The food was delicious, the atmosphere cozy and laid-back and the service excellent! If you want to have an authentic fisherman like experience - that's the place to go.

Came here while visiting family. Had the Captains Combo, which was excellent. Expect to spend $20/person +, but worth it... They buy a lot of fish fresh from local fishermen...

Friendly service, Seafood is very fresh. Large portions were more than satisfying. My taste buds were excited by the mango salsa for the fish tacos. They have a sinful banana, cinnamon chimichanga. We had to share it amongst 7 because we were stuffed.

Great food and really nice people. I had the rock cod and my hubby had the seafood kabobs which included shark. I've come to Morro Bay twice a year for 40 or so years and this will be a dinner spot we'll return to. Very casual, homestyle atmosphere.

We ate here twice last weekend and couldn't have been happier. Fish is right off the ship, cooked perfectly, and served (well, they call your name and you go get it) in rustic, outdoor patio overlooking the fishing fleet. Live music Friday and Saturday nights. Like most waterfront places here, they close early (6 on Friday, 8 on Saturday.). Very... More

Excellent fresh fish in a classic old school setting. Fried seafood for those seeking the local grease and grilled/raw/steamed bivalve deliciousness for me. Super fresh, basic but convivial vibe and reasonably priced seafood in a groovy seaside location.

Dockside Too is an informal outdoor restaurant with live music everyday from lunchtime until closing. The food is great and it is the closest restaurant to Morro Rock, so the views are fantastic. We ate there three times during the five days we were in Morro Bay.

My husband and I are camping in the Morro Bay Area for a couple of nights and wanted a nice fish dinner in town and ventured upon this great restaurant. We were seated immediately considering we would have had a 30 minute wait at a restaurant a few doors down. The service was good but the food was excellent. All... More

This restaurant is located on the embarcadero in the Morro Bay harbor. The seating is on the patio. Tables are available on a first come basis. Shade is provided by umbrellas. Orders are placed inside. They offer a variety of sea food dishes served very casually. The dishes are well prepared and the sea food is very fresh. Fish were... More

Check out the quick-order smoked seafood bar. Seating outside is nice. It's informal. Menu takes a few minutes to figure out; but worth taking the few minutes to decipher. Smoked oysters! Smoked scallops!
