Who knew there was a great restaurant here?

At the end of a long pier, this funky old building houses a fresh fish store and this great place to eat. Our large group was easily accommodated with a perfect view of the ocean. Go here! Good food, helpful staff and scenery.

Had the house salad and split an order of crab legs. Special of the night. Horrible. Dry, tasteless and not worth the money. Change of ownership brought this restaurant way down hill. Ambiance and location don't make up for the price. PASS

Located at the end of a very long pier, this Resturant is filled with charm and good food. Located in Avila Beach, at the end of the road, the views are 360 of the surrounding waters of the pacific and the coast range. We stopped in late for wine and appetizers to round out a week in Avila Beach and... More

I had a view from the upstairs, which could have used a face lift. The cioppino and chardonnay were wonderful and the portion of cioppino was immense. Excellent food and good service

Let me start by saying this used to be a wonderful place in my memory! They have remodeled and the restaurant is nice. Either they have all new staff or they were short staffed but the service was atrocious! Perhaps I should have sat at the bar... They were OUT of crab, so no crabcakes, etc. The clam chowder was...
