We are local and have eaten here a few times, last night when we walked in the whole restaurant smelled horrible, like they cleaned with dirty water, it was really bad. The food was great and so was the service but they need to do something about the smell, if we were not with friends we would have left without... More

Golden Tee is owned by a local family and not by a vendor. I have been dining there since the 70's. It has a local homey feel and the staff is very accommodating. It's just upstairs from the main terminal. You can park in the premium parking lot right below the restaurant and they will validate your parking. They have... More

I ended up dining here at the recommendation of the Airport director. He said it was essentially a local favorite. I was skeptical, given it was an Airport restaurant recommended by the Airport director (in addition to other choices), given he was dining with me....but no regrets! Yes, it isn't in downtown on Cannery Row, but you know...who cares? Good... More

This was a good meal for four, we had the Cobb salad, the eggs Benedict, and the chicken dumpling soup. The soup was exceptionally good, and so were the eggs. The Cobb was fine, I just do not like iceberg lettuce. Let me mention the service: it was truly exceptional. For the other reviewers who think this place has gone... More

Wondering if there has been a change of ownership at this restaurant. It has been quite good in the past. My husband and I were with family yesterday and everyone's dinner was practically inedible. I had the worst sand dabs ever and even the rice was terrible. The spaghetti and meatballs was tasteless and my husband who loves pasta left... More

We landed in Carmel hungry and ready to eat. We were told that the sand dabs and the calamari were worth stopping for. We sat down around 830pm and were pleased with the service. I ordered the sand dabs - I'd say the salad was fresh, the sand dabs and twice-baked potato was good, and the wine selection was reasonable.... More

Okay, so I am a food snob and as a self-made foodie I am a restaurant collector and will eat anywhere at least once. The Golden Tee at the Monterey airport is on the top of my list for a unique and wonderful dining experience. As my friends know, I collect bartenders as a hobby and while waiting for a... More

One thing we have learned about taking trips is that if you wanna find the best places to eat, ask a local. After spending way too much money at a tourist trap restaurant at Fishermans Wharf, we asked the lady at AAA where she would eat. She told us the locals, herself included, love the Golden Tee at the airport.... More

Yes, yes, I know it is an airport restaurant but believe me, for more decades than I care to acknowledge, the place has been the place for calamari and it still is. It is an absolute must for a calamari lover---how they make it so tender I do not know but it is superb. You can sit and watch the... More

We hadn't been able to get breakfast where we stayed the night before and so we were delighted to find this most unexpected treasure. We had a very good cooked breakfast (decent price), served by pleasant staff whilst looking out to Monterey Bay. It could not have been better and looking at the other reviews I can't wait to go...
