Fresh Seafood at Affordable Prices

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... read 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 food was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was great. I had never been here before but felt right at home. Very comfortable and great value.

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

Since they have closed down the Jetty in Lompoc, I've eaten here several times and always order their clam chowder. They serve big portions so I usually have a to go box for my leftover. Service is okay.

The Jetty is my comfort food neighborhood seafood restaurant when I travel (frequently) to Santa Maria. Service is prompt, the food is tasty and hot, the quantities are more than sufficient, substitutions for sides are not discouraged, and the price is very reasonable. It is not for coats and tie crowds; formal attire includes clean T-shirts and shorts. And the... More

Came here expecting all sorts of sea food dinner but it seems more like just another fast "sea" food place comparable to a long john silver.

My husband & I try to eat at the Jetty once a week but the sides REALLY need to be re-vamped! We are hoping they start serving fresh steamed vegetables with the meals, instead of the same old fries, onion rings, cole slaw, etc...We are not the only customers looking for healthy options! I'd love to see a lobster tail... More
