We decided to take in a “Happy-Hour” on a weekday. Much to our surprise we came upon a little, well-established, establishment – The Fishwife Restaurant, located in Pacific Grove, Ca. (known to the locals as “PG”). At 5 PM the place was beginning to get busy. So we quickly ordered a couple of glasses of local Monterey wine and followed it up with the Fishwife Boston (that’s the white one) Clam Chowder. It was some of the best Chowder we’ve ever had. Plenty of clams, just the right texture and incredible flavor – it could be a meal without having anything else on the menu. We followed this with the Fried very-thick Calamari and then a Shrimp, Scallops and Crab sautéed in a Lobster Sauce main course. Our visit became more than a happy hour, but a delightful dinner of scrumptious foods. It’s a definite place to go to when in PG or the Monterey Peninsula area. While the place is a bit ‘past it’s prime’ (this brings down it’s rating). Just to mention, the service was over-the-top. On our rating scale of “A” to “F” the Fishwife gets an “B+”. We would definitely return for a Happy Hour or just a dinner.
