A guest favorite for casual dining, Nelson’s is perched directly above the ocean coves made famous by the 1950s television series Sea Hunt – from which this modern surf shack takes its name. The cliff-top eatery pays homage to Sea Hunt’s main character, Mike Nelson, as well as actor Lloyd Bridges’ lifetime efforts to protect the environment and the ocean. Enjoy coastal cuisine and a warm, friendly bar atmosphere surrounded by outdoor fire pits and unrivalled sunset views. This Southern California casual restaurant offers one of the most scenic locations in Palos Verdes to enjoy a meal or drink in a relaxed setting.
In gratitude of dining at Terranea Resort, complimentary parking is offered to daily visitors with validation.
