Barbara's Fishtrap: "Seafood in Princeton Harbor is a must" Top 5 Page for this destination Half Moon Bay Restaurant Tip by evaesq

Half Moon Bay Restaurants: 11 reviews and 14 photos

Barbara's has been around forever and is a wonderful, casual restaurant just north of Half Moon Bay in the fishing town of Princeton Harbor. It is definitely worth a stop for its fresh seafood and local atmosphere. It is always crowded, though, and therefore there's bound to be a wait. But, you get to wait while overlooking Princeton Harbor so bring your sweaters and enjoy the view outside and chat with the easygoing people hanging out in the mist. Wander around the fishing town and check out the harbor while you wait too. It is very close to one of the major surfing stops in the world--Maverick's! You won't see it from there, but perhaps you can soak up some of those skills from the seafood and the sea itself.

Favorite Dish: Any of the fresh seafood does it.
