Most of the shops are close. Some shabby outdoor eating places still open. I don't think it is worth the drive anymore. I is an excellent place to watch the cruise ship pass by, you are very close to them and that is fun to...More

Over price disgusting food. Run down, dirty, urine smelling and lots of ghetto people. Not safe at all and would never come back. Unless you want to visit Tijuana and not leave the state then this is the place for you.

Best place ever for happy hour then stay on for dinner. Bar tenders are friendly, drinks are great, service good too. The Taco Tuesday or Luau Thursdays are my favorite, Friday gets crazy and very noisy. A nice peaceful time is late lunch on the...More

Relaxing atmosphere out of the Cities hustle and bustle, plenty of great seafood bar restaurants overlooking the harbour.

My father used to bring me here when I was growing up in the late 60s/early 70s. We always bought seashells to add to our collection and I looked forward to every visit. This was my first time back since 1980 and what an incredibly...More

This place is getting a bit of a facelift, I like it the way it was.. It is a good place to have a few beers and watch the ships go bye.

This is a lovely but somewhat dated area within San Pedro. We visited in February while renting a yacht via AirBnB in a berth nearby. There are multiple restaurants within the village and a few shops. In February, it seemed like not everything was open,...More

Great memories from my teen years. But this review is after we finished our 50-State Quest and made our only trip south in the Month of June ((2009 not 2016)). This was different from our normal vacations in that it was to see friends and...More

You can make reservations. I don't think holding a table on the patio is a problem, as long as it's not very long, but better to make a reservation, either for inside, or the patio.

I've seen people occasionally bring a dog or two through the gate to the left of the restaurant and into the patio. Don't know that it's "allowed," but no one seemed to mind or complain as long as the pooches were well... More

It's probably about a 15 minute walk at a comfortable pace. If you hoofed it, it might be half that. It's about a mile.
