Food was great, and atmosphere was very comfortable. The open air dining really gives you a relaxed feel and makes for an enjoyable experience. I was very pleased with the speed with which the food came to our table, and it was all great! Would recommend

We had Claim and Crab chowder in sour bread. I was debating as I come from a place by the sea and I'm used to eat fresh fish but that was simply amazing!!! And a great experience!

The prawns were delish! This was a Saturday night and they had a terrific blues band, Willie G's, that rocked the house and had everyone up dancing (8-~11:30).

We stepped in for some much needed happy hour drinks, and ended up going with the Sangrias which were very yummy and just what we needed to keep going with our day. Service was a little slow. We had some calamari to go with the sangrias and it was delicious, highly recommend to have as an appetizer.

Expect to be waiting at busy times. The food is worth waiting for and is at least fresh. Despite being busy, the server remained cheerful.

Pretty solid for what's a tourist trap on Fisherman's Wharf. Burger was fine, and the garlic fries were yummy. We had a whole dungeoness crab also, which was good, and meaty. Needed to ask twice for crackers for the crab, but service was friendly and good. Not too slow either. It was busy on a Saturday but sat outside which... More
