Great for take away too

All was great and fresh and nicely wrapped for takeaway to a picnic on the beach. Very friendly helpful man advised as behind the fish counter.

Excellent fish and chips. Attentive, polite service. Clean and bright. This was a good find close to Cannery Rd. $5 kids fish and chips - a bargain.

Asked an employee of the Monterey Aquarium about where to eat, somewhere that the locals would eat at as opposed to the touristy stuff along Cannery Row, not that those are bad, just wanted something different. Anyway, she recommended Sea Harvest and we were glad that she did. This is a fish market with a relatively small area set aside... More

We had dinner here and I had the tilapia whilst my partner had the breaded scallops. Portions were generous and very tasty. The atmosphere was relaxed with some character and the service was very good and prompt. Beware that space is limited as the seating area is relatively small, so arrive early/late to be assured seating or be prepared to... More

The fish market is beautiful and real and suggests (correctly) that your meal will be direct rather than fancy, plainly flavorful rather than whimsical. My party was in the mood for fried fish and ordered the fish and chips, the mixed prawn and calamari fry, and fried oysters. The fish and chips was perfect, the mixed prawns and calamari were...

Have travelled all over America in last 2 months, and this is right up in top three restaurants visited. Great food, cooked well, unbelievable value, staff who knew their stuff and were friendly. Half cafe half shop, totally fab.

Great food, no crowds (as it is near aquarium, but off the beach), casual comfortable vibe. This place really is a fish market too,

A real fish market with real people making great seafood meals. Small place, so the wait can be considerable, but this is the place. No pretensions, no fluff, reasonable prices, away from the tourist madness, but close enough that if you are one (as we were) you can still get there easily. Sufficient designated parking.

This is a great no frills no reservations, family run fish market that will cook any to their fresh sea food any way you want it. The location is off the beaten path, the decor is nonexistent, you will probably have to wait for a table but the food is cooked perfectly, the accompanying vegetables are fresh and crisp and...

Not a fancy place but neither was the bill. Ahi tuna was fabulous and my husband really enjoyed the sole. Even the rice was great. We had to wait a little bit for a table But after we were seated our food came out quickly. We are going back tomorrow before we leave town
