Loved it

We were walking the pier, enjoying the view doing a little shopping. We decided we'd worked up a good appetite and stopped in for clam chowder in a sour dough bread bowl. It was excellent! I've been to many top name restaurants all over New England and this was as good as any place I've been. Had... read more

There are a number of seafood restaurants on Fisherman's Wharf so how to choose? We chose this one at random, based on a quick look at menus and quick look into the restaurants on the Wharf. We were very happy with our choice. There were lots of good points, but for this review I will just give you an example... More

For Saturday lunch. This restaurant was not busy due to the weather. Cram chowder was so creamy and good. Pasta Marinara was fair, but it seemed to me that the pasta was cooked too much.

The seafood was great, and they have a tapas bar if you wish to have a sampler plate. The staff was friendly and efficient.

I was extremely pleased with this restaurant and would definitely recommend to others. I had the Seafood Pasta and it was delicious. There was a variety of fish and it wasn't in a heavy cream sauce, which was nice.

There was a wait at a more expensive restaurant across the way, so we decided to go here! The service is good and the food was very tasty! The parmesan crusted chicken was delicious as was my husband's sardines... Would recommend!

Having just stepped off a whale watching boat ( fantastic) we chose the starter portion of fresh grilled sardines. Totally delicious and truly memorable. Four good sized sardines each was plenty for lunch washed down with a glass of house white wine.... There were lots of things on the menu that also appealed but when I see fresh sardines on... More

I took my wife here for our anniversary and the food and service was great. The mood was right and we sat closer to the kitchen area, so we were able to see the brick oven and feel some warmth from there. Just a lovely area and place to eat.

My husband loved his shrimp Louie, but my clam linguine was blah and tasteless. I had to add salt, pepper and butter to try to get some flavor in it.
