Hole in the wall good!

Walked in to a nice little cafe with great view! While the seals splashed in the inlet, enjoyed a yummy California Benedict with Avacado and red roasted potatoes. Good value!

It started at the door with two signs - one is seat yourself and one is wait to be seated. So we waited and several staff looked over at us as well as others standing there, but no help. Finally we walked in and asked a server, do we just find our own table and she nodded. Should have turned... More

This was an excellent location for viewing the rock & the water. We really loved the food as well. Very fast service. I had an excellent Morro Bay Burger & my husband had a BBQ chicken sandwich. Really good! Reasonably priced as well.

Wonderful nautical ambiance and a warm welcoming feeling are the first things you notice about this place. My husband and I immensely enjoyed our food and are definitely going to return in the near future!

Fascinating drinks. We enjoyed the "Wkik Waki Woo". Our server was an absolute delight. We had very unhurried service which allowed us to enjoy the view she answered all of our tourist questions. We ate too much but found the food to be good. We couldn't finish the huge servings so had it packaged for home.

Happened upon this great place and had a superb breakfast. Eggs Benedict is a fairly standard breakfast that very few places manage to pull off decently, Otter Rock did it very well. My partner had the breakfast burrito and didn't need to eat until dinner time as the serving was so large. It was also a very tasty burrito. It... More
