“Dinner with a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

There were quite a number of people queueing for a table and we were in line for about half an hour. However, once we entered the restaurant we were shown to a table on a pier overlooking the ocean. There was a large choice of different foods on the menu with the emphasis on seafood but I had a very good pasta meal and a friend chose steak. Service was friendly and efficient, our waitress even agreeing to take a photo of us, and the bar area appeared to be very popular. Pricewise it wasn't the cheapest eating place but I would recommend it as a special treat.

“What a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Enjoyed a spectacular lunch overlooking the pacific after touring the aquarium - which is a must also! While Cannery Row might be a bit too 'touristy' - it is worth having lunch here. Wine list is more than adequate, and quite reasonably priced. Chowder is incredible!

“Great food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

The food was great! I had the coconut shrimp and tuna salad and ceviche everything was delicious! The atmosphere was really nice and it was overlooking the water. Our server was very good.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

This restaurant is right on Cannery Row and most of the tables will give you a view of the ocean. Friendly staff and great food, a little pricey though. But as tourist's in tourist traps I guess this is expected. They had these huge drinks full of either rum or tequila will try to upload a photo.... Overall a great place to eat but again pricey so if you are on a budget this may not be for you.

“We will be back.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Had a great server, Krystal. She had good recommendations, a great attitude, and even though she was new to this restaurant, very professional. We had drinks and appetizers. Although we sat at a high top in the lounge area, we had a view of the harbor. We plan on returning tomorrow for lunch.
