers and whatnot, they have a surprisingly good selection of Mexican food.  Here’s a great order of flautas and some outstanding chips & salsa!


Descanso Beach Club

Outstanding popcorn shrimp appetizer at the Descanso Beach Club on Catalina Island!  Just a short walk north from the casino is this amazing oasis. 

El Galleon Restaurant 

One of our favorite places to eat when visiting Catalina Island has always been El Galleon!  During our last visit I tried the Catalina “Dagwood” Sandwich and it was outstanding!  Made with pit ham, turkey breast, tri tip beef and bacon, with Swiss cheese, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, bread & butter pickle chips all on toasted sourdough bread.  Only $11.95, served with fries, etc. 

Carne Asada Nachos

Outstanding homemade carne asada nachos! 

Mac & Cheese

Outstanding homemade Italian style Macaroni and cheese!

Red Lobster 

Outstanding display of deep fried seafood goodness at Red Lobster!  Simply called “Admiral’s Feast”, one of my favorite dishes there.  Highlight though is always the fresh, warm Cheddar Bay Biscuits. 



Jack in the Box

Outstanding chicken breakfast sandwich thing at Jack in the Box!

Pailin Thai Cafe 

Best panang curry lunch special in SoCal at Pailin Thai Cafe!  Asian comfort food at its finest. 

Plaza Grill

Outstanding roast beef club sammich and clam chowder bread bowl thing at Barona Casino!
