Stopped for lunch. Mussels over cooked, very rubbery, lacking white wine in the mussels and too much lemon. Crab cakes, ahi tuna were adequate. Oysters were mostly good, one was very fishy.More

Although a bit pricey, the food is very good. We had the fish and chips which was made with cod and the steamed clams were delicious. We always stop here when in Morro Bay and it never disappoints!
