About Paradise Beach Grille
On January 2nd, 1998, we purchased the building at 215 Esplanade. After 5 months of extensive renovations we opened our restaurant, Paradise Beach Grille, in late May of the same year on Memorial Day. Five years later in 2003, Robert and Carol Coe joined the Paradise Beach Grille family as investment partners. Still going strong, last May marked our 13th year anniversary.
From day one, we have not wavered from our original concept of providing quality service and food in a fun environment for our customers, employees and owners. Paradise has become a popular meeting place for local patrons as well as a favorite restaurant for tourist including many regular patrons from over the hill in the Bay Area. We have been voted the Best Restaurant in Santa Cruz County for the last five years.
Paradise maximizes the beautiful beach location on Monterey Bay with an outdoor patio with views of the historic Venetian condominiums and the ocean. This combination is reminiscent of a Portofino environment in Italy. We also feature an outdoor fireplace perfect for that cozy dinner or wine tasting. We have high top tables in the bar area for drinks or dining as well as an attractive and spacious dining room. Customers enjoy the various casual venues yet an upscale flair with quality food, beverage and service.
Our menu features a wide variety of attractive salads and appetizers, fresh seafood and Black Angus Beef from Braveheart. Paradise features an extensive wine list of California wines including over 10 local wineries and over 20 wines by the glass. We provide weekly specials and a bar menu with special Happy Hour pricing.
