We had a great meal here sitting on an outside terrace looking across the ocean and listening to the waves below. Couldn't be better. This was a memorable meal with excellent service.

This fish and chips joint is on cannery row in Monterey, which is a very touristy location. However, when sitting outside that all fades away as you look out over seals, sea lions, and sea otters in the surf to the ocean. The food was okay but bland. The fish and chips were fried perfectly but had no seasoning, and... More

The staff was outstanding, courteous and helpful. The food to die for, in a good way of course. Try their specials, I had the sand dabs, they were perfect, crispy and tender. Desserts are spectacular, don't miss them. The chocolate mousse is so decadent!

This is definitely the best clam chowder anywhere in the West. We have been here several times and it's still as good each time we visit. The view is great of the ocean also.

I went to the Fish Hopper with my son, his girlfriend and my grandson yesterday for lunch. The food was outstanding and service was exceptional. Cindy, our waitress, was so kind and very attentive. I plan to go back again in the next couple of months for dinner with my husband. KP

We looked forward to a beautiful, memorable birthday dinner. I called ahead to reserve a good table for my best friend’s birthday dinner. We planned to arrive at 5 pm for dinner. I was told on the phone that seating would not be a problem early in the evening and if the restaurant was busy it would be a short... More
