Coastal Breezes and Cuisine at Doheny Surf

We dined as a guest of the venue

When checking into the DoubleTree Suites in Doheny Beach, I noticed the chic restaurant off to the side of the lobby. I took a peek at the menu and immediately knew that I wanted to have dinner with the family one night during our seaside staycation.

After a fun day creating family memories at the beach, we returned to the hotel to have dinner at Doheny Surf. The restaurant has a coastal design that is perfect for families to enjoy an intimate dinner together.

The one thing that I noticed in the restaurant is that they have a wood fire pizza oven which is rare to find in a hotel restaurant. The menu had a wide variety of culinary options making it easy for everyone in my family to find something to enjoy for dinner.

We had seen some of their nachos being served earlier in the day by the pool, and I knew that was exactly what I wanted to have for our appetizer. The nachos were huge! On top of a pile of fresh tortilla chips was cheddar, jack cheese, tomato, jalapenos, green onions, guacamole, sour cream, house made salsa, and grilled chicken. Our family savored every bite of the tasty appetizer and looked forward to our main course.

The kids couldn’t resist ordering pizza for dinner. They shared a bite of their pizza with me, and it was one of the most flavorful pizzas that I have had in Orange County. There is nothing better than a handmade pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven.

My husband loves burgers and seems to order one everywhere that we go. Of course, he ordered a burger. The burger was made with a 1/2 pound of grass fed beef. It came beautifully presented with lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheddar cheese inside of brioche bun. The burger was juicy and delicious.

I was having trouble deciding between the salmon and the steak, and the steak was what I ended up ordering. It arrived cooked to perfection. It was seasoned well, and when I used my knife to cut into the steak, juices oozed out of the meat revealing a steak cooked perfectly at medium rare.

Everybody knows that DoubeTree is known for having some of the best cookies, and we couldn’t return to our hotel room without trying the DT Cookie Skillet. The dessert came in a mini skillet with a warm cookie topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel. It was a little taste of heaven!

After dinner, we returned to our room where my husband I sat on the patio while basking in the cool ocean breezes and listened to the ocean waves crash. It was the perfect ending to our day exploring Doheny Beach. When planning your family staycation at the DoubleTree Suites in Doheny Beach, make reservations to have an unforgettable dinner at Doheny Surf. Doheny Surf is located at 34402 Pacific Coast Highway, Dana Point, California, 92629.
