Great Seafood at the Jetty Folks!

I recently traveled to visit my family in my hometown and as all of you may know whenever I'm on the Central Coast, I let my inner foodie run wild! I've known about this restaurant for a very long time (as my hairline can tell you) but unfortunately living in the Bay, I haven't been In years and... read more

Santa Maria's best kept secret. Amazing, friendly, personal service. Yummy clam chowder. Generously sized pieces of cod in the baskets & tacos. Big menu that includes seafood baskets, salads, wraps, burgers, appetizers, & tacos. Local beers on tap & many bottles favorites. We will definitely be back!

The Jetty is nothing fancy, just good,fresh seafood at affordable pricing. Have been eating here for years and the beer battered fish and chips are consistently good. Salmon always a good choice too - my wife and daughter both had it and loved it. I'm a "meat and potatoes" kinda guy, but my wife tells me they need better side... More

When we arrived, we were immediately greeted and quickly seated. The menu has plenty to choose from and seems reasonably priced. We ordered two salmon dinners and a basket of fish and chips. Everything was delicious if not wildly innovative (I agree with one of the reviewers who suggested more veggie options). They had a good beer selection and nice... More

The portions are not as large as they used to be. I ordered Calamari Basket and it comes with fries or coleslaw. In the past I asked if I could get half and half and they accommodated me. This time I was told I couldn't do that but the manager to appease me said I would get the fries and... More

I've been going to the Jetty since 1980, maybe earlier. This was always a great place to take a date or business clients. It was always excellent. But no more. I was there with my mother and other family on Nov. 5 and it was a joke. The menus were just paper and sticky at that. I thought these were... More

Six of us enjoyed lunch. The server, Madelyn, was there to take drinks orders as soon as we sat down. Nice menu selection and we all ordered different selections. The clam chowder bowl was really good but maybe the bread was a bit old. The fish, chips and coleslaw was outstanding. Calamari some of the best we have ever had.... More
