Grilled fish is really good

We had oysters and crab salad as appetizer. Oysters where very good. Crab. Was ok. But the grilled rockfish and calamari where really the best. We recommend this place.

I can't say that we found anything negative about this place because it was completely satisfactory. That said, we didn't feel it quite deserved such a high TA rating as the food was very much the same as what was on offer at several places in that area. We would return but our expectations would be rather lower that they... More

We parked in the parking building and when we came out we decided it was lunch time and we should grab a bite before hitting the aquarium. The Sea Harvest was right across the street and what better way to prepare for looking at fish than a fish lunch. What a great find. The service was very good and the... More

We saw the reviews and gave this place a try, very glad we did. Small place with simply décor and market feel.....wow the fish was great and the price fantastic! We had great service and came back a second night....ask for the calamari appetizer, it is not on the menu. Would have went there every night we were in Monterey.

Not any fresher than a restaurant that's also a fish market. Take a short walk up the street from Cannery Row and have a "locals" meal! Try the calamari and chips or the combo sea food and chips. You'll enjoy the clam chowder too!

This is off the main drag of Cannery Row tourist traps. We try hard not to eat at chain restaurants so Bubba Gump Shrimp holds no appeal for us. This place looks like it's a locals hangout. Friendly service, very good food, very good prices considering the area. I got a grilled rock cod sandwich which was crazy good and... More

Great place to get fresh fish prepared simply and well. Downright cheap compared to other Monterey Bay eateries. This is your dinner spot, whether you're a foodie or a thrifty tourist.

One of the best places in Monterey to get good, fresh seafood. The staff are friendly and service is efficient. Parking is off-street but limited. Close to the Monterey Aquarium. Prices are a little high, but well worth it in quality and quantity.

I've been looking for a place like this for a while. It's a casual place, plenty of families and bustling around. It's small though, odds are you will have a wait if you're in a group. We were sat immediately since we were a party of two. Beer and wine is available. Staff is pleasant, friendly and helpful. The food... More
