The clam chowder and the onion rings are to die for. The staff very courteous and helpful, the sandwiches huge. The coconut shrimp was some of the best we've ever had. Indoor and outdoor dining. Very nice.

Saw the mixed reviews and was a little worried, but the food was good. Fish tacos were great as were the fried fish, calamari, and the crab omelet. Relaxing view with a band at lunch. Usually pier food isn't so good , but this was...More

Had the best fish and chips I've had in many years! My son said the enchiladas were very good too. Sitting outside on the pier really felt like a vacation. Will come back again the next time we visit Avila Beach.
