Lobster, prawn - all sorts of fish dishes beautifully served by charming staff. Lobster being served next to us, looked really appetising. View is fabulous to add to it. Enjoy a pleasant afternoon.

We were a group of 10. We were seated in the outside area quiet quickly and drink orders taken right away. Our waiter was attentive, cheerful and fun. The food was out in no time and was hot and very tasty and a good portion. Some of us had a desert, some not - there was no pressure to be... More

This restaurant sits at the end of a pier right on the water in the Cannery Row area. The food is very good, but a bit pricey. It offers a great view while dining. Service a brisk. It is usually very crowded so be prepared to wait. We would definitely go back.

The view, sitting at the end of the pier, after dark was great. The food was terrible. I had crab cakes as an appetizer - the taste and preparation was average. Then fish and chips for an entree. I'm a big fan of fish and chips. It tasted like it had been frozen for months and then not cooked properly.... More

I dined at Fish Hopper with two grandchildren. Rather than relegate us to a back room table, we were offered a window seat with spectacular views of the bay--sea otters, seals, and even a spouting and breaching whale. We were all pleased with our dinners, including a fresh tuna poke appetizer, coconut shrimp with a sweet and spicy sauce, Parmesan... More

This place was on my must do list for its 'Ultimate Seafood Bloody Mary'. Crab-stuffed olives, a warm bacon- wrapped prawn, a sweet and succulent oyster, a hot pepper, a half-lemon stuffed with dungeness crab and a delicious little crab slider with a house slaw. The drink itself is made with a house mix and a healthy dose of Stoli.... More

This restaurant was a little pricey for someone on a budget but the food was great, the view was amazing and our server was the best, she made sure we had everything we needed and that it was to our liking. We are looking forward to going back when things aren't so tight. I can definitely recommend this restaurant.

I sat at the bar, ordered a beer and some fish and chips. Those were terrible. Those were made with breadcrumbs instead of egg battered. Service was slow and arrogant. It's a tourist trap.
