I have working and living here for 2 years and I eat out often. I am not a clean freak at all, but this place is showing the wear and tear of tourists. The menus are dirty. The flooring needs a good cleaning, etc etc !! Great view but pricey ! Portions are generous but salad is extra. Service was... More

The food was good and the prices reasonable. Location right over the water makes site seeing while you eat a bonus.

Ask for a "Loaded Bloody Mary". And ask for Cindy to serve it to you. This place is a real gem. In real estate it's location, location, location. In vacation dining it's service, location & food quality". The Fish Hopper is a home run.

A wonderful, casual lunch sitting on the outer deck enjoying the ocean view, the sand dabs and calamari and Cindy's service. Something for everyone in a large, fresh menu.

This place obviously gets its trade from the tourists on the boardwalk with the perfect location at the end. Nice little outside dining area which was packed. Ended up on the end inside. Had bowl of ok chowder and a Cajun snapper sandwich. Neither of which were exceptional and the coffee was truly undrinkable. Not great.

Great food food, great service, and an enjoyable view from their outdoor patio. We especially enjoyed the excellent service from Cindy B., a true professional. Highly recommend!

I was there on a fantastic sunny day in winter and the food was great. They have some good ales but they are really strong. Only downside was a large family just sitting there watching their kids feeding bread to the seagulls. I wasn't feeling mean enough to tell them to stop but credit to the waitress for telling them...

This place is one of the best ever! Fabulous service and attention from the minute we walked in. The menu choices were extensive and the waiter (Jerry W) extremely knowledgable. My salmon with prawns was amazing! My husband had the sand dabs--also great! One of the best meals we've ever had! Besides tasting great, the presentation was unique and beautiful.... More

My husband and I were looking for a casual restaurant on Cannery Row where we could celebrate our wedding anniversary over a great meal. Fish Hopper fit the bill, with a view of seals and otters playing in the water, gentle waves splashing over the rocky shore, and a lone sail boat braving the rather strong winds. We started with...
