We ate here twice. We sat inside once and outside once. The food was okay, but the views were awesome. The staff really went above and beyond. The second time we ate there, we sat outside. My food was good, but my husband was very disappointed with his meal. He ordered some type of fish combo plate. When he told... More

We were more than happy to serve your husband a new meal, Estelita. Our goal is to have all of our customers leave completely satisfied with their visit! I'm very sorry he was disappointed with his first dish, but thankfully we were able to find something that better suited his tastes. Hopefully you can make it back again soon to... More

After securing our hotel reservations down the street for our annual trek from Las Vegas to Cambria, I called to ask if they were accepting reservations for Thanksgiving (this was September), as they normally are first-come, first-served. The lady told me that was still their policy, just make sure to arrive promptly at 5pm (they close from 3pm-5pm). While chatting... More

I'm so sorry about the whole situation. Clearly there was a huge miscommunication on our part, but this isn't an excuse for poor service. We should have handled the reservation mix-up differently, and I apologize. Our goal is to have all of our customers leave completely satisfied, but clearly we missed the mark. If you're willing, we'd love to have... More

This restaurant is very busy as the food is very good and well cooked. The fish is outstanding. It is worth booking to save waiting for a table

Thank you for stopping by! I'm so happy you enjoyed your meal with us -- fresh fish is a hug perk of our location. We actually don't take reservations, but it's definitely a good idea to get here early to avoid a wait. We would love for you to stop by again soon the next time you're in the area!... More

This is not a fancy place - good for anyone, including kids. The food was just fine. Service was above average.

I was just there with my family and this place really wowed us. From the moment we stepped in, the servers were there to welcome us with a smile and guide us to our table. We had the fresh oyster, which came with an amazing wasabi ketchup sauce. The Cajun shrimp and scallop came in an unbelievably tasty sauce. We... More

I can't think of anything that would compliment the fresh oysters more than the wasabi ketchup sauce. It really does give it a kick! My staff will be very appreciative of your feedback about the service as well. It was wonderful to have you visit, and I hope you'll come back again soon, Casey! All the best, John, Owner More

We ate here on a Saturday evening last month. I had been on previous trips at varying times of the day and have never been disappointed. The food is tasty and the fish fresh. The service is prompt and friendly.

Light batter and tasty fish really do make the perfect combination! Not to mention the ocean view isn't half bad either. We're lucky to be in such a great location and have wonderful customers, as well! We'd love to have you back for another Bloody Mary the next time you're in the area. Take care, John, Owner More

We had a nice meal here, and we were surprised at how busy the place was on a Monday night. It's considered among the most popular spots in the little town of Cambria. Wait staff was pleasant and efficient. Decent choice of wine.

We ate dinner here for the 2 evenings we stayed in Cambria. We sat outside on their patio both evenings, drinking wine and enjoying watching the sun set over the ocean. The food was delicious and the service very attentive. Gets very busy, so I would recommend reservations.
