Don't let the simple exterior fool you...food is delish. Walked the medium distance to Sea Harvest (Also a fresh fish market) after visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Dining room was pretty small (seemed like the large waiting lobby space could better be used for more tables) but since it was not one of the more visited restaurants in the Cannery... More

Wonderful family run restaurant serving fresh seafood from its fish market. Excellent meal. Seafood is all they serve. Their fried platters are great and would suggest the cole slaw.

Based on the reviews, we chose sea harvest over the touristy places with ocean view. The place was crowded (maximum of 36 occupants), but we only had to wait 15 minutes for a table for two. What happened next is not acceptable, after ordering we had to wait 45 minutes for our food. I was on my way to leave... More

After a long day in the Aquarium, looked for a quiet out of the way place (away from the crowds on Cannery Row) and found this small hole in the wall. When you walk in, it actually is a fish shop where you can buy fresh seafood but also has a small area for table service. After getting your seat... More

This is a fish market that has a small dine-in area that is a few blocks removed from the hustle of Cannery Row. Menu is basic but features plenty of local seafood, all of which is fresh. No fancy views or elegant atmosphere, but if you are looking for tasty fresh local Monterey seafood, this is a great spot. Seating... More

Five of us with discerning tastes and palates enamored of excellent food descended upon a hotel concierges recommendation to sup on a phenomenal fish dinner. If you enjoy any type of seafood do not miss this local gem.

My friends and I finished up a morning of diving last weekend and wanted to find a different spot for lunch so we decided to try this place out. There was a slight wait as the tables were all full but we were glad we waited! Checking out the fresh fish for sale definitely helped increase our appetites. I ordered... More

This is a very unique little place. They sell fresh fish and the small restaurant serves very good fish plates. It is not a fancy place but don't let this fool you, the food is very good. My wife and I had their Fish and Chips and we were very happy with the taste and the price. They charge half... More

Just had lunch. Blackened rock fish on rice with veggies. Super good food. Waiters are friendly and on the ball. It also is a fish market, so you can see their operation and it made me feel this was a real fresh fish place.

We were looking for an affordable seafood place during our weekend stay in Monterey. I had read really good reviews of this place and couldn't wait to check it out. We arrived right before the dinner crowd and managed to get seated in about 20 minutes. The restaurant is small and casual. However, service was efficient and friendly. We were... More
