SeaGlass Restaurant

SeaGlass Restaurant

SeaGlass Restaurant is a casual, waterside venue with stunning views located at the east end of the museum. Chef Loretta Keller has created family-friendly, multicultural, locally sourced menus that showcase small producers. The menus change seasonally but may include tacos and quesadillas, Welsh rarebit (a riff on grilled cheese), pizzas, salads, and sandwiches. You’ll also find fresh seafood and sushi that meets Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guidelines.

SeaGlass offers natural soft drinks, organic and fair trade coffees and teas, and sparkling house-made drinking vinegar beverages. It also features a bar that showcases artisanal distillers, many organic, and a thoughtfully curated wine and beer list. The bar itself incorporates Icy Bodies, an exhibit by Exploratorium Senior Artist Shawn Lani, into its design.

The restaurant accepts Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express. Reservations are not accepted.
