Great place to go before getting on a sport fishing boat. Very good clam chowder. A little on the pricey side though. A bowl of chowder, a side salad and a Ballast Pont Pale Ale can't be beat but the total was $20.00 which seemed a little expensive. But, you're on vacation, so who cares, right?

Get there early on Taco Tuesday because it's a small place and they are always busy. Taco's are to die for, especially the fish and shrimp tacos. Plus they serve beer. Must go to local spot

Casual, relaxed café on the dock with great choices and preparation. Free parking on street within a block or so of restaurant. Outdoor seating overlooking the yachts if you are lucky, but good views from inside too. Not as touristy as the other restaurants near Sea Port Village and the Midway.

We were very lucky to get there early on a quiet evening -- because I can imagine the line going well out the door at this place most of the time. Off the beaten path but right on the water, and near enough to downtown to get there easily if in town for a convention.

I love finding little hole in the wall places like this! Mitch's is sort of hard to find. Only a small sign on the side of a bait shop points the way to the restaurant. The restaurant hangs off the back of the building facing the fleet of fishing boats. There is a small seating area inside and bar-like seating... More

Fish sandwich was insanely delicious with the Mahi Mahi. Fish and chips were stellar as well. Just be ok with sea gull action as they are a bit aggressive if you sit outside.
