The fish and chips was below average. Not very good at all. The clam chowder was ok, but not as good as Splash. Tried to get the awning fixed to get the sun out of our eyes, or server said he couldn't. I decided to try and another server gave me a major attitude. I will never come back,

Enjoyed watching sail boats compete in Morro Bay while having lunch. Lunch menu a bit more limited than I expected. I had BLT which had almost too much bacon. My husband had a melt and enjoyed it with a garden salad on the side. Would return for breakfast or lunch..

This is more of a bar with food. The lunch was ok. The evening is probably nice with music and snacks but it is not great for lunch.

We didn't eat here but stopped by for a drink to listen to the live music. Nice place to hang out, great service. Music catered to the 50+ crowd with a few dancers on the floor. Looks like a local favorite. Will come again next time we are in town.

My wife and I had the calm chowder which were both good. We sat at a table overlooking the bay. They also have a few tables outside. There is a stage for a band and a full bar.

My husband and I called in for one drink and stayed for about 4. We didn't eat there (except for some fries) so can't comment on the food but the staff were attentive and friendly and the beers were good. There was also really good fun band on so there was lots of laughs and dancing. I'd happily go back... More

Great place to stop for a drink & burger, and there is an awesome view of the water from here! Its a good place to watch football games!

We didn't eat here only popped in for a couple of cold ones after a day on the water. Service was great and bar staff were friendly. Live music kept us entertained and appealed to a varied taste. Food smelt and looked good but really can't comment further.

Nothing extraordinary here. Same food that can be had at any location in the vicinity. Service was okay as well. My fish and chips featured fish that was very chewy.
