Great local fish

We both had the petrale sole, fresh from Monterey Bay and cooked just right. This is a fish market with table space. Very comfortable diner style. Attentive service. No nonsense good fish!

We went there for lunch and it was packed and we had to wait for 15 mins. The food were pretty good. My husband ordered grilled shrimp cajun style and they were delicious. I ordered Fish and Chips, they are OK - batter was a bit plain. And the clam chowder was no comparison to the New England style.

First time visiting, ordered the fish and chips (thinking that is always a fair representation of a fish place) and the sauteed scallops. Great job on the scallops. Other high end fish options that people ordered around me looked good too. Just average on the the Caesar salad, soup, and fried fish. Must have had plumbing issues because it was... More

The food here was some of the best we had on our west coast trip. The tuna from the grill was excellent and others in our party had fish and chips and shrimp and chips. Everyone commented on how good the meal was. The restaurant is small and has no view of the Bay, but it must be one of... More

Fresh fish presented. You pick whichever you like and tell them how you want it cooked along with sides if desirable. There is also a preset menu if you want your meal designed by the chef. I came in during race weekend after visiting the CVS. I picked out a 12oz cut of King Salmon and had it blackened. It... More

Stopped in for some fish and chips and ended up with Calamari, Shrimp and Fish with some fries. The meal was very prompt and the service was outstanding. Also ordered a plate of peel and eat shrimp. All of the food was fresh and good tasting! I would return to eat here again.

Read about this place and decided to try it out. Half fish market, half restaurant, with extra food items (sauces, mixes, marinades, etc) to purchase. Place was packed with locals enjoying a quiet meal. I had a bowl of clam chowder and salmon with brown rice and fresh veggies. Both were absolutely delicious! Prices were reasonable and service was quick... More

The fish, scallops and prawns were superb, could not have beaten it. However felt the fries let the meal down. Think outside the box. Wedges with skins or chunky (British) chips would have blown the dish away! Staff were lovely and the wine was good so overall a very good experience!

Seeking out a place in Monterey that both served good fish and could accommodate the whims of a toddler; settled upon this place. Our food (kid's fish and chips, grilled fish sandwich, trout dinner) was uniformly good except the cole slaw which was just fair. Nevertheless, good food, good service, good prices - pretty much all you're looking for when... More

This is a fish market/store that also has about 10 tables to eat at. The menu is straightforward and unsurprisingly focussed around fish. We had lunch there and there was a reasonable crowd of primarily locals. We had fish and chips which was fried to perfection, crab cakes, crab salad sandwich and a bowl of clam chowder. Only the last... More
