Great Service, from Danny at the Fish Hopper

Good food, and great service. The place was full to capacity, but we were able to put in our order, and we received our appetizer very quickly. When we finished our appetizer, our meals arrived shortly. Danny was great, we never felt neglected, or rushed. Was a nice lunch.

We had not been to any restaurants in Monterey, but were given a coupon by a local merchant to try the Fish Hopper. Item indicated that if you ordered an entree, you would get a free appetizer. So, that said, we went. When we displayed our coupon, it was not just any appetizer, but limited to a specific selection (3)... More

No complaints on the wait staff, actually "mano" i think his name was, was awesome. However, the rude and snobby ladies at the front almost made me leave. They definitely need some people skills. "Have you been here before, -no, read our phone and crying baby policy"really? needless to say, i was not at all impressed, hopefully management can get... More

Enjoyed a great family dinner on a long weekend in Monterey. Food was much better than the Chart House which we went to the night before. Had the Macnut Halibut which was excellent, my wife had the prime rib. Brent was an awesome server, got our kids their meals quickly. Bryn made the dinner special and took care of us... More

We opted for the Fish Hopper in Monterrey since we also ate at the sister property in Kona, Hawaii. The view is priceless, right on the bay. That alone was a huge selling point. Our server was wonderful. He answered questions we had about the bay and was right on top of everything. I am pretty sure his name was... More
