Gem on the waterfront

I've visited Monterey at least 50 times and never been to this restaurant. What a gem! Sat on the patio overlooking the harbor and enjoyed the delicious local sand dabs! The bonus was they welcomed my dog on the patio. Some of the best clam chowder I've ever had...and I'm usually big on chowder... read more

We ate here last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I always enjoy finding places a little off the beaten path and this place surely qualifies . Although the address says Cannery Row, its actually past the tourist area near the Coast Guard station.Set away from the main road it overlooks the wharf. I ordered the Dungeness crab cappeletti and... More

This place is my favorite to go out to dinner. My first time writing a good review on a restraunt. The staff are all extremely nice and their seafood pasta is my favorite in all of Monterey! I have lived here for 16 years and go here extremely often. Never fails to dissapoint!!

The food, the people, the energy. All around a great place to dine at. I highly recommend "olivia's chicken tenders" even though this resturant is known for their tasty seafoods

I, my son and his wife, and their two children, went to this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviewers ratings, and we were not disappointed. The menu is very extensive, with a corresponding price range. We all enjoyed good food, well-prepared, and we also enjoyed very good service. We were staying in Seaside, and the restaurant was only about 10 min.... More

I'll start by saying that based on other glowing reviews of this restaurant, perhaps this was just a bad day. The crab pasta was served on the wrong pasta and the dish contained very little crab and a lot of artichokes, mushrooms and other filler. The seafood salad was no value compared to others available in the Monterey area. The... More

Great restaurant with very nice staff. We called ahead for reservations just in case it was packed and we had no issues when we arrived 10min early. The place was full and they did an amazing job getting us food fast that was hot and very good! They even have some parking for guests!!!

My husband and I were recommended this restaurant by a local. This person told us it's kind of a local's place as it is before Cannery Row and there is not much else around so there are not a lot of tourists on this pier. We were definitely not disappointed. I ordered the lobster. It was an 8 oz tail... More
