Many local seafood restaurants along the water. If you like fresh seafood it doesn't get any better or tastier than the this.

My second time here. It's a convenient place to visit just off cannery row but can get crowded during the summer or peak times. They have a seafood market in addition to the food. I've only tried the fish and chips, fried calamari/prawns. They were all pretty tasty. Average selection of beer. Customer service is average and could be improved... More

Wife and I stopped in to try their BBQ oysters. We were not disappointed! They actually bake the Oysters rather than BBQ on a grill. We asked them to add cheese which they did for us. The Oysters were served nice and hot, cheese melted and ready to eat. The Oysters were the freshest and best tasting oysters we have... More

Go to Vivolo's Chowder House instead. This is a Fish Market with like 20 seats. Chowder was horrible, very watery, doesn't even coat the back of a spoon, potatoes were hard in the soup, crunchy, weird. Steamed clams was about 12 in a huge bowl of broth with tomatoes and red onion. The broth had no flavor, tasted like water... More

Great food, friendly service and a great price. We had crab salad and shrimp salad and both were heavy on the seafood.

With a plethora of seafood restaurants in Monterey, it may be difficult to determine where to find "a good place to eat," but we were lucky to be staying a block or two away from this gem. I’d say 1/2 or 3/4 of the customers who came in were locals, grabbing lunch or picking up some fresh seafood. We ordered... More

I really like coming here. It's been my "new" go-to place for sea food in Monterey. The fish is really fresh, it is cooked well and the ambiance is casual and real. The best part is that you're paying for the product, not the pretentiousness like on Cannery row. Sea Harvest is only two blocks off of Cannery and worth... More

Yes, it was the week after Christmas. Yes it as a Wednesday afternoon around 1 pm. But, the place was standing room only with a 40 minute wait to eat! We have come here numerous times to eat and it did not disappoint this time either! My wife had the scallops and I had the calamari steak. Both were excellent!... More

While visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium we stumbled upon this seafood market / restaurant just off Cannery Row. Though there were a hundred seafood places on the wharf and the Main Street this one had some nice reviews. It's a family owned non-descript place with convenient parking just far enough away from the main strip. The freshly caught fish is... More

Every time we are in Monterey we make a point to eat at the Sea Harvest Restaurant. Sometimes twice in one trip! This last visit, we were once again, not disappointed. This restaurant is cozy and charming, it is actually half fish market, half restaurant. There are only about 10 tables or so (at a guess), so it is very... More
