We have eaten here many times. Great breakfast, great view overlooking the ocean. We just love the clam chowder, consistently wonderful, hot sourdough bread with butter and salad! Very nice interior also.

The food was very good, but the view was spectacular and of course dominated by the Morro Rock. Our breakfast was very tasty and met our needs perfectly. When I asked a question about concerns regarding my gluten free diet the chef came out immediately...More

The food here was just okay, a little overpriced for the quality. The quality of the food is in lines with what you might order at Macaroni Grill but with a better view.

It's up the stairs from the busy Embarcadero and a long-time Morro Bay fixture that draws local regulars. Of the half-dozen meals we had during a brief trip, this delivered the most taste and value for the money. My spouse had crab louie salad --...More

Views outstanding. Service efficient and friendly. Food excellent. It was hard to choose from such a varied menu, but somehow we did.

Food and wine were better than average. Little chilly - could have used heaters, but over all top notch. Wide variety of sea food - went for the fried combination - everything was very good. Oysters were marginal, but no one is perfect.
