We came to see some family in town. They recommended that we all go to Pier 46 for lunch. The inside is rather small with a long counter and one row of small tables with a walkway in between. Around the side they have a good amount of seating outside. I ordered the fish platter and substituted the rice for extra vegetables. The halibut was just a tad over cooked and a tad dry but very tasty. The vegetables were also very good. The rest of our group had the fish tacos and they all thought they were wonderful. They really served a nice amount of food. The price for four of us with only two beers came to 64 dollars. So the pricing is probably what you expect for a fish Restaurant but it had a bit of a fast food vibe. They had a nice Display case of different kinds of fish that you could have them cook for you on the spot if that’s what you like. We were probably there during the main part of lunch rush on a weekend and what I heard the bathrooms are also fairly clean which is nice. They also have several beers on tap. Pier 46 was definitely a great place to go for lunch.

On our way to the coast, pulled into a very tight Trader Joe’s parking lot to grab a bite. Enjoyed the fresh-off-the-boat fish market vibe. We had the fish tacos (a tad heavy on the slaw) and the fish and chips (well cooked and had both amazing sweet potato and seasoned fries). Staff was friendly, helpful and organized. Since the place was super busy, we got our order to go and sat at picnic tables across the parking lot next to Trader Joe’s with our pups.

This establishment is where you order at the counter then take a table where you are served. We each had the seafood combo which consisted of fried fish, shrimp, calamari, french fries and sweet potato fries. Not being a fan of fried food the fish is excellent. Two huge portions of fish which are lightly breaded, the shrimp are good size and lightly breaded as well. Being the calamari are thin strips the flavor gets a little lost being fried. Overall, the serving is large. They have a large seafood counter with all the different seafood to buy fresh to take home to cook. There is also outside seating. Very friendly staff and attentive.

Every time we go to the coast we make sure that we get to Templeton at noon time to eat the great fish and chips that this place delivers. Nothing pretentious, simple food that is well done and consistent.

Ciopino. Ciopino. Ciopino. I guess I can’t get it off my mind. Shrimp, clams, muscles, salmon, white fish. Probably forgot some items.
