I had the Drakes’ Sanddabs, lightly breaded and grilled with lemon caper sauce. Absolutely delicious - the fish was prepared perfectly and the sauce was scrumptious. Rice and fresh vegetables were served alongside. I also enjoyed a delicious Mojito. The nautical theme is very fun; our booth had a model of the USS Bounty and interesting information about the famous... More

We stopped in this restaurant after reading several good reviews. It is very conveniently located across the street from the Marriott, where we were staying. Upon walking downstairs we were immediately greeted and seated. Our server was extremely polite and timely. The chili was wonderful, although a bit on the spicy side. We loved it as we are from Texas... More

I love their set up of a big ship. The bartender will serve a custom drink if you describe them your taste.

This place has been around a long time. British pub theme. Beverages are good. We ordered fish and chips which can only be described as fair. Soggy batter and squishy fish. Calamari nothing special. Clam Chowder and bread was the best offering we had.

Visited this place based on a recommendation from another website. We were not disappointed at all. It had nautical theme of ships and anchor decor. I particularly liked the big galleon ship in the glass case. Their waitresses were wearing English flag bow ties. Try the following: Plymouth platter - big serving and I think it's meant to be shared... More

My boyfriend and I visited this lovely restaurant after hiking in Big Sur. We had spent the night out in the wilderness and were hungry for something hot. Knowing how much I love all things British he suggested we eat here. The staff was very nice, seated us and were attentive. They did not mind that we were walking in... More

As she was telling me about it, the guy in the seat behind us piped up and said she was correct. Well now after having been there myslef last night with my daughter,... More

When I travel, I tend to gravitate to these types of places for a reasonably priced meal at the bar. This more than filled that need. I went right in the middle of the Giants quest in the World Series and the ruckus was understandable. Even with this, I did get a good seat at the bar, the beer was... More
