Great Food, Excellent Service!

Food was excellent; however, I do not hold that rating to the calamari. We ordered the calamari appetizer; it was breaded very lightly, which was a good thing; however, the squid was rather mushy (since I'm using technical terms), and there just was not enough crunch to it. I could not get by... read more

Decided to check out Monterey on my trip up the coast. Stopped here for lunch. Friendly staff, cool atmosphere sitting outside on the patio with an ocean view. Fish and chips were decent.

This is a wonderful restaurant right on the water with a georgious view of the Monterey Bay. We went down for a tasting for a special event we may be planning in the near future and had a great experience, excellent food and felt very welcomed by the top notch restaurant manager Lance. He gave us excellent service and sat... More

We thought based on the name that it would be a tourist trap, but gave it a try anyway, as the prices seemed more reasonable than some of the other restaurants in the area. The three of us each had an item off the special menu, and they were all delicious. Our waitress was very helpful in describing the different... More

We gave this restaurant a try because there was a very friendly young lady downstairs from the restaurant offering samples of their clam chowder. The place has a very busy interior decor and a matching story about the owner. Our meal was okay and clearly did not match the price. The staff was extremely professional.

I had lunch here today and it was good...not great but good. Unfortunately the tomato sauce on the pasta was very heavy/strong and over powered the crab meat. The best part of the meal was the local chardonnay....wow it was one of the best I have ever tasted. The service was lovely and the view was wonderful. All in all... More

I was in town for a conference, and dropped in for dinner. It was kind of early (6pm?) so the restaurant wasn't crowded. I can see that in the summer season, it probably gets crazy, but it was a pretty pleasant atmosphere. My table was kind-of in the middle of the room, but there are some really lovely views if...

Great discovery here. Friendly staff. Gr8t clam chowda. Cool looking decorations on the wall. Go ahead & read the Louie stories on the wall, it's really funny! Oh ... the food. Yes. It was delicious. We had a great time with family. And the views on the bay are also pretty cool.

Had 2 free cups of their tasty clam chowder when checked-in on Yelp! They also give free clam chowder sample beside the staircase on the ground floor. The restaurant is up on 2nd level. They were able to fit us in, a party of 9, at 6.30pm on a weekend night. Sent text message to us when table is ready,... More

My children loved this this place. However, my meal was not edible. For the first time in my life, I tasted rubbery chicken. I ordered the chicken special, so maybe the chef was in a rush to make the meal as likely a large quantity was ordered. So, the cook cooking chicken at too high temperature ( the leading cause...
