I like the different flavors they have on their menu. Have been going here many years when we travel to Monterey and have never missed having a meal here.

Nestled in a beautiful area is this restaurant that has a very "mission" style adobe finish inside and a lovely fireplace. Please call ahead to get reservations if you want seating near the fireplace or for pretty much any party over 2. We had 3 people with us and they tried to still have us sit at a table for... More

My wife and I shared a sumptuous meal at the Bahama Steak House. I enjoyed the BBQ pork ribs and my wife had a rice bowl with coconut prawns. With a nice bottle of wine and garlic bread, the entire meal was just over $70. We were served by the effervescent and wonderful Jolita, who was extremely friendly and helpful.

If you get there before 6pm, Monday thru Friday happy hours prices prevail. Portions are generous, presentation is elegant , service is friendly and responsive. Lots of convenient parking. Full bar service is at your beck and call, Outside dining is available & pet friendly with heaters available when needed.

A local hangout, Unless you plan on visiting regularly and like to sip beers or wines by a fire pit go elsewhere. For the tourist or diner who wants a good food experience go elsewhere. The food is low to medium quality. The service is average but above average compared to the food. The clientele is dog happy with patrons... More

Our brother and his family were visiting from out of state and had come here in the past. I think they would give this place 2 stars for service and 4 for food. We, on the other hand, think a 1 star is appropriate as our lunches and the service were terrible. SERVICE; First, the place was fairly empty. There... More

Its been a few years since I've been here (when it used to be owned by previous owner - Bahama Billy's). The service was good, but a little slow. The food was a little disappointing. First of all, to be called a steakhouse, you need to be able to judge what the temperature is...when I ordered "medium", its not acceptable... More

The calamari was over cooked, the "T Bone" Tuesday special was not at all special, my wife's dinner was "microwaved" to the point of being overcooked. Service was good, but food was not. The latter is fixable with a good chef.

The locals often still call it Bahama Billy's, and this was my first trip there since the official name change. My companion and I arrived at about 4:30 pm which is not either lunch or dinner. They were willing to serve us either, and the bar flies were beginning to find their regular perch. The decor is not too "in... More

I chose this place because of the pet friendly patio option, but was extremely pleased with my halibut dinner. I would definitely go back if/when I was in the area again.
