I'm a pro food photographer and Bay Area local. Here are my picks for the best Half Moon Bay restaurants

Sam's Chowder House serves amazing lobster rolls. Carry one out and eat at the restaurant's beach.

Cameron's is an authentic British pub complete with a double decker bus. Try the fish and chips!

The Conservatory at the Ritz Carlton is expensive, but it's one of the most beautiful locations in the world.

Mezza Luna serves classic Italian fare in a historic building. It's one of my family's favorites.

For dessert, check out the Moonside Bakery on Main Street for a massive selection of pastries.
