Enjoyed the clam chowder very much again but made the mistake of also ordering their Cobb Salad. I think I've finally figured out that a Cobb Salad is not the same on the Central Coast as it is in the rest of the state. I'm used to a Cobb that has romaine on the bottom and avacados, egg, bacon, tomatoes,... More

We are locals and come here often. The food is always good, the staff friendly. The prices are very reasonable and there's something for everyone on the menu. The location right at the pier is great.
