Good Food - Great Service = Thumbs Up!

They have all the regular foods you'd expect, but also some chef creations to wet your appetite! Sounded pretty odd 'Soup of the Day' being brussel sprout & squash...especially since I'm not a huge brussel fan...BUT it was amazing (really, really). Takes a good chef to pull that one off!

9-12 beers on tap. A few fire pits and a slightly younger crowd than other places. Parking lot and fast service. Otherwise - not anything special.

Came here for a late lunch on a Sunday as the spot across the street had a 2o min wait. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. We had the clam chowder bowl and fish and chips. Loved both. Generous portions of fish and crispy fries. Hubby had an IPA. A bit pricy overall but delicious food. Waiter was perfect, checking... More

Casual, relaxed with some lively rock music. Appetizers were good, as was the glass of wine and the mellow sounds from the live band. And, it was within walking distance of our hotel.

We were looking for a nice place with some beer, appetizers, and a view. We found it here. Totally happy with the beer and food choices with a friendly atmosphere AND terrific view. Would highly recommend!

Food was very good, the service was pretty good. The four of us had a good meal, especially the fish stew, with a good broth and plenty of fish. We ate outside on the back terrace, where it seemed a bit quieter than the entry patio of main room.

Be prepared for some wait on a Saturday afternoon. This is a popular place (drive off the Hwy 1, all the way down to the marina and around the shopping center to find it - it's a huge restaurant across from the marina). We enjoyed our fish and chips ( really nice fish and light batter) as well as the... More

We stopped off here on our way back from Monterey. We just sampled the wine and beer before continuing our journey. There was a huge selection of beers, all brewed on the premises and a great selection of local wines. It has a large terrace with heaters and plenty of tables. Recommended.

Their location is perfect for us, as it is very near where we stay. It has patio area if the weather is nice and our last visit, we elected to eat outside. We really enjoyed it and got to visit with others eating close by. Not had a bad meal on any visit we've had. I really enjoyed a shrimp... More

Second time I have been here and thought first time was just good experience because I was hungry and anything would taste good! This place lived up to second time around expectations. The food was great..the chowder and fish tacos were amazing. The staff was friendly but not way over the top. Don't pass this one by. Its a little... More
