We loved our experience at deetjen's. The service was great! They seemed to be happy we were there. We brought our own wine and the server complimented us on our choice. I had the oysters on the half shell with seaweed salad and roe. My gf had the dungeness crab cakes...both were very yummy! If you twisted my arm and made me complain about something it would be that our steaks were slightly overlooked from what we asked for but they were very flavorful! The atmosphere was very cozy and there seemed to be couples there that were really in love. No one seemed to mind us (a lesbian couple)...actually all of big sur is like that :).
