“Great location for a special occasion dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2009

I would like to thank Joanne and all the staff at the Fish Hopper in Monterey, CA for a wonderful day-before-the-wedding dinner for all my out of town guests. The food was incredible and they set up a lovely seasonally-decorated table. I could not have been more pleased! I would highly recommend the Fish Hopper.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2009

What we liked about Fish Hoppers was the "early bird "menu. As long as this menu is posted outside they will honor it. There were plenty of selections, the price was about $15 and the food wonderful. The portion size was just right for dinner and we were seated by the window with a wonderful view. Couldn't have been happier with the experience.

“Tourists - don't eat here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2009

We were visiting from Canada and went for s seafood meal on Cannery row. We paid $30 for and entree, plus desert, when the people at the next table got an appetizer, entree and desert from the "local" menu for $15.00. We were offended that tourists are being gouged by a restaurant while locals get a special deal. So, ask for the local menu or stay away!

“Food and service was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2009

We were able to get a table on the patio. We had clam chowder in a bread bowl and a steak dinner. Both were excellent. The staff were always attentive, and you can't beat eating with the ocean waves crashing below.
