Cosy restaurant overlooking Morro Rock and a small anchorage. Food was excellent...had fish and chips, mussels, and clam chowder with garlic toast. All items were served hot and portions were very generous. Would definitely go back, and would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

Ate here on a recommendation. Price was decent, but food was not fresh at all and we were sorry we ate here. Sunset was nice and drinks were decent, though.

The views while you sip some wine & wait on dinner is great. We had fun watching the sea otters & sea lions swim right outside the window. The portions for dinner were impressive, sometimes I feel like dining in travel destinations the portion for the price is lacking, not the case here. Do yourself a favor & make sure... More

My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful sunset while dining here. We passed through Morro Bay mid-week, and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. I had the fried seafood platter, and it was delicious. I am a big guy and I could not finish my plate! The pricing seemed very reasonable for a tourist location.

We love the appetizers, Happy Hour, Clam Chowder, Shrimp Louie, Garlic Bread and everything we have had over the years. The staff is very well trained and Dan is a wonderful Host and Paul the owner is often there making sure everyone is getting good service and food. This is a great place for dates, business meetings and family parties.

The food was good, but not super great for the price. The fish in the Fish and Chips was very light and seemed fresh, however it was quite greasy. I've had lots of great ungreasy F&C in other locations, so I know it can be better. The place was a bit pricy, but given the location, was worth it. We... More
