This is a very casual restaurant with the option to sit inside or outside. Staff is great and make every effort to please the customer. We happen to come in very close to closing time and still received excellent service. They had ran out of my menu item choice and they offered to provide me with a tasting of the... More

We eat here whenever we are at the central coast. The fish and chips are good and their salmon bisque is awesome. The place is usually crowded and the tables arranged tightly and not enough room to even put your purse somewhere except on the floor under the table. We enjoy it here.

I love this place! We eat here on every trip to Coast. Never disappointed! Fish and chips are awesome! Fresh oysters served with garlic and butter...out of this world. Prices are good and you leave very full for what you get! We eat on outside terrace and they have great entertainment evertime. I love this place.....gotta check it out!

It was a very busy Friday night so we arrived expecting to wait to be seated. We were told it would be a half an hour, but they beat their estimate by several minutes. Our drink order was taken immediately after we were seated, but my water was delivered with lemon rather than without lemon as I had very specifically... More

This is a casual place, and might not be for everybody due to that. But even though it's a 2-hour drive, we have been there probably 6-8 times in 7 months. Today we went over for a day at the beach, and this is where we kicked things off for my birthday. The seafood is as fresh as it gets.... More

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
