Moonraker wrecker

Massive wave crashes through Pacifica restaurant

A giant wave broke through a Pacifica restaurant's windows Saturday morning, flooding the room and causing thousands of dollars in damage.

The destruction at Moonraker Restaurant was caught on surveillance video. Thankfully, the restaurant was closed and no one was inside when it happened. 

The staff came to work Saturday morning to find the first floor flooded. Originally, they thought wind was responsible for breaking the windows, until they watched the surveillance footage, according to KRON 4

"The windows shattered. I mean glass just went everywhere and the room filled up with water pretty quickly," one of the restaurant's owners, Gary McNamara, told KPIX

A large part of the restaurant's appeal has always been its beachside views. Now, despite the damage and boarded-up windows, the restaurant is still open for business.
