Went here with my family while on vacation. We were seated at an outside table. It was a beautiful day and our view was pretty amazing. The layout of the restaurant ensures that no matter where you are seated, you've got a great view. Our server was Cindy. She was very friendly and personable. She also had a lot of... More

My wife and I have to enjoy at least one dinner here when we are in Monterey. The food is excellent and fresh. Prepared well and every table has a view of the ocean being on a pier. The service is good with friendly wait staff that checks in with you just right, not too often and not that you... More

We eat at the Fish hopper minimally once, usually twice when visiting Monterey. In our opinion they have the best fried calamari and clam chowder in the area, and we have tasted most of them. If you sit in the outdoor area you see a, beautiful and active ocean and people, singles, couple and families, enjoying the easily accessed small... More

the food was amazing. Pricey but worth it. We strolled in right off the beach sand and all and were still treated as valued guests. This is also a perfect place for a nice dinner out. Views all around of the ocean

This large restaurant, beautifully located, makes the very most of its location. Top prices, small portions, average food. I had crab-stuffed prawns with pasta. Nice sauce, but only 4 medium-sized prawns with a small amount of crab meat. Service was OK, but I certainly wouldn't go there again.

Great view of the harbor if you sit out on the pier. Food is average but nice for being in the middle of the strip. Wine and service were very good though.
