Super freshly made breakfast. Bacon and sausage cooked to order, big portions. The outside dining could be nicer, but overall amazing atmosphere.

1* Ketch Joannes Princeton Looking for place to lunch. Asked waitress for a menu to look at. She said she was too busy and didn't have any assistance. We just left. Don't need rude service from the get-go

A nice place for a casual seafood meal, everything is fresh and tasty. It is located right in the harbor so of course it has a nice atmosphere.

Ketch has great food any time of the day, but breakfast is our favorite. They also make a killer blood mary at the Harbor Bar.

Enjoyed the calamari and fresh veggies! Price was good and service was decent. Seems like everywhere in half moon bay is hiring so I'm sure they're moving as fast as they can. Good idea to hit Mavericks Surf Shop next door!

We decided to have late dinner after checking in to the hotel; we arrived at 9:55PM on Sunday, just 5 minutes from closing and they took us in with open arms. We ordered fried calamari, fish and chips and cioppino, they were all good.
