Someone put chewing gum on my chair and it got on my pants of which I ended up throwing away. I asked for ice to freeze the gum and the server brought me a hand sanitizer. Then my dinner of fish and chips had a huge bone in the fish which jabbed me in my jaw. The french fries were... More

We had lunch here today. Our server, Cindy, was wonderful. The food and cocktails were out of this world. We would definitely eat here again and recommend this restaurant to our friends.

The location of this restaurant is amazing.... love the view and watching the waves roll in. The service was very good. We ordered the clam chowder, which was pretty good but I've definitely had better. My husband and I split the halibut for lunch. I thought it was very good but did seem to lack flavor. Our son had a... More

A great seafood restaurant with great views from almost every table. The food is always great and their clam chowder is especially good - good enough for us to always grab some to go regardless of how full we are. The dishes are centered around seafood, as you'd expect, but they also have a couple of great steak options and... More

We had dinner here on our second night in Monterey after hearing others in our hotel talking about how great it was. Well they were right. We loved this place. Incredible location on top of the water. Fantastic menu options, great food quality and presentation and a very professional wait staff. We will definitely be back.

A lovely location looking out over the ocean and the bay, a great menu, amazing food and the service was fantastic. This experience was shared with very special people and a memory I will never forget. There are lots of restaurants to choose from in this area, we chose well.

We learned the hard way that there are coupons for free appetizers in shops and brochures- keep an eye out. The food is pricey but it was good.

Had a lovely lunch here on a rainy day. We were so excited about the view! Our table by the window was right in the water. We saw 2 seals during lunch. The blackened mahi mahi was amazing and the coconut shrimp ahi salad was too. Quite a nice wine list. The service was the perfect amount of taking care... More

I don't know why, but apparently the people out front serving "to go" orders don't like you ordering a lot of clam chowder bread bowls. I was ordering six of them for our group and the person I asked looked liked he was spooked when I did. I thought he was going to ask me if I was sure I... More

Awesome local place for dinner right on the water. Make sure to make reservations and request a table overlooking the water. The service was fantastic. Perfect for special occasions. Not an inexpensive place but fantastic selection. Make sure to save room for dessert.
