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

When the Jetty reopened and refurbished the fish and chips were excellent. Lately it seems inconsistent as if a different cook on different nights and they don't follow one recipe. Last time the fish pieces were mostly batter with small amounts of fish. We want to support our local business to keep them going as we live close and it... More

The service was excellent and the food decent for the price. The fish seemed fresh and the beer was super cold. All in all a good little place to have a quick dinner.

The Jetty recently revamped their restaurant so we were excited to try it again hoping it would be better than before, the food is okay but nothing to write home about and the choices are slim. I can't believe that a "Seafood Restaurant" would not offer crab cakes on their menu and yet, the Jetty does not have crab cakes.... More

We did not try the new menu because we sat for 20 minutes waiting for someone to take our order. We chose to leave. Service was awful.

My friends have been eating at the Jetty 2 or 3 times per week for the last year. I finally decided I wanted to try it since they love it so much. We ordered the 5 piece fish and chips dinner. It comes with salad, french fries or baked potato, and garlic bread. If you want fresher fish, you will... More

Since Milt revamped the dining room, changed the menu, this is one of Santa Maria's most delightful places for lunch & dinner. It has the very best fish & chips plate I've ever had. Beer batter and a method of deep frying make the Alaska Cod dish really great. Complete list of great beers are offered in draft style.

Sadly no longer in Avila Beach since the Unocal oil spill/cleanup :( Their chowder is wonderful; better than Splash Cafe in my opinion (just different in that it tastes homemade compared to Splash). Anyhow, good food & service - only time we've ever been disatisfied was with a take out order and they gave us our next meal completely free,... More

I used to eat here on several occasions on my way home from high school back in 1984. However, on my last and final visit I became deathly ill after about 1 hour of eating there after I arrived at work. I went home with a fever and sweating and continued to vomit every 5 minutes through the night until... More
