We were on a cruise from San Diego to Vancouver in late May. This was our second stop after Santa Barbara. We arrived at Fisherman’s Wharf by tender boat and it was still early in the morning when we docked so it was not very...More

Enjoyed browsing the shops and menus at old Fishermans wharf. I was expecting something a little bigger but it was mainly food outlets and souvenir shops. Lovely views overlooking the sea from many of the restaurants

Visited the wharf while making a trip to Stanford Hospital. Been here many times. Stores and restaurants to visit. Great ocean views. Parking is available however there is a fee. You can park at the wharf and tale a free trolley to cannery row.

The entrance has great California history. The wharf has tons of neat places to eat and drink. Lots of curio/souvenir shops. And you can hop a boat and see the whales. What more does one want?

Good place to visit during the afternoon. Lots of shops for buying souvenirs and some nice places to eat. Not to expensive. Good place to park your car is in front of the naval graduation academy. It's free there and only 10 minutes walking.

By far, this is not my favorite place to visit in Monterey, just simply due to the usual crowds of people, but strangely, I am drawn to it each time I go to Monterey. This a great place to people watch, check out shops filled...More

Lots of choice of free chowder samples and lots of restaurants, which you would expect. Good viewing area for the seals. A short walk away is Pete’s Brew Bar, which was a good find, serving good beer, snacks and happy hour between 4-6pm😉

Taste them all, then follow your nose. From NICE sit-down dining to quick take away meals, this is a fun place to visit. Surrounded by kayakers and sea lions (or maybe seals), most of the restaurants have views worth the extra price of their food....More
