Unfortunately I cannot comment on the food as we didn't even eat here. I'd promised the kids fish and chips seeing as we were at the beach so thought this restaurant would be a good choice, sadly this was not to be as there was no fish at all on the kids menu. I asked our server if it would... More

It's disappointing to hear you and your family left without even getting to dine with us. I'd like to think that whoever you spoke with didn't quite understand exactly what you were asking, because we'd always be happy to make sure you're leaving satisfied, and making tweaks to get your daughter the fish and chips she wanted is certainly something...

Visited on a Saturday night so they were busy. The waitress was great, very attentive and friendly. She kept our glasses full and checked in once when the food came. We never had to search for her as she was always near. We got a corner table with a great view of the water and the rock. A bit pricey... More

Sitting to eat while overlooking the beautiful Morro Bay with a great view of Morro Rock. It is not unusual to see otters and pelicans nearby. The variety of sea food is always good and served with a smile.

We truly enjoyed our meal here, the service was very good and the fish that we had (salmon swordfish and albacore) was Mesquite broiled to perfection! We highly recommend reservations especially during the high season's which can be the holidays and summertime. Definitely try the oysters when they are in season & although we didn't have any dessert, everything that... More

I am surprised about the bad reviews I just read, before starting mine. I grew up here but have been gone for decades to Idaho and was, of course, wanting some fresh fish.

We were a group of 5, but happened to be seated right next to a group of 45. I'm glad they were enjoying their time, but boy were they LOUD! When they left we just sat and enjoyed the silence, even though we were done eating. The food was good and they did try to accommodate our gluten free daughter.
