We have eaten here many times in the past and we still love it. They are a bit pricy but really good. The food is consistently good and there is a lot to choose from. We walked in without a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes. Our server was great and very friendly. He was knowledgeable about what was... More

Have eaten at GAFC for over 40 yrs when I'm Morro Bay. Food has always been good. Fish is mesquite grilled for great flavor. The bay/rock view is tremendous. Senior menu is priced right.

We had a wonderful dining experience. Service was great and friendly. Food very good. Best carrot cake ever!!! Macadamia nut crusted halibut is very very good! Make reservations so you don't have to wait long to be seated.

Aromatic steamed clams in garlic broth, mouth watering garlic bread and filling chowder-in-bowl clam chowder made a nice dinner for us weary travelers. The Long Island ice tea was well done and our server, Samantha, was attentive. Our table had an adorable octopus night light And unobstructed view of Morro Bay Would revisit.

The food was delicious and the location was ideal- on the water with a Birdseye view of the bay . Garlic bread was fresh, tasty and highly recommended.

We went there for lunch and ordered salmon, seafood platter, mixed skewer and sword fish. We were happy with our choices. My wife was delighted to find sider in the drinks menu. The 805 firestone beer is very good. We aslso appreciated the complimentary wifi. The total bill was 120 dollars. Quite expensive, but fair.

My order here was gotten incorrect. I ordered the mesquite broiled fish and chips, however I received the deep fried ones. I also ordered fries, which my server forgot to give me. I was very surprised at the lack of professionalism, however my server did genuinely apologize and correct the mistakes instantly.

We had a wonderful meal Sunday night at this restaurant. We ordered off the senior menu and still had more than we could eat. Salmon was wonderful as was the chicken alfredo pasta. Most excellent.

We recently went to the Great American Fish Company for an early dinner on a weekday. We were surprised at how quickly the restaurant filled up at 5:00 pm. It is a convenient location for locals and tourists alike, with plenty of parking nearby. The view of Morro Bay and the Rock is great. This restaurant has a regular dinner... More

Fabulous food, good service, reasonable prices. Went there twice. Had the fish and chips and the snapper. Would recommend both.
