Fred's in Huntington is cool and has a big patio with a view of the pier/ocean.

Thanks... We are from Miami so really looking for a special place....

Can be upscale or local hangout... Maybe something in Oceanside or Del Mar?

Thanks again....

Oceanside isn't really a fine-dining type of town. Del Mar though, is. If you like fish, then (going north to south), Kings in Carlsbad, Pacifica Breeze for some of the best fish tacos in SD County, and Bluewater, which is just south of Old Town (beats the hell out of the "popular" Point Loma Seafood).
There are pricier places, to be sure, and they are good. Yelp will give you them all.
If you like sushi, then try this for Oceanside:
Ohzen Sushi

oops, let me add a very good Mexican restaurant in Encinitas:
Bety's Tacos Restaurant

Excellent pollo mole and camarones a la diabla

Sounds good....

We may end up departing LA around noon after lunch...

If so, what would be a good 1/2 way point along the Ocean for happy hour...

Maybe Del Mar area

Happy Hour and Specials at Pacifica Bar in Del Mar
It's the main restaurant attached to Pacifica Breeze.
From there, it's a short walk to the beach and you're also right in the heart of Del Mar. Hard to beat!

Hotel Laguna in Laguna Beach is cool. They have a bar/casual dining area with an ocean view.

You will be early for Happy hour, but try the outdoor patio at Las Brisas in Laguna Beach for a cocktail. Great View. You also may want to check out La Jolla in San DIego. There are also several nice places right above the cove that have great food & drink.
