Went for our anniversary. Two brothers continue to run the family's restaurant, both tall, salt-n-pepper hair, white shirts and smiles. Excellent service. Good range on the menu. We had the blackened rockfish and the filet mignon(rare) entrees, and started with the seared ahi, which was served on a small bed of greens and vinaigrette. All done beautifully and served with...

stopped at FuFu for a draft beer since the Galley did not open until 5 PM. Should have listened to what the locals said and eaten somewhere else. Dropped over $100 for two and were disappointed. My scallops and asparagus and mashed were swimming on a clear liquid that covered the plate. The waiter said it was a sauce -... More

A visit to Morro Bay cannot end without a visit to the lovely waterfront restaurant. No wonder it is #1 in Morro Bay. We reserved a table on a Sunday night ( which is highly recommended) and were seated by the window with a lovely view of THE Rock!!!!! Clam chowder was as good as we remembered for many years...

Really pleasantly surprised. We sat at the bar, the bartender was so nice and attentive. There were locals there which is a sign that the place is good. Prices of drinks and food were really decent and the location is nice. Food was good. We had a really pleasant time and I would totally go back.

A very pleasant experience. We had the Shrimp Scampi which were large and tasted delicious especially with the garlic dipping sauce. This was accompanied by grilled asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Our other entree was the Seared Ahi Tuna which was properly done I.e. seared rare. One of my favorite dishes. The service was prompt and courteous and overall this... More

My wife said it was the best fish and chips. My seared Ahi Tuna was very good too. Good service, fair price, beautiful view and a sea otter playing in the water off the deck. Very memorable.

Fresh seafood, properly prepared. Helpful table staff and management. Looking forward to returning. This is a smaller, cozy place on the waterfront. Best make a reservation as it is very popular, for a very good reason.

My wife had swordfish and I had blackened rockfish. Both were excellent and the side dishes were wonderful as well. What we really like is that this restaurant uses locally caught fish whenever they can. Wonderful meal with excellent service and view of Morro Bay.
