Had lunch at the bar, in front of the chefs, everything looked great. We had oysters and beer. Sandwiches looked great. You cannot go wrong at this place, the only difficulty is deciding what to order.

Very small but very good, the staff is great and very friendly, they have a small kitchen view counter, the place to sit and watch them prepare your food selection. This place is an institution in Carmel.

After looking round Carmel we called in for lunch. The place is compact but we were quickly seated. We shared fish and shrimp tacos, which were delicious, washed down with "Luponic Distortion" IPA. At $34 before tip it was an inexpensive lunch, considering the area.

We went for a light dinner, had Bloody Mary's and 12 oysters. The service was incredibly fast, friendly and very efficient. Prices were very fair! Not cheap but not over the top either, given that it is Carmel by The Sea. Highly recommended!

Perfect place for a seafood eatery and pub with moderate prices. Service was very good with a friendly attitude and quick seating with no reservations. We all enjoyed our meals from prawns to salads. Roger
