“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

One of the high points of dinner was the view. While we didn't see any sea otters, the view was excellent. The food was very good and portion sizes such that none of us left hungry!! There were four of us in our party and we were all pleased with our selections. Our server was friendly and attentive.

“Great Place for a Drink!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Stopped here after walking / biking Monterey. Good choices of local beers, and a good bar menu. I will be back here again.

The place is much nicer than it looks from teh outside. I thought it was going to be a dive bar from the look, but its is much more upscale inside.

Waitstaff were very friendly.

“Best Salad at Lunch Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great view, attentive and friendly service, then Prosecco followed by a salad of Ahi Tuna, Mango, Papaya, and 3 tasty Coconut Shrimp. I cannot recall enjoying a salad any more than I enjoyed this one. Simply superb!

They made one with Scallops for my wife who is allergic to Shrimp. Pictures are included to entice you.

I will always find time to visit this place when in Monterey, CA.

“Good dinner, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner and drinks at the Fish Hopper on a recent trip to Monterey. The view was spectacular and the sea otters playing around in the water right next to our table provided great entertainment, especially to us east coasters.
