It was just what we needed after a long day's drive from San Francisco as it was informal and had outdoor seating with a wonderful view so we felt like we were making the most of our one night in Morro Bay. Lots of fried food on the menu, but I was... More

Had some fish and chips here, it wasn't amazing but was decent quality food at reasonable prices. Friendly staff and unbeatable view of Morro rock at sunset. Quick service at the reception, bar and table.

When you walk in and nobody is smiling that should be a clue. We ordered clam chowder and had planned on ordering dinner next, but with the chowder only average and seeing the meals being delivered around us just decided to leave and finish dinner somewhere else.
