This is an inexpensive place to have lunch over the water. We didn't stay for the night life but it gets rocking with live music.

Enjoyed our breakfast here with views of the water and Morro Rock. Nice breakfast selection. Food was good and the atmosphere very relaxed on a Sunday morning.

We enjoyed eating here outdoors on the deck. We had fish and chips as well as shrimp and chips. The service was good considering they were really busy and a little short-handed. The food was delicious and hot and were quite tasty coupled with a beer. Enjoyed that we could look out over the bay and watch the boats, kayaks... More

This little cafe has great food a bit pricey for seafood which you would think the main attraction should be...steaks are out of the question price was extreme...the view is awesome the music was live and a very good musician was at the helm overall experience was very pleasant

Four of us showed up for dinner, we put our name in a minutes later seated with a great view of the bay. Around 8.30pm the live jazz began and our night was completely enjoyable. The food was excellent, wine very good, service terrific.

The seafood was very good and the view was nice, but the Servers really didn't seem to care much about customer service.

We just had light snacks, it was great. It was packed as I think they have music every night. I know we got to enjoy that! The service was great. A must do when you are in Morro Bay! I so love Morro Bay!

We went here because it was supposedly dog friendly. Most of the bar staff were friendly and accommodating to us humans and our pooch, but our waitress didn't have much of a personality. The fish and chips were good - not greasy, but the burger was overcooked, dry and tasteless. Not impressed. Best part was the view.

We were driving through Morro Bay. The plan was to have breakfast than spend the morning at the beach for my nephew's first time on the beach. We used TripAdvisor to find a different restaurant but after driving by it didn't look children friendly, so we drove around the block and found this cute little place, Otter Rock Café. I'm... More

Loved that the café had non-meat options that were good to choose from. There was something on the menu for all ages and the food was Great. Will eat here again.
