We ordered off the Senior Menu for lunch. Had 4, yep, only 4 shrimp on a bed of rice. This for a fish place? Is that all they could afford, just 4 shrimp? Guess so. The 4 shrimp weren't even that special, the place was touting their special grilling. Wasn't impressed. Service was spotty. We had to flag down a... More

I'm sorry to hear lunch didn't hit the spot, Soushi. It sounds like you were hoping for a bit more shrimp -- if you ever have any questions about our portion sizes, please don't hesitate to ask your server. We'd be happy to find you the perfect dish! As for our team, we always treat each and every staff member... More

My family and I went here on a Friday night because we didn't make reservations anywhere (oops) and the grand kids were hungry & tired. The positive is they were very friendly, got us right in for a table of 6 and the service was very good. The food arrived in a timely manner, so that's also nice. While I... More

We're sorry to hear you weren't blown away by your meal, Beth. Each and every dish should come out piping hot and full of flavor, so it's disappointing that this couldn't be said about your crab cakes and snapper. If there's ever an issue, please don't hesitate to let your server know. There's nothing more important to us than making... More

We went there 2 nights in a row. Normally, I would have been more adventurous and tried another place but it was just so pleasant and easy the first time. We went back to try the early bird menu BUT the senior menu, available all the time, was a great bargain the first night for 2 of our party. They... More

Great American Fish Co is a great restaurant on the waterfront in Morro Bay. They have very good deals for seniors. I had the mesquite grilled fish dinner which included a choice of rice (or French Fries) and a tasty red cabbage side. I also ordered their New England Clam Chowder which was quite good. The mesquite grilled fish was... More

We've been to Morro Bay a few times, and always try to stop-in here. The food was great, and the view super. I opted for a steak and scallop combo, which was superb and cooked perfectly. We'll continue to come-in when in town...

With such a high ranking we didn't think we could go wrong but our seafood combo platters were overcooked and, for the price, very skimpy.

This is the second time we have been here, and it is really a fine seafood restaurant. Scallops fresh and interesting entrees. Staff attentive, and view of harbor at sunset is always nice. Shrimp cocktail was delicious. Good casual place for dinner

This restaurang serves very fresh sea food and has a great view over the harbor. There are a lot of wild sea lions in the water just outside of the restaurant. A lot of the times you can see them through the windows

This used to be a great restaurant, but I'm not sure it's been cleaned in 30 years. It started in the waiting area, where there were a half dozen flies circling just inside the door. A glance at the windowsills showed bodies of dozens more. Then the water: tastes like mold, and no amount of lemon slice can cover it.... More

While watching the fading light of day behind Morro Rock, we ordered our dinner. Our daughter just had to go to GAFCO (Great American Fish Company) for a shrimp cocktail and clam chowder. So we drove from San Luis Obispo to eat at one of our favorite places. I had the seafood salad and my husband had barbequed fresh fish.... More
