The food was good basic fare. The service was friendly and prompt. We changed our order and the server attended to it without any issues. Definitely will return on future trips to San Diego area.

After years of dining in the Carlsbad Village area and passing Koko Beach time after time...I have finaly stopped in. And I can say I am glad I did! Koko Beach does have an older, "Fire Side" type feel to it. But it is inviting and lively

Do not be put off by the 70's decor, this is the 'dive bar' of old steakhouses. No one in the area makes a better prime rib. The prices are even better including the drinks.

There is no better place to get a Prime Rib!!!! It the most juicy mouthwatering prime rib for a fraction of the price of other fancy less flavorful prime rib spots.

Always consistently great. Whether you want steak or seafood, you can't go wrong. Clam Chowder and French onion soup are always fantastic. Very big fish portions for a great price. Love the Cajun swordfish when seasonally available.

I always go for the prime rib special with potato and salad with bleu cheese, and before current baby in belly I got a 7&7 to drink. Some day I'll be back to 7&7's, they are fantastic.\r

Not a fancy place but neither are the prices. The prime rib is always excellent and my mom is a Prime Rib expert. Their specials have been great values. Love that they added windows with the last remodel and brightened it up a bit.

First, they're open late, until midnight. That's always good. Second, their food is the best deal for the money. It may not be imaginative. It's simply prepared. A decent low fat meal costs less than $11. Their salmon is seldom overcooked,

Good food for good prices. Interior has not been re-decorated since the opening - but the food has been good for every visit. We will continue to patronize. Good specials with steak and prime rib.

The prime rib here was outstanding! Don't be fooled by the low prices. The interior was a little dark, but it's outdated enough, it's retro. We thought it was a hoot!

Local's place, well executed. Try their prime rib special (they do an early- and late-bird special, which will save you some money), maybe even their babyback rib special... it's nice for a change of pace. Try their all crab salad at lunchtime, but be sure to ask for extra of their own blue cheese dressing, and some warm bread to round out the experience.

Koko beach has some great dinner specials, and you get a lot for you money. Most dinners come with a salad or soup, bread, and then the meal. The ribs are the best, and they are a great price!

KoKo is right across from the beach. The decor and outside are rundown. The food is Ok. Kind of like a "greasy spoon", but still good if your hungry and this is the only place open.

Although Koko Beach looks completely run down and the decor leaves much to be desired, the food is actually good. The food is even better around midnight or later when you are starving. Koko Beach serves a full menu until around 12 or 1 am. You can also still order beer at that time. Who could ask for more?

Looks can be deceiving. Koko beach needs to completely renovate. The food is alright. It is hard to get past the decor to actually want to sit down and eat. Not my first choice.
