My husband and I were taking a walk along the seafront and decided to pop into this restaurant for a meal, based solely on the menu in the window and the number of people inside. We weren't disappointed. I had fish and chips and my husband had shrimp and chips and both meals were delicious. The view was out of... More

We had dinner here. Spouse had seafood combo plate. The shrimp were perfect, the fish was a bit greasy, popcorn shrimp were all batter and the calamari was a sin against nature, fried beyond recognition. I had the sand dabs cooked perfectly, a rice pilaf that was flavorful, and inedible vegetables swimming in grease. Chowder was pretty good but devoid... More

We both had the fish fry which was excellent and the views here of the water are amazing. We will return if we come this way again. Morro Bay does... More

We stopped in here because of the trip advisor review. I ordered fresh halibut, clam chowder and salad. The clam chowder would have been perfect without the smoky bacon flavor. The halibut was good except for the salty flavor transferred to the fish from a previously grilled item. The waitress was apologetic and offered to get me something else when... More

My husband enjoyed his fish and chips (did take the substitute onion rings) very much . The shrimp cocktail appetizer is so large I made it my meal. The servers were helpful and friendly.

We were late eating and opted for chowder and a salad. The chowder in a bread bowl was very good and the salad with chicken and fresh fruit was quite tasty. Service was fast and attentive.
