Decent food with a fantastic view

We sat out in the ocean view room and had a decent dinner with a fantastic view. Watched a sea otter swimming and playing while we ate. Service was decent. Management was very welcoming and cordial. Deserts were fantastic, better than the dinner it seemed. All in all, a solid experience. Would go... read more

Our overall dinning experience with this restaurant was "Rush, Rush!" We ordered two appetizers--one cold and one hot--and main courses. The oysters came first, and we were just beginning to eat oysters, the hot appetizer came. A few minutes later, the main courses came in. We told the server to slow down on serving and she said the kitchen already... More

After spending the day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, my wife and I asked at the information desk if they could recommend a good local restaurant. The information personnel recommended The Fish Hopper restaurant on the pier in the Cannery Row area. We decided to give the place a try. After having a drink in the bar, we were seated... More

This was my second visit to the Fish Hopper. Several months ago I came here upon a suggestion from a friend. I was not expecting too much but the dish I ordered exceeded my expectations in every way. This famed entree is the crab and shrimp stuffed lobster. It is served with risotto and veggies. When I happened to be... More

This was my second time dinning at the restaurant. I had the Halibut which was absolutely delicious. It was cooked to perfection! Octavio was our server and he did a fantastic job.

We got seated a little before 5pm, which was an excellent time, because we got a really nice view of the water. Our hostess was very friendly, and gave us some great tips on things to do around the area. Our waiter was very attentive and good. The meal was very tasty, I would definitely recommend this restaurant, if you... More

This restaurant is overpriced for what you receive. We had appetizers for lunch. The Artichoke was not seasoned and the bacon wrapped scallop was totally undercooked and also under seasoned. We would have sent it back but we did not see our waiter again. We ordered the crab cakes but mercifully, the waiter forgot to order them. When we finally... More

We were so happy about lunch that we went back for dinner. Lunch was a very good Clam Chowder in a Bread Bowl (Plenty) and a Shrimp Louie Salad (Note if you want large shrimp order Prawns as "shrimp" in many places are those tiny one inch things which have no taste). Both were excellent and filling. At dinner--be sure... More

My family of 6 had a delightful lunch at the Fish Hopper on our vacation. Our meals were great, and our server Cindy's service was exceptional: she made sure that my gluten-free meal was safe for me to eat, she was super attentive to our needs, and she was enthusiastic and cheerful during every encounter. My daughter commented how wonderful... More
