Nice view and pretty good food/service

Stopped in for lunch after wandering Wharf. Looked chaotic but we sat down and servers were right there with menus. Service pretty fast and food was actually pretty good, all on a sunny busy Sunday afternoon. Outside dinning protected from the wind and the birds (mostly). Enjoyable hour plus of... read more

I cannot tell you about the food because we just stopped in for a drink while visiting the pier. I can however tell you the best drinks around are here at Longboard's Grill. The love of my life had a Long Island Iced Tea and believe me one of these is all you can drink. It is huge and potent.... More

We arrived at opening, 11:30 am, and were the first customers of the day. We decided to split a Harbor Burger which turned out to be a good decision - it is quite large, spendy and one of the best burgers I have eaten! I ordered an 805 Blonde Ale with lunch and wish I had bought a six-pack to... More

Actually the food was good. I had a turkey burger and fries. However, before the food arrived I watched as the pigeons walked across the tables where people were going to eat. Once the people were seated, the tables were not wiped down. During the meal I turned around to find three pigeons sitting on the back of the chair... More

We ate in the patio area of the upstairs after a whale watching trip. The restaurant is on Stearns Wharf, and from our table we watched sailing lessons in the harbor. Very good fish & shrimp tacos and excellent service.

Food was as it's name implies, grill fare. Good selection of bar seafood and good selection of drink variety and beer on tap. The staff was super friendly and despite being a single woman traveling solo, I had a relaxed visit.

Ate here for a late lunch with the sun shining. Word to the wise, it gets really hot outside. The free peanuts are fun to enjoy waiting for your food. The food is average at best but the view of course is superb.

Brought my Indiana cousin, her husband and their friends for lunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The menu is varied with something for all tastes. Food is standard fare prepared well. But the real reason to come here is the view, you cannot beat it anywhere. Because of the glass walls you will be protected if it's windy.
