Right off the boat fish….

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

Good food, delicious, great service, even take out was wonderful. I had Blue and Pacific oysters to go, very fresh. Came back for dinner with my sister and four year old nephew. I had the swordfish as our server, Bernie, recommended, lemon buttered, which can only be described as succulent. The fish was so fresh. We had the rock crab... More

Very small place guarantees a wait. We waited 30 minutes for a table on off peak hours which doesn't seem unusual. The food taste good, no imagination on the preparation.

When we spent the night in Monterey, California, we needed to find a place to eat dinner. The Sea Harvest Fish Market and Restaurant came highly recommended. The first thing you notice when you walk in is that yes, it is indeed a fish market. There is a counter display case filled with fresh fish. But in front of that... More

Located just a block off Cannery Row, it was easy to get to and parking was free. We got the fish and chips and clam chowder. The fish was fresh and tender, the batter light and crisp and the serving portion (4 large pieces) was generous. The chips (French fries) were just average--I could have left them off the order...

A simple fish shop with the front of the shop made into a small restaurant, or really more a cafe, but don't be put off if it is good quality fish that you want, simply prepared and presented and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed this as much as restaurants at twice the price because they delivered much more than our... More
