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

This place has a great view of the water. There's no outside seating, but you can watch the seagulls and boats up close from inside the glassed-in dining room. I had the fish and chips as well as the chowder. It wasn't the best fish and chips I've ever had, but it was great for lunch. The fish was good,... More

Disappointed when we were told the fish was fresh but it was dry and tasted like it was frozen. The main course was basic. The location of the restaurant is very picturesque. The most enjoyable part of the meal was the chowder.

Great American has been my favorite for 35 years, and it has always been good. Always a place I could take friends to and know it would be great. The last couple of years, the prices have gone way up and the quality is less consistent. During this visit, I paid $32.00 for grilled halibut (at lunchtime) and it was... More

It's pricey but top quality in every way. Waterfront views. The finest dining, especially seafood, cooked to perfection.

The dining room has bay views and the owner can usually be found making sure everything is top notch. Nice little bar with the requisite sports on TV with a mix of locals and tourists. No A holes in the bar, just laid back as it should be. The food is excellent.
